Deadmau5 hypes 2013 live show: “All I can say is, holy f*ck”
The last time we saw Deadmau5 ‘round these parts was on the 2011 Creamfields tour, closing the mainstage with his Rubik’s Cube live show. From there, the man in the mau5-head Joel Zimmerman continued to add new firepower to the set-up. Lollapalooza in August 2011 was the first run of the newly jacked-up Deadmau5 show, which added three video cubes encircling the central podium, a towering screen as a backdrop and four LED-lined scaffolds. As we pointed out at the time, it looked pretty insane.
At the tail end of 2011, inthemix sent one lucky competition winner to New York’s Roseland Ballroom to witness the live show at full capacity. “A 100,000-watt visual mind-fuck on crack,” is how he summed it up. “It was tied perfectly to mind-blowing lights and a visual display like I’ve never seen before and all the while there was a bopping yellow mau5 head symmetrically centered in the booth.”
Since that incarnation of the Cube, though, the full Deadmau5 production has been lying low. In 2013, Zimmerman is returning with something even more spectacular. He’s set to headline Miami’s Ultra Music Festival in March alongside a huge line-up, and you can expect more dates to follow.
As it turns out, this tour is going to be the biggest yet. “I just saw preliminary renders/movies of the new HUGE stage for the next big 2013 tour, and all I can say is HOLY FUCK,” Deadmau5 told his followers. “Wow. My god, I’ve NEVER seen ANYTHING like this in my life, and I can NOT wait to unleash this insanity upon the world. Stoked beyond belief.”
Listen: Julio Bashmore and Hyetal team up for new Velour track
Christmas has passed and all those awkward hometown get-togethers with old friends have gone with it. But one good ol’ knees-up that’d likely be far from uncomfortable is when this what we have right here happened.
Bristol producers Julio Bashmore and Hyetal team up once again for a new track under their combined Velour moniker. Following their 2010 EP on Night Slugs, ‘Speedway’ is set to be released shortly on Bashmore’s very own Broadwalk Records.

TV company behind Jersey Shore launches EDM Reality Show
Remember Simon Cowell’s idea for a dance music reality TV show a little while back? He thankfully scrapped plans for such a show but now casting is open for an “Electronic Dance Music reality/competition show”.
A website called edmcasting.com has appeared and looks to have been set up by Doron Ofir Casting, the company behind mainstream reality TV shows like Jersey Shore.
The site is inviting wannabe DJs to put themselves forward in the hope of being involved. Interested selectors have to apply by answering questions such as “What innovations do you bring to your genre / format?” and “BRAG! What are your best assets? Physical, material and social”.
We’re expecting this to be big, brash and probably quite funny. Is the world quite ready for an EDM reality show?!
