Deadmau5 hypes new LP: “It’s the first one I’d even call an album”
In the month since he lit up Ultra Music Festival’s Main Stage with one of the weekend’s most talked-about sets, Joel Zimmerman, aka Deadmau5, has been keeping a reasonably low profile. Back in Toronto, he’s streamed a two-hour set of “actual good music” from his studio, uploaded ‘Coffee Run’ episodes with friends like Eric Prydz and Laidback Luke, and made a quick trip to Vegas.
With summer approaching, Zimmerman today let fans know that one of the year’s most-anticipated albums – actually, make that double album – will be worth the wait. With the producer’s past LPs like For Lack of a Better Name, 4×4=12 and Album Title Goes Here served more as compilations than complete artist albums, this one will be different. “It’s the first album I’ve ever done that I would even call an album,” he tweeted today, taking anticipation levels even higher.
While an exact release date for the Deadmau5 LP is still to be announced, we know it’ll come through Astralwerks, the US label also releasing albums from Duke Dumont and Porter Robinson later this year.
Speaking to inthemix back in March, Zimmerman gave a typically no-nonsense assessment of his opus: “I’m trying to just do an album that if you don’t know your fuckin’ head from your arse you’ll walk through the record store, see it and go, ‘Ah, this could be cool,’” he said. “Plus there’s a couple of tracks on there that are quite radio-friendly, not even dance music, that I’m going to put out as singles just to attract that kind of shit. So it’s a long-game strategy at this point.”

Worthy will Disbehave
Born in Washington DC, Worthy (born Sean W. Williams) arrived in San Francisco in the early 2000s from New York. He fell in with Christian and Justin Martin and Claude VonStroke, and the four went on to found Dirtybird, the bass-leaning house label that’s unquestionably been one of the West Coast’s biggest electronic music exports of the past decade. After success on that label, he founded Anabatic and has played extensively in the US and Europe.
Disbehave has been has main project for awhile now, and it’s a distillation of his fun-loving, low-end-focused house style. Have a listen to “The Words (feat. Audio Angel),” which is streaming below.
