Joel Zimmerman, more commonly known as deadmau5 (pronounced 'dead mouse'), is one of the world's most respected electronic music producers of modern times. Enjoying international chart success with his singles "Professional Griefers," "Sofi Needs A Ladder," "Ghosts 'n' Stuff" and "I Remember," he has also released four critically acclaimed albums: >album title goes here<, 4×4=12, For Lack Of A Better Name and Random Album Title. The multiple JUNO Award-winning and Grammy-nominated artist performed at the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards as part of its first ever telecast performance highlighting electronic music. His ability to push the boundaries of his talent grows at an equal rate to his fan base, which counts over 6.8 million on his Facebook page. A major touring act, he has headlined Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Sonar, Virgin Mobile FreeFest and Ultra Music Festival, and sold out Rogers Centre in Toronto and PETCO Park in San Diego, as well as multiple consecutive nights at legendary venues like the Roseland Ballroom in NYC and the Palladium in Los Angeles. In 2013, he will embark on a major world tour that includes headlining slots at Lollapalooza Chile and Lollapalooza Brazil. Earlier this year he appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone (summer double issue, 2012), marking him as the first electronic artist to do so.
