Deadmau5

Just about everyone I know went out and rode bikes this weekend. Me? I rode the pine.

Deadmau5. Dead Mouse. Just spelled different. Something about running out of characters for a login. Good save. Aside from that useless tidbit, what I know about this kid would fit on one side of a 3 x 5 card. Written in crayon. In the dark.

deadmau5_03I have two of his albums. And, I’ve absolutely played the piss out of them both over the last month and a half.

The kids is amazing. I can’t get enough of his music. I think he’s around 29 or 30 years old, so maybe I shouldn’t call him a kid. He’s a man! And he sure has put out a ton of cool music over the last few years.

Phoenix once had a dance music station I would listen to on my afternoon commute. The station went the way of the dinosaur, but their impact lives on. I heard one of his tracks there, remembered the name, didn’t know yet the odd spelling, google searched him, and the rest is, as they say, history. It went ipod, ear goggles, tune in, turn on, drop out.

I’ll post a few videos. These aren’t so much visually interesting – It’s really just the music.

Videos after the jump.

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. House is ok if you are chilling at home. Otherwise dancing or watching others dance to Deadmau5 is just kinda silly. glowstick silly

    good studying music right Jonny?

  2. i teach a spin class and deadmau5 is a standby on the playlist. riding inside sucks, but with a big sound system it is bearable…and either way its better than no riding.
