DEADMAU5 – www.deadmau5.com
The enigmatic Canadian native Joel Zimmerman did not set out to become a groundbreaking electronic artist. He made some music and it happened to change the game and pop culture as we know it. His career has been marked by many firsts – a monumental performance during the first ever electronic music showcase during the 2012 Grammy Awards telecast…the first electronic artist to grace the cover of Rolling Stone…the first electronic artist (not to mention the first Canadian) to headline two shows at Earl’s Court in London, England… His career in web development took a detour in 2008, when his third full length album (and first for Ultra and his own Mau5trap label), Random Album Title, sent shockwaves through the musical community. Soon his music was featured everywhere, and his status solidfied with 2010’s 4×4=12 album – his first album to hit the Billboard Top 200, spending over 100 weeks on the chart. His latest release, >album title goes here<, has already shook pop culture with the singles The Veldt (based on a Ray Bradbury story) and Professional Griefers (with My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way). Along the way, Deadmau5 also saw a culture emerge around him, with over 6.5 million Facebook fans and 1.3 Twitter followers, while his cat Mewingtons has become an icon of his own, lending his name to the Mewingtons Hax Tour, not to mention his face to the cover of >album title goes here<. The influence of Deadmau5 will continue to grow…
CHRIS LAKE – www.facebook.com/chrislake
Over the last five years, the British DJ and producer has been living the dream, travelling the globe, topping charts over and over again. His sound has travelled far and wide, walking the fine line between pop crossovers like Changes and Only One, and the darker and deeper beats in his live DJ sets – albeit still peppered with his cheeky re-edits and homemade tracks. It’s the Chris Lake experience that deserves to be savoured, every time he performs.
MORD FUSTANG – www.facebook.com/mordfustang
Mord Fustang. Joy Orbison. Com Truise. Any name he chooses to use, this young producer will definitely catch the ears of anyone who hears it, and destroy any dance floor it hits. Studying music since the age of 8, Mord has taken that knowledge and infused it with the latest electronic sounds. By his own description, the Mord Fustang sound is, “An adventurously nude fluctuant immaculate rainbow-coated thunderstorm with arpeggios, 1-up mushrooms and disco basslines, plus a wobble or two – something like that.’
