If you haven’t heard, the man, the mouse, the legend: Deadmau5 is bringing his hot new show to San Francisco! Unveiled at Coachella this year and incorporated into MTV’s 2010 Video Music Awards last month*, Deadmau5’s new live set-up is a Daft Punk rivaling semi-cube of visual wizardry, so fully automated and synced to the mau5’s pounding beats that not only will it blow your mind, but it will sear your eyes rite out their sockets before your head fully explodes. At least that what my friend said happened to a guy when he saw the show…
* A great edited montage of all Deadmau5’s featured time on the VMAs can be found here (they disabled embedding). There are some sick remixes he did of a few pop songs that I hope eventually they see the light of day. But damn, Deamau5 “playing” the trashiest, most pop-ified award show there is? How should we feel about this? Hyped that he’s getting super huge and keeping Electro in the mainstream (he did drop a lot of his bangers) or dismayed that in his relentless quest to into the hearts, and wallets, of the masses he may loose the edge off his music? Really, I want to know what you think.
5eriously though, by all accounts this new Deadmau5 live show is not to be missed (a little video tease after the jump); and for all of us here in the Bay area we have a golden opportunity to check it out first hand. Deadmau5 will be performing live at the Treasure Island Music Festival THIS SATURDAY!
So to get us all in the mood, here’s some new mau5 track5:
