Artist of the year : Deadmau5

He has been voted #1 DJ in the world by BeatPort.. Joel Zimmerman doesn’t like being called a DJ. The 28-year-old dance music phenomenon from Toronto, better known as Deadmau5, rolls his eyes a the description, which he sees as a hopelessly outdated way of describing what he does. His sets are closer to live performances. He plays mostly his own material, assembling tracks on the fly, using cutting edge computer technology, including software he’s helped write himself. “There are no CDs involved,” he explains. “It’s a technological orgy up there and I try and keep it more my music than anyone else’s. If people come out to see Deadmau5 I want them to hear Deadmau5 music.
In 2005, deadmau5 released his first album, “Get Scraped.” His latest album is “4x4=12,” released in 2010.He has worked with a number of artists both underground and mainstream - including Melleny Melody, Orgy,Kaskade, MC Flipside, Rob Swire of Pendulum, Skrillex, and Steve Duda. Deadmau5 was ranked #6 on the DJ Mag Top 100 DJ Poll 2009, and #4 in 2010 In 2009, he was nominated for Grammy Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical (“The Longest Road” (Deadmau5 Remix) by Morgan Page featuring Lissie). In 2010, he won 3 awards from the international dance music awards.
Deadmau5 is on a dizzying upward trajectory. Dance music just got very exciting again.His forthcoming shows are on the 13th of may at I-Club, Shanghai, China, and later on the 14th at : New Taipei Exhibition Hall, Taipei City, Taiwan, and on the 29th  at  XS Nightclub at The Wynn, Las Vegas.
