In less than a year, Canadian based wiz-kid Deadmau5 has gone from near obscurity to receiving the accolade of Producer Of The Year; beating various supremos to the top spot, whilst becoming the number one selling artist on Beatport and the most in demand producer on the face of the planet. 'Not Exactly' and 'Faxing Berlin’ have amassed over 30,000 sales between them on Beatport alone, with the former hitting the top spot for six weeks. He has a sound that's hard to describe, and one that transcends various genres of music, flirting with techno and minimal whilst hinting at tech house, trance and electro. There is the concept of his new live show that has recently been incorporated into his sets across the globe. Operating off a laptop with a Lemur, Anomaly and visual effects, this full live stage show is set to change the face of live dj performances as we know it. And there is the tailor made giant Mau5head complete with powerful strobe lighting eyes. Catch Deadmau5 at Tripod on October 17th. Doors at 11pm. Tickets are priced €20 from ticketmaster and usual outlets.
