Joel Zimmerman, the genius behind Deadmau5, is clearly a temperamental DJ/Producer. Recently, he has been very opinionated about his pessimistic views on the electronic dance music scene. His criticism towards other celebrities, DJ’s, labels, and fans has been quite controversial. He has also been avoiding some of the big time festivals in the U.S. like Ultra and Electric Daisy Carnival. However, whether you agree with him or not, you cannot deny that he is one of the best producers of all time. Since he hasn’t been performing at many of the large events I haven’t been able to get my hands on any of his live sets and it is driving me crazy because he is a sensational live performer. Thankfully, about a week ago Deadmau5 performed at Sonar Music Festival in Barcelona, Spain. I had a chance to listen to the set this morning and it gave me the chills on more than a few occasions. Seeing Deadmau5 live should be on every EDM fan’s bucket list and you will see why with this set. I have also included a video of the full set so you can experience his visuals as well.
