Interview: Deadmau5 hits Wonderland, at Eden, Ibiza

Mon 04.08.2008

The faMau5 Canadian aka Joel Zimmerman speaks to Lorna Cole from Pikes Hotel near San Antonio before taking to the decks at Pete Tong's Wonderland party. In between chasing geckos, Joel tells us the tragic tale of the dead mouse that made his computer blue and all about picking up EFX tips from chief geek James Zabiela. An eclectic music lover whose rise as Deadmau5 over the last couple years has been stratospheric, Joel also heads up the label Mau5trap Recordings. 2008 alone has seen Joel win a Juno Award for Dance Recording of the Year (for Billy Newton-Davis vs. Deadmau5 ‘All U Ever Want’) and several gongs from Beatport (including Best Single, for ‘Not Exactly’, Best Electro House Artist, Best Progressive House Artist and Most Influential Person).
