A producer of electronic house or dance music, Joel Zimmerman's work has been included in various compilation albums and films. Although he had produced a single some years prior to 2005, his first solo album came with the release of Get Scraped. Previously, this Canadian artist worked as a DJ. After his first solo album, he continued to work on his solo career, with Vexillology hitting the scene in 2006. Thanks to the success of these first two albums, Deadmau5 got his mainstream EDM breakthrough in 2008 with Random Album Title. The work went gold in Canada and silver in the UK. With only brief breaks in between, he has released eight studio albums as of 2016.
The Mau5 Persona
Zimmerman received an electronic keyboard for Christmas one year, and he promptly began playing around with various sound effects and demo tunes, creating his own unique sounds and beats. Although he started creating chiptune tracks in the late '90s, he began working online as a programmer for a music licensing company. While working on his personal computer one day, Zimmerman found that a mouse had somehow crawled inside and died. This occurrence sparked the idea for the stylized "Deadmau5" stage name, and the rest is history.
