Joel Zimmerman, otherwise known as deadmau5 is one of the world’s most respected electronic music producers today. The Canadian platinum-selling producer has five critically acclaimed albums under his belt: ‘> album title goes here <‘, ‘4×4=12’, ‘For Lack Of A Better Name’, ‘Random Album Title’ and ‘while (1<2)’, his latest serving ‘W:/2016ALBUM’ is set to follow suit. His first release as an independent artist via his own mau5trap imprint, ‘W:/2016ALBUM’ is a collection of compositions ranging from atmospheric to techno to old-school synths with NME calling it,
“a judicious side-step away from the plasticky insta-rush of EDM, it finds Zimmerman rebuilding his sound around the huge collection of classic and rare synths he’s lovingly assembled in his new studio.”
