You have no choice but to accept it – deadmau5 is Canada’s most celebrated electronic music making fixture. Record sales, hordes of fans and a disastrous but edgy social media presence turn both ears and eyes in his direction on a nearly daily basis. Sure, much of the Canadian musician’s success has come thanks to commercially resonant productions, not to mention technological feats of live showmanship, but also for his knack to delve into the underground.

From time to time, deadmau5 resorts to becoming a techno and progressive performer known to fans as “techmau5” (the most unofficial of unofficial pseudonyms) to take listeners on a journey to the darker and deeper side of his discography. While the mau5’s live shows generally comprise of solely his own material, these select gigs instead add further less commercial flavour on behalf of other producer’s songs, and almost always Jay Lumen’s ‘LondON.’ Set aside a couple hours and browse through our gift to you – the unofficially definitive guide to “techmau5″‘s greatest sets.
