Future Music Festival 2014 Interviews: Deadmau5

While hanging around Randwick Racecourse on the day of Future Music Festival 2014 in Sydney, Music Feeds managed to run into the man in the mouse helmet himself, Mr Joel Zimmerman, best known to fans as notoriously outspoken EDM producer Deadmau5.

His recent Australian trip was the first time that fans got to see his new “cube” setup, which Joel tells us took a month of preparation in a Las Vegas warehouse to execute. He also spoke about his infamous social media presence, saying, “As someone with a lot of followers it’s really funny to just light a match and see what happens, watch the freakout.”

When the topic of discourse shifted to his new album, Joel lamented the fact that he couldn’t give it a surprise release a la Beyonce. “I gotta wait for the record label to catch on and do the two-month lead in time, like that shit still exists,” he says. He also explained his move from Ultra Records to Astralwerks. “Ultra? Fuck that, I’m not even going to give them a mention. It was like a them-EMI sort of thing, just set sail for fail. It fuckin’ sucked, the deal fuckin’ sucked, everything about it sucked. So I’m like, can we go with someone who doesn’t suck?”
