Born and raised in Niagara Falls, Canada, Joel Zimmerman (aka “Deadmau5″ or “Halcyon441″) has become one of the most sought-after artists on the electronic music scene.

He first started his career as co-producer of the Niagara Falls radio show “The Party Revolution” (101.1 The Planet). After gaining exposure to all the many facets of electronic music, Joel then moved on to collaborate with many other artists and record labels in many studios throughout the globe.

‘Deadmau5′ comes from an incident where a mouse crawled into his computer and died. ‘Dead Mouse’ was too long for an IRC login name, so he abbreviated it to be the “leet speak” spelling “Deadmau5″.

In 2005, deadmau5 released his first album, “Get Scraped.” His latest album is “4×4=12,” released in 2010.

Deadmau5 has collaborated with a number of artists, including Melleny Melodya, Steve Duda, and Orgy. He has also done collaborations with top names such as Chris Lake, Glenn Morrison and Wolfgang Gartner.
