Posted on 7th December 2012 | Fashion News

Are you ready for the weekend?! Are you an electro-house fan? Then it’s time to head over to the Godzilla of all nightclubs, XS Las Vegas, and join music sensation deadmau5 for a late night, unhooked, live DJ set!

As FashionTV prepares for our brand new Night Life Awards (NLA) -- giving you, our viewers the chance to vote for your favorite DJs, nightclubs, promoters, and cities around the world -- this weekend we take off our hats to NLA nominee, deadmau5, to kick-start the weekend madness!

deadmau5 puts on a show of a lifetime in the streets of London

Deadmau5 got his unusual name, after claiming to have found a dead mouse on his video card whilst cleaning out his computer! And now the world know him for his iconic name and headpieces, or “mou5head,” that he wears whilst performing.

But off-stage, his real name is Joel Zimmerman, he’s Canadian, and has been Djing and producing electro-house since the late ’90s. And this Saturday, the man of the moment is LA-bound and set to hit-up the decks at the impressive XS club for a live interactive music experience. And you can expect a fully sensational set from deadmau5, as this is no ordinary DJ!

A Musical Trickmaster

He’s currently busy conquering the American dance scene and promoting his fourth studio album “> album title goes here <,” but deadmau5 has a lot of tricks up his sleeve helping to keep him at the top of the game.

Not only does the new album see deadmau5 working with some of the world’s most intriguing voices like Grammy Award-winner Imogen Heap, Cypress Hill, and Chris James amongst others. But he often has his intimate shows recorded and broadcast on local radios, and last week collaborated with Nokia UK to bring a spectacular light and music show to the streets of London, drawing thousands to “This is Lumia.”

Meanwhile, the music maven and Heap have launched an international competition for avid graphic designers to animate a part of their official video for new track, “Telemiscommunications,” for which the winner will be selected by the DJ himself!

And if that wasn’t enough, then this coming boxing day deadmau5 will headline the CONTACT Winter Music Festival; the first ever electronic event to take place at the BC Place Stadium in Vancouver, Canada, which has previously seen the like of Madonna, U2, and Paul McCartney headlining.

Just another day on the decks for deadmau5

So the votes are in peeps, deadmau5, is the music choice of the weekend! And for those of us not in LA, there’s no excuse not to put on our party bests and groove to a bit of the ol’ trip-hop and electro beats from deadmau5!
