An extremely popular electronic music
producer and performer. He is Canadian
born and is currently based out of Toronto
. According to various sources deadmau5 (aka Joel Zimmerman
) was the 6th most popular "DJ
" in 2009.
Technically deadmau5 is not a disk jockey
as he performs his tracks semi-live using the program Ableton Live
and various gadgets that are not disks, and he does not ride race horses
. Therefore neither the words "disk
" or "jockey
" have anything to do with what he does with music
Some of deadmau5's more popular songs include "Ghosts n Stuff", "The Reward is Cheese", and "FML"
