A juggernaut of DC events. Deadmau5 returns to Washington DC to spin at The Fillmore Silver Spring for 2 days of madness on 9/21 and 9/22.
The effect Deadmau5 has had on dance music is something of legend. After being named breakthrough DJ/producer of 2007 by Armin van Buuren and Tiesto, Deadmau5 entered the top 100 in 2008 at #11. He has only climbed since then, now sitting comfortably at #4 (behind Armin, David Guetta and Tiesto).
His stage shows are known for their immense grandeur, highlighted by custom LED stages and one-of-a-kind lighting displays. More of a technological instrumentalist than DJ, the Mau5 utilizes the most current DJ technology to sample, remix, edit and even produce live on the fly. And let’s not forget about his signature mouse helmet!
His mainstream appeal is a mystery to some, as his production and performance style have maintained their integrity by remaining full of bass-heavy electro synths. Deadmau5 is one of the very few artists that both casual mainstream listers as well as hardcore music snobs love. The music and experience are just that good.
