For all his Twitter beefs, offensive comments about other artists and generally acting like a bit of a meanie, it turns out that deep down, beneath the mau5head, the tatts and the supercars, Deadmau5 is actually a really nice guy.
We’ve been doing a little research today in the lead-up to a ‘five moments that defined Deadmau5’s career’ piece, and figured that we may as well ask the man himself for some input.
What an awesome response from such a talented guy. It really is lovely to hear when someone so successful and influential really does use their power for good.
In case you’re wondering what Mau5 has actually done with Make-A-Wish, it seems that among other things, he’s arranged for fans to come and meet him, attend his shows and even get them up on stage.
Another act of kindness recently occurred when Mau5 learnt of a fan who had been brutally beaten, stabbed and robbed of his DJ equipment. Deamau5 found out and sent him a new MacBook Pro and some brand new, state of the art production equipment. Read more here.
What a dude!
Today sees the release of ‘5 Years of Mau5,’ a double-album compilation celebrating the last five years of Deadmau5’s music. The first album is a ‘best of’ of sorts, while the second album contains a bunch of stellar remixes from the likes of Dillon Francis, Chuckie, Madeon and more.
