Joel Thomas Zimmerman was born January 5, 1981. His stage name is deadmau5 which is pronounced "dead mouse." Joel is a Canadian record producer and DJ from Toronto, Ontario working in variety of styles within the progressive house genre and sometimes other forms of electronic music. His music career began in the 1990s and he chose his name because a mouse died inside his computer. "Get Scraped" released on July 26, 2005 was Joel's first album nearly ten years after he started trying to make music.
Joel has received six Grammy Award nominations for his music and has worked with other DJs and producers, such as Kaskade, MC Flipside, Rob Swire, Wolfgang Gartner, Duda, Tommy Lee, and DJ Aero. Deadmau5 is currently one of the highest paid electronic music producers in the world according to Forbes. His albums include Vexillology, mau5trap, Random Album Title, For Lack of a Better Name, 4x4=12, > album title goes here <, Astralwerks, 7 EP, while (1<2), and W:/2016ALBUM/. My favorite songs by Deadmau5 are My Pet Coelacanth and Infra Turbo Pigcart Racer.
