Deadmau5 in the hau5


DESPITE yet another appalling album title, Deadmau5‘s For Lack Of A Better Name, the follow-up to Random Album Title, is dead good.
Since his minor label compilation At Play Deadmau5, real name Joel Zimmerman, has been firmly on the Sound Advice radar – and since then the DJ’s stock has risen faster than a loaf of Viagra bread in a helium-filled oven.
It’s not really surprising that he’s caught the public’s attention, given that he makes most of his public appearances donning a giant red mouse head.
However don’t be alarmed, this is a release to take seriously.
A complete album, the LP grows from the teaser of a drumbastic intro FML into hit single territory, mainly in the form of Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff featuring Pendulum‘s Rob Swire.
Then it’s on through the deep techno and house of the likes of Bot, and into late-night anthems The 16th Hour and Strobe without a pause.
It’s stunning work by the Canadian – in fact For Lack Of A Better Name will leave you lost for words.
