Park City Live


In the two years since his last album, Canadian superstar producer deadmau5 has undergone a lot of changes. He moved from the city life of Toronto, where he couldn’t drive any of his car collection over 20 MPH due to traffic and congestion, to a farm in the country where he has chickens, ducks, goats and a 33-year-old horse named Joey. 

deadmau5, real name Joel Zimmerman, estimates “eighty percent” of his sixth studio album, W:/2016ALBUM/ was made in the new place.   Earlier this year he debuted online his new award-winning studio in his country home. The studio, designed by Pilchner Schoustal, features a sound system with two mounted ATC 300 speakers, a series of ATC 25 ceiling speakers, a 5.1 and 7.1 mid field surround system and 11.3 Dolby Atmos system.

For those radio announcers and TV hosts who need to say the name of the album aloud, it is pronounced ‘W drive 2016 album,’ named after the drive on the computer where the album was located.  The 11-song collection starts with the old-school electronic vive of “4Ware,” pronounced “Aware,” a track Zimmerman cryptically says was “written for another project.” He adds, “It’ll all make sense eventually.” Even without knowing the song’s origins his fans went crazy for the nine-minute track when he uploaded it online this past March.

The album is a mix of material written over the last few years. He says “Cat Thruster” has “like eight different versions.” One of the album’s centerpiece selections, the 11-minute and-30 second “Let Go” features moody atmospheric vocals from Grabbitz.  Originally released as an instrumental called “Silent Picture,” the indie vocalist/song-writer created a bootleg vocal for the track, then renamed “Blood For the Bloodgoat.”  Today it stands revised as the album-worthy “Let Go.”
