Deadmau5 Shows Off New Analog Studio Setup
Deadmau5 posted the above photo on Instagram over the weekend to showcase his newest additions to his home studio. Having already been in possession of a variety of analog, modular synths and sequencers, the DJ born Joel Zimmerman has made some impressive new improvements. Tech nerds, feast your eyes.
Zimmerman is putting this new hardware to some good use. During a Reddit Ask Me Anything session on January 22, Deadmau5 revealed he is currently working on follow-up to his 2013 7 EP (a release comprised solely of piano progressions). The new release is themed around the seven deadly sins, he said. The new material may comprise solely modular synths, which he noted, "is a nice contrast to the piano only 'sins'."
In typical Deadmau5 fashion, he will continue to expand his state-of-the-art studio "until someone comes here and does a 2 year long study of the rare blue spotted salamander... who is still unavailable for comment."When asked about what his favorite part of producing music was, he responded, "sonic experimentation... sometimes to me, its more about the timbre of the sound, much less the melody."
As one of the most talented and innovative producers in the electronic music world, you can expect whatever he concocts in his new studio to be a truly impressive release. On the touring side, Deadmau5 will be hitting the road once festival season kicks in. Having been announced as a headliner on The Governors Ball and Bonnaroo lineups, festivalgoers can expect to hear some of his new work in a live setting.
