Beats 1 Announces New deadmau5 Show ‘mau5trap presents’

by

Popular music producer and performer Joel Thomas Zimmerman, most popularly known as deadmau5, is set to join Apple Music's Beats 1 radio station this Friday. The 35-year-old artist will have his own show, called "mau5trap presents," debuting at 3PM PST on Friday, March 18.

Besides the announcement tweet via the Beats 1 account, no other specifics regarding the content of mau5trap presents were given. Still, considering the genre and work Zimmerman is known for, there will probably be a heavy focus on electronic dance music in the show. It's also unclear whether or not Zimmerman will be given a recurring presence on Beats 1 or if mau5trap presents is a one-off performance.

Although Zimmerman has supported Apple at iTunes Music Festivals in the past, last year the Canadian artist was mostly seen in public support of Jay-Z's streaming service TIDAL, joining the ranks of artists like Rihanna and Kanye West who also support the platform. The specifics of his deal with Apple remain unclear, but due to a recent public feud with West over the latter's alleged piracy of various music creation software and albums, it seems that Zimmerman's original backing of TIDAL is slowly being rescinded.

Deadmau5 will join artists like Dr. Dre, Pharrell, Major Lazer, and Haim, who've all had shows on the Beats 1 station on Apple Music. In an interview recently, Beats 1 radio host Zane Lowe spoke on the artistic freedom that Apple allows of its Beats 1 creators, claiming that Apple Music doesn't place any restrictions or rules on them or their specific shows, letting the hosts play whatever they want in their designated slot.

Couldn't care less.

Upvoting you for not saying "Could care less". That, and neither could I.

Wow, I can't think of anything I'd rather listen to less.

Maybe Fran Drescher and Yoko Ono singing while dragging nails across a chalkboard, but that's a tossup.

You know, I get some people dig this and if I'm not the demographic, then cool, I won't listen. But what I DO wish is that Apple starts to cater to some of it's admittedly smaller group of people who wouldn't mind a jazz-focused show, or some kind of 70s channel or singer-songwriter stuff. I've listened to Beats 1 for all of 20 minutes, and I get it--it's not for me. How about launching Beats 2 for people who know how to spell and don't go by aliases? It's been a year, give us something different.

...and get off my lawn.

Really? Not knowing how to read "deadmau5" is still a thing? Are you people in your 70s?

I'm just under half that age range. I know the 5 is meant to be an S. I'm completely aware of how the name is intended to be pronounced.

And despite knowing all that, I still can't stop myself from reading it in my head as "Deadmau five".
