There are almost no words to describe Deadmau5 live at the Palladium.  Incredible. Mind-blowing. One-of-a-kind. Insanity.  The show this Sunday was sold-out & once the show started, it was completely clear why.  This wasn’t even a show or a performance… it was a once-in-a-lifetime multimedia experience engineered by Joel himself.  Started with sets by Zedd as well as Tommy Lee & DJ Aero, even with a surprise performance of Warp 1.9 by the Bloody Beetroots straight from England!  A look inside the cube showed just a little of what the mastermind was dealing with during the show.

The most incredible part was when Joel’s friend Adam brought out the Moog Theremin while sporting a white ghost ensemble and began to play it alongside Deadmau5 during his transition to ‘Ghosts ‘n Stuff’.  I wish everyone watching this spectacular duet would have known what was actually going on and how incredible it really was.

The theremin is almost unique among musical instruments in that it is played without physical contact. The musician stands in front of the instrument and moves his or her hands in the proximity of two metal antennas. The distance from one antenna determines frequency (pitch), and the distance from the other controls amplitude (volume). Most frequently, the right hand controls the pitch and the left controls the volume, although some performers reverse this arrangement. Some low-cost theremins use a conventional, knob operated volume control and have only the pitch antenna. While commonly called antennas, they are not used for receiving or broadcasting radio frequency, but act as plates in a capacitor.

As well as a few stellar performances by Sofi, Joel even got on stage with her and did a little dance for the crowd before running back up to his cube to continue the show.  The graphics on the four cubes (one huge cube that Mau5 was in as well as one above and one to each side) looked like they were actually compressing and rotating to the beat of the music.

There are so many that go to see Mau5 but there are few that actually know what goes into his shows, or should even call it a performance.  He isn’t just playing CD’s, spinning records, he truly is orchestrating his own symphony; from his bass line’s that make your feet rumble, to every kick that makes your heart jolt.  His 5sound’5 are so clean and untouchable, he is truly a sound engineering God.  Deadmau5 is our generation’s Mozart, Beetles or Beethoven. Our generation’s Einstein.

Get it while it’s HOT! Kaskade just released this mash up, “Coming Home at 4 AM (Kaskade Mash Up)” which we are dying over!  After seeing Diddy surprise the crowd at Ultra last week with a performance of ‘Coming Home’, we can’t get enough of every artists take of this track.  The vocals are eerily orgasmic to the ears.

Download the new track here.
