DNA Magazine - - MUSIC REVIEWS -

This month’s theme seems to be about artists who’ve changed their name to some­thing catchy. In this case Deadmau5 (FYI: the “5” is said like an “s”) is mild-man­nered Joel Zim­mer­man who, for the last decade, has been twist­ing and taunt­ing the dance scene with his ex­er­cises in great mu­sic, to­tal self-in­dul­gence and crap­ping on other celebri­ties. This is his eighth proper al­bum of sorts and an­other jour­ney into the fu­ture of trance. 4ware starts off the pro­ceed­ings with lots of thump­ing stops along the EDM high­way, but the best bits are when our Mouse­head tries on dif­fer­ent hats, like the min­i­mal­ist elec­tron­ica of Cat Thruster, or the Moby-ish Snow­cone.
