Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Da ................... yup there's those chords again. It's well produced and distinctive .. getting repetitive though. His earlier stuff's more varied.

Music by pioneers usually sound like crap but inspire people like deadmau5. They ordinarily aren't commercially successful either.

I concur. Not always like crap but generally not commercially successful.

he has some strong

he has some strong productions but its a bit rich to think one man is behind the entire future of dance music and i can think of heaps of producers that are pushing the boundarys of sound that dont get the recognition that they deserve.

I agree with str80. There are far, far more underground artists that are pushing the boundaries- defining new sounds and styles that won't be heard on commercial radio for years to come - if ever.

So, he's put a few decent tracks out in the last couple of years, but there's no way he's solely responsible for changing the face of dance music as we know it.

Unless of course you feel that the MOS annual is boundary-pushing, ground breaking stuff.........

No he's a cheese merchant in my opinion. Don't "dislike" his body of work in its entirety but have yet to hear anything I'd part with money for or choose to play in a public forum.

No, but I'd pay Deamau5 to

No, but I'd pay Deamau5 to remix one of my tracks

Ever heard of Chicane, Agnelli & Nelson, et cetera??

He's got some great tracks, no doubt, but he's not a pioneer by any means. I've heard his sound replicated many times over, before and after his arrival to the scene.

One thing he's got going for him is a recognisable sound, also. You can't mistake his synth chords. The other thing is he's got a wide appeal - people WILL dance to deadmau5.

Nope the man aint the future... although he himself even says that hes not into his sound and think its cheese (as per IDJ mag), but in saying that he reckons hes gonna come out with stuff thats entirely different and "underground"... time will tell!!!

Deadmau5 is by no way

Deadmau5 is by no way leading the "forefront" of electronic music, he has commercial viability and catchy production styles (always clean and tight, just how we like it) but there are producers out there that actually are "pushing the frontier", check Bjork, Boards of Canada, Venetian Snare, Flying Lotus, Shadow an Cut Chemist, Prodigy (still), some dub/glitch/organic producers that are using the tools of today and making music that is way ahead of most "commercial" sounding beats - shit even Ritchie Hawtin and Phil Kieren and making/mixing techno that has never been done before in ways that havn't been done before
My humble opinion echos that served up by those above, there will always be people you've never heard off making music that will, if your ever lucky enough to hear it, blow your mind

he is one of the few producers who really learns how to manipulate technology to produce fat crisp sounds

Are you serious? One of the few? Few? Who are the others? What makes his sounds fatter or crisper than other producers?

There are literally hundreds of producers out there that may never even enter your listening knowledge that are as or even more capable.
