A very dedicated fan captured deadmau5‘s full performance as his deeper, darker alter ego Testpilot at weekend two of Electric Forest. Following a mau5trap takeover of the Tripolee stage, with guests ATTLAS, Blackgummy, Chris LakeClaptone, Jeremy Olander, Rinzen and Lane 8, the mau5trap label head emerged with his lesser seen, techno-favoring style and smashed his audience to bits.

Clocking in just under two hours, this fan even posted the full tracklist in the video’s details.

Electric Forest is Insomniac’s take on a camping, transformational-inspired festival. It’s known for its enchanting grounds and friendly crowd, drawing people from all over the country to its Michigan location.

Deadmau5 cancels Toronto show, reschedules as TESTPILOT

This post was originally published on this site

From his two-part tour, marrying his fiancé, and revealing the latest multi-million dollar version of his legendary stage cube structure, Joel Zimmerman has had a busy year. Better recognized by his stage name, deadmau5, the Canadian producer has just embarked on the second leg of his Lots of Shows in a Row (Part 2) tour, playing his first show in Windsor, closest to the Detroit border.

With unexpected obstacles in the way before his hometown show on the horizon, Zimmerman was forced to cancel his Toronto show, the second of the tour.

Due to unforeseen production limitations at the venue, we have been forced to cancel the Deadmau5 show in Toronto on October 8th. As this is a home town show for Deadmau5, it is of paramount importance that all necessary production details are fully vetted in order to deliver the full effect of the Cube show. However, it has been determined by our production team that we will be limited from being able to put on the show properly. Deadmau5 fully intends to return to Toronto in the near future to present this show as it was meant to be seen.

Met with disappointment by fans from across the province, Zimmerman was quick to figure out a solution and plans to return for a show under his techno alias, TESTPILOT. Accompanied by mau5trap artist Attlas for this one-of-a-kind occasion, Torontonians are in for a treat with the rarity of techmau5, and the promise of deadmau5 returning for a full-fledged affair in the near future.


Tickets for the event are available online.

Deadmau5 provides full TESTPILOT set for June BBC Radio 1 Residency

This post was originally published on this site

Though Joel Zimmerman’s highly-anticipated TESTPILOT set at Movement was cut criminally short due to technical issues stemming from the rain, the truncated performance which he was able to provide under his techno alter-ego showed a great deal of promise. To make up for the inevitable setbacks of the show, deadmau5 announced his attention earlier in the week to re-record the mix and broadcast it on his BBC Radio 1 Residency program. Yesterday, June 1, Zimmerman delivered on this promise, dedicating the first hour and a half of the serial mix to the setlist he’d planned for his official TESTPILOT solo debut.

The TESTPILOT mix draws from the breadth of some of techno’s biggest influencers, including Maceo Plex, Pig&Dan, Phil Kieran, and Julian Jeweill. Zimmerman also ensures to keep his finger on the pulse of the techno’s brightest rising stars, drawing from the likes of Raxon and highlighting three songs from Rrose. In its full form, TESTPILOT’s set proves that Zimmerman is, indeed, able to proffer a set as his techno alias that rivals the quality of his sets as deadmau5. Hopefully, there will be more chances to catch the side-project onstage in the near future.

For the final 25 minutes of the broadcast, the artist donned his deadmau5 persona to highlight recent mau5trap hits, including REZZ’s remix of No Mana and Zashanell’s “Clear” and Feed Me, Kill The Noise, and Anjulie’s “Crazy Maybe.” Zimmerman concludes the broadcast with cuts from Lane 8 and a remix of Edu Imbernon and Duologue from Undercatt.

On Sunday, May 28, deadmau5 performed his long-awaited Movement headlining set as TESTPILOT, his techno-driven alter-ego. Unfortunately, technical difficulties due to weather-related issues disrupted much of the set, leading to another widely-discussed comedic onstage rant.

However, despite the inevitable impediments which Joel Zimmerman faced Sunday night did not prevent him from doing a spectacular job with the hand he was dealt. Outside of the hindrance of Detroit’s rain, the set which TESTPILOT purveyed was genuinely astounding.

At its peaks, as one would expect, the combination of Zimmerman’s sharp tastes with his mixing finesse and production resources yielded an impeccable techno show on the country’s largest stage for the genre. The thoughtful synchronization of the performance’s minimal visual arrangements with TESTPILOT’s cerebral, sinister track selection bore a spectacle which hopefully will be performed again soon in an unabridged live context.

Offering a silver lining to the setbacks of the performance, deadmau5 has announced that he will be re-recording his Movement set in full to be broadcast on the June episode of his BBC Radio 1 Residency show.

Though, sometimes, things get complicated, it’s important not to discount deadmau5’s momentous TESTPILOT project just yet.

This post was originally published on this site

Tonight, May 28, deadmau5 will show off his taste for techno in a greater capacity than ever before with his headlining set at Detroit’s Movement Festival. Though tonight’s performance will mark Zimmerman’s official TESTPILOT billing, his intriguingly esoteric alter-ego has operated through selective sets in a de facto fashion over the years.

Easily the most prominent instance of Zimmerman’s acumen for purveying stellar techno sets is his storied b2b with the legendary Richie Hawtin at 2013’s South by Southwest. For two hours, the pair of iconic Canadian producers transformed Austin, Texas’ Stubb’s BBQ into a sonic cathedral, blending standout releases from their own musical catalogues with selections from the likes of Adam Beyer, Patrice Bäumel, Cari Lekebusch, and Joseph Capriati.

That the duo’s b2b still stands as a forward-thinking, viscerally evocative set four years later speaks volumes as to the magnitude that each of their headlining sets will hold over the course of this weekend. Until we experience TESTPILOT in full-effect, revisit this momentous b2b bout and prepare for the spectacle.
