The mau5trap maven himself, Joel Zimmerman (deadmau5), has now vamped his very own weekly radio show, mau5trap radio, through SiriusXM. The first edition aired late last week, September 28, featuring a fitting, hot-button guest mix from Getter, who just recently released his mau5trap-certifiedconcept album, Visceral.
The internationally-aired series is set to feature a sundry of other mau5trap talent, with debuts lined up from the label’s most auspicious acts, including REZZ, ATTLAS, No Mana, Rinzen, and more. The show has found a home on SiriusXM’s BPM (channel 51): a sacred staple in the electronic airwaves. This landmark achievement for Zimmerman and the esteemed imprint comes just one year after mau5trap’s momentous 10-year anniversary.
After a three-day period, each show will be plugged onto Mixcloud, where listeners can stream freely. Additionally, the show will air regularly across the globe, through the following mediums:
Germany – ENERGY NRJ Turkey – Radyo S – Monday 11pm Dubai – Dance FM – Tuesday 22:00 PM Mexico – Beat FM Cyprus – ENERGY NRJ (Prime time – Saturday agreed).

Skrillex is coming off of a packed weekend where he provided the last performance at NYC’s venerable Webster Hall and then found himself playing at HARD festival a few hours later. That hasn’t stopped him from starting off the week strong with a brand new track “Favor.” The producer continues to diversify his sound with his newest release, a collaboration with Vindata and NSTASIA. An electric guitar weaves in and out a consistent drum backdrop at a much slower BPM than we are accustomed to with previous Skrillex releases. NSTASIA’s vocals carry the track, and it’s the perfect change of pace for those who love Skrillex’s signature sound but also love their electronic chords mixed with a little bit of rock.
BPM’s inaugural launch at its new home in Portugal is getting closer, and hype is beginning to bubble up under the surface. Having already released the first long list of artists appearing at the festival, organizers have now added onto that with the second phase lineup, which doubles the current artist lineup and additionally boasts a whole new batch of established acts in the house and techno realm.
Art Department, Ida Engberg, and Danny Tenaglia, make up just a few of the bigger names to grace this year’s phase 2 lineup, in addition to Eats Everything, Richy Ahmed, and more. To balance out the harder acts slated to perform, BPM has also booked its usual suspects of Chaim, Bedouin, Behrouz, and more to bring their dreamy and melodic brands of house and tech into the mix.
Finally, guests are now able to catch a glimpse of some of the showcases happening as well. Lee Burridge will be hosting an All Day I Dream event, while ANTS will also be in tow with a host of stunning talent. BPM will also be bringing back its concept Ya’ah Muul party with Deep House Amsterdam as its sponsor. A full list of showcases can be seen below the artist lineup.
