DJ-producer, Carnage, has been in full speed this year, releasing plenty of new music and performing in all parts of the globe. It is no surprise that the hardstyle/trap DJ has finally decided to take a break from the dance music industry. The popular music maker took to Instagram to announce his temporary hiatus, stating
After announcing an indefinite hiatus from social media to focus on mental health, deadmau5 provided an update via Twitter for fans regarding his progress and the status of previously scheduled tour dates. According to the mau5trap boss, he seems to be getting exactly what he needs out of his commitment to his psychological well-being after receiving hefty backlash over his longstanding, highly controversial interactions with both peers and fans on digital platforms–most notably Twitter.
“With the support from family and friends, and the help of health professionals, I’m on the right track and I’m feeling better,” said deadmau5 in the post.
He also confirmed his upcoming performances at a sundry of upcoming European tour dates, but made it clear the update did not mean a return to the producer’s vice of choice (Twitter). With his label handling deadmau5 socials for now, here’s to hoping mau5 2.0 continues this bout of reflection and surfaces healthier than ever.

Gorillaz have definitely made their presence known over the last two years. Between Humanz in 2017 and The Now Now in 2018, the group is leading with the most music released. But, it could be as long as a decade before we hear new music from Gorillaz ever again. Recently, frontman Doman Albarn hinted that the

deadmau5 is going offline indefinitely, per a statement posted to Twitter.
He acknowledged his longtime struggle with mental health had taken a toll on him to fans, indicating issues had magnified over “the past several years” and a guilty feeling over not realizing his label’s vision. At the beginning and end of his note, deadmau5 offered an apology to those he’d offended in the past with unfiltered comments that he admitted were offensive. These two items are what ultimately led to his decision to “go off the radar and taking time necessary to work on myself.”
It’s unclear if by “going off the radar,” deadmau5 meant be taking a break from social media only, or his career/pursuits in general. He simply advised he’d be seeking professional help to aid him in his mission to become a better person. This departure follows up one where similar issues were cited in 2015.
All good things must come to an end…or at least take a break. Damon Albarn, frontman of beloved digital rock outfit Gorillaz, seems to think its time to put the band to bed for a while following back-to-back LP releases with 2017’s Humanz and 2018’s The Now Now. Recently, speaking to the Toronto Sun, Albarn explained that after two full-length studio albums, he and co-creator Jamie Hewlett plan to take a break from the road, to “even out” their recent output. An impending hiatus isn’t too surprising however, given that before Humanz, Albarn and Hewlett hadn’t linked for a full-length project since 2010’s Plastic Beach.
“Since there wasn’t much time between these recent two records it’s probably going to be another 10 years,” claims Albarn.
Recently, the Blur proponent also revealed that another side project, The Good, The Bad & The Queen are set to release new music, and that new materials from the Gorillaz could land sometime after that. Regardless of more new music from the “Humility” producers that may come in 2019, it seems after the group’s current tour ends on October 24 in Mexico City, Gorillaz may not surface again for another decade.
2018 will see many artists announce tours, but Zeds Dead will not be one of them.
The Canadian duo recently took to Facebook to notify fans that the year will bring a touring schedule significantly less rigorous than their 2017.
“This year we’ve decided to do things a bit differently than usual,” Zeds Dead writes. “We won’t be on the road as much, very little actually. We’re going to be focusing on creating new Zeds Dead music, growing our label Deadbeats, our radio show, working to make our live shows even better, and possibly stopping to smell the roses once in a while.”
The Northern Lights producers assure fans that the year will still yield “tons of new music” originating not only from the Zeds Dead brand, but from their Deadbeats imprint as well.
While the hiatus will temporarily remove the bass aficionados from the touring track, fans will have the ability to catch Zeds Dead at a number of summer festivals, including Okeechobee Music Festival.
