In the last half-decade, Joel Zimmerman (a.k.a. Deadmau5) has become one of the most bankable and outspoken artists on the EDM scene. 5 Years of Mau5 acts as a portable Deadmau5, collecting the Toronto producer's best tracks, as well as remixes from artists in the orbit of his mau5trap label. To hear what makes Zimmerman the elite sonic engineer that he is, dig the rich harmonics that comprise "Some Chords," the corrosive dubstep break in "Raise Your Weapon," or the interlocking arpeggios of "Strobe." Among the remixers, Nero make "Ghosts 'n' Stuff" sound like it stuck a fork in an electrical socket, and Shiba San renders "I Remember" as pulsing U.K. garage.
