Deadmau5 is enjoying quite an end to 2017. Not content with collaborating with fledgling R&B producers or raising money for children’s hospitals, the Canadian superstar is now adopting his Testpilot show for a special New Year show.
EDM superstar to turn his hand to techno at NYC event
Going down at Brooklyn nightclub Depot 52, the event will see the mau5 billed on the same line-up as Dennis Ferrer and Tensnake, two DJs he’s perhaps not as familiar with as his EDM peers.
Nonetheless, it should all make for a fascinating spectacle. After all, deadmau5’s ability to veer between genres is one of his undoubted skills, while he’s hardly been one to shirk a new challenge either. What’s more, the warehouse vibes of Depot 52 should prove a fertile stomping ground, with underground luminaries such as The Martinez Brothers, Solomun, Loco Dice and more having all played the Brooklyn venue of late.
Of course, this is far from the first time deadmau5 has played as Testpilot. Check out what happened when he played under his alias at this year’s Movement Festival in Detroit below.
