Deadmau5 has made you a playlist of 54 tracks he’s into right now

Joel “Deadmau5” Zimmerman makes no secret of the music he doesn’t like, but the Canadian producer certainly has his favourites too. Now the mau5trap boss has put together a 54-track playlist on Spotify to familiarise fans with the tracks he’s loving right now.

Naturally, Zimmerman’s ‘For Lack of a Better Playlist’ includes a selection of mau5trap artists, with tracks from ATTLAS, Matt Lange and REZZ. We also get inclusions from the likes of Pig & Dan, Maceo Plex, KiNK, Eagles & Butterflies, Mark Reeve and Oliver Huntemann, proving once again how much the ‘mau5 loves his techno and tech-house. To keep things varied, his selections also include DJ Shadow, Noisia, Feed Me, Bonobo and Four Tet, before rounding it all out with the always-welcome DJ Koze remix of Moderat’s Bad Kingdom.

The playlist provides a neat companion to the recent mau5trap compilation We Are Friends, Vol. 5, which features music from label recruits Neus, Eekkoo, Matt Lange, No Mana, Rezz and more. In between his duties as a label head, Zimmerman remains active in his state-of-the-art studio, where he recently came up with an analogue synth remake of the Stranger Things opening theme, just because. Get into his Spotify playlist below.
