Deadmau5 Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Joel Thomas Zimmerman, to the audiences known by the stage name of Deadmau5, is a famous Canadian disc jockey, musician, as well as a record producer, who mostly focuses on genre of the progressive-house music. Even though Zimmerman debuted in the music industry in 2005 with the release of “Get Scraped” studio album, it wasn’t until he founded his own record label under the name of “Mau5trap” that he became a recognized name.

When he established his record label, Zimmerman went on to release his third studio album called “Random Album Title”, which became Deadmau5’s breakthrough work. A mixture of progressive house, electro house, trance and techno music styles, “Random Album Title” managed to spawn seven singles, including “I Remember”, which topped the UK and US music charts, “Not Exactly”, “Alone With You” and “Faxing Berlin”. Around the same time, Zimmerman began working on collaborations with other artists, most notably with Kaskade, with whom he released a largely popular song entitled “Move for Me”. The single proved to be a huge success, as it peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Airplay chart and was later featured in a rhythm video game “DJ Hero 2”. However, this video game is not the only one to feature Zimmerman’s music. His tracks appear on such popular games as “The Sims 3”, “Sound Shapes”, “Saints Row: The Third”, “Grand Theft Auto IV”, “Need For Speed: Most Wanted”, as well as others.
