First of all, Happy New Year to all my blogger friends, frequent visitors, and lurkers alike. Hope all of you have a more fruitful and prosperous year ahead.
I'm kicking off the year with an excellent megamix from Deadmau5, which I did a few weeks back. He is currently my fave in the minimal/progressive house scene and I know will make it big this year.
I first heard and saw his video posted on YouTube mixing some original stuff using the Xone 3D MIDI mixer and Ableton Live software and that really blew my head off! He was really amazing. Here's the clip of that vid... DeadMau5 vs. Xone 3D .
Noticeable is the absence of the basic turntable/mixer combo on his setup, as he demonstrates the future of DJ'ing and with the growing number of Superstar DJs like Paul Van Dyk, Sasha, Kevin Saunderson, Ritchie Hawtin ditching the basic vinyl/turntable set-up and shifting to digital format with the use of MIDI controllers and DJ software, there is a bright future that lies ahead for bedroom digital DJs making it big.
As quoted from Adam from his Outrageous House Music blog, "... that if there was the Oscars for dance music, this guy would certainly win as Best Newcomer."
