Deadmau5 Searches for the Electronic Cheese at Ultra Music Festival 2011

Mr. Mau5 is an electro idol.
Remember when Deadmau5 was just a break from the Carl Cox tent at Ultra Music Festival back in 2008? Those were the days. By 2009, he graduated to the live stage. And last year, the rodent rager scored the first-ever sold-out solo date at the Miami megafest. Now for 2011, Deadmau5 is back with his fiberglass mask, followed by a cult of candy ravers in search of the electronic cheese. And he'll take the main stage to close out the second day of Ultra, accompanied by that vivacious sea of vermin clad in L.E.D. Mau5heads, ears, tails, and gloves.

Mr. Mau5 will most likely grace his militia with staple claims to fame, "Ghosts 'n' Stuff" and "I Remember," along with a few new tracks like "A City In Florida" and recent single "Some Chords."

But is it his music or the gimmick that sells tickets? Well, he's still way too new to truly deserve this legendary status he's been so royally rewarded. But alas, what's more entertaining than a mass of Mau5-y bobbleheads sucking on pacifiers in drenched sports bras?



Whatever the reason, his uhhntz-ified stylings have captured the attention of millions, even earning him official DJ duties at last year's MTV Video Music Awards. But we must admit that we kind of miss those underground days. No one really likes a mainstream electro idol.

Deadmau5 as part of the Ultra Music Festival with a performance on Saturday, March 26. Bicentennial Park, 1075 Biscayne Blvd., Miami. Gates open at noon on Saturday. Tickets are sold out. Visit ultramusicfestival.com.
