Mere days after Deadmau5 declared, "I won't be playing any more Miami clubs," he is considering the possibility of playing a Miami club.

However, unlike the Mau5 man's usual flip-flops (e.g. bitching about Ultra Music Festival 2012, then headlining UMF 2013), this latest 180-degree turnabout might not be so bad.

Why? Because it could lead to a free show.

Now if you've happened to miss all the controversy, here is a quick recap ...

On New Year's Day, Deadmau5 was booked for a gig at Mansion on South Beach. But dude didn't dig the vibe, and so he took to Instagram and Twitter to complain about "the entire front row glued to their fucking phones" as well as "fans in the back, trust fund kids up front" and "asshole promoter[s]... taking advantage of my brand/show to sell the fuck out of a show."

He concluded by pledging to personally boycott Miami clubs.

In response, we here at Crossfade suggested Mr. Mau5 either stop bitching or finally do something about the overhyped and overpriced state of the electronic dance music industry.

And now -- hot fucking cheese! -- it seems as though he might actually kinda-sorta scurry into action, thanks in part to an offer from Space Miami to "host a free show at our legendary venue."

AN OPEN LETTER FROM SPACE

Dear Joel,

We read with great interest about your recent show in Miami, and your concerns about fans being placed in the back of the venue while trust fund kids paid premium prices to be placed in front of the DJ booth...

We would like to extend an invitation for you to make these fans happy by hosting a free show for them at our legendary venue, Space. We will extend complimentary admission to all your fans and they will be able to enjoy your music on our huge dance floor without trust fund kids or anything else between you and them.

Space will cover your expenses up to $25,000 for your choice of private plane and five-star hotel so that you can come down and give your fans the opportunity to see you for free and experience you up close, the way you intended.

Please give your fans and Miami another opportunity to show you just how great this city is to perform in and how much we love having you here.

Sincerely,
Space
