Deadmau5 Biography: Life and Career of the Electro-House Producer Born Joel Thomas Zimmerman on January 5th, 1981 in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, Deadmau5 earned his unique moniker as the result of finding a dead rodent inside his computer. That image has since become larger than life, as the iconic Mau5head he wears as he performs his electro-house music on-stage. Deadmau5 has come a long way since his humble beginnings using videogame systems to make chiptune music, and today he is one of the most awarded and sought-after acts on the scene. His album, 4x4=12, was a breakout mainstream success and gave him the credibility to keep pursuing his dream. In this video, WatchMojo.com takes a look at the life and career of Deadmau5.
