Deadmau5 has been known in the past to keep it real and maintains a bond directly with his fans.
In a recent Reddit thread on r/deadmau5 where he constantly stays connected with his fans and answers questions, a topic that could have taken a controversial turn came to the forefront.
The discussion revolved around how No Mana has become a better music outlet than the actual deadmau5 himself, from the deadmu5 we have known in the past, most expected a defensive standoffish response, but what the producer revealed instead was extremely sincere and polite.
Explaining how the soundscapes of this industry are ever-changing and that he has willingly taken a backseat when it comes to production, he hinted at a hiatus or potentially retirement even saying, “These are just my musical sunset years, and I’m going to respectfully hand down the reigns and soon hang up the mau5head.”
The full statement read,
“Well I’ve obviously taken a more backseat on music production…. I’ve been doing it for 20+ years…. which is no small feat for anyone. I’m just following my own path. Music technology. Which isn’t limited to “the creation of music”. I’m getting older, the demographic is ever-changing. These are just my musical sunset years, and I’m going to respectfully hand down the reigns and soon hang up the mau5head. I don’t think there needs to be a negative connotation tied to the idea of me starting to slow things down and head into different ventures that fill the void that music no longer does for me.”
How soon or far into the future he plans on making this a reality still remains to be seen, but for now, the iconic mau5 continues to reign supreme.
