(TORONTO – 12 May, 2014) - Globally acclaimed electronic music producer and musician deadmau5 for some time has been openly discussing that his next major release--the one he feels to truly be his first proper body of work--is completed.  Today, fans everywhere can rejoice as the release date for the new album is set for June 17 (digitally) and June 24 (physically and streaming) on mau5trap / Astralwerks Records / Universal Music Canada.  Titled while(1<2), it will consist of 25 tracks to be issued as his first ever double-disc set. For while(1<2), the studio maverick burrowed in his Toronto-based operations and meticulously reedited, polished and pieced all the music together for the largest album he’s ever done.  deadmau5 loyalists will be familiar with some the music as selection of it had been featured over the last three years on his Soundcloud page in one unedited/work in progress form or another. Along with release date details, deadmau5 has made available a clip of the album’s opening number “Avaritia”.  Listen to it now here: live.deadmau5.com.  The instrumental track will make its full radio play on Pete Tong’s UK BBC Radio 1 this Friday, May 16.  The complete track listing for while(1<2) will be revealed soon Said deadmau5, “It’s a good mix of sh*t I want to do versus sh*t people want to hear or what they would expect. It’s a good balance. It’s not like, ‘Oh, it’s such a departure. He’s doing smooth jazz”.  “It was when I was working on some live stuff, setlists for shows and stuff like that, and it just must have been a couple of tracks that sounded pretty good stitched together end to start and I thought, “Well, if I ever do an album or compile this into some kind of album this has got to be that part of the order for that.” And I just kind of took everything and played musical Tetris with it.” Keep up to date on everything happening with deadmau5 and while(1<2) via his online service, live.deadmau5.com, a digital destination he personally architected for fans to get direct access to premium content and intimate experiences. For those on the go, the live.deadmau5 app will be made available for IOS May 15.  ABOUT deadmau5 Joel Zimmerman, more commonly known as deadmau5 (pronounced ‘dead mouse’), is one of the world’s most respected electronic music producers of modern times.
