Biography

Joel Zimmerman doesn’t like being called a DJ. The 28-year-old dance music phenomenon from Toronto, better known as Deadmau5, rolls his eyes a the description, which he sees as a hopelessly outdated way of describing what he does. His sets are closer to live performances. He plays mostly his own material, assembling tracks on the fly, using cutting edge computer technology, including ... Read more in Amazon's Deadmau5 Store

Editorial Reviews

"4 x 4 = 12" is the debut artist album from dance music A-lister deadmau5, with 11 brand-new tracks. It's no exaggeration to say that he's the most exciting name in clubland right now, with a GRAMMY nomination, a JUNO award for Dance Recording of the Year for his CD collection "For Lack of a Better Name", a performance at the 2010 Winter Olympics and MTV booked him as the house act for their 2010 Video Music Awards. Over the last years he's released a string of club and radio friendly chart-toppers, and this album promises to produce an equal plethora of hits

4.0 out of 5 stars An old mau5 really can learn new tricks. February 10, 2011
By Josh B
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a fan of deadmau5's previous studio albums (Random Album Title and For Lack of a Better Name), I knew I wanted to buy this album, if only for the sake of having another one. The track "Some Chords", released as a single previously, was good enough that I had high hopes for the rest of the album. In the end, I have discovered that "4x4=12" represents a new style for deadmau5. Joel Zimmerman's experiments with collaborative tracks and alternate genres (dubstep) have turned out well, mixing up the sound while still maintaining the distinctive flavor that his fans know and love.

The album begins with "Some Chords", a track that any fan of "Ghosts N Stuff" will immediately enjoy. The balance is shifted, though, with "Sofi Needs a Ladder". This track, one of two in the album featuring fellow artist SOFI, sets itself apart with aggressive beats and angry female vocals. While not a typical deadmau5 track at all, it still has some potential, though I personally didn't enjoy it as much.

After this departure is finished, the album kicks back into the mau5's usual territory with the rowdy "A City in Florida". Deep, fast-paced beats and full bass create a wild ride, which blends into a more stacatto track, "Bad Selection". Next up is a collaborative track entitled "Animal Rights", one of my favorites from the album. With a sound reminiscent of Daft Punk, this one is full of win, with arpeggiated electronic noises and eccentric melodic bits.

The lighthearted mood shifts with the next track, "I said", another collaborative piece. The lights go out for this one, which has a creepy, visceral feeling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deadmau5's best album yet December 28, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I've been on the fence where Deadmau5 is concerned. His production style is simply amazing, but his song-writing is really, really formulaic--even more so than most progressive house. He has a style, but he just sticks to it a little too close for my happiness. However, this appears to have changed with 4x4=12, his best album to date.

Of particular note are the tracks with vocalist SOFI (no idea who she is, but she works well with the Deadmau5 style) and Greta Svabo Bech, on the surprisingly sensitive "Raise Your Weapon." Who would have guessed Deadmau5 would feature a song about the difficulties of a relationship, featuring delicate piano chords, and it would still work?

One of the interesting innovations to the Deadmau5 style is his foray into dubstep with "One Trick Pony." For a producer with such amazingly engineered bass, the move to dubstep is just perfect. I would love to see more of this from Deadmau5 on his next album. "Animal Rights" is another standout track with a great lo-fi synth melody and that phenomenal bass drum that he does so well.

If you're a seasoned fan, you should absolutely buy this. If you're skeptical of Deadmau5, this will clearly demonstrate that the guy has real song-writing talent. Finally, if you're new to Deadmau5, this is the one to start with. If you like anything resembling progressive house or tech house, you'll definitely enjoy this. It's just really good music!

4.0 out of 5 stars Math lesson: 4x4=12 in Base-14 number system. January 20, 2013
By R. Moss
Format:Audio CD
In our normal Base-10, decimal number system each digit is a power of 10.

4x4 = 16 = 1x10 + 6x1

In a Base-14, tetradecimal number system each digit is a power of 14.

4x4 = 12 = 1x14 + 2x1

The album title is only true if you are using a very awkward numbering system invented by someone with 7 fingers on each hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love It! May 16, 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
My first Deadmau5 record and I love it. It was recorded very well. I think new music is recorded digitally so getting an analogue copy is kind of backward right? It sounds great!

Deadmau5 has perfected the peaceful and trance like nature of electronic music. I would recommend this album to anyone that enjoys getting lost in their music or just looking to enjoy relaxing and neutral ambiance music.
