About Deadmau5

You may know Joel Thomas Zimmerman better as deadmau5, but did you know the mega-popular DJ is also a world-class gamer? That’s right, deadmau5 hosts one of the biggest accounts on Twitch, posting well over 200 streams in 2017 and growing to 315K+ followers on the streaming service by the end of the year. Somehow, the globe-trotting performer finds time to stream multiple times each week. In addition to showing off his gaming skills, deadmau5 lets his Twitch fans watch him work in his studio as he’s tinkering with the beats they’ll soon hear on the dance floor, also using the platform to promote and tease new releases. Whether it’s music or gameplay, deadmau5 is hard at work creating something fans are sure to enjoy.
