Our favorite Canadian rodent, deadmau5, decided to deactivate his Twitter account yesterday. Although we hope this decision is only temporary, perhaps he needed a more permanent break from social media to focus on what matters most: his music.
UPDATE: deadmau5 posted a little more detail surrounding his decision to leave Twitter to his team this morning via his Tumblr:
I’m no longer going to be managing my own twitter account for “deadmau5”. I’m going to let management deal with that account. My reasons are my own, not because of something i said, not because of this hilarious I.R.A. vs “ira” craic, not because of lady gaga’s infinite legions of brain dead fans. but as i said… reasons of my own.
Perhaps ill return to that in world as some reincarnation of sort, but for now, that’s off the table for me. I’ll continue to upload new music to my soundcloud, and the twitter account will point you in the right direction for the most recent happenings… but enough’s enough with living on twitter. Time to at least start by living in the studio making music without having to be force-fed stupid shit that annoys me, when all i’m trying to do is connect with fans.
as for the fans, thanks for all your continued support and understanding of my decision to personally unplug myself from the very thing that’s making me upset. As i’ve mentioned, the account will remain alive, and *my team* (yeah i went there) will keep you just as updated on the ongoings with new music and shit that actually matters.
To leave you with some good news, my new Tricaster arrives today. SO perhaps ill be streaming video with direct audio a lot more often.
thanks for having my back on this one.
Thankfully, we did not have to wait long to hear new productions; last night, he published seven tracks to SoundCloud. Translated from Latin, each of the tracks are named after one of Christianity’s seven deadly sins. If you choose to join deadmau5 on this dark path, sit back and immerse yourself in these 19 haunting minutes of Hell.
