Announcing the event on Facebook, deadmau5 commented, “okay, here’s my big announcement thing… http://www.mau5hax.com/ boom. So in the spirit of staying away from the “same old shit” in Miami round WMC time, I’m taking a break from being on a fuckin stage and getting in the studio with you guys. So! A tent full of producing tools, computers and rad people. Lets just get together and share ideas and learn shit! And of course I’ll be walking around in the mau5hax tent A LOT to check out all your work, play around with you guys, and hopefully we can learn from each other. Far more rewarding to me and you than being paid stupid money to stand on a fuckin stage for an hour. Right?” Minutes later, he continued with: “shit, if mau5hax goes down well in Miami… fuckit, I’ll HAPPILY take it on the road and make a tour outta it. Could be rad! I’ll talk with management n shit for sure.”
Whilst in Miami, mau5trap will also be hosting two special label showcases on the 24th and 25th of March at Fontainebleau Poolside and Amnesia respectively.
