With two performances across Ultra Music Festival 2016, Deadmau5 was one of the dominating names.
Deadmau5 was one of the surprises when the Ultra Music Festival 2016 line up was revealed, especially when he was set to perform at the A State Of Trance stage, that was not expected at all but let’s just say he made a lot of headlines around that performance. What ended up as one performance turned out to be two as he was drafted in to cover the headlining performance at the live stage the next day.
When it comes to Deadmau5 you don’t know what way to take him. One minute he slags off Ultra, the next he is performing there, not once but twice! With the majority of it all just to grab the headlines, we take it with a bit of salt. That however does not take away the fact that when he performs on stage, he dominates the headlines for all the right reasons. At Ultra Music Festival 2016, he was set to play the A State Of Trance stage before Eric Prydz and he done so, though not without throwing down some heavy metal to kick off his set and finish off with ‘Ace Of Spades’ by Motorhead. Between these two tracks, he blasted out some Techno from Richie Hawtin, Stephan Bodzin and many other artists, and what a set it was.
The next day arrived and Ultra found themselves with no headliner for the live stage as The Prodigy pulled out due to health reasons, so who picked up the pieces, Deadmau5. This set was more around his own music with tracks such as ‘Avarita’, ‘Moar Ghosts N Stuff’, ‘Strobe’ and many more tracks also being performed. Across his two performances however, Deadmau5 did play a couple of tracks which have been unreleased, such as ‘Imaginary Friends’, ‘4ware 01’ and ‘Eborts‘.
For Deadmau5 fans, lets hope his new tour is set to arrive soon, as well as the tracks and album which have constantly been teased by the Canadian artist. Now you can sit back and check out both his sets, though they may end up being taken down (once the official links go live, we’ll update!).
