Deadmau5 Receives Award from Roseland Ballroom

It's a feat that hasn't been achieved since the summer of 1996 when Rage Against the Machine held the honor of playing five consecutive shows at Roseland Ballroom. Many never imagined that anyone would come close to performing as many times, let alone selling out their respective shows…that is, until deadmau5 rose to the top of the food chain in the electronic dance music scene. The world-renown producer/performer that supplies one of the most sought after and electrifying live acts in the world, was presented with a special award to launch his Meowington's Hax shows at New York City's legendary Roseland Ballroom.

The intimate event took place before the opening show Tuesday evening, where select members of the press were in attendance as deadmau5 received his awards, and cut into a massive cake by Carlo's Bakery, resembling his infamous mouse head. Although the doors were not to be open to the general public for several hours, the bright lights of Roseland were already shining, and a line of loyal fans had already begun to form outside of the famous NYC venue.

After the presentation, he took to the stage and provided a 20-minute performance, giving everyone a taste of what was to come. Although he didn't come close to pushing the limits of the sound during this time, seeing as the venue was pretty much empty, it was easy to imagine the space being packed in tight with sweaty, dancing bodies reveling in the sound of one of the most prolific DJ producers of our time.
