Once again, we bring you your weekly installment of Japanese site AsQme‘s video interviews with some of dance music’s most sought after contributors. Today, Deadmau5 gets back in front of the camera to discuss his new studio and upcoming releases, the story of his famous Mau5head design, and his favorite bands to listen to. As the weeks continue, you can certainly look forward to more artists making a special vlog appearance, answering translated questions from their ever-expanding Japanese fan base. Check out Deadmau5’s responses below:

I know Skrillex has some releases on mau5trap, but when you first heard his songs what kind of impression did you have? Also, the other day you criticised Jack Ü’s ‘Where Are Ü Now’, don’t you like the way Skrillex makes music lately or do you disagree with the stylistic changes in Skrillex’s music?

Out of all the tracks you produced, which one is your favorite?

Tell me how you came up with the idea for your mouse helmet?

How do you come up with your lyrics? A lot of your songs are sorrowful, I wouldn’t have expected it – I like it.

You have another alias called f*ckmylife. Will you officially release “aassddff” and “beneath with me” in the near future? Naturally, the production sounds great.

What was going through your mind when you produced Strobe?
