Today, January 5th, is Joel Zimmerman’s a.k.a. deadmau5′ 36th birthday. The mau5trap head-honcho has had an incredible past year. In 2016, Joel went from releasing mau5trap’s compilation album we are friends, volume. 5 to his much anticipated “Strobe” Remix Pack and finally releasing his latest album W:/2016ALBUM/, one of my personal favourites.

In honor of the mau5trap don’s 36 birthday, we’ve compiled a list of the 10 best remixes to some of deadmau5’s most notable tracks with everyone from Dillon Francis, Nero, Madeon to Sub Focus and many more. Listen to the playlist below!

Mau5trap also shared a video of fans wishing him a happy birthday, otherwise known as the ‘horde.’ It’s touching in all the right ways – check it out below:
