Deadmau5 given a Beats1 radio show

The masked DJ will kick off his new show this Friday

Deadmau5 has become the latest in an all-star selection of musicians to be handed his own Beats1 radio show.

The masked DJ will curate a Friday night dance slot on a regular basis, kicking off this Friday, joining the likes of Charli XCX, Haim, Dr Dre, Elton John and Zane Lowe on Apple’s airwaves.

The show, titled ‘Mau5trap Presents’, will kick off at 10pm UK time on Friday, March 18. Billboard have suggested the new show might follow a similar format to Skrillex‘s current Beats1 show.


Deadmau5 recently apologised for being “a dick” and deleted his social media accounts, revealing a struggle with depression. He has since reactivated his accounts.

In a Tumblr post, the EDM producer wrote: “Like many other human beings, I’ve been dealing with some depression issues that I don’t need to go into detail with. I’d consider myself far from emotionally stable, though, not unstable enough to know support when i see it. Deactivating social media for a minute has nothing at all to do with popstars or dubstep tryhards. It was a kneejerk reaction to something i saw coming a long time ago. Also, nobody’s business but my own.”
