Deadmau5 Net Worth

Deadmau5 Net Worth $18 Million

With a nickname that suggests a dead mouse, Joel Thomas Zimmerman is probably one of Canada’s greatest exports when it comes to progressive house music production.  He developed his skill as a teenager after receiving a keyboard for Christmas. His father claims that he got the name after an incident in his early teens where he found a dead mouse in his computer while chatting with a friend. From then on, he became known as the “dead mouse guy’ among his friends.

His early career was characterized by a series of self-released compilations before opening his own record label, Mau5trap, in 2007. He was named the house DJ for the MTV Video Music Awards in 2010. He credits David Guetta and Lady Gaga for their role in bringing the dance genre into mainstream pop music thus paving the way for him and others.

His iconic logo “mau5head” has been on the cover of all his albums. He also wears a hilarious headdress, which resembles his logo during his performance. His fans also spot the headdress during his concerts. The five-time Grammy Award nominee has worked hard to get where he is today and unlike his moniker, he is still very much alive with a net worth of $18 million.
