DJ Robots? Deadmau5 Made It Possible!

Forget raunchy girls swaying their hips on-stage to the DJ’s beat, Deadmau5 has created he’s own backup dancers…and they’re not even human!

According to inthemix.com.au the DJ assured his fans that he’ll bring something special to his set at Hakkasan and he fulfilled his promise…in the shape of two “12 feet and two tons of mechanical bliss”. During his 2 hour gig, the two mechanical “deadmaubots” swayed and moved in sync with their master’s beats. They also extended out on the dancefloor, eyes glaring at the dancers, taking their gig experience to a whole other level. While these two robots were dancing and stirring the crowd on each side of the DJ booth, Deadmau5 was right in the centre, making his magic whilst wearing a glowing helmet that matches the head of the robots.

Deadmau5 also has some festival gigs lined up including the the ‘Veld Music Festival’ in Toronto where he’ll be performing along with ‘Above & Beyond’, ‘Kaskade’, ‘Krewella’, ‘Laidback Luke’, ‘John Digweed’, ‘Jacques Lu Cont’ and many more in August– so his deadmau bots might make several guest appeareances down the festival line. Wonder if another DJ will follow suit and try to upsize the bots with another futuristic invention…a hover DJ booth anyone?
