It’s no secret that we at the Flickcast are looking forward to the musical onslaught of new mixes being brought to the XBox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii with the upcoming DJ Hero 2. One of the biggest announcements to the DJing world for the game is the inclusion of deadmau5 (pronounced “dead mouse” in case you were wondering).
While his name isn’t what one would consider household yet, you may have heard the work of the Canadian house DJ without even knowing it. deadmau5 was one of the guests at Activision’s star studded pre-E3 party to help promote DJ Hero 2. Also, in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the Nintendo DS, PSP and iPhone, there was a radio station dedicated to the giant red headed deceased rodent.
An award winning DJ, deadmau5 will be a selectable avatar in DJ Hero 2. In addition, his track “Ghosts ‘N’ Stuff” which won the International Dance Music Award for 2010’s Best Electro Track will be mixed with Lady Gaga’s just dance. Take a peek after the jump at a :30 clip of the song.
Make sure to also take a look at some of the screens of deadmau5 in action as well. See it all after the break.
