Deadmau5, Manchester Warehouse Project
Oct. 26, 2009

IF THERE WERE any mice crawling around the car park under Piccadilly Train Station last Friday, they would certainly have been caught in the trap of Warehouse Project’s latest evening of progressive house topped off by two and a half hours of one of the summer’s biggest success stories.

No doubt with the help of the huge success of I Remember earlier this year, Karl Zimmerman pulled in the most up-for-it crowd Warehouse has seen for a long time. The biggest cheers of the night were reserved for the Canadian DJ’s own tracks, notably from latest album, For Lack of a Better Name. With its infectious riff behind Rob Swire’s vocal, Ghosts’n’Stuff reinvigorated a crowd that was already on its tip-toes for a glance of Zimmerman’s ridiculously outsized headwear.

The massive mouse head that Deadmau5 insists on wearing, maybe solely for the reception he receives when he removes it, was just one of the masterful strokes of charisma the brushed their way through the star’s blistering set.

Rather than the ostentatious crowd pleasing prancing-about-in-front-of-his-own-four-foot-high-name antics of the likes of Erol Alken, Zimmerman kept it real thrilling his audience with nothing but a bit of cartoon headwear and an ability to play the right song at the right time—its simplicity winning over the hearts and minds of those packed into the damp and grimy underground car park that has made its name as one of Manchester’s most prestigious venues.
