Mayor Carolyn Goodman has passed a proclamation officially declaring January 2, 2012, “deadmau5 Day” in the City of Las Vegas. This marks the date the electronic music phenomenon will launch his exclusive partnership with Wynn Las Vegas, debuting at XS Nightclub during New Year’s Eve weekend and continuing with additional dates at both Encore Beach Club and XS through2012.
“Throughout the past year we have seen the masses journey to Las Vegas to experience electronic dance artists headlining in our nightclubs,” said Jesse Waits, co-owner and managing partner ofXS and Tryst nightclubs. “The following for deadmau5 is phenomenal, and I applaud Mayor Goodman for recognizing both his remarkable persona alongside his ability to drive visitor traffic from fans traveling across the globe to experience his live sets.”
“Las Vegas is the entertainment capital of the world and deadmau5 represents the cream of the crop in electronic dance music, the hottest genre of music that has made an significant positive financial impact to the city this past year,” said Sean Christie, co-owner and managing partner of Encore Beach Club and Surrender Nightclub. “Mayor Goodman’s proclamation of ‘deadmau5 Day’ is an important symbolic acknowledgement of this wildly popular entertainment form that has come to define the best in Las Vegas nightlife.”
The honor is a great addition to deadmau5’s list of accolades including recently being nominated for three Grammy Awards. He is up for nods in the Best Dance/Electronica Album category for his critically acclaimed LP 4×4=12 and Best Dance Recording for “Raise Your Weapon” with Greta Svabo Bech. Also nominated was deadmau5’s stellar remix of the Foo Fighters’ “Rope” in the Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical category.
In 2009, deadmau5 was nominated for Best Remixed Recording at the Grammys and took home the Best Electro House Artist and Best Progressive House Artist at the Beatport Awards while being noted as the “most influential, relevant and forward-thinking person in electronic music over the past 12 months.” His most infamous award show appearance to date was rocking the stage at the2010 MTV Video Music Awards as the official house artist as he introduced his signature sound to TV viewers tuning in across the globe.
