Days away from the Grammy Awards where he's nominated in the 'Best Remixed Recording' (non-classical) category for his remix of Morgan Page's "The Longest Road" (Nettwerk), DEADMAU5 has landed two nominations from Canada's Juno Awards. The highly popular electronic music producer and performer has also announced dates for his North American spring tour with Late of the Pier and The Whip.

The Juno Award nominations land him in the "Dance Recording Of The Year" category for his ULTRA EMI single "Move For Me" (Deadmau5 vs. Kaskade) and 2008 debut album release, Random Album Title.  This marks his third and fourth nominations for this award.  Last year, DEADMAU5 was also nominated in the same category for the Play Records tracks "After Hours" (Melleefresh vs. Deadmau5) and "All U Ever Want" (Billy Newton-Davis vs. Deadmau5), with the latter garnering the prize.

Following his massive 'World Tour' in 2008 which took him around the globe, DEADMAU5 will return to North America for several high-profile appearances including SXSW and performance spots on each day of the Ultra Music Festival in Miami March 27 and 28.  He'll also team up with fellow live electronic acts Late of the Pier and The Whip for several key East Coast dates which include stops in Nashville, New York, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Boston, Toronto, Chicago and Montreal.  The tour will support his new EP of which details will be announced at a later date.

DEADMAU5 began his meteoric rise by turning out original productions and instant hits, gaining notoriety at digital DJ portal, Beatport. Tracks like "Faxing Berlin" and "Not Exactly" showcased his distinctly innovative sound, which appealed across the plethora of dance genres.  He continues to deliver quality tunes such as "Brazil," "Arguru," "Sometimes Things Get, Whatever," all of which were released on Random Album Title.  Wrote Jim Fusilli of the Wall Street Journal (12/26/08) in his 'Best Of' roundup of 2008  "Deadmau5 is a producer renowned for making electronic dance music, but his Random Album Title (Ultra) reveals the depth of his vision. It's an 80-minute suite that surprises and delights as it blends trance, disco, New Age, Europop and Tangerine Dream-like soundscapes. As if rejecting the notion that his music is only for raves, he lets the tempo sag by adding tender interludes, shifts the mood while keeping up the beat, and alters accent notes on percussion and keyboards so wickedly that you have to stop and listen. Surrender to his wit and surprising musicality and you're transported."
