Las Vegas mayor Carolyn Goodman has officially proclaimed January 2, 2012 ‘Deadmau5 Day’.
The Canadian electro producer tweeted a photo of the official Proclamation from the mayor’s office.
It asks “all citizens to acknowledge that Deadmau5 has taken electronic music to the next level, and his sets are always unique as he assembles tracks on the fly, using cutting edge computer technology, including software he’s helped write himself.”
January 2 is, conveniently, the date that he kicks off his yearlong residency at the Wynn Las Vegas hotel clubs XS and Encore.
When the residency was first announced, Deadmau5 said, “I love that Vegas is really embracing electronic music as their staple entertainment. All of the Sinatras and Rat Packs are now DJs. I’ve heard Vegas is going to be the next Ibiza, but it’s its own thing. Here it’s all about flash and show and lights.”
