We reported last week that deadmau5 was planning a “secret” gig in London on Wednesday to promote the new Nokia Lumia 920 smartphone, and only 500 contest winners would be allowed in.
As it turns out, Nokia rigged up Flat Iron Square in Central London with a massive light system triggered by sounds from deadmau5′s set. In fact, every note played by the mau5 was mapped to a different subset of the over 200,000 (!!) lights in the square, bringing the music to life on a scale that’s never been attempted before.
The DJZ/10 is a collection of ten DJs that we think you should know about now. Some of them are already familiar to you, others you may have never heard of. The list is not based on (1) a secret computer algorithm, (2) social media popularity, or (3) payola. Every month or so we get together to decide if somebody from the broader A…Z directory is about to break out and should be included in the DJZ/10, or if somebody already on the list, for that matter, is “phoning it in” and deserved to be replaced by another DJ who is more worthy.×
