Popular music producer and performer Joel Thomas Zimmerman, most popularly known as deadmau5, is set to join Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio station this Friday. The 35-year-old artist will have his own show, called “mau5trap presents,” debuting at 3PM PST on Friday, March 18.
Besides the announcement tweet via the Beats 1 account, no other specifics regarding the content of mau5trap presents were given. Still, considering the genre and work Zimmerman is known for, there will probably be a heavy focus on electronic dance music in the show. It’s also unclear whether or not Zimmerman will be given a recurring presence on Beats 1 or if mau5trap presents is a one-off performance.

Deadmau5 will join artists like Dr. Dre, Pharrell, Major Lazer, and Haim, who’ve all had shows on the Beats 1 station on Apple Music. In an interview recently, Beats 1 radio host Zane Lowe spoke on the artistic freedom that Apple allows of its Beats 1 creators, claiming that Apple Music doesn’t place any restrictions or rules on them or their specific shows, letting the hosts play whatever they want in their designated slot.
