What better way to start the new year with deadmau5's nostalgic presence at Zouk Nightclub
Even as it readies for its first New Year’s Eve on the Las Vegas Strip, Resorts World’s Zouk Nightclub is firing up the 2022 hype train with the signing of electro house icon deadmau5 to its resident roster. The Juno Award winner and GRAMMY nominee will launch his residency – his first extended stay in Vegas since 2019 – on January 5, a date that aligns with the start of 2022’s Consumer Electronics Show at the nearby Las Vegas Convention Center.
That’s no coincidence, as Zouk Nightclub is heavily hyping the recreation of deadmau5’s famous “Cube” and its next-level audio-visual technology for the club’s stage. A staple of the artist’s live touring show, the cube is a massive tilting, rotating block structure with an exterior consisting of LED panels and a built-in DJ booth where deadmau5 performs – in-view or fully encased within the cube. During his shows, deadmau5 can control the visuals as the cube responds to his commands and performance.
A custom cube modeled after the most recent version, cubev3, will be built exclusively for deadmau5 at the 36,000-square-foot Zouk, and will complement the club’s massive LED-enhanced chandelier – dubbed The Mothership – that hovers over the dance floor.
deadmau5’s deal with Zouk Nightclub brings him back to Las Vegas for his first residency since a short-lived stint at KAOS, the megaclub that debuted and closed at the now-defunct Palms back in 2019. He’s also held residencies at Wynn’s XS Nightclub and was a member of Hakkasan’s roster in the early 2010’s.
He’s kept busy in 2021, dropping five new tracks, notably “Hypnocurrency” with fellow Niagara Falls DJ REZZ and “Hyperlandia” with Foster the People, while also headlining at Las Vegas’ Electric Daisy Carnival.
At Zouk, deadmau5 joins a group of established A-listers that includes Zedd, Tiësto, Cash Cash, and DJ Snake, as well as emerging artists such as Madison Beer and Becky G.
Tickets to deadmau5’s January 5 debut are on sale via zoukgrouplv.com and start at $30-$50 for General Admission, though high rollers can get a seat on the stage for a minimum $15,000 spend. It might be worth it just to see the cube in action.
