Deadmau5 Takes A Break From Social Media

Deadmau5 is undoubtedly one of the most newsworthy stars in dance music. Whether he's calling out Paris Hilton, fighting the good fight against Disney, buying a massive new home, or driving around in a Nyancat-wrapped Ferrari, dance music fans are seemingly compelled by almost everything deadmau5 does. 

With his upcoming move to his recently purchased house, deadmau5 has more important things on his mind than making snarky comments on social media. In fact, he took to Tumblr to reveal that he'll be taking a short sabbatical from the internet. This might be a disappointment for his fans and the news outlets that hang on his every word, but it should be a great move for his career. Getting away from the internet will allow him to focus on music instead of drama.

Read the full Tumblr post below.

"This is it for a weeeee little while. Bags packed, and headed to LA to take care of some business, and get out to the HARD day of the deadstuffs!

After i leave tomorrow, they start boxing up my apartment…. which has served me very well over the years. But it’s time to try something a little different, and i think moving out to the middle of nowhere is going to gimme some new perspective and inspiration to get back to work on some more crazy things for 2015 :D 

So, thank you to all the fans and supporters who have helped me achieve this little transition, and with any luck im sure i’ll find a little more solitude and peace out there as opposed to being couped up in this apartment life.

The internet / servers and all that stuff is being shut down and packed up tomorrow, and following that, i think im gunna cool off twitter, leave the paris-ites and everything else alone just for while and screw my head back on so i can get focused on the things to come…. we got some work to do, studios to build, music to get out.

i’ll keep you guys posted once im back online and settled in :D"

Deadmau5 signed off from Twitter with the following tweet.

The quote comes from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The dolphins in the novel were trying to alert humans to the fact that the world was going to end, and their last message to humans was "So long, and thanks for all the fish." The phrase has become a way for science fiction fans to say "Goodbye" to each other. The quote was explained in the film adaptation of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which we've included below.

So long, and thanks for all the fish!
