Listen To One Of Deadmau5's Most Iconic, Career-Making Performances

2009 was a foundational year in the modern EDM movement, due in no small part to deadmau5's pivotal For Lack Of A Better Name album, which featured classics like "Strobe" and "Ghosts 'n' Stuff" with Rob Swire, helping to bring progressive-house to a wider audience and cementing the insurgence of dance music into the mainstream.

BBC has taken us back to that year, giving us a replay of deadmau5's famous Essential Mix live from Radio 1 in Ibiza. The mix features a number of classic mau5 tracks, such as "Ghosts 'n' Stuff," "FML" and his collaboration with fellow progressive-house producer Kaskade on "I Remember." The mix also features Zimmerman's own remix of Daft Punk's classic "Harder Better Faster Stronger" and Muse's "Knights of Cydonia."
