Although deadmau5 is almost as well known for being an online troll as he is for being a producer, occasionally the mau5 shares something a little sentimental.

Recently, deadmau5 shared on Twitter a private conversation between himself and one of his young protégés, French wünderkind Madeon. Now just 21 years old, Madeon first began snatching headlines in 2011 for his remix of deadmau5's "Raise Your Weapon". Deadamu5 approved the remix, launching the then 16-year-old Madeon into musical superstardom.

In a candidly drunk text, Madeon sends deadamau5 his sincere appreciation for being a mentor and helping him to start his career.

Rezz, another young producer signed to deadmau5's Mau5trap label also joined in the love fest:

It's a nice change of pace to see such gratitude from young producers to their mentor!
