MasterClass has announced its newest feature, "Direct Line," which gives users the opportunity to engage in one-on-one conversations with their instructors, like legendary electronic music artist deadmau5.

There's no doubt that deadmau5 has shaped modern electronic music into what it is today. Timeless dance hits like "Strobe," "Sofi Needs a Latter," and "Ghosts 'n' Stuff" will always be ranked high in the charts amongst electronic music artists and fans.

At the height of the pandemic deadmau5 was very active on the group audio-only app Clubhouse, hosting rooms on various topics, such as his chicken farm in Canada. Fans tuned in to hear the mau5's intentionally random discussions with his friends and other industry professionals. He would bring up guests to ask him anything they wanted within a 60-second time frame, so he is no stranger to communicating directly with fans and people eager to learn.
