Uh-oh, poor Mau5.

Controversial but ultimately brilliant Deadmau5 recently collapsed at a show suffering from vomiting and exhaustion. Deadmau5 is currently on tour but the next 9 dates have been cancelled on doctors orders. We recently speculated that Mighty Mau5 has been suffering from a lack of creativity in 2010 with only 2 releases under his belt, compared to the dozens of 07, 08 and 09. But it seems clear that more than anything time is catching up with him after too much touring.
What this does seem to highlight is that there is a huge strain on the modern DJ and producer. Once you do hit the top, you are expected to perform on an almost daily basis. It’s not really viable for DJs to be performing night after night, especially with long journeys between gigs. We have to wonder whether Deadmau5 is an exception, and has just worked too hard, or if it’s a sign of things to come and that he will be the first but not the last DJ to suffer from too much.
Mau5, go on holiday, and have a speedy recovery.
