Electronic music superstar Deadmau5 has signed on with XS Nightclub and Encore Beach Club for an exclusive yearlong Las Vegas residency at the clubs beginning on January 2, 2012. "I love that Vegas is really embracing electronic music as their staple entertainment," says Deadmau5, who played several shows at the Wynn Las Vegas resort venues last year. "All of the Sinatras and Rat Packs are now DJs. I've heard Vegas is going to be the next Ibiza, but it's its own thing. Here it's all about flash and show and lights." In this trailer for the residency, Deadmau5 tries out a few new career ideas before deciding to stick with his gig as a dance-music icon.
