Despite Deadmau5 being one of the most controversial artists in the electronic music scene today, many people forget that Deadmau5 does have a soft side of him.
Last year Deadmau5 met up with an 8 year old fan named Darius who had been drawing pictures of Deadmau5 every day. Deadmau5 wrote “have a great day at school buddy! Can't wait to see your next mau5terpiece!”
Now it seems that Deadmau5 has continued with his little acts of kindness as he donated some much needed equipment to a fan who was brutally attacked and robbed.
Long story short, Zac Campbell had a pretty shitty night recently… Ill spare you the details, but he was DJing in a small club for a DJ competition, and after he left his gig, gear in hand… he was attacked with a knife, stabbed 3 times, bitten, and beat the fuck up. All because some asshole wanted his DJ Gear. Hospitalized…. but he is on the mend now, and is recovering well.
he’s been a fan, member of the horde for quite some time… and we look after our own, so… after eyeballing the gear you had, we’ve decided to get you some upgrades to help you back on your feet….
sending out a shipment for you today! New 13” macboook with some goodies that will get you back on the decks, and producing some music…. (got wind from a friend of yours, thanks heather, that you wanted to get into production)
Native Instruments Komplete 10
so expect a care package headed your way Zac, and feel better man! The hordes got your back..
Zac seems to be doing better as it looks to be healing.
