After nearly a year without a proper creative space in which to produce, Deadmau5, born Joel Zimmerman, has shared a virtual tour of his new studio via a series of excited posts on Instagram and Twitter. Even before finishing the new space's wiring, the electronic producer started teasing new tech-house tracks that he's presumably been working on for a new album rumored to drop sometime this year.

Earlier this week the EDM producer shared some photos of the space before an all night equipment moving marathon.

Shortly thereafter, while setting up the studio's wiring, he took to social media to declare the new space "officially the best room [he's] ever sat in."

Before completing the space's set-up the producer started laying down some distinctively Deadmau5 sounds and sharing them on social media, Magnetic Mag reports. First he "took a small sequence break" and posted a synthy progressive house melody on Twitter:


The producer followed-up a few hours later with some more cohesive sound clips. It seems like he's embracing the "Entropy" title for the project, at least temporarily, despite facing legal backlash when he tried to use the name for a tour a few years back.

In case you were wondering why 2015 was a relatively quiet year in terms of production for the artist behind the large LED mouse head, it's partly because this studio space had been under construction ever since he moved into his new multi-million dollar Ontario mansion over a year ago, Your EDM reports. It seems like the project took longer than planned, and if you know Deadmau5 then you know how difficult it would be for him to make a new album in just any old studio space.

Over the summer the producer had shared virtual blueprints for the space in response to fans' Tweets demanding new material. Apparently the studio was supposed to be finished in October but the producer wasn't holding his breath for construction to be complete until at least November.

Now, minus a few finishing touches, the producer's new Mau5 hole is finally up-and-running. As Deadmau5' wait for his dream studio space comes to an end, fans can only hope that tons of new material is on its way.
