About mau5trap and Seven20

Over a decade since its formation, mau5trap — the independent record label founded by groundbreaking electronic music producer deadmau5 — has become a bastion for trailblazing and genre-defying artists. Casting a palpable influence over the genre, Mixmag readers voted mau5trap among the “Top 50 Labels of the Decade”, placing it in the Top 10; since then, the imprint has been supported by dance music magnates Billboard, DJ Mag, Forbes, Insomniac, and The EDM Network. The multi-genre platform has extensively served as an authoritative platform for dance music heavyweights such as Skrillex, Feed Me, Zedd, Noisia, Dillon Francis, Chris Lake, and Madeon; a combination of dark, forceful techno and complex, electro sounds, the label acts as a hotbed for rising talent such as REZZ, Getter, i_o, ATTLAS, No Mana, Matt Lange, and others alike. Hau5trap and 720mau5 are extensions of the original label.  Welcome to the horde.
