Deadmau5 provides full TESTPILOT set for June BBC Radio 1 Residency

Though Joel Zimmerman’s highly-anticipated TESTPILOT set at Movement was cut criminally short due to technical issues stemming from the rain, the truncated performance which he was able to provide under his techno alter-ego showed a great deal of promise. To make up for the inevitable setbacks of the show, deadmau5 announced his attention earlier in the week to re-record the mix and broadcast it on his BBC Radio 1 Residency program. Yesterday, June 1, Zimmerman delivered on this promise, dedicating the first hour and a half of the serial mix to the setlist he’d planned for his official TESTPILOT solo debut.

The TESTPILOT mix draws from the breadth of some of techno’s biggest influencers, including Maceo Plex, Pig&Dan, Phil Kieran, and Julian Jeweill. Zimmerman also ensures to keep his finger on the pulse of the techno’s brightest rising stars, drawing from the likes of Raxon and highlighting three songs from Rrose. In its full form, TESTPILOT’s set proves that Zimmerman is, indeed, able to proffer a set as his techno alias that rivals the quality of his sets as deadmau5. Hopefully, there will be more chances to catch the side-project onstage in the near future.

For the final 25 minutes of the broadcast, the artist donned his deadmau5 persona to highlight recent mau5trap hits, including REZZ’s remix of No Mana and Zashanell’s “Clear” and Feed Me, Kill The Noise, and Anjulie’s “Crazy Maybe.” Zimmerman concludes the broadcast with cuts from Lane 8 and a remix of Edu Imbernon and Duologue from Undercatt.
