Deadmau5 (music reco)

The Canadian 2009 Juno Award winner for best electronic/house group was Deadmau5 (pronounced "deadmouse"), and I just have to give them a shout-out here because they've provided some very funky, bassy soundtracks to my workouts lately and I've been totally loving it. It's very techno, but heavy on the bass and several tracks have some really straight-ahead, fatback funk drums which I really love.

I have a litmus test for a good funky groove now -- if my 3-year-old son Max will dance to it, it's good. If he doesn't like it, it's usually lacking something, or overly electronic in tone. He has a good ear for the true funk.

Track 2 on their online player, "Moar Ghosts 'N' Stuff," has a particularly nice beat once all the instruments come in. The next track, track 3, "Ghosts 'N' Stuff," has a ridiculously squishy bassline that I looooove...
