Deadmau5 Scores New Netflix Film ‘Polar’

deadmau5 has announced that he’s joining electronic dance music artists like Giorgio Moroder, BT and Junkie XL and making the leap into film scoring.

deadmau5 (Joel Zimmerman) composed the score for the upcoming Netflix film, Polar, starring Mads Mikkelsen.

The film, based on the Dark Horse graphic of the same name, tells the story of an assassin that wants to leave the business, but the business won’t leave him.

“deadmau5 is an unstoppable force,” says director Jonas Åkerlun. “Taking him out of his comfort zone to compose a film, he brought power and excellence to the score without losing that deadmau5 DNA we love so much.”

The film and score will be released on Friday, January 25.

    1. Mikkelson is actually younger than Keanu Reeves!

      This does look like it follows the same formula as John Wick, but it also looks pretty fun, so I’ll be watching.

  1. His stuff he did in LA with the full orchestra, I think it was called “where’s the drop?”, was actually very good. Should make for a fun listen.
