B.S.O.D. is a North American electronic duo consisting of Steve Duda and Deadmau5 (aka Joel Zimmerman). The band was formed in 2005, before the duo had ever met in person. Steve was already a well-established programmer/engineer in Los Angeles, and had worked for many well-respected artists such as Nine Inch Nails, Rob Zombie, A Perfect Circle and Tommy Lee, among others. Deadmau5 had also earned a reputation in the Toronto area as a producer and sound-designer, with self-produced electronic music featured in both film and radio.
B.S.O.D. crafted an entire album and remixed Hurt by Christina Aguilera, but the money ran out and Duda had to return to L.A. “We may do some more B.S.O.D. stuff in the future,” says Zimmerman. “And we’re still working on software together.”
