Deadmau5 brought us a hip-hop track titled “Are You Not Afraid" last year featuring some stelar verses by Shotty Horroh. Now he’s gone back at it and reworked this track to bring a more classic boom bap hip hop vibe. Bringing a more melodic version with menacing synths, classic kick drums & snares, a walking bassline, and turntable scratching, Deadmau5 shows his versatility on his “quick and dirty retake on a fav.”
deadmau5 – Are you not afraid blah
In the middle of the night deadmau5 surprisingly lets out a brand new entire track that sounds very finished, not his typical in progress clip. This song totals 7 minutes and 7 seconds in length being titled “BLOOD FOR THE BLOODGOAT” and is a powerful ballad powered by almost solely male vocals for the first 3 minutes which then quickly breaks into some epic signature deadmau5 synths. The song continues to build in typical mau5 fashion full of hefty drums and all. We can hear the entire track below thanks to him uploading it to Soundcloud, but no details on release or download yet. Listen below and enjoy!
Update: The mysterious singer on this track is confirmed artist Grabbitz who deadmau5 found on the internet.

After making headlines for a variety of reasons over the past few months, deadmau5 has just released some of the coolest news to date. The artist released an aerial photo via Twitter this morning announcing that he is set to build a 45,000 square foot mega studio. On top of this announcement, he also stated that he will be doing less club shows and more "epic stage shows".
He has said:
"where im putting EDM money. less club gigs, a few epic stage shows, a 45,000sqft studio complex for actual musicians."
It is very interesting to hear "for actual musicians", signifying that a big focus for the studio will be live elements, something that has always helped his production stand out.
This is also points to the potential expansion of his mau5trap label with a new roster of signed artists to have access to the studio upon completion. We're looking forward to what's to come!

deadmau5 is a Toronto native and has been known outside of his music for his popular "Coffee Run" video series where he takes guests in his car like Skrillex and Dillon Francis, Zedd or Pharrell. Well he brought this idea to the streets as he was an Uber driver for the evening in the downtown Toronto area. Here are his tweets announcing it and look below for the video recap of him actually picking up passengers that were lucky enough that evening. Who knows if he might do it again.
We waited patiently on more announcements about Deadmau5' upcoming "Entropy" tour in 2015, which was first announced via Twitter in early August and today we have further information via 2 mysterious Youtube videos Zimmerman tweeted just minutes ago. Hopefully the "Entropy" tour will include his 5 year multi-million dollar vision of the "360" arena show he was speaking of earlier in March. This is all we know for now but will keep you up to date as the news comes in. Enjoy
So a few days back Disney decided to file a lawsuit against Deadmau5 claiming that his mau5head mouse logo was too simliar to their Mickey Mouse logo and infringed on their rights. You can see the two images compared side to side above.
While there is obviously some similarities with the 3 circles, smile and minimalstic design, it seemed pretty insane. Also with the fact that he has registered for a trademark in 30 other countries already. Well since America is America, when he tried to apply to get it in the US, he in return is facing a potential lawsuit with Disney.
Well just an hour ago Deadmau5 unleashed onto Facebook that Disney has actually done the unthinkable, in the middle of this heated debate between the two, Disney has decided to use his popular song "Ghosts N Stuff" without permission in a new online Disney "Re-micks" video edited to some Mickey cartoons. Watch the video here. (Before it gets taken down)
Deadmau5 seems to be very confident about the situation.
Deadmau5 actually has filed a cease and decist for the unpermitted content. The mau5 has gone ahead and uploaded the actual document, see what his team has to say below.
