2015 has been a relatively quiet year for Deadmau5 as far as new music goes. However, when it comes to the Mau5 there is rarely a lack of conversations to be had concerning his antics and live shows. On top of launching his new "Mousetrap" inspired stage set up (like the board game) and touring the festival circuit efficiently appearing at events including Bonnoroo, Austin City Limits, and HARD DOTD, he's revealed that he’s set himself a target of completing a new album for the start of 2016.
Well with 2016 just around the corner we finally see a bit of light shed on some of what Joel has been working on as of late. Today he surprised fans in his usual fashion, casually uploading a 7:44 minute song "Imaginary Friends" to his "Fuckmylife" soundcloud page. "Imaginary Friends" has some classic Deadmau5 elements as sweeping synth automation and beautiful melodies rise and transform into a hard hitting electro drop. There is a good chance that this record could see a feature on Mau5's next album in a further refined form, perhaps along side other soundcloud uploads from 2015 like "BLOOD FOR THE BLOODGOAT" , as we saw with many 2014 soundcloud uploads appearing on his last album While (1<2). Listen to "Imaginary Friends" below and stay tuned for more news on the next Daeadmau5 album as 2016 approaches. Enjoy
Deadmau5 – Imaginary Friends
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.
