Deadmau5 continues his pattern of dropping “in progress” songs with the preview of “Satellite”. This track is insanely smooth and packs quite the punch of emotion with accompaniment of vocals from Deadmau5′s girlfriend, the famed tattoo artist, Kat Von D. The song has so many layers, both organic and electronic all coming together for a very impactful production. There is an abrupt transition at 1:18, which sounds like the Mau5 is taking a minimalistic trap inspired approach.. but I have a feeling the song is simply unfinished. As the Mau5 says “heres the intro + 1st verse for you. :)” Kat’s vocals with the production work so well. This is set to come out on Kat Von D’s upcoming debut album.

Deadmau5 continued his regular routine of putting out unreleased previews of his upcoming tracks as he experiments with them. First off we get a 2 minute tease of “moog bass + modular” which is a smooth melodic track reminding me a little of his anthem Strobe. Then next up we hear a change of pace with “Assume Control” which hits us with a dutch house styled ending that Deadmau5 refers to as “jacked afro crap”, which he claims was unintentional. These both keep us on our toes for new Mau5.
Also included is his set from the Weekend 2 of Ultra Music Festival down in Miami a few months back. He played a suprising set spanning from some classic hits to some techy underground cuts. All in all it’s a great balanced mix that should have Mau5 fans in a frenzy. Check out the full track-list below. Enjoy!

To end the day is the word class electronic concert they are known for at Michigan State University, where they have brought out electronic icon Kaskade and rising Canadian duo Project 46.

His Clockwork EP features two tracks both focusing on complex instrumental compositions which contain “syncopating sounds together like moving pieces in a clock, creating a single machine ticking through the pulse of music”. The title track, “Clockwork”, fusing electro and techno, opens up with an aggressive intro quickly moving into a drop filled with some raw basslines that will hit you square in the face. “Synthphony” takes us on a complex electro themed spacey journey carrying out some trance influcnce letting you get lost in the melodies.
