Watch Deadmau5's Techno Alias Testpilot Throw Down On Holy Ship! 11.0: Full Set

If you made it onto Holy Ship! this year, you were treated to some insane b2b sets and rare performances. The 11.0 sailing featured some of the hardest hitting bass-in-your-face artists that electronic music has to offer as well as a set by Deadmau5’s techno side project, Testpilot. Getting Deadmau5 to perform as Testpilot is no easy task. The only other Testpilot sets that have taken place were at Movement in Detroit last year, and most recently, a performance in NYC during New Year’s Eve weekend. 

Back in 2015, it seemed like Joel Zimmerman would have never set foot aboard Holy Ship!. In fact, even when he was onboard, it seemed like he may have regretted the decision altogether (or he could just be trolling). However, we can only thank Testpilot for showing up and throwing down one of the filthiest techno sets we’ve ever heard. 

If you weren’t able to make it onto Holy Ship this year to catch his set, you’re in luck. Thankfully, a Youtube user uploaded the performance in its entirety. Beware, Deadmau5 fans. Prepare to be caught off guard by the deep, dark, techno that is Testpilot.

Deadmau5 Shares Mysterious Information About A New Project Involving A Full Orchestra

It seems as if deadmau5 has something of epic proportion in store…

A couple of weeks ago, the iconic producer caused a fan frenzy showcasing a small excerpt of an orchestral rendition of his famed track “Strobe”

Now recently, Deadmau5 took to twitter to tease a new project, which he is claiming to be “seriously, the most epic thing I've ever done with my music. Sooon.” When replying to a curious fan, the only information Deadmau5 gave is that it involves “an actual 60 piece orchestra”.

This caused speculation within the mau5 community that he may be referring to the previously teased “Strobe” remake... However, Deadmau5 was quick to put out the fire, replying “It's not actually” to a questioning fan.

Who knows what the mau5 is up to… But one thing is certain, whatever it is, it’s going to be thoroughly impressive. Just like everything else he does. Enjoy?

Watch Deadmau5 Tease Epic Orchestra Rendition Of Classic Track "Strobe"

One of the most iconic songs in electronic music received an epic orchestral remake. During a recent Twitch stream, Deadmau5 treated us to a teaser of an orchestral version of his magnum opus, “Strobe.” When asked about a Deadmau5 feature film score, Joel Zimmerman responded by playing a sample of the new mix, raising speculation that it may be used as the score for a future film. 

The orchestral version of “Strobe” is performed by a live strings ensemble, which gives it an entirely new vibe. The strings swell and build in intensity as the song progresses, recreating the nostalgic melodies and harmonies from the original. Just as soon as the energy is brought to its peak, however, the track cuts off, leaving us wanting more. What Deadmau5 has planned for this remains a mystery as he tells us “Yep that’s all you get…I’m not explaining shit. You guys don’t pay me enough.” Stay tuned for more information, check out the video below, and enjoy!
