Deadmau5 released his first original track in over two years back in late May and now returns with another record titled "Saved". The latter will be part of mau5trap's forthcoming WAF005 compilation, which also includes works by Attlas, Black Gummy and Eekkoo.
"Saved" is a dynamic nine-minute production that brilliantly builds before bursting with purposeful waves of energy. Similar to the "Strobe", the new release radiates with uplifting melodies and ethereal pads that create an emotional ride for anyone who listens. Stream "Saved" below and enjoy!
Kaskade and deadmau5, two of the biggest names in dance music, just surprised the world with an explosive new collaboration. The two once collaborated years back on the smooth, timeless dance anthem "I Remember."
This new song "Beneath With Me" featuring vocals from Skylar Grey starts out as a melodic collaboration full of beautiful synths and keys. Then out of nowhere, the song drops into an energetic, hard-hitting tune that's sure to wake listeners up.
Given the fact that the song is listed as "V3", it's safe to say that the song isn't even finished. Hopefully the two will release an updated, official version of the song soon.
Listen below to the huge collaboration and we will keep you updated as more info comes through. While you're at it, relive the good old days and check out Kaskade and deadmau5's first collab from back in '08 "I Remember." Enjoy!
Kaskade & deadmau5 - Beneath With Me Ft. Skylar Grey
The randomness of this song dropping has now preceded to become even stranger. In classic deadmau5 fashion Joel has taken to twitter to explain his feeling about the release, see what he said below:
At first deadmau5 seemed surprised by the release in general.
Then he contiued on to say:
Finally coming to a conclusion with:
It's pretty clear that deadmau5 was not fully in the loop when it came to this release. This raises the question; can we expect another version of this song to come out in the future?
Fresh off his massive set at Ultra Music Festival, veteran electronic DJ and producer Deadmau5 has dropped off the first ever episode of his very own Beats 1 Radio show called Mau5trap Presents. The ever talented, always blatant producer has never been one to hide his true colors and his new show is no different. Hilariously opening the show by stating, "For anyone who doesn't know me I'm a famous DJ" he goes onto also confessing that the show will be dropping several world exclusives as well as some tunes from the Mau5trap label in the coming weeks.
The first hour of the mix kicks off with an hour long collection showing off some of Joel's favorite songs and continues to dive into an hour long set littered with Mau5trap releases and along with some of his own tracks. As the show gets into its groove, Deadmau5 sticks mostly to the music in this whopping 2 hour long episode showing love to artists like Aphex Twin, Jeremy Olander, Holden, and Tycho. We can't wait to hear what the Canadian mastermind has in store for us next, but for now tune into the first ever installment of Mau5trap Presents. Check out the tracklist after the jump!
