There's been a ton of buzz surrounding Malaa's Illegal Mixtape over the past couple weeks and we now have the pleasure of premiering the 12-track body of work featuring brand new music by Malaa and several other talented house / techno producers.

The much anticipated project comes via Tchami's Confession label and includes two of Malaa's previously-released tracks, "Contagious" and "Bylina". You'll hear his new collaboration with rising Phoenix-based producer Gerry Gonza called "React" which showcases dark, spacey synths and unique percussion throughout. Malaa also taps house up-and-comers like Jace Mek, Ghostea, Dillon Nathaniel and more for the mixtape.

Best yet, the project comes paired with a six-date North American tour that starts up on Apr. 27. Listen to Malaa's Illegal Mixtape below and be sure to check out if he's coming to a city near you. Enjoy!

deadmau5 Shares Two New Songs "Polaris" & "Bad At Titles" With ATTLAS Off Compilation Album

deadmau5

Volume six of Mau5trap's We Are Friends compilation has arrived and it's a big one. Right off the bat we are greeted by two new deadmau5 originals, "Polaris" and "bad at titles", the latter of which is a collaboration with ATTLAS. There has been great anticipation regarding the release of both tracks so we're glad to see these two gems see the light of day.

"Polaris" is a beautiful song from beginning to end, showcasing Joel Zimmerman's knack for chilling melodies that gradually build and evolve over a song's duration. He introduces these lush, uplifting chords around the 1:30 mark and intertwines them with these gritty electro synths. While there's great contrast at first, Zimmerman smoothly blends the two together for an energetic progressive sequence.

His collaboration with ATTLAS, on the other hand, embraces a darker, techno-based sound that incorporates low-end, rumbling percussion for the majority of the song while while carrying a cinematic, space-like vibe that builds throughout.

Mau5trap's sixth edition of We Are Friends is comprised of 21 tracks and features some talented up-and-comers like No Mana, Black Gummy, Neus and many others. You'll also hear a brand new remix of deadmau5's single "Let Go" feat. Grabbitz at the very end of the minimix by NemesiZ. You can stream deadmau5's new tracks "Polaris" and "bad at titles" with ATTLAS, in addition to the whole compilation, below. Enjoy!

After dropping his W:/2016Album in December, deadmau5 keeps the music coming with another LP called stuff i used to do which is a 16-track compilation of his works dating from 1998 to 2007. He shared a minimix for the new project earlier in the week, but now serves up the full album for free and it sounds great. 

It covers a variety of genres from techno, house and electro to experimental and hip-hop. It's interesting to compare the old deadmau5 music to the new deadmau5 music. We're curious to hear your thoughts so please throw them in the comment section below. Enjoy!
