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 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!
