While holding a phone up to record an entire set sounds brutal, thankfully someone stepped up and did just that for deadmau5’s set at Electric Forest under his techno alias Testpilot. It’s no secret Electric Forest is one of our favorite festivals, and this year was one of the best yet.
This video of the Testpilot set spans nearly two hours and highlights the dark techno sound the mau5trap label head showcases in these rare appearances as his alter ego. Check out the video below, with the tracklist in the video description, and enjoy!
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.
