deadmau5’s 5 years of mau5 – scheduled for release on Friday November 21st via mau5trap / Virgin EMI, offers a cornucopia of works from one of electronic music’s heralded producers, deadmau5. Over the weekend, the tracklist was revealed via his fellow 2014 Gumball Rally cohort David Hasslehoff’s Twitter. It encompasses highlights from his beloved back catalogue alongside exclusive and new remixes from friends of his label mau5trap. The double album is now available for pre-order here.
Two 2012 singles – ‘Maths’ and ‘The Veldt’ featuring Chris James – landed on that year’s >album title goes here<. The cleverly titled album garnered him his second GRAMMY nomination in the ‘Best Dance/Electronica Album’. For 5 years of mau5, deadmau5 offers remixes of these two tracks from Eric Prydz (‘The Veldt’) and Botnek (‘Maths’). Earlier this month, the latter made its debut on Billboard.
‘Some Chords’, the opening track of deadmau5’s 2010 album 4×4=12, is a classic mau5 track bathed in synths and close friend Dillon Francis surprised fans in late August this year by playing his own remix of the track. The deadmau5 ‘Some Chords’ (Dillon Francis remix) made its official debut on Twitter at: https://twitter.com/mau5trap/status/522847939379863553 and has garnered over one million plays to date. Both the original version of the track and Dillon Francis’ remix appear on the retrospective LP.
Other aural treats featured on 5 years of mau5 include the deadmau5 smash ‘Ghosts n’ Stuff’ along with remixes by NERO and Chuckie; ‘Raise Your Weapon’ with the remix that introduced French producer Madeon to the world; and a new offering from Australia’s Wax Motif (The U.K.’s Q magazine premiered the track here); ‘Strobe’ with a 2014 remix from Michael Woods; and ‘Sofi Needs A Ladder’ with a remix by mau5trap artist Pig&Dan. iTunes, Beatport and Spotify versions of the album will also be privy to exclusive remixes.
