Xmas n stuff.

(Sorry for burying Strobe EP...look down for the great news about that...Very good EP, just wait for iTunes, hefty price of 10 pounds there...)

As it gets closer to Christmas I cannot ignore the song that has been going round in my head all day, which no doubt you will enjoy.

EDIT: I almost forgot that it's nearing New Year too...which means New HD mau5head soon! Be excited...We'll most likely see it then.

Merry Christmas!

Also of note is this new song that Deadmau5 has been playing in his live sets.

Apparently called October, however it could be called anything different, as posted by someone random on Youtube... Was pointed out on TDC, but now we have the full song set rip.

Another thing. I'd like to point out to you Deadmau5' stickam profile, where he often just mixes random songs. Beware, the chatroom is full of spammers, but watch out and you might see something new.

And his facebook profile where he often posts things about new stuff.

I'm very impressed with Strobe EP, Plump DJs remix is awesome although it doesn't really have anything similar with original song in places. DJ Marky & S.P.Y remix sounds very drum n bass / dubstep if you're into that, Michael Woods remix definitely best IMO.

Lastly I'd just like to point out to you all a bunch of killer songs that Deadmau5 uses in his sets. Check here.

And out from me, and CHECK OUT STROBE EP! vvvvv

My personal opinions on the EP? Not bad, but not what I was hoping. (in a bad way) My personal fav mix would have to be the Plump DJs remix, but the original is still my favorite. Over-all its a decent EP, every remix is definitely worth listening to, and still has some of that classic Strobe feeling we all have grown to love.

If your a DJ buy this EP on Beatport, if your an average listener, I would wait for it to come out on iTunes or similar music store. I personally find the prices on Beatport over-priced, but you pay for the quality of the bit-rate, so it is a good thing if you are a DJ mixing some tracks. ;)

Strobe Remixes / Moguai / Wristbands

New email from Deadmau5 says that next EP will be...Strobe Remixes!

Quite exciting- and Strobe has been met very positively, and deadmau5 has been playing it at most concerts.

Will also be good to learn who's doing the remixes for this legendary track. I'm thinking trance producers.
More will come of the strobe remixes as we hear of it.

I'll also quickly give a shout to the new Touch Mix app on iTunes for iPod touch / iPhone.

US Wristband!

Also on is the US equivelant of the UK "roundhouse set" wristband. This wristband includes the Terminal 5 set, Ghosts game, wallpapers, Ghosts n' stuff Remix video (Sub focus remix to ghosts n stuff video on uk wristband) as well as of course the Terminal 5 set. I'm guessing this is similar to the roundhouse set but here are links to buy both wristbands.

Next up is a new release on mau5trap by moguai, an EP called Lyve/Impereal.

I take it back about Moguai being a one time release on mau5trap. Could even be seeing an album by him. Deadmau5 says he's the one to watch in 2010...and he certainly thinks high of him to call him the best uprising artist of 2009 on Top 100 DJs...

Listening to Lyve, it sounds similar but not the same to ZYVOX.

Description: After a sterling debut release, Moguai (deadmau5's 'one to watch' 2010) answers the call once again and turns in another outstanding EP in the form of Lyve.

Pulsing bass, rolling chords and glitchy pads all add up to give Lyvea truly euphoric atmostphere, think Gui Boratto and Deadmau5 in one in Hamley's and you're just about there.

Impereal takes things bigger and more hands in the air. With huge stabs, side chained bass and climbing caves, dance floor devastation is almost certain.

This EP comes just at the time I'm learning FL Studio - I'll watch this one closely.
