If only this were a 100th post, it would be more fitting...


1. Continuous Mix
2. Some Chords
3. SOFI Needs a Ladder
4. A City In Florida
5. Bad Selection
6. Animal Rights (w. Wolfgang Gartner)
7. I Said (Michael Woods Remix)
8. Cthulhu Sleeps
9. Right This Second
10. Raise Your Weapon
11. One Trick Pony
12. Everything Before

Some Chords, the epic electro banger that held no.1 of the beatport charts for a while earlier this year...

SOFI Needs a Ladder, the vocalized edit of the bassy, staple song of deadmau5 and sofi...

then A City in Florida, formerly deadmau5' remix of Paco Di Bango's World from Orlando Voorn, an epic live song.

Bad Selection, the fun song formerly known as Hard Selection...

Animal Rights, really catchy, great synths, best played loud.

Michael Woods' Remix of I Said, the original synthy collaboration between deadmau5 and chris lake, now turned into a fast progressive journey...

Cthulhu Sleeps is the "techie banger" which has been echoing around deadmau5' live sets to great acclaim...

Right This Second, formerly Moonlight Sonata Esque / Atrium is progressive and epic.

Raise Your Weapon is the song with vocals by Greta Svabo Bech. Staple deadmau5 progressive chords lead up to an explosive dubstep finish.

One Trick Pony again takes SOFI's complimentary vocals and again employs deadmau5' take on dubstep...

and to end, Everything Before, an overlooked song from 2007, with some epic beats ending deadmau5' newest, and arguably best album.

New Soundcloud / Youtube stuff / Chris Lake - Sleepwalker released

Deadmau5 likes Minecraft. He's done a few pieces for it - and also a few other tracks too. They mostly come from Soundcloud. Now I've finally found out how to embed these players...


This one was a track described by deadmau5 on facebook in production to be "the song to one up strobe." here's a WIP version.

The song is of course a reference to his own video:

Here's a nice little tune from recently...oh, a cool video too.

And also just a reminder...Bad Selection is released on iTunes this sunday and a new tune from Chris Lake called Sleepwalker has recently been released on mau5trap...

Deadmau5 - Right This Second (The real one this time)

Moonlight Sonata Esque, or Atrium...but it's called Right This Second. Played on Radio 1 yesterday (5th November 2010) by Pete Tong.

New album tracklist / SOFI Needs a Ladder RELEASED | EDIT: UPDATED

Let's get all the links out of the way...

SOFI Needs a Ladder

1. SOFI Needs a Ladder (Original Mix) - 6:42

SOFI Needs a Ladder is long overdue, a great electro house song, you'll love it.

If you can't be bothered right now though, it's also coming on the new compilation album / EP 4x4=12. Which brings me to some news about it...

Change to the tracklist

Not exactly expected however new posts about the forthcoming release such as these: 1 2 3

...All show a different tracklist, with but 2 changes:

1. Some Chords
2. Sofi Needs a Ladder
3. City In Florida
4. Bad Selection
5. Animal Rights
6. I Said (Michael Woods Remix)
7. Cthulhu Sleeps
8. Right This Second
9. Raise Your Weapon
10. One Trick Pony
11. Everything Before

Which means we lose from the album Sleeping Beauty Pills.

The album will still be released on December 6th in the UK and December 7th for the rest of the world.

Single Releases
The album will be released soon; however in the run up to the release, several of the tracks are to be released on iTunes (and probably other retailers) periodically.

SOFI Needs a Ladder - 31st October
Right This Second - 14th November
Bad Selection - 21st November
Raise Your Weapon - 28th November

4x4=12 Release - 6th/7th December

Which only leaves me to do an end compilation of videos as a low quality preview for the whole album.
Needless to say...spoilers, although some of these tracks have of course been around a while..

(Click on link above video to buy respective release - on beatport, on Ultra US where possible. If not in US find respective release on another label)

3. City in Florida

4. Bad Selection

7. Cthulhu Sleeps

10. One Trick Pony (with SOFI)

A City In Florida (New Track)

Here it is, the mysterious track we all have been questioning since we first heard the title. The song, which was included for free when you purchased a ticket to any of Deadmau5' set upcoming events, titled A City In Florida has now reached the net.. and we think you may find it a tad familiar..

Thats right its the Paco di Bango's World remix we have heard on the net! Only, minus the samples from the orignal song. So we have the raw song here, sounds great just like the remix.. minus the vocal bits.

here is the original remix deadmau5 made;
Orlando Voorn - Paco di Bango's World (Deadmau5 Remix)

New EP "Sofi Needs A Ladder" including a remix by you!?

Thats right mau5 fan5! The next major EP to be released in the name of the mau5 will be for the track a lot of you have been dying to get their hands on; Sofi Needs A Ladder

We don't have much info on what the EP will have, or what the competition prizes will be. But stay tuned for more info! :)

There is a remix competition starting soon, the parts have just been released on beatport TODAY, so go ahead and start doing what you are good at. Come up with something creative, and to the point, create a remix that will be out there but that you also know people will like!

Remix parts available on beatport NOW.

Animal Rights RELEASED / Update

Click the cover art to buy the track on Beatport

iTunes Link

Exclusive to Beatport, this is a fine collaboration between Deadmau5 and Wolfgang Gartner. Again: These 2 artists have often been compared for their similarity, and they produce a track which reflects both of their styles, with really playful solid synths.


Deadmau5' UK tour is scheduled from the 8th December until the 18th, visiting 6 locations in the UK. You can buy tickets here.

Order before the 16th September to receive a free, unreleased track, "A City in Florida".

When we find information on this track, we will blog on it, but as of yet the track has not been seen.

Deadmau5 UK Winter Tour 2010 / New song previewed live - RAISE YOUR WEAPON?

On the Radio 1 show recently, it was mentioned that Radio 1 would "team up" with Deadmau5 for a show in Glasgow.

Now, Deadmau5 has revealed a full tour for the UK this December.

The venues covered -

8th / Bournemouth - O2 Academy
9th / Leeds - O2 Academy
10th / Manchester - Manchester Central (with Zane Lowe and Magnetic Man)
12th / Coventry - Ricoh Arena (with Zane Lowe and Magnetic Man)
17th / Glasgow - Braehead Arena (with Zane Lowe, Magnetic Man, and Calvin Harris (DJ Set)) (Highlights broadcast Live on Radio 1)
18th / London - Earl's Court (with Zane Lowe, Magnetic Man and Stanton Warriors)

Notice that if you buy your ticket for one of these shows online before the 16th September, you will receive a free unreleased track "A City in Florida"...It will be interesting to see what this track is.

It could be one nobody has heard before, or one of the instrumentals such as "Moonlight Sonata Esque".

Speaking of unreleased tracks, this leads me onto my next part of the post...

Recently Deadmau5' linked on his Facebook to this video from the Rock en Seine Festival...

Notable points in the video:
00:00 - Strobe
01:25 - First part of new song
06:24 - Dubstep drop of the new song

We can guess from the lyrics that this song will be called Raise Your Weapon, however this is unconfirmed. It appears to incorporate progressive house and dubstep elements into the song, with vocals from a yet unnamed vocalist. The drums appear to be taken from dub5tepthingie4.

Also, as some new but unconfirmed news, many have said there will be a 4th Mix album before the artist album. The 4th mix album may be in November, while the artist album is in January.

New collaboration with Wolfgang Gartner previewed - ANIMAL RIGHTS / Radio 1 Show

So, the big news has come out on Radio 1. Vernon Kay shortly interviewed him and revealed that he has a cold. That isn't the big news.

What was revealed to be the big news was that Deadmau5 will be linking up with Radio 1 in Glasgow on December 17th.

Also talked about in the interview with Deadmau5 - "I used to work for stock music companies that made stock music for commercials and stuff...I was composer for hire."

Here is the full show for Creamfields 2010. The part with Deadmau5 is from 0:38:30.

The new single from Deadmau5 was the collaboration with Wolfgang Gartner, the name of the song is Animal Rights.

(A song name decided by Wolfgang)

Deadmau5 & Wolfgang Gartner - Animal Rights


You will also see the link for the full show on the BBC website and when to listen.

It sounded like the perfect combination of the two artists. Made me think of Fire Power from Wolfgang and Ghosts n Stuff from Deadmau5.

Any way it is likely you will see this song shoot up the electronic charts soon :)


Friday, August 27, 2010

Big news ahead...?

Basically: Listen to Radio 1 (UK) at 4:30pm GMT 28th August 2010 for a special announcement / new single from deadmau5.

The special announcement? Well...let's expect it's that new album that's been in mau5lab for a long time.

Upcoming collaboration with Wolfgang Gartner / MTV VMAs / Dynamik

Alot of this post's news comes from MTV...

Deadmau5 as House artist for MTV VMAs

First of all, MTV have confirmed deadmau5 as the house artist for this year (2010)'s Video Music Awards.

A quote from the article from deadmau5 himself -

"Dance wasn't always considered pop, and people like Lady Gaga and [David] Guetta and those guys really brought it out to the commercial market," he said about bringing his sound to the masses. "I'm just getting a lot more fans and God bless it, and that's the goal of being an artist is to get yourself heard by any means possible."

Wolfgang Gartner

The next article revealing mau5 news from MTV...

In about a couple of months, we should see a collaboration from Wolfgang Gartner and Deadmau5. These 2 artists have often been compared, so it is fitting that we should see a collaboration from both.

As some landmark songs from Wolfgang Gartner, try Conscindo, or Wolfgang's 5th Symphony.

I don't think we need to discuss landmark Deadmau5 songs. :)

Quote from article:

"His newest release, "Undertaker," is a dark and sinister house anthem that sounds like an homage to Deamau5's hit "Ghosts n' Stuff," so it's only fitting that Gartner had some exciting news to share with us: "I just did a track with Deadmau5 that should be out in the next couple of months, which I'm really happy with. It was a really fun one. And there are a couple other collaborations that aren't done yet, so I shouldn't mention them just in case, ya know, they never get finished!""


As you can never do too much advertising for deadmau5 and his label...Here is a track from Michael Woods (remixer of Strobe and I Said) on mau5trap, which came out today (16th August). Also comes with a remix from label mate Moguai.

If the link doesn't work, tell me in the shoutbox.

Get well soon!

We hope for you to feel and get better soon Joel! Your fans are here and hoping for your return to good health!
