Raized By Wolves - The Call

Hey there followers, just got some news of a couple of videos of Raized By Wolves! The boys that are signed to Mau5trap right now, have a couple of new videos to share the first we have their new video for "The Call", and the second link we have is for the Eyes Remix, which is also available as a free download! Raized By Wolves - The Call

New Deadmau5 South Africa tour ahead / New version of Raise Your Weapon

In the most cyclic redundant (see what I did there?) advertising feat ever, this site and video linked to by deadmau5 himself confirms that there will be a tour in South Africa soon. The site is rather nondescript and links to the video...and the video points to the site. Dates, locations, all presumably TBA. We'll have it here as soon as it's revealed.

UPDATE: Dates announced

Cape Town, 1st December, Ratanga Junction
Durban, 2nd December, Wavehouse
Johannesburg, 3rd December, H20 Wild Waters

Raise Your Weapon, WIP Album version

Out of the blue, Deadmau5 linked to this WIP album version of Raise Your Weapon. In this case, the song takes on a melancholy feel, with no hard hitting synths, just pure chill. Oh, and with some extra vocals, presumably still courtesy of Greta Svabo Bech. Now I can see where Madeon got the extra vocals from for his remix...

Presumably, This is a WIP version from before 4x4=12, not for the next album. Shows how much songs change over time!

Oh, and just as a final note, we're testing out a new mobile version of the blog. To get there, hit this link! (hopefully on your mobile device...)

[MAU5038] Noisia - Tommy's Theme

Well, well, well. Mau5trap's surprise was a new release from Noisia. Should have seen this coming, as Noisia have produced some absolute bangers of remixes for Raise Your Weapon and Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites previously.

The track is called Tommy's Theme. Buy it, and I'll leave it up to your imagination who "Tommy" is...

Preview the FULL track HERE.

Something mau5trap this way comes coming our way Monday. Mau5trap is ever becoming more of an active label by each day, with great new releases recently from Excision and Raized by Wolves.

However Deadmau5 has also been talking about his track "Maths" which appeared yonks ago but was never released. 9 months later, possibly it will get a release? Maths has had a new mix on tour, and it sounds a bit different, being played with what sounds like live synths.

I quote from the mau5 "did i ever release "deadmau5 - maths" ? or am i losing my mind?"
No, you haven't released it mau5, and yes, you are losing your mind! This track has been around for 9 months!

I'll remind you Mike Duz worked on a great new remix of Maths recently, we're still awaiting a release of Moguai's Oxygen, and SOFI's new EP Locked and Loaded. And to think mau5trap started off with one guy and a track called Faxing Berlin...

Deadmau5 - Maths (Mike Duz Remix)

deadmau5 - Maths (Mike Duz Remix) SET RIP by Mike Duz

From the man himself, here's a Mike Duz remix of Maths! Ripped from a set by him.

If you remember Mike Duz, I previously blogged about him because he made a cool remix of Oxygen by Moguai that should be getting a release in October or November (not soon enough) on mau5trap.

If you don't remember him, check him out on his Soundcloud.

This remix itself might not be getting a release any time soon though due to Deadmau5' reluctance to release the track.

However, Pete Tong has recently revealed on Radio 1 that through chats with Deadmau5, Deadmau5 is looking to release a proper artist album in 2012, with more new content than previous compilations.

Lastly, just a reminder that Excision's new album X Rated is now out on Beatport through mau5trap now. (or click the image in the blog post below)

X-Rated On Mau5trap?

EDIT: Seems like X-Rated is only being released on mau5trap for the time being, which is pretty interesting since Excision and the like have been very loyal to the Rottun name (perhaps CD release?). But nonetheless, we have a new heavy-hitter on mau5trap!


Per the mau5trap Facebook postings, this is speculated to be Exicision's new album, X-Rated, which looks like it will be released on both Rottun Recordings and Mau5trap. We'll keep an eye out and let you know what happens there. Excision has been touring with the mau5, Tommy Lee, and DJ Aero the past few months, and we look forward to anything he releases on mau5trap.

And another little tidbit, the people who manage the mau5trap page also left us this, let the speculation begin!

The treat was a new The Call Remix!

Raized By Wolves - The Call (Eyes Remix) by mau5trap records

EDIT: More news, Pete Tong recently announced that he will have a "new deadmau5 / feed me & Skrillex on the show this week", per his Facebook status (social networking, where would we be without it?). We will also keep an eye out for this show tomorrow on bbc.
Unfortunately, the new tracks happened to be Cott's Face and Where Are My Keys, and the Skrillex being Ruffneck.
