Deadmau5‘s struck an underground gold mine, and luckily, he’s happy to share the wealth.
After an exciting string of announcements amidst the mau5’s final BBC Radio 1 residency show, the big cheese has thrilled fans with a more immediate gift. Fans of deadmau5’s radio show can relish in a complete collection of the music the artist slung out over the course of the last year thanks to the amusingly-named Spotify playlist “for a lack of a better playlist.”
From the music of Pryda, Gallya, ATTLAS, No Mana, Josh Butler, Rinzen, and many more, Mau5trap‘s gathered together the show’s complete 207-track long list that’s plenty easy to get lost in for 22 hours and 42 minutes if one feels so inclined.
Mau5trap’s looking towards an eventful new year. With fresh music from Joel Zimmerman, a new show, new signees, and more, it’s a good time to be a fan of the label, indeed.
Dallas’ Lights All Night has revealed its full lineup for 2017’s iteration of the festival, set fro December 29 and 30. The festival, the largest end-of-year production in the southern United States, is set to return to Dallas Market Hall for its eighth running with some of the biggest names in electronic music.
BlackGummy has fashioned a signature style out of crafting dark, cerebral originals which frequently walk the line between techno and electro. For his latest, however, the mysterious LA-based entity has taken a softer route.
“SuperHuman,” BlackGummy’s new collaboration with Colleen D’Agostino (who many will remember from deadmau5’s “Seeya”) is a lush, progressive house piece with an inspiring topline. The song recalls the finesse of many of BlackGummy’s most seminal inspirations like Eric Prydz, deadmau5 and more.
Colleen D’Agostino shared the poignant story behind the track:
“I met Iman (BlackGummy) through a mutual friend at mau5trap. He sent me an instrumental he was working on and I was immediately drawn to the intensity of the track. During the time we were in the studio, I found out that a friend of mine had cancer. Inspired by his story and the stories of a few other friends who have faced similar challenges, I was able to write lyrics that reflected their positivity and bravery. To anyone facing situations that may seem hopeless, I hope you find strength and courage in “SuperHuman.”
“SuperHuman” is out now on Ninety9lives. Stream it below:
