It’s official, deadmau5 has confirmed the next level to his burgeoning mau5ville series with a cryptic tweet from his mau5trap label. After his successful mau5ville: Level 1 release in July, which featured “Monophobia,” mau5’s first collaboration with Rob Swire in nearly a decade, the label boss wastes no time in moving onto the second chapter of the project. The song on the teaser is a track deadmau5 made while streaming to his fans, “Midas’ Heel,” hinting it might be complete. There is also a numbered sequence that reads “34.052235 – 118.243683.” Then what looks like a compass with a mau5head needle spins, landing on the number 300. One fan plotted these coordinates, and found it’s close to the former LA Stock Exchange building and current massive nightclub, Exchange LA.
In the rumor mill, Chinese streaming platform, Netease Cloud Music, reported the album is expected to drop on September 23 along with a world tour announcement. Rumors from the streaming platform also suggest that mau5ville: Level 3 will be released concurrently with the upcoming tour, and these next two collaborations contain 40 songs with about 100 musicians working on them.
“Run The World” is a testament to how well the producer makes future bass and beyond, experimenting with some ethnic instrumentals on this one and fusing it with wavy synths under echoing vocals to catalyze a tribal reaction.

Both on the road and in the studio, Don Diablo has had perhaps his most prolific year yet. In a mere six months, the Dutch artist has released an impressive number of remixes and originals, provided his debut Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1, and announced a studio album to come in the fall.
Amid a jam-packed summer of playing massive festivals around the world like Tomorrowland, Lollapalooza and Creamfields, Don Diablo will celebrate the fifth anniversary of ‘Insomniac presents Awakening’ by playing a special three-hour extended set at Exchange LA. Taking place on June 30, the artist has expressed his excitement about this event:
“Excited to be coming back to LA performing my only solo date there this year. I’m flying in especially from my Ibiza residency to hit the West Coast with a big show. Expect new visuals and a special extended set of all my releases, remixes, edits & brand new unreleased music from my forthcoming album.”
