Deadmau5‘s debut score is finally here. Polar has been officially released on Netflix, scratching off a major bucket list item for the mau5trap‘s head honcho. Recently, Joel Zimmerman expressed to Forbes his list of nine life-changing moments, and scoring his first film was one of them, marking a music production milestone from one of the most prolific sound engineers in electronic music history.
The entire soundtrack is available on Spotify, and it contains sounds and arrangements familiar to fans of the esteemed producer. From the weight of his analog synth to his steady buildups and anxious melodies, the soundtrack most certainly boasts deadmau5’s signature style. His arrangements have always felt cinematic, so sharing the screen with music video virtuoso Jonas Åkerlund only makes sense.
The “Monophobia” artist recently told Billboard, “It’s a really busy, colorful movie. I just really wanted to wait for the right thing to come up, as opposed to doing some major motion picture thing … the next big Fast and Furious 23 or whatever they’re on.” Stream the Polar soundtrack below.
