For three days straight on the weekend of June 8, the city of Chicago was filled with deep beats, pop-inspired melodies, and bass that reverberated through the streets. This is Spring Awakening, Chicago’s premiere electronic music festival. Located in Addams/Medill Park, the festival attracted concert goers far beyond the city limits to include residents from
Spring Awakening attendees were among the first to get a live preview of deadmau5’s latest collaboration with Rob Swire, reportedly entitled “Monophobia.” Listeners will remember Swire for his work with electronic music’s big cheese on 2009’s “Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff,” a song off of deadmau5’s album, For Lack of a Better Name.

It was a major announcement when Deadmau5 let it slip that he was once again working with Rob Swire. The duo’s last collaboration, ‘Ghost’n’Stuff’ is easily one of the most iconic dance music releases of all time. After near a decade of marinading in its greatness fans are once again ready for a new tune

Remember “The Veldt” by Deadmau5? The track that gave everyone the feels? Well, prepare to get that same euphoria right through the spine, as Canadian born Dezza and French producer Matt Fax have created a masterpiece with “Sweet Dream”, out on Enhanced Music.
Both producers have made it apparent that they take inspiration from Mr. Zimmerman, which is clearly evident in this collaboration as it heavily features piano-driven chord progressions, light kicks, and harmonizing electro-synths. The positive vibes from the production is complimented by some dreamy, vocals by Dezza himself.
To see how the track was forged production wise, check out Dezza’s walk through below:
I fancy myself to be a top-tier Deadmau5 fan, even if I think given the chance he would kick me in the balls if we ever met. The man just hates blogs but I digress. This morning Deadmau5 took to Twitter to explain why there has been a recent drought in new music from him.

Joel Zimmerman, better known as Deadmau5, has always had a sense of humor when it came to naming his album titles. Whether it was his 4×4=12 album, > album title goes here

Dolby Atmos is changing the live audio landscape by way of a new three-dimensional sound space. Venues play electronic music in stereo, which has sound directed through two speakers. This limits the listening experience because no matter how many speakers are in the club, there is still only two channels of sound. Dolby Atmos has created a space where the sound revolves around the listener; think 3D sounds.
Various artists are already taking advantage of the experience: deadmau5, The Glitch Mob, London Elektricity, and Yousef. In Dolby‘s newest video on their Atmos technology, deadmau5 demonstrates his process of producing a track for the 3D space. Throughout the feature, deaThe mau5trap label boss advises other producers using Atmos to, “keep most of [the tracks], still, front-and-center, because you have to think of Atmos like you’re looking at a movie screen.”
The “Strobe” creator praises Dolby’s resources by mentioning they have “the most arsenal out there to for people to enjoy the system on.” The use of leading edge technology has always been a major facet to deadmau5’s appeal as an artist, and with Dolby’s new, interactive method of sound design now becoming a reality, perhaps 3D deadmau5 productions aren’t too far off.
It’s no secret that pronounced vocals are the crux of many a classic deadmau5 tune. Consider Greta Svabo Bech‘s feature on the indelible dance classic “Raise Your Weapon,” for example, or Knife Party and Pendulum‘s Rob Swire on “Ghosts N Stuff.”
Deadmau5 has searched far and wide for his vocalists, even going so far as famously enlisting “The Veldt” vocals from a casual Twitter submission. Now, it seems the mau5trap head honcho is headed back into his classic camp for a new collaboration with Rob Swire.
He’s teased the suspected new track with a short snippet on his Twitch stream, titled as “Monophobia” for the time being — which is defined as the specific phobia of isolation; a morbid fear of being egotistical, or a dread of being alone or isolated. Although it’s still in its early stages of production, it’s certainly got all the elements of anthemic production proportions.
Now, it appears as though the two may actually release the collaboration sooner than anticipated after sending the internet into a frenzy with a new screenshotted private conversation.
