deadmau5 is working on his film score debutDeadmau5 Mau5ville Level 2

The mau5 is “out of the bag” and in the studio working on the inaugural film score of his career. deadmau5 originally declared his interest in film score writing following the release of where’s the drop?, the mau5trap producer’s full-length orchestral album. “I’ve always wanted to go into film scoring,” deadmau5 said at the time of where’s the drop?‘s arrival. “I think that this is a better entry point because now I’m like fucking walking the walk, as opposed to fucking talking the talk. Which is all you can do before anyone would think that you are capable of scoring a film, you know what I mean?”

deadmau5 similarly expressed his hope that where’s the drop? would resonate with figures in the film industry. “Hopefully this kind of puts me on the radar with professionals in that area or even the public to want something like that,” deadmau5 stated, “It would be cool to custom-write music for some kind of story. That’d be cool.” Judging by deadmau5’s recent tweet, where’s the drop? certainly registered on the “radars” of film producers, as the mau5ville head has now landed his first film score. deadmau5 will compose the score for Constantin Film and Netflix’s joint production, Polar.

Revisit deadmau5’s canonized classic LP ‘Random Album Title’ as it turns 10 years old

Revisit deadmau5’s canonized classic LP ‘Random Album Title’ as it turns 10 years oldDeadmau5 Stoge

Ten years ago, deadmau5 changed the course of dance music with Random Album Title, one of the genre’s most influential albums to date. Arriving on Ultra Records in September of 2008, deadmau5’s third official LP put the world on notice that the Joel Zimmerman had arrived, was here to stay, and had a lot more up his sleeve. At the time of the album’s release deadmau5’s mighty mau5trap imprint was only a year old, and would go on to share Random Album Title‘s now iconic bolded arial black font. Time to get nostalgic.

As far as listens go, the record is still a front-to-back odyssey of genre-defining cuts. From the prophetic meeting of two future legends on the Kaskade-assisted instant classic “I Remember,” to the soothing waves of “Faxing Berlin,” the track list reads like a definitive collection of late 2000’s progressive house and electro. The horde will likely go on debating whether Random Album Title beats out its follow up, For Lack of a Better Name as deadmau5’s magnum opus until the end of time. What isn’t up for debate – the clear ripples of influence created by Random Album Title that are still felt across the dance music spectrum to this day.

A HARD Day of the Dead poster has surfaced… but it may be too good to be true

A HARD Day of the Dead poster has surfaced… but it may be too good to be truePrydz Mau5 Hard Dotd

UPDATE: HARD has confirmed this lineup is not the official lineup

 

Los Angeles electronic events giant HARD recently made headlines with the return of their once defunct Day of the Dead property, bringing the festival back to its original home at LA Historic Park this November. The news set the rumor mill ablaze, speculating which HARD alumni might make their return for the festival’s re-inauguration, and now a lineup poster has surfaced. At first glance, it looks like one of the most stacked dance billings of the year, though upon closer examination, some minor fractures in the unconfirmed lineup may reveal this one is too good to be true. No harm in putting our eggs in this basket for the time being and hoping it actually materializes though.

The rumored lineup features a rare 2018 performance from Skrillex — fans might remember the last time Sonny Moore rested the Skrillex project to link up with Boys Noize for Dog Blood in 2013, Moore’s comeback performance was at none other than Day of the Dead. Boys Noize is featured on the lineup as well, and anytime Skrillex and Boys Noize are in the same hemisphere, there arises a glimmer of hope for Dog Blood fans. Gesaffelstein is tapped as a DJ headliner and a Bixel Boys reunion in the undercard are some red flags. Again, this could either be the greatest lineup of the season or a certified fake. Deadmau5, Kaytranada, Bloody Beetroots live, and Baauer all make appearances on the rumored roster as well, with a grip of additional dance music power players. For Day of the Dead’s highly anticipated return to LA, we’re betting HARD pulled out all the stops — fingers crossed this one is confirmed official.

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.
