Electronic dance music titan Deadmau5 is set to release new
music in June. 'The Veldt' EP (mini album) will include new track, 'Failbait',
featuring hip hop legends Cypress Hill, as well as a few key remixes of song,
'The Veldt', is set to hit the social networks and record stores by 25 June.
The EP' is the first in a series of EPs from deadmau5 to be released over the
coming months and these will be compiled into an album later in the year. The
mau5 recently overhauled his studio in his home town of Toronto. Since the end
of his gruelling North American tour he's locked himself in and gone on a
creative spree. Ever committed to his fan base, he has invested in a high tech
setup so that he can Live Stream his writing / recording sessions and give fans
a window into that process. "Unlike the ancient, deadmau5 created the
track live. The fans were ringside watching the creative process. This is a 180
from the bands a decade ago who claimed Napster was negligent in allowing their
unfinished work to be exposed. Once again, Deadmau5 is using the tools to his
advantage instead of being a Luddite resistance to change," an insider
told music-news.com. Over the weekend of 17 & 18 March during a 22 hour
Live Streaming session, deadmau5 created a new track titled 'The Veldt'
inspired by a short Sci-Fi story written by Ray Bradbury (check back page for
Joel's full blog post). He then uploaded it to his FML Soundcloud page for his
fans to enjoy. At this time it was just an instrumental. Deadmau5 is constantly
looking for innovative ways to push his craft forward. With this release he's
set another yardstick of what it is to be an artist in this socially networked
age! Listen to The Veldt [Livestream Recording] HERE!
