Brand new Deadmau5 tracks streaming on Soundcloud

14 Mar


Over the past 24 hours, Deadmau5 has released two full length songs under his soundcloud “fml” moniker. This is the page where he’s put up his old demos and experimental tracks (often inspired by Minecraft…lol).

First up is the entirely ambient, yet gorgeous “Bleed.” Put this song on in the background as you study and you’ll be zoning out.

The other track harkens back to his days of “Clockwork” when he’d have epic, long, moody progressive house tracks. This track, titled “HR 8908 Cephei” is fairly minimal at parts, but groovy throughout…I think I like this one track more than the entirety of “4×4=12.”

The Legend of Zelda — new trend in the electronic music world?

At the end of last month, I made a post about upcoming dubstep tracks. Among that list was a song called “The Hero” by an up-and-comer, appropriately named Nostalgia. It featured an intro sampling the old-school theme song to the video game classic, The Legend of Zelda. We can expect that song to drop later this month on Play Me Too Records.

Now we have another EDM song to look forward to coming out this month featuring the legendary sample.

Zedd, an extremely hard working electro house producer, made famous by a couple of high profile Skrillex remixes, is now giving his fans a blast from the past. On Bazooka Records, he’ll be releasing his single “The Legend of Zelda,” along with Electrixx’s remix of it on March 21st. I have yet to hear the Electrixx remix, but it’s sure to be sick considering some of their fiery electro house tunes in the past like “Tetris” and “Tokyo Rush.”

Here’s a clip of Nostalgia’s dubstep take on the Zelda theme:

This is Zedd’s electro house take on it:

And just for fun…here’s Deadmau5′ old mix of “You Need A Ladder” which used this sample for an intro:

Deadmau5 — new dubstep project in the works

4 Mar


Deadmau5 just finished updating his loyal facebook fans saying that he has been messing around with some new dubstep. I suppose after the well received “One Trick Pony” and “Raise Your Weapon,” he decided to give this dubstep thing another go.
Well, he just uploaded a zip file onto mediafire for us all to have a look at. It’s full of samples he’s come up with on Ableton — everything from wobbles, to kicks & snares.

Check it out…the file is named Cool Story Brostep, playing off of the new “brostep” moniker for new-age dubstep that Porter Robinson helped make infamous. Here is the mediafire link:
