In just a few weeks, Joel Zimmerman will bring his all-new Deadmau5 live show to New York’s Governors Ball festival. While building the new rig has occupied most of the producer’s time lately, he took to Twitter to reveal he has “probably 2 albums’ worth” of new music at various stages of completion.
One of the tracks we can expect to hear in his sets this summer is the collaboration with Monstercat recruit Grabbitz, which started taking shape last month. The team-up was sparked after Grabbitz uploaded a vocal edit of Deadmau5’s “Silent Picture,” from his most recent album While(1<2), to SoundCloud. Almost eight months after it surfaced, Zimmerman reached out on Twitter to make it official.
Now a tantalizing snippet of the production has surfaced with a typically-Deadmau5 introduction: “Yeah yeah yeah…. it’s coming along.” Take a listen to the collaboration – for the moment artfully titled “aassddff” – below.
Meanwhile, if you happen to be in Las Vegas in July, you can catch the Deadmau5 ‘Unhooked’ set at XS. Otherwise, his more elaborate live show is traveling to Bonnaroo, Glastonbury, Austin City Limits and several more marquee festivals this summer.
