Weekend Rewind: Deadmau5’s 2008 Grammy-nominated remix of ‘The Longest Road’
Many people are aware of Deadmau5′ 2012 and 2013 Grammy nominations, but less are acquainted with his 2009 nomination for “The Longest Road” (released in 2008). The track was considered for “Best Remixed Recording, non classical” and although it didn’t win at the awards show, it’s still one of his best offerings. Everything from Lissie’s rapturous, smoky vocals to the tinkling melody and infectious bassline are blissful and calming. With the summer months rapidly approaching keep this song in mind for your top down drives and festival road trips.
Fun fact: Deadmau5’s remix was featured in Tap Tap Revenge 3.
