Deadmau5 teases Kill the Noise collaboration ‘Killthemau5’
Whether stirred by the Daft Punk hysteria or his own spontaneity, Deadmau5 has created a hype machine of his own in the past two weeks, unleashing a total of four track previews. While “Suite 03” was a nod to his Random Album Title days, the remaining newly previewed productions have showcased an unbarred creative drive to differentiate his sound. In a rather unlikely scenario, Zimmerman’s latest preview “Killthemau5” features clamorous OWSLA talent Kill the Noise. While the track begins innocently enough with sweeping, orchestral chords, the mood shifts a bit suddenly with a sporadic, variegated dubstep drop.
Deadmau5 said of the track: “‘I’ve bastardized it a bit. But I’ll pass it back to Jake and see what’s up.” Hence, “Killthemau5” is still a work in progress, and judging by Zimmerman’s words, the half time drop has yet to be properly manipulated by the diabolical hands of Kill the Noise. Regardless, “Killthemau5” is undeniably one of the more intriguing collaborations we’ve seen from the mau5.
