Hear Deadmau5’s creative process come to life with ‘Creep’
Yesterday Deadmau5 gave us new tunes for thought in his Nine Inch Nails-esque “Tesp” and “Silent Picture,” and brought out “Creep v2,” ostensibly a rework of 2012’s Spotify release “Creep.” It seems, however, that the release was not the finished product, and we awoke this morning to new presents under the f*ckmylife tree.
“Creep” was first to go up, and though its piano intro stayed the same, a glitchy, almost pizzicato body was layered into the melody. If the introduction of cold mechanical tones into the lush acoustics was surprising, so too was the actual description from Joel: “weird how it’s taken me over 5 years to write this track. nearly done. To do: more intricate arrangement, mix, bells n whistles n master.” Cue “Creep 2k13.” Have a listen to both below and rejoice at the very public creative process: According to this tweet, your patience will eventually be rewarded.
guess you’ll have to wait for this album. progress is being made.
