deadmau5’s ‘Strobe’ receives official drum & bass remix
Today, September 9, mau5trap finally clued fans into the release date of the long-awaited mau5trap 100 EP, which is slated to be a collection of official remixes to deadmau5‘s “Strobe.” A cryptic ticker video posted to mau5trap’s social media accounts strongly suggests that the EP will be available Friday, September 23.
As mau5trap 100’s release draws nearer, remixes from the album have systematically surfaced; over the past several weeks, previews of Feed Me and Lane 8‘s remixes have sprung up on social media. Alongside today’s announcement, British producer Dimension made his “Strobe” remix available to stream in full via the UKF Drum & Bass YouTube channel.
Of the EP’s previously previewed selections, Dimension’s remix diverges the least musically from deadmau5’s iconic original. The producer leaves most of deadmau5’s production intact, commencing with a somewhat abbreviated introduction before moving into a drop which places a slight modification of the original synth-work atop a smooth drum & bass rhythm.
