deadmau5 to produce rising vocalist BoMason’s entire album

Dance music’s big cheese is a man of his word.

While it’s no secret that Joel Zimmerman is a candid, unfiltered mastermind, earlier this year, deadmau5 happened upon aspiring vocalist  BoMason. Lo and behold, after gaining an immense appreciation for his work, the legendary talent had reached out to said aspiring producer in the hopes to help kickstart his career. While the style and genre aren’t one would necessarily expect from the dance music icon, deadmau5 was incredibly supportive of Bo Mason’s palpable talent, even going so far as to extend him the offer of a lifetime — that is, if he could fulfill a simple challenge.

If Bo could attain one million plays — across all his songs — he would fly him out to mau5trap and help him co-produce an album.

It’s important to know though that at the time of the discovery, BoMason was near a mere 800 SoundCloud followers. His most-played track, “Evolve,” sat at 134,000 plays. Now, at the time of writing, it’s at 339,000.

Nearly a year later, BoMason has surpassed his one million mark and deadmau5 is keeping good on his word. In a recent Twitter conversation, the big cheese congratulated Bo on the achievement and it seems the album will be coming after all.

While the news of the record’s forthcoming production remains fresh and a release date is assumingly far off, with mau5’s production proclivity in mind and his recent work with Shotty Horroh considered, the new record will be top notch.
