deadmau5 reveals a secret track and releases the music video for ‘10.8’ with Mr. Bill [WATCH]
Techies and programming junkies who follow deadmau5 on Twitch follow the legend as he plays video games and dives into various creation workstations are often given an in-depth peak into his thought process. Sometimes, the mau5trap head honcho reveals production releases, which is exactly the case with his most recent stream. A secret track he made with streamer dronehands, “The Horn Of Jericho,” was revealed, of which deadmau5 reported to have contributed to around half the project — namely, the melody and synth design.
The orchestral low-end bass creates a bed for the high end plucks to go wild, while the percussion offers a more consistent energy. It’s certainly a different side to Joel Zimmerman more percussive arrangements, experimenting with melody structure and patchwork elements.
In other deadmau5 news, he recently released the music video for “10.8” with Mr. Bill off his mau5ville: Level 2 project. It’s an animated, computerized video of organized chaos, contrasting sublimely alongside the complex percussion audio. A busy start to 2019 for sure in Zimmerman’s world, whose debut score is also set to hit Netflix on January 25 in the film, Polar.
