Good Morning Mix: deadmau5 celebrates the late i_o with mau5trap radio tribute mix
deadmau5 has returned with a particularly tender episode of mau5trap radio that celebrates the life of his musical comrade and dear friend i_o with a solemn hour of the late musician’s dark progressive and techno tunes.
Garrett Lockhart, known professionally as i_o, shared his from-the-heart productions with music labels around the world, including Armada and inHarmony Music, but longtime fans are likely to recognize mau5trap as his personal imprint of choice. From his debut release on the label—“Warning,” from mau5trap’s recurring We Are Friends compilation—to some of his most recent originals including August’s révolution and February’s NRG 444, i_o found an embracing home in the mau5trap family.
With the mau5trap radio mix, deadmau5 pays homage to i_o, celebrating his life and talents with more than an hour of the enigmatic producer’s musical visions, interview excerpts, and shared memories. As untimely and shocking as Lockhart’s death was for his family, personal friends, fans (new and old), and the electronic community as a whole, the mau5trap radio tribute stands as a humble reminder that his music will live on through eternity.
Listen to the full tribute mix below.
