deadmau5 plants a flag in house territory with hau5trap label venture
You know mau5trap; now, meet hau5trap.
After launching mau5trap in 2007, deadmau5 is setting his sights on a new label venture aimed at house music—hau5trap. Billed as “the new premier collective for the who’s who of who’s next in all things house,” hau5trap will position fresh blood alongside seasoned mau5trap talent, with the first inkling of hau5trap sound set to burst out of the pipeline on March 4. hau5trap label-opening duties will be shared by Tommy Trash and Daisy Guttridge on “Hiiigh.” “Hiiigh” represents Trash and Guttridge’s first reunion since their 2019 tie-up, “Let Me Go” with i_o.
“With hau5trap, we get to support more things we love specifically in house music. Tommy Trash remixed my ‘Bridged By A Lightwave’ and ‘The Veldt’ tracks, so I’m happy to have him be the first artist to release on hau5trap,” deadmau5 said of the new initiative.
