My bad. Life got in the way and I’m a week behind, but never fear, Savior Faire is here. (60’s cartoon reference for those that get it).
Anyway, I’m dropping something I’m sure you will like, from Deadmau5. And if you don’t know who Deadmau5 is…we need to talk. Seriously.
Just in case:
Joel Thomas Zimmerman (born January 5, 1981), better known by his stage name deadmau5 (pronounced “dead mouse”), is a Canadian progressive-house music producer and performer from Toronto, now based in Los Angeles.
Zimmerman produces a variety of styles within the house genre and sometimes other forms of electronic dance music. His tracks have been included in numerous compilation albums such as the 2007 In Search of Sunrise 6: Ibiza CD. The February 2008 issue of MixMag’s music magazine included a free CD which was titled MixMag Presents: The Hottest New Name In Dance! DEADMAU5 Tech-Trance-Electro-Madness, mixed by Zimmerman. Tracks have also been included and presented on Armin van Buuren’s A State of Trance radio show. His debut album, Get Scraped, was released in 2005, followed by others in the next few years.
I just purchased “HR 8938 Cephei” from a EP of the same name off of Amazon a couple of weeks ago. To be honest, I’d heard of Deadmau5 a long time ago, but never spent the time to listen to his music until a few months ago, and now I’m a BIG fan. His work and the collaborations he’s done with Kaskade are absolute badass, if you, like me, are into dance, trance and progressive house music.
So let me share not only this track, but one from a few months ago that Deadmau5 put down of a Sci-Fi short story by the late, great Ray Bradbury, called “The Veldt.” I encourage you to check out the story and get the Deadmau5 track of the same name into your collection.
