The music industry changes people, but even though he’s been in it since the ’90s, deadmau5 has somehow stayed the same. The often controversial DJ/producer has made it apparent that he’s been in the studio with a lot of other artists lately and his collaboration with Grabbitz demonstrates that it’s been time well spent.
A throwback to an era in which the music termed “progressive house” was more of a journey than a destination, the track – whose working title on SoundCloud is “BLOOD FOR THE BLOODGOAT,” for god knows what reason – opens with contemplative vocals by an as yet unidentified male singer. Through the filter of deadmau5′ raw, stripped-down production style comes the kind of rudimentary melody that you could picture accompanying a steady groove in a tech house track. The warm progression between them ends abruptly after a couple cycles, indicating that the track may yet be a preview which will continue to evolve before its official release.
