Deadmau5

It's been a while since I've posted, I've been really busy with schoolwork and whatnot, but here's another post!
Deadmau5 is a great producer, and his CD "For Lack of a Better Name" is my favorite.  The styles that he works with on this CD are great and range from electro house, prog house, with even some trance.  If you listen to this CD all the way through it's actually a mix and blends together very nicely.  I checked out his album 4x4=12, but didn't like it as much as this one.  The album starts out with a song titled FML which starts out with a snare intro and then turns into a very dirty and heavy synth lead.  After FML is a song named Moar Ghosts And Stuff which is the intro for his song Ghosts and Stuff which is his big hit.  I prefer Moar Ghosts and Stuff rather than the hit because it sounds way cooler and has a much nicer beat to it.  After ghosts and stuff comes Hi Friend which has a very electro feel to it.  Bot and Word Problems come next which are very trippy in nature.  They use voice samples and have very hypnotizing basslines.  Soma and Lack of a better name follow, Soma involved a lot of percussion noises and lack of a better name is a good song which brings back the synth and is a great build up for the next song which is the 16th hour. The 16th hour is one of my favorite songs on the CD.  I really like the sound of synths he used in this track, and the song merges in and out of two separate but awesome parts.  Finally Strobe is the last song.  Strobe is a beautiful song with an amazing beat and build-up, and at the end of the track you just can't help but to dance.  Overall, it's a great album and you should definitely check it out if you are into electronic music!

  6. I personally think deadmau5 is really overrated - Have really enjoyed his music in the past, but it's vibe is getting a little dated for my taste.

    Lets be frank though, its a great track :) thanks for the post
