Deadmau5 Lately

15 Mar

Deadmau5 has certainly been stirring up the soundcloud community lately, as well as Los Angeles. I saw Deadmau5 tweeted that he was venturing out to L.A. and didn’t think much of it until my friend told me that he made an appearance at Control last Friday at the Avalon (pictured above). It does make sense since his good buddy, Tommy Lee, was spinning with his partner DJ Aero that night. SOFI also made an appearance singing the vocals of Deadmau5’s “SOFI Needs A Ladder”. Cool stuff. Anyway, this first track here, that Deadmau5 put up yesterday, and is now up on Beatport for purchase! The second is another tune that he put up, but no mention of a release. I feel like he has a lot of unreleased material just waiting to be heard. Check these out.

Finally, Mr. Mau5!

1 Nov

Finally, Deadmau5 has released “Sofi Needs a Ladder”!  In September last year, the earliest forms of this song began to circle around the internet under the title, “ You Need a Ladder“.  It featured extended samples of the Zelda theme song and a heavy electro house beat.  The song resurfaced at Coachella 2010 amidst Deadmau5’5 EPIC performance (This was the debut of his “cube” light setup).  The Zelda samples were no longer included, but a distinct female voice now punched throughout the song.  This voice belonged to none other than Tommy Lee’s girlfriend, Sofi, whose name is an acronym for “Some Other Female Interest”.

At the end of last month, a remix contest began for “Sofi Needs a Ladder”.  The winner, which will be announced November 23, will receive an opening spot for Deadmau5 on his upcoming tour.  A creative electro remix by contestants Caudill & Turnipseed is included in the inaugural West LA Cnct post.   “Sofi Needs a Ladder” will be included in Deadmau5’5 upcoming album, 4 x 4= 12, released on December 6th.  Check out the full track listing at Consequence of Sound.
