Today, October 4, electronic musician deadmau5 celebrates the release of here’s the drop!, an album of remixes of material from his 2018 orchestral album – where’s the drop?
For it, plenty of revered tastemakers have been tapped for their talents to make this remix album a cerebral journey through sound.
The 15 tracks featured on here’s the drop! range from deadmau5’ most popular tracks (“strobe,” “monophobia”) to the more obscure (“hr 8939 cephei,” “caritas”) all with a twist. Morgan Page—who deadmau5 remixed his 2013 single “The Longest Road” (and a set staple on his current cubev3 tour)–offers up his version of “imaginary friends,” Matt Lange tackles “superbia,” and many more expertly reimagined offerings round out this ambitious album from mau5trap’s current artists and alumni such as Mr Bill, Sian, Rinzen and Tinlicker. There is also a remix from deadmau5’ collaborator from where’s the drop? Gregory Reveret. The full track list follows below.
