8 Songs, 44 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Mau5heads have waited nearly a decade for their king to reunite with Rob Swire, the Pendulum frontman and featured vocalist on 2009's “Ghosts ’n’ Stuff,” arguably deadmau5’s best-known song. Here, the two present “Monophobia,” a melodic trance odyssey that meditates on loneliness, with remixes from artists in the mau5trap family. Miami duo GTA shake things up with “Something Like,” a texture bomb that pings like the inside of a pinball machine, and Getter explores cinematic R&B on “All Is Lost.” As usual, though, the project’s highlight is deadmau5’s lone instrumental, the elegant “Nyquist,” which fuses abstract drills, clicks, and rhythmic snaps with the warm touch of a piano.

Ehh, been some time since heard anything new from Deadmau5

It's okay but would have expected something fresh and new but all it is is the same old sound and this short album lacks so much you wish that it was a full album. Glad to see him making a comeback but he needs to up his game.

As a longtime fan of the Mau5, I think Monophobia is by far going to be the best track he’s released in a LONG TIME!

Super excited for the extended version and the other notable tracks on this!

LEVEL UP!
