The best of: deadmau5
Love him or loathe him, Joel Zimmerman is well-known for his colourful opinions across social media. One thing that can never be denied is the supreme production talent of the Mau5trap boss. We Rave You check out our Top 10 deadmau5 tracks of all time:
10) Let Go
A brooding, dark production, that contains a typically elongated Mau5 build-up, the grungey drop of ‘Let Go’ earns it a place in our dec of deadmau5 hits.
9) My Pet Coelacanth
An upbeat electro weapon pierced by the track’s one singular lyric, My Pet Coelacanth secures a spot at number nine.
8) The Veldt
A vastly different production to what we are used to from Joel, smooth melodic chords give this track an effortlessly chilled, and relaxing vibe.
Taken from 2014 album ‘while(1<2)’, the powerful chords of ‘Avarita’ showcase deadmau5 at his finest; producing insatiable tech-house.
6) Animal Rights
A 2010 classic in unison with Wolfgang Gartner, zippy chords fuse with hard electro hooks to create an instant banger.
5) Some Chords
Laced with a rumbling build, and powerful horns, ‘Some Chords’ sets the flavour for deadmau5’ dark yet brilliant 4×4=12 album.
4) Raise Your Weapon
Another 4×4=12 classic, piercing vocals haunt the production with moody chord-based layers and a rumbling breakdown.
3) I Remember
Joel’s first mainstream success, his 2009 breakthrough borders the lines of psy-trance and electro perfectly.
2) Ghosts N Stuff
Utilising the influence of Pendulum frontman Rob Swire, the use of elegant violin strings on Ghosts N Stuff showcase Joel’s incredible production talents.
A track over 10 minutes in length in its original form, Strobe has not only become one of dance music’s all-time greatest tracks, but a production worthy of film soundtracks.
