deadmau5 releases full-orchestral album ‘Where’s The Drop’

deadmau5‘s highly anticipated full orchestral album, ‘where’s the drop?‘ has finally been released. The 15 track-album, produced on a full orchestral scale, was released exclusively on the streaming platform Tidal. Consisting of 15 tracks, including new versions of ‘Strobe’, ‘Imaginary Friends’, ‘Coelacanth’, ‘HR 8938 Cephei’ and more,  Joel Zimmerman’s latest album epitomizes what it means to be different.

In celebration of the album release, on Saturday, March 31 and Sunday, April 1 at the legendary Wiltern in Los Angeles, deadmau5 will be joined by a full orchestra to perform his music as orchestral pieces re-envisioned by Music Director and Composer Gregory Reveret. The April 1 show is sold out; however, Joel will team with Tidal to present a livestream of the unprecedented event.

Since releasing 7, a series of songs based around the Seven Deadly Sins in 2014, deadmau5 had the desire to produce them on a full orchestral scale. In meeting Gregory Reveret, music director and composer during a”mau5trap Mondays” Twitch session where he listens and critiques fans music for charity, he found someone that could properly score the music for an orchestra to execute, hence, ‘where’s the drop’s creation.

Non-members of Tidal can sign up for a special 90-day free trial to access the album and accompanying livestream. Tune in here at 9:30 PM PT for Tidal x: deadmau5 ‘where’s the drop?’ to watch the performance.
