deadmau5 has just released a music video to accompany his long awaited collaboration with Rob Swire ‘Monophobia’. The track is part of the new compilation album mau5ville: Level 1. We first heard this track in one of deadmau5’s Twitch streams and it was fully premiered at Spring Awakening Festival in Chicago, Illinois.
deadmau5 and Rob Swire are no doubt two of the most talented producers in the electronic scene and have been for a while.

The last product of these two giants collaborating on a project was the iconic dance track ‘Ghosts’n’Stuff’, which released in which released in 2009 as part of deadmau5’s album ‘For Lack of a Better Name’. The track was an instant hit thanks to it’s infectious vocals courtesy of Rob Swire, and the incredible melodies and chords crafted by deadmau5 in his unmistakable style.
