deadmau5 & Lights team up for ‘When The Summer Dies’: Listen
‘When The Summer Dies’ showcases Lights pop sensibility set against fun and playful production from deadmau5. The track comes in partnership with a music video to arrive soon, marking a special milestone in deadmau5’ digital roadmap, as it will be created in Manticore; a virtual gaming experience by his and Richie Hawtin’s new company PIXELYNX.
While the release comes with a ton of cool additional features, the song itself is ironically also a world within its own. The track features electric synths that zing and zap all while Lights’ vocals sit delightfully on top of this voltaic universe that deadmau5 has created. As the song approaches the chorus, all drums drop out, putting a spotlight on Lights’ voice that eventually leads to a hypnotic drop and fades out.
