Canadian DJ and producer Excision is an inimitable talent. Eluding expectations at every turn he continues his rapid ascent to international acclaim with each step, leaving a string of blown speakers and stunned clubbers in his wake. Now, having officially joined the Mau5trap clan with Deviation – a collaborative effort with long-time sparring partner Datsik that featured on the recent Meowingtons Hax compilation – we are proud to announce the next chapter in his story with the release of his debut album X Rated.
As Deadmau5 embarks upon the â€˜Meowingtons Haxâ€™ North American tour alongside a host of the Mau5trap stable, the label head leads the charge with a brand new compilation. It features new and exclusive tracks from Deadmau5 himself and a host of the artists featuring on the tour, as well as a selection of tracks from new additions to the label that you can expect to hear a lot more from in the coming months. With contributions from Feed Me, Tommy Lee & Aero, Excision & Datsik, Zedd, Moguai, Al Bizzare and James Njie, this compilation is set to be the soundtrack to the tour carnage that will undoubtedly ensue.

Feed Me returns after his Beatport top 10 dominating ‘Big Adventure’ EP with yet another aptly named ‘To The Stars‘ EP. Including four hard hitting, breath taking and expertly produced tracks due for release on deadmau5′s mau5trap label.
He teams up again with the mesmerising vocals of Tasha Baxter for ‘Strange Behaviour’ – an anthem in it’s own right that will overrule your speakers with resonating bass riffs and chunky beats, not to mention the unforgettable, catchy vocals.
‘To The Stars’ combines Feed Me’s signature acid bass lines with more cleverly programmed synth hooks and spine tingling breakdowns. He adds a quirky intro to ‘Pink Lady’ then straight into rattling bass and noises you would have never even heard of on tracks previously to this.
When you thought Feed Me couldn’t deliver anymore we are blessed with ‘Chain Smoker’ – a track to keep feet stomping and heads blown on any dance floor.
Feed Me yet again takes us on one of his spectacular journeys through musical genius and what better label to play host than deadmau5′s globally dictating mau5trap. Hope you all enjoy.
The Stimming remix strips the track back to a minimal-tech affair, highlighting the vocals and adding a sprinkling of live instruments; the Noisia mix delves deep into the bassbins with its gnarly dubstep; whilst the Madeon mix translates the track into a glitchy Gallic electro number.
On the day of his own imprints beatport beach party, mau5trap holds the no. 1 slot in the beatport chart with Deadmau5′s ‘HR 8938 Cephei‘. The return-to-roots single has certainly gone down well with those who enjoy the progressive genre. So for all of you lucky enough to be attending the Miami South Beach located party, enjoy!
