As he is set to star on the cover of Rolling Stone in America hitting stands this Friday, Joel leads the charge by debuting The Veldt EP as an exclusive stream for the next 24hrs on the magazine’s website. The EP, which also includes “Failbait” with Cypress Hill will be available Sunday, June 25 via iTunes. Check it out here.
deadmau5 has returned to Europe for the first time since his 3D performance at London’s Millbank Tower in Nov 2011. Last week saw Joel revisit Oslo, Gothenburg and Stockholm before setting sail for Newcastle upon Tyne’s Evolution Festival. On the musical front, The Veldt EP is now available for pre-order here.
On Sunday 20th May at 7pm, deadmau5 and the team will be shooting his new music video in LA. We’ll pass you onto Joel for more info: “anyway, long story short, were doing a video shoot of epic proportions and we need a rather large crowd, and ill be on set with you guys all night long, so come on out if you’re up for it, and we’ll make a fun thing out of it” If you can make it, please click here to submit your info.
Five weeks ago, whilst streaming on live.deadmau5.com, mau5 wrote an instrumental that would become “The Veldt”. Chris James, a fan, took the track, added his vocal and shared on soundcloud.
Not long after, the horde discovered Chris’ upload and urged Joel to listen… Soon after, the two artists were speaking online and within days, deadmau5 featuring Chris James “The Veldt” was complete. The single is out now at iTunes and can be downloaded here.
