Joel Zimmerman has never been one for convention. Already associated with technical Electro House cuts and mouse heads of assorted technological advances, his Pete Tong premiered new single opens yet more creative boundaries under the illustrious Deadmau5 moniker. Stumbling upon up and coming vocal talent Chris James on Twitter, ‘The Veldt’ pits his divine top line against a host of deeply melodic progressions and ambient leads. Based upon American fantasy writer Ray Bradbury’s ‘The Veldt’, imagination truly surpasses fashion for this emotively tuned journey of blissful Electronic manoeuvres. Those who thought they had Deadmau5 figured out are sure to be pleasantly surprised by this collection of beautiful and intimate digressions from a force still to be reckoned with in global Dance music.
The radio edit of ‘The Veldt’ is released on May 6th, while the two track EP also featuring ‘Failbait’ will be out on June 25th via his own Mau5trap Recordings.
