With “Album Title Goes Here” still at large, Mau5trap releases the first formal remix package for a track off of Deadmau5’s latest studio album, calling upon GTA, Nom De Strip and Eekkoo to put their touches on the album’s Wolfgang Gartner collaboration ‘Channel 42′.

On hand with a dark and grainy sound, GTA take the lead with a remix of stadium-worthy beat work. Borrowing heavily from the hypnotizing melodics of the Deadmau5 and Wolfgang Gartner original, Nom De Strip strips down it’s instantly recognizable Electro House segments to a minimalistic, bass-heavy beat, leaving it to aspiring Canadian Eekkoo to chop ‘Channel 42′ into a bouncy Tech House formula.

As officially premiered in Pete Tong’s Essential Selection last night, Mau5trap unveils the first formal remix for a track off of Deadmau5’s latest studio album, “Album Title Goes Here“, in the form of a Nom De Strip remix of ‘Channel 42′.

Borrowing heavily from the the hypnotizing melodics of the Deadmau5 and Wolfgang Gartner original, the Scottish producer strips down it’s instantly recognizable Electro House segments to a minimalistic, bass-heavy beat.

A formative figure amid the armada of talented British producers, the little sharp-teethed monster best known as Feed Me returns to Mau5trap to follow up on ‘Love Is All I Got’ with the release of a new three-track EP.

With a sound scope ranging from the distorted computer voice and intricate melodic stylings of title track ‘Death By Robot’ to the scattered bleeps of ‘Dialup Days’ and aggressive grinding of ‘Gravel,’ the ‘Death By Robot’ EP is a strong indication that the hysteria surrounding Feed Me remains wholeheartedly earned.

Teaming up alongside London-based ‘electrofolk’ outfit Crystal Fighters, Feed Me steps away from the tough Electro beats now synonymous with his musical movements for a single of beautiful proportions in ‘Love Is All I Got’. Blending systematic beats, delightful piano play and segments of his own, aggressive Electro sound, Gooch flexes his instrumental muscles to match the British/Spanish band’s soothing vocal stylings with an instrumentation that may stir a slight sense of disdain among the more pure bred Feed Me fans but indicates that the sharp-teethed Brit has still got multiple aces up his sleeve.

But where the original marks an unexpected digression from his signature sound, Feed Me’s own ‘Matilda’ remix sees him Gooch’s ‘Matilda’ remix sees him swap its more soothing beats and ultra-treble guitars for that tough collection of mechanic beats and pulsing lead work. Rounding off the package, German Deep House advocate Larse lays down a minimalistic number of deep bass play and rhythmic swells.

With the remnants of last year’s landmark release ‘So Long’ still doing the rounds, Dortmund’s rising Deep House advocate Larse makes his Mau5trap Recordings debut with his take on Feed Me and Crystal Fighters’ upcoming single.

Back on remix duty after taking Candi Staton’s ‘Hallelujah Anyway‘ through the motions of deep bass play and rhythmic swells, the German producer goes in a similar vein to lay down a minimalistic number of ‘Love Is All I Got‘. Teeming with steady grooves and reverberated melodies, Larse’s latest remix adds yet further weight to the Deep House overhaul that he remains a strong contender to.

Between the evocative crossovers and standard setting club stylings, Jon Gooch has remained as unpredictable as he is indispensible to Dance music. But back in true Feed Me fashion, London’s sharp-teethed little monster takes on remix duties for his own, forthcoming single alongside hometown ‘electrofolk’ outfit Crystal Fighters, ‘Love Is All I Got’.

Where the original marked an unexpected digression from his robust signature sound, Gooch’s ‘Matilda’ remix sees him swap its systematic beats and ultra-treble guitars for the tough collection of mechanic beats and pulsing lead work that we have come to associate with his Feed Me moniker over the years.

At the fold of a year that year has spelt increased visibility for his live capabilities, Joel Zimmerman strikes back under his Deadmau5 moniker with ”>album title goes here<” for Mau5trap in a bid to reconcile the energy of his live displays with the studio skill that made them possible.

But from the audacious grind of opening track ‘Superliminal’, it is evident that the laurels are yet to be rested on where the valiant mau5keteer is concerned. While ‘Channel 42’ alongside Wolfgang Gartner packs same perky Electro punch of 2011’s ‘Animal Rights’ with an uplifting twist, original productions ‘Closer’ and ‘October’ stay true to inventive synth work and sharp driving beats that have characterised his mouse-headed overhaul from the outset.

But never one to rely on the comfort zones of the modern industry, Zimmerman is out to challenge expectations with this latest full-length endeavor. From the unlikely union of Gerard Way’s aggressive top line to the gracious harmonies of Imogen Heap for ‘Telemiscommunications’ right through to ‘Failbait’ alongside Cypress Hill, his diverse yet consistent approach is what carries this record from anything the Canadian producer has done before. While soft-spoken story-piece ‘The Veldt’ alongside Chris James may have prematurely set expectations in motion, few could have anticipated that the well-branded producer would bounce back with such a sophisticated album. To the avail and frustration of clubbing enthusiasts across the globe, Deadmau5 remains the more unorthodox superstar to bless the 21st century, proving 2012 to be the year in which Joel Zimmerman found all the right buttons to push.

Hot on the heels a debut on BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix and the release of ‘Little Cat Steps‘, Jonathan Gooch’s forthcoming seventh release on Mau5trap sees the little sharp-teethed monster take a turn for the unexpected. Teaming up alongside London-based ‘electrofolk’ outfit Crystal Fighters, Feed Me steps away from the tough Electro beats now synonymous with his musical movements for a single of beautiful proportions in Zane Lowe-premiered ‘Love Is All I Got’.

Blending systematic beats, ultra-treble guitars, delightful piano play and segments of his own, aggressive Electro sound, Gooch flexes his instrumental muscles to match the British/Spanish band’s soothing vocal stylings with an instrumentation that may stir a slight sense of disdain among the more pure bred Feed Me fans but indicates that the sharp-teethed Brit has still got multiple aces up his sleeve.

Out November 11th on Mau5trap.

Update (11/10): The music video has been released.
