deadmau5 tripled-down on his recent sounds of 7 today with 777, and it pays out in 13 minutes of haunting, atmospheric synth and piano peppered with shuffling beats.
777 includes bits and pieces of the other 7s we’ve heard lately, namely Gula, for which he uploaded a new version last night. The tune only takes on a true progressive house signature at around 10:45, but retains some of the piano and grinding stabs from the previous 10 minutes in what almost feels like an extended intro packed with interesting experimentation, something we’ve come to know and love from the mau5′ extremely active presence on SoundCloud.
With not much else to go on, the tags “Boeingstep” and “Blackjackstep” suggest the series of numbers 747 (boeing airplanes) and 777 (making 21) respectively. Despite the cryptic nature with which he shares his works-in-progress, you can bet we’ll get more details when he launches his subscription platform, presumably along the lines of Mad Decent Premium or OWSLA’s The Nest, in the next 24 hours, according to his Facebook posts today.
imagine… we’ll finally have a camp we can all enjoy with no spam. no phony accounts. no bullshit. no annoying kids. no nothing. just unadulterated music and live streams and access to pretty much everything i have on the go.
