With only three weeks left until the release of deadmau5′ double-disc While(1<2), Zane Lowe gave fans their second official taste of the two-and-a-half-hour album with a premiere of Seeya.
deadmau5 calls the “little funky, upbeat thing… a bit of a departure,” and fans familiar with his usual stylings of progressive and electro house would agree. The funk-laden Seeya is an older production finished up with the vocals of Colleen D’Agostino supported by a glitchy bassline and punchy piano chords. The comparatively slow production flirts hard with nu disco and demonstrates the diversity of the double album.
The complete BBC Radio 1 interview will be available in two weeks. Stick around after the track ends for the backstory on entering the Gumball 3000, and don’t forget to pre-order While(1<2) here, which comes with instant downloads of Avaritia and Seeya beginning May 27.
