Fresh off a red carpet appearance at a cat film festival, the one-and-only deadmau5 is back in the news for something music related: he’s discovered a new vocalist by the name of Nick Chiari, aka Grabbitz, who surprised the Toronto-based producer with a dreamy edit of his own original production, Silent Picture, off the while(1<2) album.
In a similar vein to his discovery of The Veldt vocalist Chris James, deadmau5 came across Grabbitz’ gorgeous edit by chance online, loved the track, and then reached out to the LA-based musician online
After connecting with the musician, it now appears that an official collaboration is in the works.
The edit perfectly marries the chill, progressive vibes of the original with a soft and peaceful vocal, all while an inviting melody and touching guitar riffs send you off to that warm and special place in your soul.
You can find the lyrics and a download of the edit on Grabbitz’ SoundCloud here. Grabbitz’ also just released his new Friends EP via Monstercat–pick it up on Beatport here.
