Aiming to highlight deadmau5′ back catalogue alongside A-list remixes of the Canadian producer’s five most recent albums, 5 Years of mau5 sees its first remix coming off Joel Zimmerman’s third studio LP 4×4=12. Francis takes the 2010 single Some Chords and transforms it from a slow-building progressive house ballad into a tenacious, club-ready cut from start to finish. Francis wastes no time in detonating his deadly drops–throwing in burst after burst of supercharged synth and offering little reprieve from a barrage of battering beats.
5 Years of mau5 is out Nov. 25 via mau5trap. Dillon Francis’ debut album Money Sucks, Friends Rule is out Oct. 27 on Columbia.
