It was well over a year ago when Kaskade and deadmau5 first teased a collaboration called "Beneath with Me" featuring vocals from Skylar Grey. It was their first collaboration since their 2008 "I Remember," which peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Airplay Charts.
Back in spring of 2015, deadmau5 uploaded two different previews of "Beneath with Me" to his now-defunct fuckmylife SoundCloud page, describing it as "a song about a dead person singing to a not dead person to come be dead with them. thats the idea anyway."
Earlier this year, Kaskade uploaded "Kaskade & deadmau5 (feat. Skylar Grey) - Beneath With Me V.3," after which deadmau5 tweeted in confusion saying he wasn't aware of any release plans.
In an interview with Revolt TV about a month later, Kaskade explained that both artists were releasing versions on their own terms and were, therefore, not always kept in the loop. Kaskade revealed that he would be officially releasing a fourth version sometime "very soon."
Kaskade released the long-awaited collaboration today with an official music video.
“[Version 4] is very very close to version 3. I had some other things I wanted to tweak on it, so I fixed it up got it all done,” Kaskade said in the previous interview with Revolt TV.
Listen and watch below and let us know if you think it was worth the wait. "Beneath With Me Feat. Skylar Grey" is available to stream and download on Kaskade's website.
"Always amazing to collaborate with friends. This project has been a long time coming, but worth the wait..."
