deadmau5' label mau5trap has released today the third installment of its mau5ville series, a collection of fresh music and remixes from him and other artists. deadmau5 A.K.A, Joel Zimmerman is proving to be the king of multi-genre EPs.
Among its 10 tracks, mau5ville: level 3 contains two new deadmau5 productions "Polyphobia" and "Glivch." Another feature is "Are You Not Afraid," a new collab with mau5trap artist U.K. rapper Shotty Horroh, supported with remixes by J. Worra and C.O.Z.
The collaboration between Scene of Action and Zimmerman is a beautiful standout. "Hurricane" is a melodic break from the heavy tracklist, with enchanting melancholic vocals. Like Zimmerman, Scene of Action is a musician with a heavy following on Twitch. The two connected on the platform and now mau5trap brings the track to the masses on level 3 with remixes by Mark Mackenzie and OFFAIAH.
To close out the EP, up-and-coming mau5trap firebrand No Mana adds to the eclectic mix "Quests with Time Limits" and C.O.Z. offers "Over."
mau5ville: level 3 follows level 1 and level 2 which were released in 2018. From level 1 came "Monophobia" featuring Rob Swire, deadmau5' most successful radio track to date. Currently sitting at 8.5 million Spotify streams, the song has received support from many of the U.S.' major dance radio stations including KNHC (Seattle), WZFL (Miami), SiriusXM and Evolution where it was the channel's #1 most played track.
level 2 features "Drama Free" featuring Lights. In the spirit of continuity, deadmau5 teamed up again for its video with special effects mastermind Nick DenBoer who worked with him on "Monophobia." The oddball characters from the epic house party in "Monophobia" are back for a clip featuring a special performance with Lights.
