  • Why Sofi Doesn't Need A Ladder

    15 Dec 2010, 07:52 by oruwu

    deadmau5's latest album 4x4=12 was hotly anticipated for several months, but at release of the track list, my excitement dwindled. The problem I find is that it is simply a compilation album, since I have already scrobbled half the album, and some songs even more than a year earlier (The earliest of which was deadmau5 - Everything Before first scrobbled in April of 2009).

    My biggest complaint with the album, however, are the vocals. deadmau5 has had several brilliant vocal tracks, but none of these do it for me. Sofi Needs A Ladder which almost completely ruins You need a ladder and dropped all the Zelda tribute clips (albeit this could be because of copyright) is my peak concern, but I also don't know why Joel thought Raise Your Weapon would be a better use of his Dub5tepthingie project. It just doesn't fit.

    Joel was quoted saying "To do an album, I'd need to take six months off. But the touring takes up all my time." We, the fans, love the touring…

  • Deadmau5 – Random Album Title - Feb 09

    26 Mar 2009, 00:47 by richymtfc_home

    I did at one point lose the understanding of buying “dance” artist albums, but instead to buy the tunes, but then I heard Diy when it came out and suddenly it all made sense again so they are starting to filter back in and in fact two were in this months purchase order.
    I’ve known about Deadmau5s productions for quite a while. Looking back probably from 2004 when .Not Exactly was included in a Jody Wisternoff – Way Out There free download mix (hybridized.org). I have to admit I saw the name before I heard it pronounced, and always pronounce it “dead mau five”, rather than “dead mouse” as it should be (for those that don’t know, he djs as a mouse. Check out vids on youtube), but do I care?. It really took off when I heard Jaded in a Dynamix (goes by the name of psysex in last.fm) mix (psysex user profile). What a tune it is. Unfortunately Jaded doesn’t seem to be on any album. Random Album Title is Deadmau5s 3rd artist album, which shocked me.
