Play 90 second soundbite of 'Vanishing Point' @ 'CD quality'
Seven Deadmau5 'solo' works and three collaborations with chum Melleefresh; ten works of classy and classic, electro experimentalism aimed squarely at the dance-club scene. Much to sample, much to admire, much to motivate! Deadmau5's pulsing beats are under-shot with deep electro meanderings of robustly structured hypnotic grooves. Cool and nicely cosseting, never obtuse, angular or spiky, dynamics slip through the industrious percussive loops to create an atmosphere that's chilled rather than invasive - moody not aggressive, soft-edged not angry!
Deadmau5's electro outpourings are groove-laden and gentle juxtapositions of electronic subtlety and compositional finesse. Targeting the soul rather than the head, Deadmau5 gives you music that's up-lifting but not heady, sensual but not blatantly sexy. His hypnotic repetitions slip easily into your psyche without detriment or harm to your nervous system - the end result is every bit as stimulating and captivating as the more forceful offerings dished out by many of his contemporaries.
'Deadmau5 At Play' by Deadmau5 is gently persuasive electro-house for the discerning ear - deftly 'orchestral' yet scintillatingly catchy and a must-hear work for late-night party-freaks to wind down to.
