Amist all the twitter drama with Kanye, Deadmau5 has been working tirelessly to release single after single on his soundcloud. This has left many admiring fans impatient for his upcoming set at Ultra Miami 2016, where he will be headlining alongside many other celebrated artists including Kaskade and Afrojack.
Five days ago he revealed an exciting new track that weighed in at a massive nine minutes of pure temptation for the imagination. The single ‘4aware01' is a promising new WIP that provokes a powerful melodic, ambient feel. It initiates with a soothing trance-like feel that transitions perfectly into a familiar heavy kick. This is that infamous kick that gets your foot tapping and your mind racing in preparation for a drop that's yet to come. However, like most other WIP's, the track is just an instrumental tease for what could be revealed in a future set. Towards the end, the single mellows out and finishes by returning to the trance-like feel of the beginning.
This track left me reminiscing of a time when the only music within tangible reach was my mom's trance CD's. When Silver Bath by Plastic Boy used to echo off the tile floors of my basement, as I patiently awaited the arrival of melodic synths at [3:30] to close my eyes and lose myself.
Even just as a work in progress, songs like these remind me of why I love music so much. In a matter of minutes nostaliga replaced what began as a bitter morning for me, with heartwarming memories of my mom and I dancing.
I –love– that music can do that.
