Deadmau5 and his enormous mouse head return with The Veldt, the first in an upcoming series of EPs from the Canadian DJ/producer. Lead single "The Veldt," inspired by the recently deceased sci-fi author Ray Bradbury, is an epic eight-minute journey that partners Deadmau5's ecstatic production with Chris James' smooth, throaty vocals. On "Failbait," Deadmau5 teams with blunt-friendly rap veterans Cypress Hill for a banging track that steps away from EDM and firmly thumps into hip-hop territory. 

The Veldt EP will be released on June 25th. You can preorder on iTunes and get your first listen above.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
