Click to listen to Deadmau5's 'The Veldt EP'

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.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
