At the beginning of his second-to-last BBC Radio 1 show last weekend, Deadmau5 promised us just one thing: “Tonight’s all about as much good music as we can cram in.”
And yep, he definitely delivered. The Canadian producer lay down two hours of wall-to-wall techno crushers, featuring tracks from Len Faki, Nic Fanciulli, Matador, Frost, and Dubfire. Noticeably absent were any ID’s from his techno alias Testpilot — but then again, he did gift us with a entire mix of that earlier this year. Listen to the mix below.
The man himself will be in the country later this month to play Sensation and Creamfields festivals in Sydney and Melbourne, alongside acts like Oliver Heldens, Fedde Le Grand, and Showtek.
There’s a good chance we’ll be hearing some new music from him when he’s here too, as he’s recently taken to dropping unreleased edits into his sets. He also recently let slip that after the Australian tour wraps up he’ll be knuckling down in his monster studio to record a new album, the followup to 2016’s W:/2016ALBUM/.
