Well it looks like Joel Zimmerman, aka Deadmau5 has still been doing what he does best even though he has been on tour. Deadmau5 is easily one of the best music producers in the EDM genre, playing a large roll with the expansion of the music. Released today on his soundcloud and showed to me by my friend Jared and Deadmau5 enthusiast, “Cthulhu Dreams” is dark and heavy at the same time. This is obviously a sequel to his previous song “Cthulhu Sleeps” which was released on his 4X4=12 album. Pieces from this such as the buildup are identifiable in the new ‘Cthulhu2″. Although this song is still good, I personally am not fully convinced that this is the final version. My reasoning which was also brought to my attention by the same friend is this: first off, Deadmau5 has been on tour so he hasn’t been in his studio. However, with that being said this song shows how musically gifted he actually is because it could be argued that this song was composed solely on a computer or in a studio not of his own. My second belief kind of feeds off of my first. Because he hasn’t been in his personal studio, I think that it lacks an essential part that when added, will put this song over the top. I believe that it is missing a little extra bass or specific chord after the drop. When or if this does come, the song will be another one of Deadmau5′s greats and will be shared by us to you. Lastly, the title Cthulhu2 doesn’t fit with Deadmau5′s style. After all he is known to make sequels to his previous songs that feed off each other. However with this all being said, I could be wrong; he is one of the best, if not the best DJ ever while I am just an avid follower and enthusiast.
On a side note, the mayor of Las Vegas Carolyn Goodman, officially proclaimed Jan 2nd in Las Vegas ‘Deadmau5 Day”. If Deadmau5 keeps this up, he may have more than one day named after him.
