Unreleased Deadmau5 Song Surfaces on Internet

Buzz 12:42PM EDT

It is always a good day when you hear some new deadmau5. It is even more special when that track is unreleased and may never see the light of day. Before he opened the doors on his new suckscription — subscription — service, he used to host live Ustream events where he would show how he was making music, interact with fans and sometimes play new material. This track is one of those to emerge from those many late-night Ustream sessions driven by cigarettes and Coca-Cola. Reminiscent of his new tune "Pets" from his latest studio album "while 1<2," deadmau5 creates a soothing, ambient soundscape that reminds us why we love the Canadian producer's music. It is speculated that this track could be an early version of "Pets" or could have become redundant once the time came to finalize the tracklist for the album. Deadmau5 shared the song on his Twitter, acknowledging the unreleased track and giving his fans the opportunity to listen, via "In the Mix." There have been plenty of other unreleased tracks teased by deadmau5 via his Ustream sessions and his subscription service, like "Bleed" and "HR Cephai." Do not expect that trend to change, as he is back home for the remainder of 2014 and gearing up for a massive Entropy world tour in 2015.READ MORE

Krewella Coachella 2014

Krewella File Counterclaim, To Speak Out at 5 p.m. PST; deadmau5 Responds

Buzz 14:35PM EDT

After breaking their silence on Facebook with a cryptic message telling their fans to "Say Goodbye," Krewella have brought the fight back to the courtroom with a lawsuit of their own against Kris Trindl, the former third member of the group. Jahan Yousaf and Yasmine Yousaf, the sister duo who remain in Krewella, have alleged in their counterclaim that Trindl's allegations are baseless and look to show he was not integral to the group, prompting deadmau5 to respond. First reported by "The Hollywood Reporter," the claims filed in Los Angeles court detail close to two years of alleged negligent behavior that look to paint him as someone unable and unwilling to do the work required for Krewella. The 22-page court document recounts a period overt the past two years where Trindl was largely absent from studio sessions and unable to DJ because he was either too intoxicated or simply had not learned how to. As the court documents state, "While on stage, Kris would generally stand to the side of Jahan and Yasmine and pump his arms, while pretending to DJ; he was onstage primarily for the sake of image. Because Kris did not know how to DJ, he only had two effect buttons." The counterclaim also alleges that Trindl, producer for the group, actually did little producing on their artist album "Get Wet" and only wholly contributed to one song, though he received producing credits on all the tracks. The two lawsuits agree on the fact that Trindl had a substance abuse problem, but the Yousaf sisters tell a different story with how he received help. The counterclaim portrays him as uncooperative with attempts by Jahan and Yasmine to give him help with his alcohol addiction. The sisters will be speaking out today at 5 p.m. PST to give their side of the story during a live stream event on Twitch. In addition to the counterclaim filed in L.A. court, we will see what they have to say on the lawsuit, giving the situation a more human touch. They also may comment on upcoming releases and give some clarity to their "Say Goodbye" photo. Deadmau5, who has been quite vocal about this whole situation, took to his favorite medium of communication — Twitter — to share his thoughts on the situation.READ MORE

The newfound partnership between kings of the progressive deadmau5 and Eric Prydz took a new step forward this past weekend. At Gary Richard's Hard Day of the Dead, the two hosted their own stage with a selection of hand-picked artists and then closed out the night with a rare, two-hour, back-to-back set.

Taking place at the Pomona Fairplex over Halloween weekend — Saturday, Nov. 1, and Sunday, Nov. 2 — Prydz and deadmau5 hosted their own Mau5ville stage. The name "Mau5ville" is the convenient combination of their two labels: "Mau5trap" for deadmau5 and "Mouseville" for Prydz. They brought on some friends, including Eekkoo, Jeremy Olander, Alesia and the mysterious and much-hyped ZHU with them Saturday.READ MORE
