It's Our Future - A DeadMau5 MegaMix

First of all, Happy New Year to all my blogger friends, frequent visitors, and lurkers alike. Hope all of you have a more fruitful and prosperous year ahead.

I'm kicking off the year with an excellent megamix from Deadmau5, which I did a few weeks back. He is currently my fave in the minimal/progressive house scene and I know will make it big this year.

I first heard and saw his video posted on YouTube mixing some original stuff using the Xone 3D MIDI mixer and Ableton Live software and that really blew my head off! He was really amazing. Here's the clip of that vid... DeadMau5 vs. Xone 3D .

Noticeable is the absence of the basic turntable/mixer combo on his setup, as he demonstrates the future of DJ'ing and with the growing number of Superstar DJs like Paul Van Dyk, Sasha, Kevin Saunderson, Ritchie Hawtin ditching the basic vinyl/turntable set-up and shifting to digital format with the use of MIDI controllers and DJ software, there is a bright future that lies ahead for bedroom digital DJs making it big.
As quoted from Adam from his Outrageous House Music blog, "... that if there was the Oscars for dance music, this guy would certainly win as Best Newcomer."

Now for the tracklist, which contains his originals and remixes:

1) Jaded (Original Mix)
2) Secondary Complications (Original Mix)

3) Toca Me - Fragma (Deadmau5 Remix)
4) Teaser - Cirez D (Deadmau5 Remix)
5) Sex, Lies, Audiotape (Redux Mix)
6) Finished Symphony - Hybrid (Deadmau5 Remix)
7) Community Funk (Deadmau5 Remix)
8) Lukabrazi is Dead (Original Mix)
9) Everything Before (Original Mix)
10) Nufunk - Nubreed (Deadmau5 Remix)
11) It's Our Future - Young Rebels (Deadmau5 Remix)
12) Dirty Sexy Club Music - Filter Freq (Deadmau5 Remix)

13) Moonlight Berlin (Scen Mash-Up) - Deadmau5 vs. Fonzerelli
14) Super Skunk - Noir (Deadmau5 Remix)
15) Not Exactly Voices - Deadmau5 vs. The Police (Dumb Dan Edit)
16) The Reward Is Cheese - Deadmau5 vs. Jelo

Enjoy and hoping for a MORE MIXED UP year ahead!!! Special shoutout goes to DJ Chronic and Adam for some of the tracks I'ved used in this compilation.

I like the song selection... but in professional opinion you use way too many phaser/flange effects in your mixing...

Thanks for the honest opinion bro. Appreciate it.

track #13 is a track that I did... I would appreciate it if you were to give me credit.

ei djscen,

first, thanks for droppin' by mate.

anyway, as you can see, i always indicate the full title, name of the remix artists and the artists themselves for my tracklists to acknowledge and give credit to everyone responsible for the tracks that i use for my mix sets, so perhaps, i just wasn't able to put in the complete details or made an error.

for track #13, i've placed in deadmau5 vs. fonzerelli, so i assume you're fonzerelli? please notify me once more so that i can make the necessary changes to the description of the track if you want it changed to djscen.

once again, thanks for droppin' by.


djscen said...

ah, thanks for the quick reply...

the track should be titled "Deadmau5 vs. Fonzerelli - Moonlight Berlin (Scen Mash-Up)"

the beatmeister said...

please check it again..
