Deadmau5 drops a minimix full of the music on his next album

It’s only been two months since Deadmau5 dropped his last LP W:/2016ALBUM/, but dance music’s serial antagoniser is gearing up to do it all again this week.

On Friday, February 24 U.S. time (that’s early Saturday morning in Australia), Joel Zimmerman will share stuff i used to do, a remastered 20-track compilation of music he made between 1997 and 2008. Now ahead of the release, Joel’s label Mau5trap has shared a six-minute minimix of the tracks on the compilation, which includes vintage mau5 classics like Bored of Canada.

Deadmau5 has described stuff i used to do as his “little pet project,” so hopefully he feels better about it than his last body of work – last year Zimmerman admitted that he wasn’t exactly happy with W:/2016ALBUM/. “i don’t even like it. it was like… so fucking rushed / slapped together,” he told fans on Twitter. “this is seriously a love/hate thing happening here. But, a thing, nonetheless. and it’s good to be doing things.”
