Cthulhu Twerks: Deadmau5 releases experimental trap tracks

March 12, 2016 -

The closest Deadmau5 has come to trap is passing a Crizzly set on his way to the main stage. So for most of us, it came as a bit surprising when the journeyman producer announced a decision to try his hand at the genre. In a handful of short releases via his SoundCloud page, Mau5 has deviated from his recent progressive house tracks. With names like 'CthulhuTwerks' and 'yoloswagbae', it seemed like Joel might be trolling us once more. Aside from the farm animal samples, it's pretty clear he was dead serious.

Each short track shows off Mau5 ability to apply his own production techniques to different genres. While you won't hear booming 808's, each song successfully fuses trap snares with the craftful synths we've come to expect. Throw in some distorted bass reminiscent of 2010's "One Trick Pony" and the minimal sound really begins to stand out. It may not be the turn up festival trap of Yellow Claw, but that's a good thing; not a second of this limited showing sounds forced. While an entirely experimental trap album might be a longshot, you can't blame us for wanting to hear a bit more.
