It truly amazes me how we discover talent these days. Whether it is from going to a local venue, finding struggling artists and bringing them to fame, or using the incredible forms of social media to instantly find undiscovered talent, there's always a story behind it. So, with that being said, we've heard the backstory behind Chris James' stunning vocals on deadmau5's "The Veldt" from back in 2012. "The Veldt" was inspired by the 1950 short story of the same name by Ray Bradbury. The song was initially created during a 22-hour live streaming session in March 2012. The following day, Joel found Chris James via Twitter, who created his own vocal rendition of the song. Joel was impressed with James' vocals, particularly with the lyrical references to the Ray Bradbury story. Now while many of you might have already watched this from back in March of 2012, it's always amazing to see how little things like submissions can go a long way. But, for those of you who haven't watched it, enjoy!
