When the newest batch of artists from deadmau5' mau5trap imprint gather under one roof, one might assume there would be frat-boy antics and raucous dance music bouncing off the walls -- but that wasn't the case this time.

deadmau5 protégés Matt Lange, No Mana, BlackGummy, Monstergetdown and ATTLAS made a pit stop at The Patch House in Los Angeles back in August to give Billboard a behind-the-scenes look into their pad, and the boys kicked back for some quality family time, mau5trap-style. 

The Patch House offers touring artists the opportunity to stay at one of two locations -- in Brooklyn and L.A. -- and each house comes equipped with a recording studio, full kitchen and bedrooms, an easy living experience for musicians who are constantly on the road. 

Opting against ordering fast-food delivery, the boys are seated around the dinner table waiting for dinner to be served, courtesy of their fellow labelmate Attlas. Up until a year ago, ATTLAS kept his identity a mystery, but he revealed at The Patch House that he can throw down in the kitchen as easily as he can lay down melodic productions.

"OK, so the reason why I'm talking while stirring is because I'm making a gumbo for the guys tonight," the Toronto producer told Billboard in a clip for The Patch House. The mau5trap rookies kicked off their first ever Random Label Party, hosted by their imprint on Aug. 26, where all five producers performed their own sets to a packed warehouse.  

The mau5trap label has been home to a few of the top electronic artists, including Skrillex and Tommy Lee, and the imprint's newest signees are establishing themselves among their famous labelmates.

"It's really nice where we can all sit in the same room, which is so rare," Matt Lange says to the group.

"We all have busy schedules, man, we're writing, we're playing out," ATTLAS chimes in. "To kind of enjoy a meal, a salad and a couple drinks at a place like this, it's tough to beat, right?"
