In the digital streaming age, albums are whatever artists make of them. For his latest mau5ville series, deadmau5 sees releases as a combination of originals and remixes. It's like a series of EPs or a batch of singles released all at once that celebrates the label head honcho as well as his friends and collaborators, whether they be official members of the mau5trap family or not.
The series' second installment, Mau5ville: Level 2, is a nine-track offering with mostly deadmau5 material alongside star remixes and new ones from Gallya and Monstergetdown. It leads with "Drama Free," an atmospheric beat matched with melodic vocals from fellow Canadian Lights. The song is paired with a video that features the same strange, surreal animation as mau5ville: Level 1 single "Monophobia" featuring Rob Swire.
