i_o, "Ghost in the Machine"

Techno wizard Garrett Lockhart, aka I_o, has the scene up in arms, bouncing in dark club corners to his beautiful, aggressive noise. He's one of Mau5trap's brightest rising stars, and today, he gets his first official music video for the single "Ghost in the Machine."

The dark, fantastical clip was directed and edited by Deadmau5 and mau5trap's content director Leah Sems. It's a neon night mystery as one woman finds herself transported to a strange new world where I_o and creepy iconography await. It's the first official music video for the project.

“I'm super proud of the creativity that was delivered on a record that is very personal to me," the producer tells Billboard Dance. "Amazing to see what Leah could do in a 10 hour shoot.”

"Ghost In The Machine" is the latest single from his House of God EP, released on Mau5trap earlier this month. The producer will hit the road in support of label master deadmau5's CubeV3 tour throughout September, including a string of dates at the Los Angeles Hollywood Palladium and at Red Rocks in Colorado. He's also slated to take the main stage at Electric Zoo Sept. 1.
