Come one, come all to the glitchy gates of mau5ville. Host deadmau5 welcomes everyone back to his little corner of the world with the third installment of his mau5ville EP series. mau5ville: Level 3 features new tunes from the head honcho himself as well as remixes and originals by mau5ville residents No Mana, C.O.Z., Mark Mackenzie, J. Worra and OFFAIAH.
It opens with “Polyphobia,” a wonky deadmau5 original featuring the same wistful key melody from “Monophobia.” Next is a tinkering, plucky bit of electronic fun called “Glivch,” followed by the triumphant return of deadmau5′ take on hip-hop featuring his favorite rap collaborator, Shotty Horroh. It’s called “Are You Not Afraid,” and it comes with a raw and wild remix from J. Worra, as well as a house rinse from C.O.Z.
Next is “Hurricane,” a minimal piano ballad featuring the angelic vocals of Scene of Action. Mark Mackenzie gives that one a solid, progressive, four-on-the-floor remix, while OFFAIAH turns up the traditional house vibes. No Mana showcases his skills on the solo original “Quest With Time Limits,” and the EP wraps with the aptly-titled “Over” from C.O.Z.
The 10-track collection is sure to lift your spirits, and it makes killer background music for your workday. It’s out now on mau5ville, naturally. Listen to mau5ville: Level 3 below.
