This was an interesting exercise that deadmau5 went through last night. Seemingly on a whim, he took "four Nexus presets, four Vengeance samples, a brickwall limiter, and thirty minutes" and craft a troll of a big room track. The surprising part? It's possibly the best big room EDM track we've heard in a while. It contains everything that'd make it the red-headed stepchild of "Animals," but it has a certain quality about it. It lacks that "I've heard this so many times already" vibe about it. Something about deadmau5; dude must go on these kinds of excursions every now and again, sharpening his production chops. If you're signed up for live.deadmau5.com, you can get this tune for free. Stream it in full down below.
