deadmau5 has a new track and it is as cold and bleak as the Canadian winter. This track, created in the dark depths of that winter, was also likely influenced by another type of darkness. Depression. Zimmerman recently opened up about his struggle with depression, and this sparse song seems to be a musical manifestation of his mental state. While I love the return to this original deadmau5 vibe, I hope that Zimmerman gets well.
Here it is: “Snowcone”. This has been on repeat.
The recent single reminds me of some of his very early work which I have included below. Here are two of my favorites.
