Listen to a Preview of Deadmau5 and Kaskade’s New Collaboration with Skylar Grey
Deadmau5 has been rather busy lately. He recently posted a preview of his work-in progress collaboration with Grabbitz, titled “Blood For The Bloodgoat.” Labeled as #Goatstep, the track comes complete with a soothingly beautiful intro containing melodic strings accompanied by the vocals of Grabbitz. The song kicks into overdrive when the pulsing bassline and trance-y synths explode, bringing a sound reminiscent of classic Deadmau5 tracks like “Strobe” and “I Remember.”
Speaking of “I Remember,” the two artists responsible for the classic EDM anthem are coming together once again — that’s right, Kaskade and Deadmau5 have begun working on their collaboration, and we have now been presented with our first listen to the track. Titled “Beneath With Me,” the track also features vocals from pop artist Skylar Grey. According to Joel (Deadmau5) on the track’s Soundcloud page, it is “a song about a dead person singing to a not dead person to come be dead with them.”
The rumor of this collaboration began because of a Twitter exchange between Deadmau5 and Kaskade back in March. After a fan jokingly asked the two when a new track together would be coming, Deadmau5 responded saying, “Well Ryan?” Kaskade added that Miami was slowing him down. This suggested that the two had already agreed to work together once again. Now having heard the initial preview of their track, “Beneath With Me” will mark their first collaboration together since “I Remember.” Stay tuned for release information and an extended preview of the track to come soon.
