Last month a story started flying around about deadmau5 calling out a fan on Twitter for a collaboration. This isn’t the first time he’s done that (see his Chris James collaboration on The Veldt) but what was interesting is that the fan wasn’t just an aspiring newcomer, it was Monstercat artist Grabbitz who, amidst making music for the new series of CSI and generally killing it with his Friends EP, had uploaded his own vocal version of deadmau5’s Silent Picture to his Soundcloud.
The two talented artists clearly move quickly and have already got to work. Last night the mau5trap boss shared a minute and a half teaser of what’s to come from this deadmau5 & Grabbitz fusion on his Soundcloud page. And it’s sounding pretty special.
Grabbitz’s vocals are as on-point as his production skills as he lays down heavy emotions over mau5’s spine-tingling synths before a bulbous bass and beat kicks in… And, as it stands right now, leaves us wanting more.
It’s been a great year for Grabbitz so far. And this heavyweight deadmau5 double-up compounds that fact even more. Find out more about Grabbitz in our recent interview.
