Deadmau5 Goes Techno With Hawtin Under New Alias; Also Announces London Gig

Deadmau5 Goes Techno With Hawtin Under New Alias; Also Announces London Gig

Yesterday turned into quite a day for deadmau5 and, this time, it had nothing to do with any Twitter outbursts. The outspoken mousehead wearing artist has joined Richie Hawtin's Plus 8 label and, while following his passion for techno, will be releasing a track under the alias of “testpilot”. The track, called 'Sunspot (White Space Conflict)', follows a more minimal sound and steers clear of the usual production direction deadmau5 is known for. 

While techno purists around the world spat out their cereal at the news, Hawtin is more than confident that Deadmau5 was the right person for the job of bringing the label back to the forefront of the scene after a two year hiatus.

He said: "It’s been nearly two years since the last Plus 8 record, but it seemed fitting that this record in particular, made by another skinny white kid from Canada, became part of the label’s collection and history."

Have a listen to the track and let us know what you think.




In other deadmau5 news, it was confirmed yesterday that he will returning to London this summer for his first appearance in the UK capital in two years. His last memorable appearance was when he sold out Earls Court in 2010 as the first  electronic music artist  to play an event there.

Here's the full DVD of that event to get you in the mood!




This time round, he’ll bring with him his famous live show which promises to top anything ever seen in the capital before. Follow the jump for ticket info:
