deadmau5 Returns with "The Veldt" Featuring Chris James on Ultra Music

Electronic music producer deadmau5 premiered his brand new single “The Veldt” featuring Chris James (Ultra Music) on SiriusXM 51/BPM's Pre Party with Kramer at 9PM EST tonight, Friday, April 20 on broadcast and at The single will be available May 6, with THE VELDT EP releasing June 25.

The Canadian, platinum-selling, independent artist has proven that social networks can provide the necessary tools for bringing a track from concept to completion. During a 22-hour live-streaming session in March, deadmau5 created a new track titled “The Veldt” inspired by a short sci-fi story written by Ray Bradbury. deadmau5 subsequently uploaded the song to his FML SoundCloud page for his fans and the magic of the world wide web took hold overnight. The following day, he found numerous tweets about one vocal version a fan posted to SoundCloud. All airing on his live stream, deadmau5 listened to the version vocalist Chris James created, contacted Chris live to work on the track, and rang his manager immediately to set up an official collaboration.

“He righteously did his homework, and came up with just a few bang on verses that completely compliment the story and the mood, which is all I ever want from a song that contained lyrical content,” says deadmau5 of Chris James.  “Can’t give him props enough.”

THE VELDT EP releasing June 25 will contain the lead single “The Veldt” featuring Chris James, as well as the new track “Failbait”featuring hip-hop icons Cypress Hill.  This is the first in a series of EPs from deadmau5 to be released over the coming months.

This track was crazy! Deadmau5 just never lets me down :D I just started making my own music (with Dr Drum) and his stuff is really inspiring. I just hope he keeps up the insane work.
