Deadmau5 has released a 7 song EP appropriately titled 7 through SoundCloud and YouTube on the same day that he's quit twitter.
The EP is mainly solo piano, with some other synth string sounds to add harmony and texture. This is far from any type of clubbing party music that Deadmau5 has released in the past. It sounds jazzy and cinematic in its moodiness. The 7 songs are named in latin, reflecting the 7 deadly sins:
In a statement on his Tumblr page, Deadmau5 had this to say:
twitter and the like.
I’m no longer going to be managing my own twitter account for “deadmau5”. I’m going to let management deal with that account. My reasons are my own, not because of something i said, not because of this hilarious I.R.A. vs “ira” craic, not because of lady gaga’s infinite legions of brain dead fans. but as i said… reasons of my own.
Perhaps ill return to that in world as some reincarnation of sort, but for now, that’s off the table for me. I’ll continue to upload new music to my soundcloud, and the twitter account will point you in the right direction for the most recent happenings… but enough’s enough with living on twitter. Time to at least start by living in the studio making music without having to be force-fed stupid shit that annoys me, when all i’m trying to do is connect with fans.
as for the fans, thanks for all your continued support and understanding of my decision to personally unplug myself from the very thing that’s making me upset. As i’ve mentioned, the account will remain alive, and *my team* (yeah i went there) will keep you just as updated on the ongoings with new music and shit that actually matters.
To leave you with some good news, my new Tricaster arrives today. SO perhaps ill be streaming video with direct audio a lot more often.
thanks for having my back on this one.
