Being that deadmau5 is the sort of artist who can send ripples through the blogosphere simply by uploading a variation in production to his SoundCloud account, a full-on remix of what many would consider his magnum opus is bound to garner some attention. Last week the progressive house provocateur released MAU50100: STROBE REMIX - which featured rerubs of the track by the likes of Feed Me, ATTLAS and Lane 8 - and this past weekend he followed it up with a free download of his own "ebortS remix" of the single.
"ebortS," in case you haven't already noticed, is "Strobe" in reverse - and the remix itself is fittingly juxtapose to its celebrated source material. Only scarce hints of the original track's chord progression remain in the dissonant downtempo arrangement of the updated version.
What we'd really like to see, however, is another single from deadmau5' upcoming album. He recently revealed that it would arrive in November, but he'll almost certainly tease out another track or two from the upcoming effort in the weeks to follow.
