Joel Zimmerman, better known as deadmau5, is back with new material, and it sounds splendid to our ears. Chris James’ vocals lace the track entitled “The Veldt” (Ultra Records) that features a beautiful chord progression and catchy chorus in “the world that the children made…here”. The track has not yet been released, but deadmau5 shared it on his YouTube for fans to have access in a high quality version rather than fish around the web ripping radio shows plays and what not.

The radio edit is due out May 6, while the EP release is not slated until June 25 and will also feature the new track “Failbait” featuring hip-hop icons Cypress Hill. This is the first in a series of EPs from deadmau5 to e released over the coming months so get excited!

“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.”

Little is known about this mysterious Chris James other than he’s good behind a camera too (see video below) and part of the mau5trap crew now…The inspiring story goes as follows: During a 22-hour live-streaming session in March, deadmau5 created a new track “The Veldt” inspired by a short sci-fi story written by Ray Bradbury. Subsequently, deadmau5 uploaded the song to his SoundCloud, and the following day he found numerous tweets about one vocal version a fan posted. He listened to the version vocalist Chris James created, contacted Chris live to work on the track during the live stream and rang his manager immediately to set up an official collaboration. The rest is history, but deadmau5 proved that social media can provide the necessary tools for bringing a track from concept to completion. Nifty.

Have a listen to the dreamy, synthy addendum to deadmau5′s collection:

The Mau5trap crew found some time to hit the lake for some fun in Miami, you can check it out here:

If you’re wondering the song in the video is Tycho “Dictaphone’s Lament” and it’s friggin awesome, as is the rest of their material.
