A Discussion with Deadmau5 Fans
Earlier tonight, I downloaded the new Deadmau5 album 4x4=12 with the intention of writing a humorously negative review, but it had other ideas. Instead, I'm left rather confused, as it sounded so incredibly generic/stock/rote/whatever you want to say that I have absolutely no other thoughts on it. It had a four-to-the-floor beat, synths, and dubsteppy bassline, all of which are regular inclusions in this style of house in 2010. So, I have to turn to the fans of the artist and ask: please, tell me what makes Deadmau5 unique. What are you hearing here that makes you want to listen to him, rather than another artist in the genre?
