deadmau5's Seminal 'Strobe' Gets Feed Me Remix: Exclusive Premiere

Billboard

This is some cinematic sh-t, right here. We thought Feed Me's remix of deadmau5 favorite "Strobe" would be something harder and faster than the original perhaps, something with some monster teeth.

In that respect, we weren't let down, but we were also given so much more. It opens into a steady build that finds quick resolution in a funky, glitchy take on the well-known musical themes. The energy increases, and then we take a sudden turn, as if walking through a haunted hallway only to run head-first into a beautiful garden oasis.

The tune becomes soft and sentimental, absolutely breathtaking, a clever homage to the original track's own opening chords. The final third of the nine-minute remix picks up once again into a joyous, almost giddy refrain, and there you have it. You've just been on a downright emotional adventure, and you've been listening to a song you already know and love.

Feed Me's take is one of four "Strobe" remixes to be released Friday, Sept. 23, in honor of mau5trap's 100th release. The package includes interpretations from Lane 8, ATTLAS, and Com Truise, but really, this Feed Me version. Wow.
