Heaven Made Match: Deadmau5 v Gerard Way

30 Oct

Deadmau5: the greatest – in my opinion – producer of dance music of the last decade and art-house rock god poster boy Gerard Way! I couldn’t believe it when I read they’d made a record together; it seemed an impossible combination. But on reflection not so unlikely. Hasn’t Gerard always been secretly longing to make a proper dance record? “Sharpest Lives” and more recently, “Planetary Go!” being the MCR boy’s first fantabulous, off kilter, forays into genre. Isn’t Deadmau5  always on the lookout for some super cool/visionary vocalist to set off the brilliance of his titanic, atmospheric genre evading, music – to -lose -your -head -to?

“Professional Griefers” is thrilling stuff indeed. Recommended play: some ear splitting volume. Dance track of the year so far, possibly of the century.
