On Friday, he launched an entirely new album totally for free. Called stuff i used to do, the album is a compilation of previous works. Supposedly, it’s going to be free to download until deadmau5 decides to delete the link. In other words, you’ll want to get your copy as soon as possible here.
Following that release, the producer launched a new video showing off his infamous cube stage. Lately, he’s been working on creating Cube 2.1, a new and improved version of his old tour set-up.
The video delves behind the scenes into creating Cube 2.1. Deadmau5 teamed up with TAIT, a company that creates and designs equipment for live gigs. TAIT worked with deadmau5 previously when he had residency at Hakkasan. They’ve also created stage shows for the Olympics, Oscars, VMAs, Lady Gaga, U2 and Muse, to name a few.
That means TAIT Chief Creative Officer Adam Davis’ statements about the Cube’s coolness shouldn’t be taken lightly. He’s described it as “the newest, coolest DJ stand/machine we’ve ever built.”
Watch the footage of Cube 2.1 and see for yourself:
Not bad, right? The design, though familiar, overall looks pretty sick. There are some really cool patterns and displays going on, too, that practically make Cube 2.1 look alive. If it starts to gain sentience, we might have something to worry about.
Then again, knowing deadmau5 he’d have some sort of plot up his sleeve to take over the world using the powers of house music and his AI cube. So maybe that wouldn’t be a horrible outcome after all.
