Listen To Deadmau5’s 2019 Essential Mix With New testpilot Music

Deadmau5 went on BBC Radio 1 last night for his first solo Essential Mix since 2008. Over 10 years later, a lot has changed, both for deadmau5 personally and in the dance music world. For starters, Deadmau5 has a new alias to bring along for the ride: testpilot.

The entire first hour of the Essential Mix is dedicated to his testpilot side, focusing on more techno and house; he mixes in tracks from Nic Fanciulli, Pig & Dan, Cosmic Boys, and more with ease. He also played his unreleased testpilot tune “Fall” at the end of the hour. The second half is devoted to his classic deadmau5 music, mixing tracks like “Moar Ghosts N Stuff” with unreleased cuts like “A Seed,” “Saturn,” and “Coasted.”

Essential Mix excels at sending listeners on a vibrant and unique two-hour journey, and you can hear it all below.
