deadmau5‘s house-driven label hau5trap has officially arrived with its first release — a brand new single from dance music tastemaker Tommy Trash and singer/songwriter Daisy Guttridge. hau5trap 0001, “Hiiigh,” introduces the label and sets the tone of “textural, groove driven, melodic sounds” listeners can expect. Leading by example, Tommy Trash carves out a gorgeous soundscape as he and Daisy prove once again they have their collaborative craft down to a science. The vocals and production never compete, perfectly existing together in deep, hypnotic space.
Tommy Trash shares of the release:
Two years ago I took some time out to recharge and refocus my life. I had been through some crazy times, and was dealing with some stuff that had really screwed with my mojo. I ended up heading to South America to do some Ayahuasca ceremonies. Life changing would be an understatement, to say the least. Aya really opened up my perception to a wider state of being and helped me refocus my life. ‘Hiiigh’ is a reflection of that moment in time — an ode to the process of rediscovery.
Tommy Trash and deadmau5 go hand in hand: Tommy’s remix of “The Veldt” was nominated for Best Remix at the 55th Grammy Awards (2012), and is still played out in deadmau5 sets. The pair also recently reunited for Tommy’s remix of deadmau5 and Kiesza’s “Bridged By A Lightwave.”
Tommy and Daisy previously teamed up on “Let Me Go” and “Oxygen,” both collaborations with i_o which released in 2019 and 2017, respectively. Also, on Tommy’s solo original “Sinners.”
