Globally acclaimed electronic music producer and musician deadmau5 has revealed today the official track listing for while(1<2), his first ever double disc album – the one he feels to truly be his first proper body of work – set for digital release on June 17th, with the physical & streaming release on June 23rd on mau5trap/Virgin EMI Records. Prior to the launch of the album, deadmau5, an avid race enthusiast, will participate in the Gumball 3000 Rally Miami To Ibiza from 4th-11th June.
The 25 tracks featured on while(1<2) were meticulously re-edited, polished and pieced together into two continuous mixes for the largest album he’s ever put together. From the double album’s opening track ‘Avaritia’, available to download instantly upon pre-ordering the album, which opens the collection with gentle nautical sounds before bringing fans into a rising arena-level soundscape, to exploratory club tracks like ‘My Pet Coelacanth’, ‘while(1<2)’ takes listeners on a journey through deadmau5’s extensive sonic repertoire. Other highlights on while(1<2) include deadmau5’s remixes of How To Destroy Angeles’ ‘Ice Age’ and Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Survivalism’. Beyond ‘Avaritia’, fans can also look forward to more album tracks being offered in the weeks leading up to the album’s release.
deadmau5 is also particularly excited for his drive on the entire run of the 15th annual Gumball 3000 Rally from Miami to Ibiza before the release of while1<2. Joining him as his co-pilot is Tory Belleci of Discovery Channel’s MythBusters, in what will be an adventure of a lifetime. From the sunshine and parties of Miami, deadmau5 will first cruise through the state of Florida towards Georgia into Atlanta. New York then provides the next stopover where all 120 supercars in the rally will be loaded onto cargo planes and flown over the Atlantic to Scotland with deadmau5 and other Gumballers, which include stars from a range of industries, including David Hasselhoff, EVE, Tony Hawk, Meek Mill, Trinidad Jame$, Fast N Loud’s Richard Rawlings, DJ Drama, Tinie Tempah, Tory Belleci, 13th Witness, Dizzee Rascal, Bun B, JAWS, Stevie Williams and Nigel Sylvester, all of whom will follow on private jets.
Leaving skyscrapers behind for lochs and the highlands, deadmau5 will roar through Scotland before heading south to the home of Gumball, London. From there it’s across the channel to Paris, through France and Spain to the stunning city of Barcelona. The home stretch will be just a short drive and ferry ride to the finish line in Ibiza, ready for an explosive finale celebration weekend. During the ride from Miami to Ibiza which spans two continents, five countries, 3,000 miles and seven days, deadmau5 will preview tracks from while(1<2), share on the road live streams and release limited edition content, as well as be joined by special guests throughout his journey.
