Deadmau5 continues his onslaught of music with a new production out titled ‘XYZ‘. We see its release on mau5trap. Mark your calendars because this track will appear on the upcoming We Are Friends Vol. 11 scheduled for release later this year.

Now, let’s talk about the track. Firstly, with a mysterious title, it can mean many things. And that’s what the song is about. It contains fast-tracking synths and hypnotizing beats. Secondly, you know it’s an instrumental–and a long one. As soon as you hit the first verse, the second one hits you with a change in notes and so forth. Feel the rhythm and groove. The fluidity of each beat is what Joel is known for. Lastly, subtle tweaks leave you wanting more and soon, you find yourself at the end of the nine-and-a-half-minute piece. This is the leading single from the upcoming We Are Friends Vol.11.
