Deadmau5 feat. MC Flipside - Hi Friend
Thu 9th Oct, 2008 Music Reviewsin
Deadmau5 has had a brilliant year. Scooping the pool at the Beatport Music Awards, remixing a stack of big name tunes, and having his tunes played all over the place by the most important people in the scene, he can easily claim to be one of the finest producers in dance music today.
He has released many great tracks, most memorably Faxing Berlin and Not Exactly, but for me Hi Friend is his finest work released to date. It’s a tune of great quality with the awesome and catchy line; “All systems go out on the floor, this is what you came here for”. It will definitely get your feet moving on the dancefloor, but wherever you are it’s a tune that sticks in your head and has a real happy feel to it.
The non vocal mix is also superb, as you get the true essence of the track and you can feel the electro beats go all through you body. It is a truly A-class track and the best dance song I’ve heard this year. No doubt there will be more quality coming our way from Deadmau5, and it’s got me very excited for his tour with Good Vibrations in February.
