Nostalgia Drive

As much as he might revel in divisive behavior, Deadmau5 gives airtime to some exceptional young producers via his mau5trap label, and the lead record from its recent 'Game Over EP' is one of the best, most exciting big-room offerings we’ve heard all year. Opening on a low drone that gradually expands into a monumental breakdown, the drop of ‘Nostalgia Drive’ welcomes in a brittle, noisy hook that locks into an equally razor-sharp groove for prodigious dancefloor impact. Alongside some particularly good sound design, No Mana wisely avoids the bigroom clichés in favor of a tougher, noisier approach that has deservedly turned heads.
