Deadmau5 promised to release a 20-strong collection of old and new tracks via iTunes following the release of his new full-length 'W:/2016ALBUM/' last month (2nd December).
The mau5trap boss subsequently revealed further details of the material in a Twitter post in December, which stated it will “hopefully” be released in February 2017 and will feature remastered tracks dating from 1998 to 2007.
Over the weekend, Deadmau5 confirmed that the album will be released next month, tweeting what is presumed to be the artwork for ‘Stuff I Used To Do’ along with the caption “coming Feb”. You can see the full tweet below.
The Canadian producer, otherwise known as Joel Zimmerman, originally teased the forthcoming “remastered” compilation during an eight-hour web stream with fans.
Zimmerman kicked off his brand-new 2017 BBC Radio 1 Residency last week (Thursday 5th January) with a two-hour mix of tech-house and techno, alongside a slew of Deadmau5 productions including the Com Truise remix of his prog-house anthem ‘Strobe’.
The Canadian also offered to fly an aspiring artist called BoMason to the mau5trap studios to co-produce his first album, if he can hit one million plays on his SoundCloud page.
