Last night, Deadmau5 took over XS Nightclub at Encore Las Vegas to celebrate the release of his latest single, “The Veldt,” which debuted on iTunes yesterday. Nearly 6,000 fans turned out on a Sunday night to join in the party and watch the electronic music phenomenon rock the stage. Starting his set promptly at 1 a.m., he warmed up the crowd with favorite tracks and some new samplings before giving his fans what they wanted, a taste of “The Veldt” around 1:30 am. Glow sticks waving, fists pumping and hands clapping high above the dance floor, the response was intense as it proved this will be a new favorite among deadmau5’s repertoire.
Mau5trap/Parlophone will release deadmau5’s “The Veldt” on June 25. The electronic dance music titan is an artist that is constantly looking for innovative ways to push his craft forward. With this release he’s set another yardstick of what it is to be an artist in this socially networked age.
He will return to his residency at XS Nightclub over Memorial Day weekend on Sunday, May 27.
