Chris Lake is one of our favourite producers. Though, since the Markus Schossow incident we lost a huge amount of respect for Deadmau5, who would have done well to have simply kept quiet about the whole business, instead of managing single handedly to offend almost every DJ & Producer on the planet.Needless to say, much like we hate other successes who air a certain arrogance (think Chelsea FC, Didier Drogba, Apple Inc et al) you can’t really deny obvious talent and we do appreciate The Mau5. This is his second collaboration with Chris Lake, and is a more minimal, techy affair. It’s a good groove but not enough of a departure from previous tracks to really make us excited. If you look for the Michael Woods remix however, things get a bit more interesting, and the pops and squeaks actually lead to a decent drop into a more spine tingling groove. Good stuff…but not quite revolutionary. “i said” is out now on Mau5 Trap records.
