A review of the deadmau5 song “Snowcone”.

 

deadMau5 is known to stand in a league of his own when it comes to electronic music producers and performers. Although his sound is largely appealing to the catchier side of EDM, this talented artist isn't afraid to let a wider set of musical influences to inspire and affect his sound.


His recently released single, “Snowcone” is a textural song with lush ambience and atmospheric drones that are heavily influenced  by artists the likes of Boards of Canada, Jon Hopkins or Sigur Ròs, while retaining the artist's signature blend of sound and catchy grooves. The track is relaxing and embracing, with very deep sonic layers interplaying with hip-hop inspired beats.

 

The artist's first single in about 2 years is both a return to form and a peek into new musical horizons for deadmau5, whose iconic image still remains one of the most recognizable fixtures within the electronic music scene today.


The Canadian producer set out to blend in the shimmer of lead synths with the retro feel of ambient pads, focusing on building an intricate sonic plot without compromising the power and intricacy of the beats that are often cited as one of the most recognizable elements of his sound.
