deadmau5 and Astralwerks are tapping into their histories of backing electronic music and looking forward to working together to release not only new deadmau5 recordings, but the recordings from his own Mau5trap Recordings imprint.
To kick it off, they'll release We Are Friends Vol. 2 on Nov. 12. The compilation will include the deadmau5 songs "Your Ad Here" and "Suckfest9001," alongside Mau5trap artists like BSOD and Eekkoo. "So, it's now official... Yep, we've teamed up with our friends at Astralwerks! It's done, and this shit is happening! Big plans are in motion people. BIG," said deadmau5.

“It’s sort of an incubator label, if you will, within the Astralwerks wheelhouse. If something starts to bubble, we can upstream it. Conversely, if we can indentify something that we think makes great sense for Joel, then we can send stuff to him and have him percolate it on his side,” said Glenn Mendlinger when speaking to Billboard.
