Following lawsuit settlement, the first of deadmau5's old tracks appear on Spotify
Back in May, deadmau5 settled a lawsuit with his first label, Play Records. The lawsuit was settled amicably, allowing Play Records to retain rights to 'more than 100 original tracks, collaborations and remixes created by deadmau5 between 2006 and 2008.'
A recent post by mau5trap on Facebook, concerning deadmau5's new 'for lack of a better playlist' playlist, prompted fans to check deadmau5's account on Spotify.
What they saw was a new track, 'Desynchronized', that had come out on June 20. It didn't take much further research before fans learned that 'Desynchronized' had been on the internet since at least 2010. Looking up the track on Beatport revealed that the track has now been released on. you guessed it, Play Records.
From what fans can gather, it seems that they could finally be getting re-releases of some of deadmau5's oldest (and possibly lost) tracks from his previous label. This includes some old collaborations with Melleefresh, as well as one of his most iconic tracks, 'Faxing Berlin'.
It would behoove fans to keep a sharp eye on his Spotify account - deadmau5 neglected to mention the 'Desynchronized'

Downtempo don Steve Cobby's exclusive guest mix is a sunset ready classic in the making
For nearly 30 years now Kingston-upon-Hull based producer and DJ Steve Cobby's been releasing music that defies strict categorization. As happy to beaver away atsemi-ambient breakbeat as he is dubbed-out house, liquid jazz or sunrise-friendly rollers, he's, in essence, a one man industry, and an artist we should truly cherish and treasure.
Cobby's backstory takes in running his own labels Pork, Twentythree, Steel Tiger, and Declasse, globetrotting with downtempo giants Fila Brazillia, and being committed to pushing himself in any and every direction possible. Having fallen in love with 2015's absolutely exceptional Everliving LP Thump went back and devoured as much of Cobby's work as they could find. Which is why they tracked him down and got him to put together a mix for them.
The man's having a great year thus far, and his recent release on Aficiando, the Rich Arthurs featuring 'Bushfarmer' has been everywhere, so it's not surprising that he dropped it in his set for them. The result is a genuine stunner, and one of the best they've heard so far this year. Ranging from blissed out cosmic chuggers to squiggly acid inflections, dreamy African BBQ belters to sunset-ready reggae, Cobby's mix is the perfect accompaniment to endless days under the blazing Croatian sun. Or wet weekends in Solihull. Whatever works for you. Check it out over on http://bit.ly/29zlRbs and have a read of the interview with Hull's finest.
