Electronic music producer, DJ, musician, and composer deadmau5 has dropped mau5ville: Level 1 EP, which contains four tracks and four remixes of the first track “Monophobia”. Musical collaborations include Rob Swire, Getter, Nothing,Nowhere; GTA, Rinzen, Latroit and ATTLAS.

It’s interesting to note some of the meanings behind the song titles:

  • The first single titled Monophobia is defined as a phobia of isolation; a morbid fear of being egotistical, or a dread of being alone or isolated. Sufferers need not be physically alone, but just to believe that they are being ignored or unloved.

Lyrical excerpt from the song: “And all I want is to find out what you’re going through. What do I know? Maybe this silence is dangerous.”

  • While his track Nyquist appears to be referring to the Nyquist Frequency, named after electronic engineer Harry Nyquist, which is a principle that engineers follow in the digitization of analog signals.
