I've heard it but if I am being honest I don't care for it too much. The tempo is a little fast for me and the high hats are obtrusive. It's very
"Rave" which is fine but I like how many of Deadmau5' songs build up and give your brain a chance to really take in the melody(in this case that of
Edit: Also FYI, you probably do know this(maybe others don't) but neither "Deadmau5" or "Cygnus-X" came up with the melody. They are remixes of the

Also theres the Ferry Corstens remake of Henry Barber's "Adagio for strings", the song
used in the movie Platoon. I like prefer the original.
And finally there are 2 albums by William Orbit called Pieces in a modern style vol 1 & 2.
I also have the following, wich I think is sampled from Beethovens symphony 9 allegretto.
Iam not 100% sure but Ill include the video anyways as it is quite funny
If you know any modern mixes of old classics please do tell.
Sorry guys if I went abit off-topic but yo this is important stuff.

You know, I actually remixed "Ride of the Valkyries" which turned out pretty awesome but it's on my other computer which won't turn on at the

Here's another good "Deadmau5" tune that's not as popular and little more upbeat, but I like it:
Also in terms of classical remixes I would like to do or listen to:
Ooo didnt hear that mau5 track before, I like it very much, thanks.
But eh, you're into making your own tracks/mixes?
What coincidence, I too is into making & producing music :-)

however the tempo fluctuates a bit and there are no drums so Iam having

Heres the track I'd like to beef up; Brian Eno - An ending.
I liked that Song to the Moon.
Do tell if you do your own mix! :-)
