Near the end of 2017, Deadmau5 was streaming on Twitch – as he often does – and revealed to his viewers a WIP of an orchestral version of his hit “Strobe” that absolutely blew our socks off. Nothing has come of it until today, when deadmau5 began teasing something on Twitter, calling it “the most epic thing I’ve ever done with my music.”

A fan asked for any hints on the matter, to which deadmau5 responded, “Sure, maybe one… an actual 60 piece orchestra.” Keeping in mind the “Strobe” orchestral remix from December, a fan asked if it was about that. He cut off any speculation with a succinct, “It’s actually not.”

Will it be something along the lines of Pete Tong’s tour with the Heritage Orchestra or Above & Beyond’s acoustic shows? Or could it be more like Nero’s one-off Symphony 2808 with the┬áThe BBC Philharmonic Orchestra? Who’s to say now, but the possibilities are endless and exciting.

Hopefully we find out more about this project in 2018 along with the release of deadmau5’s next album.
