turn it up and embrace the beat.....
Agreed
Interesting tune
As soon as this tune came on I headed immediately to the comments section.  I figured a few heads would be exploding.  Kinda reminds me of the "death before disco" days.  Looks like comments are pretty equally split, so Bill must be doing something right, keeping' it eclectic!

67 here, and I agree! My kid has tuned me in to many groups the last 25 years that none of my peers are even remotely familiar with, and that's on them.....
Hillarious how that metabolically challenged rodent brings the regular anti-negging hippies and good-ol'-boys out of the woodwork, howling bloody murder, lol

I'm 64 and like this too. Small doses though.
If the volume is not up, you're doing it (listening) wrong!

Stay cool, xray38!  I'm a bit younger (42) yet still "too old for this" yet I crank it too....Long Live RP!!
This is awful 🤮

So true!!!!
Part of the music at the end seems lifted from the Akira soundtrack.
Every time the mau5 plays, the volume goes up.
bullshit


Something music has become worse, goes towards commerce. If this continues, the radio will cease to be unique and there will be another massive shit
Most boring electronica ever. 
Sorry I really don’t like it. Really awful
OMG, what is this disgust?
Head banging music, in a good way.

When this plays, can't do nothin else.

Crank it up!
Sounds like the soundtrack to just about every YouTube thumbnail clickbait video I have seen

I've seen Deadmau5 with my teenage son a few times.  Pretty sure I was one of the oldest folks in attendance:)

Not my first choice in music.  But when you gaze across a sea of people, and they are all throbbing to the beat, I totally get it.  I don't think you get that same level of audience cohesion at a typical rock show.

Crank it up and enjoy the drop!

Does the SKIP button elude everyone commenting on this number?

Best comment I've ever seen on the RP boards.  
Techno is an abomination.
C'mon RP - Have you had a brain-fart or something?

Computer-based, or algorithm-based music has been "composed" and recorded since the 1970s.   Perhaps human influence is over-rated.

this is disturbing. and for that reason, I am out
When I was in high school, we had what was then a cutting edge synth that we messed around with. There was no instruction manual, they just let us have at it. We used to make noise exactly like this, and we thought it was so cool. Maybe I can see the appeal if you're in a club and just need a beat to dance to without wanting to think thru the drug haze, but I don't understand listening to it on the radio. To each her own, different strokes, takes all kinds etc. Rock on.
Just no.

My honest opinion...... Naaaaaaa not RP level of music

Different spelling.  
This is a good headphones tune.
There is "Austrian Apparel" if you want to listen to good Eurocore as well.

Oh come on, there is a universe full of electro stuff that is magnitudes better than this (past) teenage shiit. Try Venetian Snares for an instance.   
I wish I had some coke or meth , or X, or whatever, to make this enjoyable beyond the first minute...

No, this is simply bad. Its like Helene Fischer.

Thumbs up to counter the Thumbs down someone gave ya...not sure why....pretty funny rpdevotee!  Long Live RP!!
J'adoreeeeeee !  I love !!!
Maybe Bill sometimes just puts our tolerance limit to the test.
OK, stay calm ... breath ... inhale ... exhale ...
This is getting quite tiresome.

Surely you have more dance music to play other than this track.

Wake uuuup! {#Dancingbanana_2}
This is a comment testing v7 beta.
Such average crap. 

Seriously. Why?
cmon - nothing against diversity, its whar makes RP such an amazing thing - but this is wothelss bu.....

i dont mind electronic music as long it is music and its containig some creativitiy - but this is pure annoyment
Despite all the reasons to not like this, I really enjoy it - guilty pleasure?  YouTube puts together a nice playlist of his songs.
It's ok, its a bit long.  Seven minutes of the same electronic stuff; while quite mindless and easy to work to, it just feels like someone messing around with their synthesizer, nothing really new here.
dreadful nonsense

this reminds me of getting a good high on in beautiful Amsterdam and then hearing this nonsense everywhere, almost. thank God for Cafe 420
Fantastic. Thanks for some electro vibes!
Just uprated this as there is a time and place for this and it just hit a sweet spot with me. Good driving music! "It was the music honestly officer..."
Greetings to all and to the Radioparadise Team :-) Live long and prosper :-)
Enough, already!
I so want to like this, but I'm not sure I really do. And I so want to NOT like it, but I'm not sure about that either.
 
What I really do like is the fact that RP plays eclectic music, so I never get bored.
 
Thanks, Bill.

Eurotrash
 
I think it is actually Canotrash. But it is pretty good Canotrash IMHO.
I like a lot of the other Deadmau5 songs played here, but this doesn't bring a lot to the table. 
Eurotrash
eclectic WTF
This "song" is about 7:35 too long 
just down rated from a 2 to a 1

Me to  10.   I always turn it up when this plays.   The tubular bells at the end is not my fav tho.
wow
Try thinking of hand sanding a floor instead of dance disco.  Works for me.  <8

It doesn't really fit into the usual RP style but I like it anyway. Very nice every now and then.

8/10

Definitely not. It seems you haven't hear Gogol Bordello - Pala Tute yet...
P.S. Love this Deadmau5 track, rating 10.
I wonder what happened to dead mice 1,2,3 and 4..  was it fratricide? the cat? 
This track is almost irritating. Others from Deadmau5 are more enjoyable, imho.
Designed for/by monkeys.
Well, it was about the time of the evening (3:15am) when I would be dancing to music like this in the clubs in SF about 30 years ago...

I also don't listen to RP for the RnR tracks, they bore me and sometimes there are long stretches of them. I happily PSD if I can. But I guess everybody will find something here they don't like or even dislike intensily. Isn't it weird though that we keep listening despite this? :-)

I know it’s not universally popular with listeners but I for one am enjoying the odd Deadmau5 and Bob Moses track that’s finding its way into the playlist!
To answer the question: Do any RP listeners like DeadMau5

On occasion, in measured doses. It changes the mood a bit. After all, isn't RP classed as eclectic. 
And besides that, it's like traffic lights. No one likes them but they only last a few minutes then you're on your way.

I frequently log on to RP to vent my disdain about hearing Deadmau5 - and some other EDM artists. (I'm also quick to compliment great finds, gems and relics from the past or new discoveries... i'm not just a complainer.)

Question is this.... do any RP listeners actualy like Deadmau5? I see its rated as a 6 in aggregate.  

Thanks Bill for being so eclectic.... Maybe you're goal is to actually help us appreciate GOOD music that much more.

I guess.

Music to route PCBs to at 2:30AM.
RP's midlife crisis
Deadmau5 :  Synthétiser demo ? Berk and re berk

I don’t think this should be on Radio Paradise.


Me too !!!

Not my cuppa. It's like Jean Michel Jarre Lite with a surplus of cliches, mediocre melodies and a rhythm machine set to 'repeat'.

Working on stats and numbers late in the day, so this is energizing me in a mindless kind of way - Me likee! 
Really?! I think that RP is not a good place for EDM music. So far from your playlists....
Was just about to walk away from my desk but now I find myself wanting to listen to this track.

Thanks for the change of pace, Bill!
oh we doing that thing?

EDM is for ibiza and financial people drinking expensive champagne? people who listen to country are rednecks who have incest?

spare us your thoughts on music, forever. tyvm.

segue into some Jarre. Take these kids to school
I have to stay late and work on graphics. Like this to work by...
Big Jean Michel Jarre influence, especially on the gorgeous intro. Then.................the decline. Like a train run outta steam.

Good morning from Central Canada Bill, yes Canada, Deadmou5 ville.  The operative word  in my greeting is MORNING. I know you're somewhere out on the left coast and your audience spans the globe, but .... what a HORRIBLE thing to wake up to on a nice snowy Sunday morning in the Laurentian Mountains of Quebec. 

Not sure if I should be getting a coffee or bottle service...... 
Maybe its a Canadian thing, but yes, couldn't agree more...RP is RP because its inclusive...I love the odd immediate left turn, EDM then banjos...its the surprise that's fun...the whole idea of "eclectic"....

Sorry Bill, this is just wrong.

Deadmau5 and all the other uber DJ's have one venue. Dance Clubs. 1000's of people, bottle service, high rollers and posers. 

The music makes some sense there..... and most other EDM makes sense there (like it or not)

Makes no sense in my living room.
