There’s nothing quite like listening to electronic dance music at 10 o’clock in the morning, minutes after taking that first sip of coffee. We’re not sure if we’d recommend listening to the latest studio album from Deadmau5, entitled >Album Title Goes Here<, like this, since these albums are usually kept for drunken dance parties or pumping yourself up to clean your house, but we can’t deny it gives a different kind of jolt to your morning routine. Oh, and before you start scrolling to the bottom of the page to leave us a message that we forgot to input the proper title, forget it — that’s what the album is called.

The third single, “Professional Griefers,” featuring the vocal stylings of My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way (didn’t he become a priest or something?), is probably the most accessible song Joel Zimmerman’s ever produced, which can generally be said about the entire album as well. Zimmerman mixed in his lengthy instrumental electro pieces perfectly with tracks featuring vocals by Imogen Heap, Chris James and Cypress Hill, which bodes well for fans of the producer and listeners who are new to this Canadian electro superstar.
