Listen to deadmau5's "Strobe" (Michael Woods 2014 Remix) now here  and "Raise Your Weapon" Maywald remix courtesy of at:

These offerings also join other tracks such as:

  • "Ghosts n Stuff (Chuckie Remix): The iconic Dirty Dutch producer turns his hand to remixing what is widely recognized as one of deadmau5' most influential tracks of his career. Chuckie's punchy, synth-rich rework provides a welcome, contemporary electrohouse twist while re-layering Rob Swire's anthemic vocal over a thumping, hard-edged bassline. It serves as a great introduction to Chuckie's revered 'Dirty Dutch' production remit, while simultaneously reminding the world just how crucial a record 'Ghosts n Stuff' remains. 
  • The "Maths (Botnek Remix)" that made its debut on Billboard.
  • "I Remember" (Shiba San Remix): Pete Tong premiered the remix on his influential Radio One show and had the blogsphere  ablaze commenting on the sultry remix by emerging Dirtybird producer Shiba San.
  • "Some Chords (Dillon Francis Remix)" From the opening track of deadmau5's 2010 album 4x4=12, is a classic mau5 track bathed in synths.  Close friend Dillon Francis surprised fans in late August this year by playing his own remix of the song. The deadmau5 "Some Chords" (Dillon Francis remix) made its official debut on Twitter's new SoundCloud integration player at: and to date has garnered over one million plays. Both the original version of the song and Dillon Francis' remix appear on the retrospective. 
  • "Raise Your Weapon" with a new offering from Australia's Wax Motif.  U.K.'s Q magazine premiered the track here.
