Just a few days ago we saw Deadmau5 launch social media accounts for his techno alias, TESTPILOT. The posts were a clear indication of a teaser of some sort, with a simple caption: ‘Friday’. And now, we know what the mysterious tease was for.
If you attended Electric Forest last year you were graced with a 2-hour-long techno set by Joel performing as TESTPILOT. And people like me who didn’t go were left longing for a good audio recording of the set. The good news for that lot is that this new tease turned out to be a complete, high-fidelity recording of the set.
The set’s release follows after the ink dried on a deal between Dubset and Warner Music Group to allow instant copyright clearance for unofficial DJ mixes and sets. The set is now available to stream only on Apple Music (so far) in all its techno glory.
