Change The Beat and mau5trap Records launch remix contest


Open to woman, trans and non-binary artists, Change the Beat and mau5trap announce a competition to remix deadmau5 and LIGHTS’ ‘When The Summer Dies’.

deadmau5 is one of the world’s most respected electronic music producers of modern times. The multiple JUNO Award-winning and GRAMMY®-nominated artist’s ability to push the boundaries of his talent grows at an equal rate to his fan base. Throughout her career thus far, Lights has garnered four JUNO Awards, including “Dance Recording of the Year” and “Pop Album of the Year”. She has sold out tours on multiple continents and powered collaborations with deadmau5, Kaskade, Travis Barker, Steve Aoki, Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park, and more.

Over a decade since its formation, mau5trap — the independent record label founded by groundbreaking electronic music producer deadmau5 — has become a bastion for trailblazing and genre-defying artists. Casting a palpable influence over the genre, Mixmag readers voted mau5trap among the “Top 50 Labels of the Decade”, placing it in the Top 10.
