Released today as an exclusive on Beatport is the awesome deadmaus remixes of Di Scala & Airey ‘Space and Time’

Deadmau5 adds his inimitable production to the monster funky house original in both vocal and dub mixes. Whilst capturing the esscence of the underground the powerful club destroying power that you are used to from deadmau5 still remains. This slighty edgier and fresher presentation from deadmau5 could be the begining of a new direction and one that we all love and are sure you will too.
