Based on Ray Bradbury’s epic 1950 short-story “The Veldt,” the track was originally an instrumental by Joel Zimmerman. That was until Chris James sent him a vocal edit over the track.
Upon hearing the remake, Deadmau5 took to his Tumblr to share it with the world.
Born Joel Zimmerman on January 5, 1981, Deadmau5 rose to prominence when his track “Faxing Berlin” found its way onto the playlist of legendary DJ/producer Pete Tong’s radio show. Deadmau5 soon became an important figure in the world of progressive house music, with his songs appearing on more than 15 compilation releases (including In Search of Sunrise, Vol. 6: Ibiza). A native of Toronto, Canada, he released his work through his own label, Mau5trap Recordings, and scored a number of awards in 2008, including a Juno Award for Dance Recording of the Year. He released Random Album Title that same year, along with the first volume of the remix-collecting At Play series. The year 2009 saw the release of the singles collection It Sounds Like along with the mix album For Lack of a Better Name, while the studio album 4 X 4 = 12 followed in 2010. The year 2011 saw the release of the DVD Live @ Earl’s Court along with the compilation Remixes
