With the illuminated big head and all, Canadian producer Joel Zimmerman's Deadmau5 alias is a blast to see live, but you can also bring quite a bit of that tech-house-meets-slammin'-electro excitement home with 4x4=12. As bad as the masked one is at math, he's conversely just as good at making you dance, as this unmixed but almost non-stop set of big room tunes throbs and snaps with that Daft Punk sense of style. Rabid fans should be warned, though, that they've already heard the big highlights, as tracks like "Some Chords," "Sofi Needs a Ladder," the wicked "Animal Rights," and others had been previously released on 12"s, but the remaining cuts are hardly filler. Unheard numbers such as the creepy "Cthulhu Sleeps" and the Wendy Carlos-like "Right This Second" help to turn a club-oriented set of tunes into a well-rounded album, and when the one-two punch of "Raise Your Weapon" and "One Trick Pony" introduce the Mau5's newfound love of dubstep, you've got just enough variety. Miss Sofi (Sofia Toufa) and Greta Svabo Bech contribute vocals, while producers Wolfgang Gartner and Michael Woods skillfully help with the knob twiddling.

I have heard all of the music on this CD and if you love DM5, youll love this!!! I give this 5 stars!! Sofi's Needs ladder is the best song on this album and if you love to mix this is a great cd to mix bc they are all 128 BMP!! DM5 cant get any better than this so far, although his compilation CD "Sounds Like" is amazing this CD can defiantly compare to this and be both very good!! Please recommend your local BnN to sell this and not just over the Internet!! GO AND PRE ORDER IT NOW!!
