Deadmau5 welcomes back longtime mau5trap collaborator and horde member Jay Robinson for hau5trap0003, continuing the highly successful launch of his brand new label hau5trap. Jay Robinson teams up with Dominique for his intoxicating new single “Complicated,” which will be released on Thursday, April 8 via the house-oriented label.
Jay Robinson, a master of technical production and compelling compositions, found his rightful home at mau5trap, and now hau5trap, the house-centric counterpart. Jay Robinson shows no signs of slowing down in his hau5trap debut, with hit singles like “What You Do” with Example and “Know Yourself” with Idris Elba, as well as hit remixes for deadmau5’s “COASTED” and “Pomegranate” with The Neptunes.
“Complicated,” a sweeping dancefloor anthem, sonically blends oscillating basslines with techy grooves. Dominique’s buttery smooth vocals captivate with spellbinding luster, while busting four-on-the-floor beats carry the tune from the start. “Complicated,” with its euphoric dance-ready flair and intricate sound design and technical melodies, pervades the senses. Jay Robinson’s “Complicated” is hypnotic house music at its finest, serving as the perfect intersection of reverberating bass and tech house synth work.
Yet again I can’t believe my luck, not only did I get to release on the legendary mau5trap, now I get to release on hau5trap too, being at the forefront of such an amazing project really is something I could only have dreamed of in the past. Massive thanks as always to the teams at Circle Eight and 720 for helping to get the vocal and get this track out there for everyone to hear! – Jay Robinson
I’ve had the pleasure of watching Jay Robinson grow as producer, performer and artist as part of our extended family. Between his phenomenal remixes for deadmau5, and his innate appreciation for house music, Jay is a perfect fit for hau5trap – Dean Wilson, CEO & Founder of Seven20
