For the second day’s challenge I have decided on one of my favorite tracks of all time, “1891” by Deadmau5 off the album At Play Vol. 4. Given that the challenge was to choose a song we liked with a number in the title, I think this track fits that to a t, but I did choose it because of it’s personal significance to me. There is no shortage of tracks with a number in the title, but given that Deadmau5 has produced dozens of tracks I consider some of my favorite of all time, this was a no-brainer.
If we were playing scattegories, I think this would be a two point answer since Deadmau5 himself has a number in his name… Yes? No? Either way, “1891” is just one of those classic progressive house tracks that I can listen to in any mood, and enjoy it as much as I did the first time I heard it. Listen below!
Next up is My (Theo’s) choice. I chose to go with Only One by A-Trak x Ookay. A-Trak is a great artist, he has a lot of skill, but Ookay was the original reason I put this song into any rotation. I have yet to dislike a track that he collaborates on.
That being said, this isn’t a track that I listened to a lot when I first downloaded it. To be honest, at first I wasn’t sure why it was so appealing to me. But the more I lsiten to it, the more into it I get. You know the songs, that at first its just like “eh, this is a cool track….” but as it plays more and more you cannot help but to get more into it.
You can check the track out below, under Nick’s Deadmau5 choice.
