For a remix of epic proportions, Jauz kept many of the original elements of the song from Rob Swire’s soaring vocals to deadmau5’ easy to recognize heralding synths but with his own twist. “Making a remix for a song as revered and respected as ‘Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff’ is honestly almost an impossible task,” says Jauz. “It was intimidating and humbling to say the least. But it was also a great exercise to remind myself how to stop putting pressure and expectation on myself, and just make whatever comes out naturally. I made eight different versions of this remix and this is the only one that really felt like ‘me.’ Thanks to Joel and team for letting me remix one of the greatest electronic records of all time. It really was an honor and such a cool experience”
"Ghosts 'n' Stuff" is one of the most recognizable tracks from deadmau5' catalog. Originally released in 2008 as an instrumental version with its vocal version featuring Pendulum's Rob Swire following in 2009, the double-platinum anthem appeared on deadmau5' album For Lack of a Better Name. The chart-topping song hit #1 on Billboard Hot Dance Airplay and became the narrative of one of the most viral video clips in modern day electronic music culture, the “Ghosts n Stuff (HARD Intro)” video captured at HARD Haunted Mansion in 2008. Since its debut, it has garnered over 400,000,000 collective plays over DSPs and also holds double-platinum RIAA sales status. “This creepy organ intro is bone-chillingly cool” sharedBillboard. “This motif is one of deadmau5’s most memorable and instantly recognizable melodies.”
Prior to Jauz only two other artists have been tapped for an official remix of the song--a mix by NERO was featured in its 2009 single package with Chuckie following in 2014 as a bonus track on the 5 Years of mau5 compilation album.
