Music producer and DJ deadmau5 has released a music video for his latest track, “When the Summer Dies” with singer-songwriter Lights. Created in collaboration with developer Manticore Games, the music video features numerous user-created dystopian worlds submitted by fans of deadmau5 after Joel challenged his fans to create these worlds using the Core platform. This incredible collaboration with deadmau5 and Core creators resulted in more than 130 entries worldwide, some from creators with little to no prior experience with video game development.
The music video, edited by Leah Sems in partnership with Pixelynx, a new gaming venture created by deadmau5, Richie Hawtin, Ben Turner, and Dean Wilson, is one of the multiple planned collaborations between deadmau5 and Manticore. Fans can also look forward to the October launch of Oberhasli, a new virtual world and music experience designed by deadmau5 within the Core metaverse. Intended to be an interactive space where fans can meet up virtually, Oberhasli will feature a constantly evolving online world with music, games, and other interactive content curated by deadmau5.
