Deadmau5 remixes Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Survivalism’ – listen

Joel Zimmerman has made his own version of Trent Reznor's 2007 song

Deadmau5 has remixed Nine Inch Nails‘ ‘Survivalism’, which was the first single to be taken from the industrial band’s 2007 album ‘Year Zero’.

Scroll down to hear the re-rub, which Joel Zimmerman – the real name of the dance music titan – posted online earlier today (July 17).

Deadmau5 has recently collaborated with My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way, recording a new track ‘Professional Griefers’ which has been confirmed for a September 2 release.

Deadmau5 returns to the UK to play Creamfields Festival next month over the August bank holiday weekend. He is also currently working on the follow-up to his 2010 album ‘4×4=12’, which is due for release later this year.

Meanwhile, Nine Inch Nails‘ mainman Trent Reznor has revealed that he has written the new theme song for the latest edition of the hugely successful Call Of Duty computer game franchise.

Speaking to USA Today about the track, Reznor said it was an “aggressively sounding” piece of guitar, bass and drums-based rock, which plays off the game’s storyline, also adding: “There is a lot of reservation and angst and sense of loss and regret and anger bubbling under the surface. So it didn’t make sense to have a gung ho patriotic feeling kind of theme song. It has to feel weighty.”

Speaking about Nine Inch Nails, he added: “I’m working on some new Nine Inch Nails stuff. Hopefully, it will be good to hear. Right now, it’s in its gestation period.”
