Joel Thomas Zimmerman has displayed diversity in the bulk of music he has recently released, toying with styles that range from industrial to ambient. Thrown into these releases are collaboration with Kill The Noise, two dance heavy electronic productions that Deadmau5 fans have come to expect, and even a few, what seem to be, clips of tracks that posses many of the qualities found in more ambient music.
Joel's newest release, "Omnifck", sticks close to the latter (ambient) approach, never progressing in a sense of energy, but eluding to movement with lush sweeping textures. Throughout "Omnifck" the overall vibe can come off as sinister at times with a heavy low end and dark chord progression, not far off from Boards of Canada. However, light playful synth melodies shine through to level out the tone, creating a forward minded song that is a leap in a different direction for Deadmau5.
