Review: Deadmau5 – Faxing Berlin (House)

This review covers the progressive house track Deadmau5 – Faxing Berlin.

This track was released in 2007 along with the track Jaded. It is considered by some as one of the tracks that helped to launch the artist into fame in the first place.

One thing about this track is that it’s a very relaxed track. It has a sort of ambient quality to it. While it does have ambient elements, it retains a rather progressive sound through the filtered chords. What helps the progressive elements is the very gradual automation of the filtered chords. This helps to ensure that while the main melody is very repetitive, it’s also constantly changing.

The added effects also helps make this track interesting. The different filtered white noise effects as well as a few other effects really kept this track interesting throughout.

My only really complaint is that this track is a bit drawn out for my tastes. It’s as if this track was drawn out as much as possible without being too boring.

Overall, I thought this was a pleasant track. While it was a bit on the long side, it wasn’t annoyingly so. The progressive elements made this track quite interesting through the automated filtered chord sounds. The ambient elements gave this track a relaxed feel at the same time. So, this track gets a thumbs up from me.
