No thanks.

Part of me wonders why labels just don't do this with their catalogs.

This is some backwards thinking. I get the desire to capitalize on his body of work and provide the fans with a unique experience, but I don't see this being successful or sustainable long-term.

My bad I didn't read the post only the headline, I meant the website live.deadmau5.com has been live for awhile.

I guess the app must have job dropped.

People act like this is the first subscription-based music app/fan club in existence. lol People been blowing money on stupid stuff like this since day one.

This is no different than Tom Delonge charging you to join his AvA club when they first released We Don't Need To Whisper. Yeah, I bought into that shit. This is no different - just in phone app form.

The way I see it, if you're a fan of his music, and you get more than 5 songs out of it, it's worth the 5 dollars. Going rate for a digital track is $1 these days. Now, I'm sure it can get old fast. Idk who would dish the yearly price. But then again, I'm not a deadmau5 fan so it's not like this is for me anyhow.
