deadmau5 began the We Are Friends compilation back in 2012 as a way to showcase up-and-coming talent through his well-respected mau5trap label. The compilation is an annual appointment with some of the most established names on the imprint’s roster but also never fails to highlight talent that the revered producer himself thinks are ready for the next big step.
We Are Friends Vol.7 follows on the footsteps of the editions before it, underscoring the quality of artists that have been pushing the envelope for quality electronic music forward. One of these is Chicago-based Bentley Dean, who has been working tirelessly behind the scenes honing his craft as a producer and DJ. Bentley Dean finds himself in good company, joining deadmau5, ATTLAS, Rinzen and more for mau5trap’s latest outing, contributing with a remix of BlackGummy’s “KT” that is the perfect encapsulation of the label’s techy and dark progressive sound.
