mau5trap Announces 'Legendary' From deadmau5 x Shotty Horroh

Earlier this spring deadmau5 made his way around the U.S. on his 'lots of shows in a row' tour featuring his new Cube 2.1 stage show and lots of new music. "Legendary," an experimental hip- hop track he teased fans with late last year featuring Manchester, UK rapper Shotty Horroh was a highlight of the performance. Today, Friday, August 25 mau5trap officially releases the track which also cements Shotty Horroh as a new artist signing to deadmau5's label.

Check out "Legendary" by deadmau5 x Shotty Horroh now here.

Born and raised in the Harpurhey part of Manchester, England, Shotty broke through the clutter with razor sharp battle rap skills, which were viewed by millions around the world via YouTube videos. Said videos caught the attention of Canadian super-producer deadmau5. Shotty left such an impression that deadmau5 flew him from Manchester to his studio outside Toronto almost immediately and the two spent several days straight in the studio. The vibe was so right, it laid the groundwork for a longstanding relationship.
It's a time of career-highs for Shotty right now. His "Some More" record featuring Tory Lanez is in heavy rotation on radio airwaves and streaming sites and he just wrapped up filming his first major acting role in a BBC-backed film VS, in which he plays a leading role as a prominent battle rapper. Another highlight for Shotty-an artist focused on speaking for "the working-class lad" from Manchester-includes a contribution to James Blake's multi-platinum project "Sermon."
For Shotty Horroh, it's never been about the fame or the money, only the art and to make standout music that will allow listeners the chance to momentarily "forget that the world is crumbling." Shotty is merging his multi-syllabic rhymes with the rock n' roll sounds he grew up with drawing inspiration from Happy Mondays, Inspiral Carpets and Oasis. His goal is to position himself as the second-wave of a time when Manchester was the "be all and end all" of rock and roll.
