Fans who attended deadmau5’ early 2020 cubev3 live shows in New York City and Philadelphia were treated to the song during his technology-fueled sets. “Bridged By A Lightwave”—a seven-minute musical odyssey which made its premiere on SIRIUSXM BPM and Kiesza’s first ever collaboration with deadmau5–brings him back to the dance floors destined to become another great work in his pantheon of female-fronted collaborations which also includes “Drama Free” featuring LIGHTS, “I Remember” with Kaskade, “Sofi Needs A Ladder” featuring SOFI, “Raise Your Weapon” featuring Greta Svabo Bech and the deadmau5 remix of Morgan Page’s “The Longest Road” featuring Lissie.
A fellow Canadian via Calgary, Kiesza has managed to bring her unique carefree spirit to every journey she embarked on. As a former member of the Royal Canadian Navy, a ballet dancer, and beauty queen, she exploded onto the music scene in 2014 when her hit song “Hideaway” became a global smash hit and fans fell in love with more than just her songs.
“deadmau5 and I used to endlessly run into one another at festivals and always talked about working together one day. I think we talked about it for at least four years before we actually finally got down to business. I have Joel’s beautiful wife Kelly to thank for holding us both to our word. She has always been a huge supporter of my music and never let us off the hook for committing to work,” says Kiesza. “Finally, one day he sent me a track to write over. I wasn’t proud of my initial ideas and being a big fan of Joel, I was determined to give him my absolute best work. One night as I was heading to Norway from the UK to mentor music young students, my taxi hit a massive traffic jam and I soon realized I wasn’t going to make my flight. We were at a standstill for almost an hour before we began inching toward the airport. But as I was sitting there peering out the window, like magic, all of a sudden the entire song just appeared. I pulled out my phone as fast I could to capture the words and they flew in. It was as if someone was threading the song into my mind from another dimension. By the time I finally arrived at airport, my flight had long departed, but ‘Bridged By A Lightwave’ had landed in this ‘3D place.’”
