Deadmau5 on lyrics and songwriting

November 17, 2019

well I actually don’t write any of my lyrics I never really have usually what happens is I’ll create a
track that although I’m sure give a certain mood and I tend to lean towards more melancholic kind of melodies and phrases and then when a singer gets it I don’t what their process but I’m sure they hum it out and kind of write their own words to it and I never really ever had a
disagreement between myself and a songwriter or a singer in terms of
lyrical content or anything like that I just managed to you know say Yup I like it or no I don’t like it and I
think maybe the music lends itself more to feeling a little
more melancholic then then what the singer would you know intentionally do so that’s usually how that works out

    i write lyrics by taking a mic, and listening to the track. I record my vocals over it repeatedly until i get something i like out of my freestyling, and keep that part in my lyrics, and then continue the process until i've created effective lyrics that I'm satisfied with.
