“Animals” is the most loved/hated track of our era. On one hand, when Garrix released it, it was revolutionary and captive to the EDM Scene. However, as it got overplayed, people started to hate on it and categorize it as “ever other EDM track.” Truth be told, even Martin Garrix stopped playing his own edit of the track, it got so old, that he started playing Botnek’s remix at festivals.
Nonetheless, we thought we’d throw it back on this Thursday to one edit of Animals that no one saw coming. Well, in reality, we should’ve known better, as Deadmau5 trolled the world at Ultra 2014, by dropping this edit of Animals for the ENTIRE world to see. It was both unexpected and humorous at the same time, but one thing it did do was put Animals back in the limelight, again. Love it or hate it, this was one of the greatest trolls of all time, and we commend Joel’s ambition to do so in front of such a big audience. TBT can bring back quite the memories, can’t it!? I wonder what would’ve happened had Avicii not gotten sick and Deadmau5 not had filled in…
