i_o Unleashes Riveting 'Rootkit EP' Out Now Via Mau5trap
i_o takes us from the main stage to the underground with his brand new 2-track Rootkit EP out now mau5trap!
“Audio Dust” dances on the lighter, melodic outskirts of the producer’s generally intense techno/electro soundscape. We can easily hear this one being played out at a huge music festival by deadmau5, Kaskade or some other act along those lines. Deliberate plucks, heavenly chants and an overall euphoric feel make this one a special addition to i_o’s already stunning collection.
Meanwhile, at a darkened, underground rave we might hear “Passivex,” a 7-minute journey through sound that rocks a heavy, throbbing beat. The track picks up more and more energy as it powers forward, evolving into a perfectly executed, larger than life production. We can almost feel the sweat dropping off the ceiling.
“Audio Dust” is the yin to the yang of “Passivex.” This new release shows off i_o’s astonishingly diverse style in a 2-track sweep. He may be relatively new to the scene, but i_o’s sound is taking over the game.
Listen to the riveting Rootkit EP below, and be sure to check out “Lazers” if you haven’t already. We’re obsessed.

Skrillex In Studio with Up-And-Coming Mau5trap Producer… Collab, Please? [VIDEO]
If you haven’t heard mau5trap‘s i_o yet, you’re about to…
The producer has a way channeling old school deadmau5 vibes in an entirely new and darker way. So much so that the label has taken notice, featuring his track “Warning” on . There’s plenty more where that came from, as i_o seems to be full nothing but IDs.
In his latest tweet, i_o teases fans with yet another unreleased track. But then Skrillex has to go and ruin everything. Of course, he’s probably just kidding, because in all actuality, Skrillex tends to make things a lot better.
Does this mean i_o and Skrillex are cooking up something in the studio? We sure hope so…
