With Stranger Things becoming one of the summer's most talked about TV shows, Deadmau5 recently did a spaced-out rework of its theme song in his home studio.

The 80s-set Netflix supernatural science fiction series has been getting a lot of attention for its soundtrack—written by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein—but the Canadian producer's version rebuilds the opening track from scratch, adding reverb-heavy, analog synths, and galactic thumps to give it a new, equally eerie feel.
