Recorded between 2007 and 2012, the album was primarily produced by deadmau5, featuring guest appearances from Wolfgang Gartner, Gerard Way (formerly of American rock band My Chemical Romance), American hip hop group Cypress Hill, English recording artist Imogen Heap, and singer Chris James. According to deadmau5, the album is partially a compilation of songs that were previously recorded and not released as singles. While > album title goes here < primarily uses influences of progressive house and electro house, it also incorporates genres such as downtempo, trip hop, IDM, ambient and hip hop. The songs "Sleepless", "Take Care of the Proper Paperwork", "Telemiscommunications" and "Failbait" break from deadmau5's typical progressive house and electro house sound, and are widely compared to deadmau5's Get Scraped-era material.
The album has spawned five singles to date: "Maths", "The Veldt", "Professional Griefers", "Channel 42", and "Telemiscommunications". A music video directed by Paul Boyd was released for "Professional Griefers", which featured both deadmau5 and Way, and was promoted by Ultimate Fighting Championship. A fully animated music video by Qudos Animations was released on June 25, 2012.
