deadmau5 Circa 1998–2002 is a self-released compilation by deadmau5, released under the name Halcyon441 on his SectionZ page. It is a collection of tracks he had made around 1998–2002, as the title suggests.

The compilation features tracks (or variants of tracks) that were released on his 2005 debut album Get Scraped. These are "The Oshawa Connection", "Intelstat" and "Bored of Canada". Zimmerman also re-released the tracks "Screen Door", "Long Walk Off A Short Pier", "Superlover", "Obsidian (Halcyon441 Remix)" (renamed to "Obsidian"), and a reworked version of "My Opinion" on his 2017 compilation album Stuff i used to do.[1]

All of the compilation's tracks have since been uploaded to the video networking site YouTube, but most of the uploads have approximately two seconds cut from the beginning due to technical error.

Songs[edit]

Circa 1998-2002 features the song "Aural Psynapse", which would be remade and re-released in 2011, as well as the track "Feelin' Fresh", which the 2010 track "Cthulhu Sleeps" (from 4×4=12) would be loosely based on.

"Bored of Canada" is assumed to refer to Scottish IDM act Boards of Canada. This track would later feature on Zimmerman's 2005 album Get Scraped and his 2008 compilation Project 56.
