"I Remember" is a collaborative song by Canadian record producer and DJ deadmau5 and American DJ, record producer and remixer Kaskade.

It was released as the fifth single from deadmau5's third studio album, Random Album Title, on 15 September 2008.

Music video[edit]

There are two video versions, a 10-minute short film and an edited 4-minute version. It was produced by Anthony & Christopher Donnelly of Mancunian Gio-Goi fame and Mike Moran from Mojofuel. The video was directed by Colin O'Toole, cast by Graeme Brown and stars British actor Stephen Graham.[1] Warren Brown, Aston Kelly (Stephen Graham's brother), Greg Costello & also features ex-Coronation Street actress Emma Edmondson. It was filmed in Manchester and features Graham's character talking to two young men (Warren Brown & Aston Kelly) about life and rave culture. The two young men then proceed to find a suitable venue for, what is later revealed to be, an illegal rave with deadmau5 performing as the DJ.

The video features a raver (Costello) wearing a Kaskade t-shirt, and deadmau5 wearing a YourOwnClothing t-shirt. At the end of the video, the deadmau5 song "Brazil (2nd edit)" is mixed in as an outro. Graham was almost arrested after police mistook the video for a genuine illegal rave.[2] The video also ends with a "to be continued" title card but no video appears to have been designated as the plot continuation.


The song appears in the 2010 video games GoldenEye 007 and DJ Hero 2.[3] A remix of "I Remember" by FreeStyleGames was included in the DJ Hero 2 soundtrack. This version was also featured in GoldenEye 007.

"I Remember" was also featured on the soundtrack of the 2011 film The Lincoln Lawyer.[4] The song can be heard during the film when Jesus Martínez, played by Michael Peña, explains his version of the events which occurred on the night of Donna Rentería's murder.

Lastly, this song is also featured in hit television series "Gossip Girl" in the episode "The Empire Strikes Jack" (Season 3 episode 16).[5] The song, being played by deadmau5 himself, appears in the scene of Eleanor Waldorf's pop up fashion show.
