A ten-second Snapchat clip posted by producer Pete Rock shows him and West vibing in the studio to Deadmau5’s “Snowcone” off his recently released album W:/2016ALBUM.

deadmau5 was flattered by the Snapchat post and tweeted a response to the producer.

This isn’t the first time Rock has taken to social media to reveal that he’s been collaborating with West. On December 5 he shared on Instagram that he was listening to 45s in the studio with the rapper. The clip included a horn-driven sound implying that West is going in a new direction for what could be Turbo Grafx 16, the follow-up to West’s The Life of Pablo album.
