Porter Robinson x Madeon – Shelter (JayKode Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Porter Robinson and Madeon’s “Shelter” collaboration was unequivocally one of the biggest tracks of 2016 — in fact, we even named it our #3 top track of the year.

While remixes of the blockbuster collaboration pervaded 2016, “Shelter” has now received a refreshing facelift from multi-talented beatsmith JayKode. The LA-based producer lays down a charmingly sedative backdrop for the vocal anthem, transposing the vocals to give it an entirely new feel.

It’s a highly inventive spin on the track. As it happens, it was never meant to be a remix. “I had no plan to remix shelter since the original was perfect in every aspect,” JayKode writes. “I was actually working on a hip-hop instrumental and messing around with some guitars. Then I started plugging in different a capellas just for fun and when I plugged shelter in, it was complete magic.”

Jaykode – Wasted ft Marco Foster (Takka Remix)

JayKode’s confessional Marco Foster feature, “Wasted,” has received the Takka treatment.

Taking on the JayKode production as the next track subject to the Takka golden touch, the California-based artist transforms “Wasted” into a reflective remix that tempers the rhythmic patterns dominant in the original version. Slowing the single’s pace, Takka’s alterations are metamorphic, rendering the re-imagination a comparatively laid-back track in exuded tone. Takka notably substitutes the thunderous build at the original’s onset for favor of a more minimalistic piano melody audible in the remix’s verses and outro. Takka, however, does not completely depart from the original’s signature percussive elements, using drums at the song’s drop to accelerate the remix. The crown jewel of additions and the foundation for the remix’s tonal shift materializes in the remix’s incorporation of a transfixing flute thread in the track’s drop.

A reinvention of JayKode’s raw original, Takka’s take on “Wasted” boasts a vibe sure to hook any listener.

Party Thieves & JayKode are two quickly-rising names in trap and bass this year. The two producers already have numerous shows, festivals, and fast-streaming singles under their belts and both artists achieve success in part from a common element — by crafting and caring for the content they put out, ensuring it’s a gem no matter how long it takes.

“Poppy Seeds,” which also features Neon Hitch, released on Trap Nation’s Lowly Palace sub-label. This single is tough to dissect, but a gradual intro keeps you curious as to what the next moment will bring, while the drop delivers by unleashing a unique, technical sound that firmly ups the energy.
