Chet Porter is entering a comeback era with the release of his first single in three years, “Longest Day Ever.” The track is a worthy re-entrance into the music scene, and it begs the question of whether he is back for good.

“Longest Day Ever” induces euphoria through instrumentals, indie vocals, and an explosive combination of soprano synths. The musician’s style has long been described as a mixture of Animal Collective, M83, and Porter Robinson, and this newest release only furthers this as a worthy descriptor. Porter commented to the press “Longest Day Ever”:

‘The Longest Day Ever’ feels like a good launching point for the new music. I made it in a day just randomly in my bedroom when I was supposed to be finishing other music, and I knew right away it was gonna be the first song I put out. The whole thing is actually just a demo, really. The vocals are the rough idea I recorded into my phone, I hadn’t even written anything down yet. I tried re-tracking them for real but they just didn’t have the same vibe. The song is about not caring about anything, so sonically it’s actually kind of suiting. It’s not a ‘fun care-free’ type of not caring, though. it’s more melancholy”

Porter took a break from releasing music after facing significant mental health issues that stopped him from completing the San Holo tour and hindered his creative process. After a necessary step back from touring and producing, Chet is returning to the scene refreshed and inspired, and “Longest Day Ever” is a testament to his successful recovery.

Summer has historically been a busy time for Porter Robinson. This summer brought Robinson’s first curator credits with the launch of his lauded Second Sky festival. In the summer of 2016, he and Madeon teamed up to give us the unforgettable “Shelter,” and now five summers ago on August 12, Robinson graced us with his groundbreaking debut studio album, Worlds.

The album, steeped in Japanese cultural inspirations, opened electronic music up to brilliantly new emotional complexities. In fact, it’s not a stretch to say that World‘s glitching sound design and artfully retro sonic collages informed the creative precedents that dominate electronic music today, now half a decade later. The LP, released via Astralwerks, nearly instantly cemented itself as a modern day classic, and rightfully propelled Porter Robinson into conversations about the all-time greats. Revisit Worlds below.

Fresh off the heels of two ultra-satisfying setlist-tools-turned-official-releases, Skrillex has turned in a new visual feature to accompany one of his new Show Tracks, “Mumbai Power.” The video is a collection of clips from the road, from stadiums to street corners, festival stages to plane cabins, with a gang of Skrillex’s friends following him on his adventures across the world.

Kenny Beats, Porter Robinson, longtime touring teammate Team EZY, Mija, recent collaborators Kelsey Lu and Troyboi, and even Loki, all make appearances in the new visual cut. Fans and social media followers will surely recognize snippets of the globetrotting superstar and his crew throughout the video, recapping appearances in Japan, Korea, and India to the highly repeatable “Mumbai Power.”

Porter Robinson‘s Second Sky Festival has reached its conclusion, but the electronic music community is still reeling from the weekend’s performances, especially Skrillex‘s surprise set. The producer offered a little misdirection surrounding his involvement with the affair, tweeting that he wished he were at the festival. But sure enough, the OWSLA boss showed up disguised as a blow-up figure after Porter Robinson announced that an ominous special guest by the name of “DJ Potaro” was set to take the stage.  

Fortunately, YouTube user, Myshonok, captured the entire set, allowing those who weren’t there (and those who were) to transport back to see the producer drop cornerstone selects from his catalog like “Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites,” along with a litany of his newer releases.

Other highlights of the weekend include Madeon playing a back-to-back set with Robinson, and Robinson playing a full Worlds throwback set dedicated to the revered 2014 album release.

Rewind time with Porter Robinson’s sentimental ‘Worlds’ set at Second Sky [WATCH]Porter Robinson Worlds Live

It’s safe to say that Porter Robinson‘s first go at a festival, Second Sky, was a glowing success. The two-day event touched down in Oakland on June 15 and boasted a star-studded lineup including his Shelter collaborator Madeon, Cashmere Cat, and even a surprise showing from Skrillex. Robinson also took opening slots on both days of the event under his Virtual Self moniker to encourage early entry and music discovery.

One of the biggest treats for those in attendance, however, was the revival of Porter’s Worlds live set. The set was more expressive and ethereal than ever, with the musician immersing himself fully into the vibrant performance. Worlds sets aren’t common these days on the performance circuit, since Robinson’s been taking the better part of the last couple years promoting his iconic new Virtual Self project.

Those who missed both the event and its live stream are in luck; the set has since been uploaded to multiple platforms for listening pleasure, and the Twitch stream is now available on YouTube. Those lucky enough to be present can also relive this singular experience that took place that fateful evening in Oakland.
