Fresh from the Grammys Red Carpet, Virtual Self has gifted fans with Lane 8‘s remix of “Ghost Voices.” More popularly known as Porter Robinson, the producer was this year nominated for the Best Dance Recording category as Virtual Self for his wall-to-wall sensation, “Ghost Voices.” Though he did not win, the track has still not only had a tremendous impact on the electronic sphere, but has also reverberated through the music industry at large.

Lane 8’s take on the release flips the track inside out, pulling the piano to the forefront and shrinking the electronic elements out of focus in the introduction. Crescendoing notes eb and flow through the forefront of the track, while the vocal dances around the new sound structure. While the remix evokes an entirely different, more pensive set of emotions and energy than the original, it still soothes and sonically pleases the listener. The remix has been released on Robinson’s own YouTube channel.

What a week for Porter Robinson. Last week he kicked off 2019 with Virtual Self shows at Exchange LA, hinted at the release of a new alias with an interview in GQ Japan, and even attended his first ever Grammy Awards as an official nominee. There is a lot to unpack here, so let’s get

A snippet from Porter Robinson‘s upcoming GQ Japan March edition revealed the Virtual Self creator is planning a new project. After his unique production pivot to Virtual Self in order to celebrate techno sounds inspired by late ’90s and early 2000s dance music, one can only imaging which direction the inspired visionary might go. This news dovetails nicely with Porter’s Grammy Award nomination for Best Dance Recording of “Ghost Voices” made under his Virtual Self moniker.

On Sept. 8, Porter performed a sold-out show at Extended Clubsystem in LA. The set was an hour and 45 minutes long, and he played a new song, “God Rays,” which was thankfully captured on film. While luring listeners with wide, lush synth chords, Porter flips the switch and drops hard techno.

As a dance music taste-maker, producer Notaker demonstrated his skills in this exclusive mix for Dancing Astronaut‘s mix series, The Radar. Since early 2018, the St. Louis native has derived support from some of the most respected labels in the game, taking shelter at mau5trap for his debut EP Erebus I that peaked at No. 6 on the iTunes top electronic albums chart. In addition, he’s seen increased success with the Vancouver-based imprint Monstercat, a relationship he forged to release his latest single, ” Into The Light” featuring Karra.

This mix will guide listeners on a “sonic journey,” as he explores a diverse arrangement of sounds within the “electronic spectrum.” Kicking things off with “Into The Light,” Notaker maintains a balance between light and heavy bass music, including the REZZ remix of Porter Robinson‘s “Divinity,” the 2017 Flume hit “Hyperreal,” k?d‘s show edit of “Find Paradise,” a collaboration from up-and-comer 1788-L featuring Totto on “Full Burst,” and more.

Notaker’s latest single is out now on Monstercat.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

Listen in playlist format here.


Metal and electronic music have been colliding more and more as of late. This collision takes many different forms, including artists like Matt Lange putting their own spin on the instrumentals of a song originally fueled by rock elements. Lange has taken Periphery’s “Lune” and leaned into its subdued beauty, crafting a minimalist backbone of warped bass and a dreamy guitar melody that drifts softly throughout the course of the remix. He allows Spencer Sotelo’s vocals to take center stage in his remix and has crafted a perfect atmosphere to complement Periphery’s original.

Notaker‘s off to an incredible start of 2019. His latest, “Into The Light,” pairs beautifully with its accompanying artwork, which depicts a shadowy forest highlighted by beams of sunlight. Karra‘s heavenly vocals set the scene, leading listeners into a gradual build before dropping into a booming melodic drop. Chirping birds and atmospheric layers of synths create an environment that’s both serene and powerful, as Notaker demonstrates his strong command of sound design.

Far Out’s “Worlds Apart” is what today’s future bass wishes it could be. Much like Notaker’s “Into The Light,” Far Out assemble this dreamy soundscape slowly, building gradually with lush beds of synths, piano, and strings. One could easily mistake this for an orchestral piece until just after the minute mark, when bass and drums enter to assert their dominance. “Worlds Apart” is a world within itself, full of mystery and anthemic melodies that make this a real showstopper.

And now, for a darker turn. Krayysh returns to Mad Zoo with a positively eerie remix of Shadient‘s “Leidenfrost.” He’s been making a name for himself on the Canadian label with his shadowy creations, only stepping briefly into the light for “Talk To Me.” Overall, though, his work takes a trippy, walk-in-the-woods-at-night tone, bolstered by glitchy bass and ominous melodies. His take on Shadient follows along this creepy pathway, pummeling listeners’ ears with haunting ambiance the entire way.

In a world full of endless “Shelter” remixes, it can be difficult to stand out. But REAPER is making his mark with daunting take on the iconic Madeon and Porter Robinson track by packing it full of bass and giving it an unexpected twist toward the end. The vocals have been pitched down in a way that’s a bit menacing, making the song feel more aggressive right from the beginning. With a drum & bass switch-up that takes over the last minute of the song, REAPER makes sure this remix is unforgettable.

Sunday Morning Medicine Vol 162, with ZHU, Mat Zo, Luttrell, + moreSMM 2400

Sunday Morning Medicine is a feature from Dancing Astronaut dedicated to the mellower side of electronic music. We bring you our favorite therapeutic selections—old and new—in attempts to alleviate the agonizing effects of a long weekend of partying.


Mat Zo is turning the key on our Sunday Morning Medicine ignition this week, with his funky, idealistic remix of a vintage Porter Robinson track, “Flicker.” Zo’s rendition, which Robinson himself dubbed one of the best remixes he’d ever heard in his life, is full of wispy percussion and swirling melodies, erecting a city of celestial sound perfect for playing hide and go seek with responsibility.

Remixing an artist as colorful and inventive as Tycho is no small undertaking. But Anjunadeep‘s Luttrell (formerly one half of The M Machine) recently struck some sonic gold with his brand new “Epoch” re-envision, lending the track one of his signature chugging beats and preserving Tycho’s reverberating synth strums. Have a dance—or maybe just an extended sit—under Luttrell’s gleaming “Epoch”-al sky.

Here we have ZHU‘s ode to every painfully cool girl with a bad habit from a club locale nearest you. She lives lavishly inside the track’s cultivated wobble and sensuous, breathy vocals.

Manatee Commune’s newest, “My Dearest Friend” is a well-warranted spoonful of quixotic chaos. Instrumental, optimistic, and bouncy in all the right places, “My Dearest Friend” is here to eviscerate the residual alcohol-induced ringing in your ears.

Nothing lasts “Forever.” But tomorrow never comes for just over three minutes as Majid Jordan pulses through your speakers. You might just levitate as the duo’s illusory vocals and R&B tenderness breathe life into your tired weekend brain.

When news broke that REZZ was finally remixing one of Porter Robinson’s tracks, the world of EDM went crazy. Fans were excited with only the smallest details. Initially, we only knew that the remix would be of a track off of Porter’s (now) legendary album Worlds. Soon after the initial announcement, REZZ took to her

REZZ never shies from an opportunity to provide her fans with precisely what they’ve been craving. For her latest demonstration, REZZ has dimmed the lights on a feverishly beloved Porter Robinson production, “Divinity” from his iconically insurgent Worlds album.

REZZ’s commanding rendition of “Divinity” materializes like a malevolent stepsister. Glitchy and deliciously wicked, REZZ’s “Divinity” is like a fiery lullaby from the netherworld, as the track’s original, ethereal vocals and twinkling synth allure give way to her thunderous and highly nuanced bass and percussion infusion.

Quite characteristically of the Canadian mau5trap talent, REZZ delivered on her Twitter intonations of the remix in under a week. Her patently expedient turnaround in the studio is evident in her packed release record in recent years, with back-to-back August album releases in 2017 and 2018 amid a wall-to-wall touring schedule.
