A-Trak shares sharp scratch routine of Porter Robinson and Madeon’s ‘Shelter’ [WATCH]

This post was originally published on this site

A-Trak‘s taste in music is generally a pretty solid barometer for what’s hot right now. He closely keeps up with fan favorite pop, dance, and hip-hop, but where he differs from the rest of us mere mortals is his ability to step behind Technics and a mixer and do something magical with the earworms he’s into. In the tail-end of the year, A-Trak has ramped up his video channel, frequently sharing short scratch routines and personal edits of the tracks that are in his rotation at the moment. He’s covered Chance The Rapper, Major Lazer, DJ Snake, Post Malone, N.E.R.D. and more, though his latest addition to the ‘#REALDJing’ video series is a flawless tribute to Porter Robinson and Madeon‘s sweeping success “Shelter.”

Clocking in at just a minute, A-Trak chops up the young superstars’ hit collaboration with his legendary Midas touch, finessing his way through immaculate padwork and scratch breakdowns. Not quite a remix, but rather an homage so to speak, A-Trak’s rendition of “Shelter” and obvious seal of approval for the next generation of dance music’s torch carriers.

Porter Robinson x Madeon – Shelter (Akari Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Porter Robinson’s new technic-utopian Virtual Self-reign is among us, but surely fans mustn’t, and likely will never forget about his seminal Worlds. 2016’s “Shelter,” too, embodied an unforeseen stylistic narrative. We even went on to name it one of the biggest tracks of 2016, standing at the No. 3 slot. Robinson and Madeon injected an unbeknownst, singular vision into the EDM ecosystem, which has since flourished, and gone on to birth an inconceivable number of artists in the track’s very wake.

Naturally, there have been many reworkings of the artists’ esteemed collaboration. The rising producer Akari is the most recent to have taken on the number.

Akari boats an impressive assemblage of remixes. From artists like Flume and Ekali to M83 and Flux Pavilion, his widespread track affinity is a testament to his effervescent creativity. In his latest fervent fury of future bass, Akari infuses new life into the seminal “Shelter,” which ensures that if its listeners do seek shelter, they do so in anticipation of his next release.

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.”

MUST LISTEN: Nick Gunner seemlessly intertwines Illenium & Porter Robinson on this heavenly mashup

This post was originally published on this site

Chicago-based producer Nick Gunner has made significant waves with his latest intriguing mashup. Having previously worked his magic on Zeds Dead and NGHTMRE‘s “Frontlines,” the rising producer truly steps up his game on his latest venture.

For his latest fusion, Gunner weaves Illenium‘s “Where’d You Go” and Porter Robinson‘s akin “Divinity” into a joint venture. The result is a match made in heaven. Indeed, the track’s share immense similarities, but on Nick Gunner’s mashup, one has to wonder how they’ve never been combined before.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 5

This post was originally published on this site

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer 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.

What’s better than a happy hardcore remix of a Disney song? Nanobii’s rework of “Go The Distance” from Hercules is everything you never knew you needed. It’s both tender and rage-worthy, transporting the listener directly back to their childhood. Lindsey Marie’s vocals fit in perfectly with Nanobii’s playful, upbeat take on the quintessential Disney song. Personally, I need to go rewatch Hercules right. now.

Since the release of “Shelter” a year ago, there have been a plethora of creative takes the iconic Porter Robinson and Madeon collaboration. The track has been converted into every genre imaginable, and future bass — being insanely popular right now — accounted for many of them. Here with a completely different future bass take on “Shelter” are Frankie Sanchez and vocalist Cenji, who have given the song a completely fresh feel. Cenji’s vocals are deep and haunting, and Sanchez complements the vocals perfectly with understated beats and a subtle piano. It’s a beautiful rendition.

I’ve been following Rob Gasser for a few years, and each release of his has impressed me more than the last. He’s developed so much as a producer, and I look forward to everything he puts out, no matter the genre. His latest is a drum & bass remix of Chime’s “Wait For It.” With a playful, Wave Racer-esque intro with trippy vocals and racing synths, he ushers the listener into a summer-splashed rework of the track. As a total sucker for drum & bass, I fell in love immediately.

Though Dancing Astronaut covered this collaboration when it came out, I can’t NOT plug it again. As a fan of Fox Stevenson‘s since before he was Fox Stevenson (Stan SB, anyone?) I have enjoyed watching as he releases songs of all genres and build up a loyal fan base. When he announced he had a collaboration with Ookay coming out on Monstercat, I was ecstatic. It’s every bit as good as I could’ve hoped for. With tantalizing vocals from Stevenson and a ear-catching melody, this is guaranteed to be a favorite of mine for months to come.

When No Copyright Sounds released Phantom Sage‘s new EP a few days ago, one track really stood out to me.”When I’m Gone” features a gorgeous piano melody and nostalgic vocals, and I can’t stop listening. The vibe of it is similar to a Madeon song, which is probably what drew me to it. Phantom Sage is ridiculously talented and has produced a wide range of remixes and singles that have all been astounding. The 19-year-old is one to watch.
