I’ve never intentionally listened to Porter Robinson and I’m pretty sure I’ve only heard remixes of his songs. But from what I can tell from the remixes, Robinson has a naturally upbeat and bubbly sound to his music. Just a couple days ago, he collaborated with French producer Madeon (Hugo Leclercq) to release new track “Shelter”. Longtime friends, Porter and Madeon wanted to make and share a song that represented their friendship – and if this is what their friendship sounds like, I’m absolutely jealous yet thrilled to find two producers that inspire each other in their own respective careers. With Madeon on vocals, “Shelter” is an inspiring pop-driven electronic track. And it kind of reminds me of Passion Pit’s more upbeat, pop music (coincidentally, Madeon came on my radar when he collaborated with Michael Angelakos on a song last year). 

Anyway, I’d say listen to this song if you want to hear what a solid friendship sounds like. It’s pretty damn inspiring.
