Porter Robinson and Madeon’s Shelter could very well go down as one of the timeless electronic classics of the 2010′s. In fact, every time I hear it’s chiffon melody, I already find myself overwhelmed with nostalgia, and it hasn’t even been long since the world danced to their hearts’ content to the song while the beloved production talents toured the world together. Today, we revisit its glowing beauty via a remix by Montreal’s Robotaki. The producer explains that the song will always have a special place in his life (as it does with so many of us). He goes on to say that Shelter has been an inspiration, even showing him the “richness of music and beauty of friendship.” Robotaki captures those emotions with his gorgeous remix, which takes off into the stratosphere with ethereal surging synths and a choppy radiance (plus an intensely shuddering ending that is far too enthralling). It’s a breathtaking edit that stays true to the original yet launches us even deeper into the vacuum of space with our hearts filled to the brim with contentment and joy.
