19 year old buzz maker and enchanting chanteuse Kailee Morgue made a big splash in the new pop music scene when she released her long teased debut single Medusa, an airy saccharine, mellifluous trickling gem that immediately put her front and center on our heat seeking radar. Toronto producer Chet Porter, who I was fortunate enough to witness lay down an amazing set at one of Odesza’s sold out shows in Berkeley just a couple weeks prior, has given Medusa a transcendental re-fix that brings out Kailee Morgue’s sweetly alluring, chiffon sheer voice even more. Chet Porter gives the song a robust jolt with his rolling synths and whirring beats, but he also dusts the song with sparkling beauty. It’s an indie dance approach that will certainly spruce up your day and give you a moment of much needed carefree joy. Chet Porter will be bringing his music to the Independent in San Francisco when headlines on February 16th.

We love Louis The Child’s Love Is Alive for many reasons. First of all, it features Elohim on saccharine guest vocals. Secondly, its diaphanous swirling future pop is pure magical bliss, the exact sort of dreamy lush, woozy intoxicating treat to lose yourself in on a hot summer’s day. I could go on and on about the track from the red hot Chicago duo, but let’s turn our attention towards one of a few magnificent remixes that surfaced today. Toronto native Chet Porter has transformed the song into an extra balmy future bass spectacular fitting of the torrid holiday weekend we’re about to embark on to close out the summer. Its a refreshing dose of tropics hued future beats and glittering chill trap that evokes Jai Wolf and Odesza. Chet Porter gives Love Is Alive an airy buzzing, radiant sparkling lift that leaves us feeling more than alive. I can’t wait to catch Chet Porter at the Greek in Berkeley when he hits the road with Odesza this fall.

It’s only Tuesday morning, yet the week already feels drawn out and long. The weekend can’t seem further away. But suddenly, everything seems rosy and joyful, hopeful and merry, all thanks to this uplifting remix of D.R.A.M.’s hit single Broccoli, featuring Lil Yachty. Chet Porter bathes us in a warm glow with his airy sparkling re-invention. Broccoli has become a ray of brilliant sunshine. That light splinters into a vivid rainbow when met by the painted shards of Chet Porter’s intricate remix. A plethora of breezy chimes and a myriad of sprightly synths dance and flicker playfully. Chet Porter has crafted an enchanting remix that’s even more up my alley than the fine original. His ethereal future beats re-make is out now via Big Beat White Label. It’s a free download, here.

I can literally feel myself fill with sparkling wonder has I take to the cosmos alongside Chet Porter, lifted by the Toronto producer’s weightless floating, bright twinkling new song Stay, featuring soft feathery vocals by Chelsea Cutler. Chet Porter navigates a line between Porter Robinson and Odesza with his ethereal gem. Stay is like morning dew upon my ears, pure and unblemished, fresh and youthful. I can see the world and all of love’s complications with innocent eyes. Nothing is that complex, everything is really quite simple. Your heart is the center of all. Stay is available now from iTunes.

After what seemed to be a short bureaucratic delay of sorts, I’m elated that I can finally share with you this wondrous remix of Galantis by Chet Porter (again, not a side project of Chet Faker or Porter Robinson). The brilliant Toronto producer gives Galantis’ smash hit No Money a heavenly makeover. I literally feel like I’m frolicking with angels and dancing on clouds when Chet Porter sweeps me away with this pixie future beats lullaby. Its soft chimes, magical flutes, and airy beats sprinkle me with glittering fairy dust . Chet Porter is the Peter Pan to the little girl that still resides in my heart. He takes me to a fantasy world where imagination runs free and wild.

Just yesterday I was zealously sharing a remix off of the brand new It’s Strange remix album, a huge compendium of incredible talent re-imagining Louis The Child’s spectacular future bass anthem It’s Strange, which features the Bay’s K.Flay. All profits from the remix package, which will be out on January 15th, will be donated by Next Wave Records to a charity organization named Kiva. As the release date for the album approaches, more remixes are being revealed, with one of the latest being a chipper, chime-centric edit by Toronto’s Chet Porter. His whimsical adaptation brings me back to my childhood. I’m brought back to those long afternoons playing old school video games with my friends, so young and reckless, bright eyed and full of innocence. Pre-order all the It’s Strange remixes on iTunes.

Closing it out with a more gentle, lulling treat from Chet Porter, who, once again, is not a side project of Chet Faker or Porter Robinson, just to be redundantly clear. The producer offers up a breathtaking chill trap remix of Dutch producer Hitmane’s ethereal electronic song Over U. Despite the sweeping serenity of Chet Porter’s effervescent transformation, his Over U is slightly more fidgety and considerably more whimsically magnetic. The “oh my gosh” voice sample partway through may have come off cheesy if the track were not spectacular, but instead, my heart literally stops at that moment and I feel exactly what that sample encapsulates:  awe and elation. Download the remix for free, here.

Whenever I see the name Chet Porter, I’m reminded of my very first encounter with his music and his blurb on Soundcloud, where he wrote “not chet faker & porter robinson’s side project”. This much is apparent, as he follows up his incredible Porter Robinson flip from three months ago with a magically chiming and spritely remix of the Ember Island version of Jack Ü’s Where Are Ü Now. Sure, there have been plentiful remixes of this tune, both of its original Justin format and this Ember Island soother, but there’s no denying that Chet Porter’s feathery edit is one of the most beautiful ones yet. This one leaves me quietly sighing in the corner, missing someone, though I don’t even know whom. The feels are strong on this one, kids.
