I still remember when French producer Madeon made his break out move with a launchpad and his live Pop Cuture mashup. Since then, he’s become one of the preeminent electro house producers in the scene. San Francisco’s very own Justice Skolnik, a gifted rising producer in his own right, has paid tribute to Madeon by giving his hit single You’re On a fluorescent glittering, slick springing future bass meets electro house remix. It’s a dance inducing escapade with prismatic chords that we could all use to kick off the long week ahead. Grab the exultant remix for free, here.

Porter Robinson and Madeon’s Shelter will obviously go down in electronic music history as a timeless classic and one of the seminal dance tracks of the decade. As such, we’ve had plenty of remixes crop up from all sorts of musicians and producers, but none have sounded quite like this one from KRILLA, a production project from Toronto. He explains that he wanted to remix one of his all time favorite tracks to show it some respect. KRILLA even adds in a little psy trance (which brings back good old memories for me) on his dark and menacing yet wickedly exhilarating edit. It’s a bass trilling tech and dubstep exposé that takes us on an intergalactic adventure, where we’re ready to battle anything that comes at us out of the mysterious void of deep space. You can snag the stand out remix, here. For another taste of this Toronto artist’s edgy electronoic music, stream KRILLA’s original, Lunatic, below.

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.

A relatively unknown New York act, 18 year old Ruchir gives me the bubbly-soul-filling sensation that a Madeon and Porter Robinson show brings. His new track, ‘Sleepless’, features Emma Sameth.

I’m still kicking myself for having had to miss Porter Robinson and Madeon’s now legendary tour together, since I was out traveling when they played their sold out shows in San Francisco. From all accounts, it was magnificent. The show seems to top many fellow music heads’ best of the year lists. Though I missed the Shelter Live Tour, reddit using fans of the production heavy weights have recreated some of the magic through a sensational mashup of Porter and Mat Zo’s Easy and Madeon’s Pay No Mind, featuring Passion Pit. TheDialol and Kyllian1212 offer up seamlessly fused Pay No Mind x Easy and deluge us with a tidal wave of luscious disco, ebullient electro, and vivacious progressive. I’m left wondering if Porter and Madeon will ever tour together again. If not, maybe we can have our own intimate dance parties. After all, we have this mashup to play on loop all night. I wouldn’t complain.

Though I had a jolly good time visiting Vietnam and Cambodia last month, one of my greatest regrets during my wanderlust indulgence was the fact that I had to miss Porter Robinson and Madeon’s sold out performances whilst on tour in San Francisco. I can only imagine how legendary the two production heavy weights were on tour together. At least I can find momentary solace in a fresh new remix of their collaborative hit, Shelter, by British producer Mat Zo. Shelter gets a complete makeover under his fine tutelage, turning into a dreamy ambient, sunkissed breezy progressive house track. Golden washed bongos lull us deep into the jungle before chunky synths and bursting beats rev up the energy level on this magical carpet ride through the cosmos. Mat Zo captures the beauty of the original to the tee but in a very different manner with his remix.

After having two stellar nights at The Bill Graham in San Francisco, I find this future gem of Porter Robinson and Madeon’s ‘Shelter’ by Irvine product Fook. The synth’s and drums conjure images of Tron-like beings having their systems reprogrammed. I’m not complaining though.

It’s likely you’ve already watched the new music video that surfaced today for Porter Robinson and Madeon’s massive collaborative effort, Shelter. But it’s also more than likely you want to watch it again, anyway. Porter himself created the story for the anime film, a visually stunning, deeply moving story about Rin, a 17 year old girl who lives in a futuristic simulation in complete isolation, stuck in perpetual loneliness. She awakens each day in that virtual reality and uses a tablet to create new worlds for herself, but then things take a poignant but sweet turn. This is a brilliantly fashioned music video that will leave many eyes misty. The video, its story, and its exquisite animation are a perfect fit for Shelter’s dreamy wistful, satin ethereal tone. And it’s likely adds fuel to the excitement inferno burning within many fans still waiting to catch Porter and Madeon on tour together.

One can always expect sonic brilliance and some tantalizing thrills from Luca Lush. He also seems to be one of the most prolific producers of the moment, considering what feels like a never ending steady stream of new jams, each one as high quality as the next. For his latest spellbinding presentation, Luca Lush takes on Porter Robinson and Madeon’s mega collaboration, Shelter, giving it chunky bass, sprightly beats, and quivering synths. Luca Lush pulls in a myriad of genres into his hyper active remix, from dubstep to hardstyle to future trap to electro. This is a roller coaster Shelter with some dark, savage moments, certainly not a demeanor we normally associate with either Madeon or Porter. Luca Lush’s high powered remix is a free download, here.
