Porter Robinson and Madeon’s ‘Shelter’ receives a live remix from A-Trak
Porter Robinson and Madeon surprised everyone earlier this month when they announced a joint North American live tour. The news was further sweetened by the addition of their first collaboration together, “Shelter.” The left-field pop ballad has already amassed millions of plays across streaming platforms and is sure to be in fans’ rotation for the foreseeable future.
Turntable maestro A-Trak has apparently taken a liking to the track. The Fools Gold champion shared a video of him performing a live remix of the song, writing “That new Porter Robinson and Madeon is like candy…”
The video shows A-Trak scratching over the intro while simultaneously launching vocal samples for his own live reimagining. Creating a buildup on the spot by looping and filtering the sample, his world-class abilities yield a glitchy, yet relentlessly catchy rendition. The clip ends all too abruptly, with fans already harkening for a longer, official version.
