Mat Zo has remixed Porter Robinson & Madeon’s ‘Shelter’
Since releasing “Shelter” and embarking on the single’s collaborative live tour, Porter Robinson and Madeon have proffered many edits to each other’s original songs. However, A-Trak is one of the only large artists to thus far provide a remix to the pair’s buoyant hit. Video footage from Mat Zo‘s November 11 show at San Diego’s Bassmnt reveals that the similarly prodigious talent has now crafted a revision to “Shelter.”
Mat Zo’s spin on the track begins on a more minimal note than the original production. Elegant keyboards and guitar chords provide the sole backdrop to Madeon’s vocal line, allowing the verses to stand out more brightly than in their original format. The song is an energetic progression, which evolves from the sedative opening verse, to a melodic house reworking of the song’s primary motifs, before concluding with a triumphant electric guitar centric peak.
