Robotaki releases his remix of Porter Robinson & Madeon’s ‘Shelter’
It’s been just over a week that Madeon and Porter Robinson took the main stage at Coachella for one last performance of their Shelter tour. An incredibly nostalgic moment for fans of the duo, Porter and Madeon both made it public that it would be the last show from their joint effort, however, it seems the legacy of their collaboration, “Shelter,” may live on just a bit longer.
Slushii came forth with his unofficial remix that pleasantly surprised many, and according to a couple clues on the Internet, Robotaki may have his remix on deck. First off, he supported the dance titans on the Shelter tour last year across a number of North American dates, which could have easily lead to a discussion about the rising producer taking a stab at flipping the tour’s track.
The Montreal-based producer, then, earlier today uploaded a private SoundCloud embed only available on his website with the track’s cover art being a shot of him alongside Porter and Madeon. While a delicate piano melody plays atop a crescendo of atmospheric synths in Porter-esque style, Robotaki unsubtly places the infamous vocal chop from “Shelter” at the end.
Finally, after a small amount of digging, videos of Madeon playing a unidentified remix of the song at shows recently reveals the duo have unreleased remixes ready to roll. While its difficult to hear the video below, the remix played is much heavier than the original with speaker-filling 808s, which could very well be Robotaki. The profile that tweeted the video is also an avid Porter and Madeon fan who included ghost and Canadian flag emojis, which almost directly point to Robotaki considering he’s from Canada and has a logo resembling a ghost.
