Porter Robinson took to Facebook today to drop big news. New York Times called it "gorgeous," NPR called "imaginative" and Rolling Stone called it "delightful." It was an album that brought a completely new exuberance to electronic dance music.
Now, Robinson's groundbreaking Worlds is receiving a full remix album showing off Robinson's keen tastes and style while showing off the adeptness of his favorite contemporary artists. The track-by-track remix companion to his Worlds album is part of his overarching vision for this highly conceptional project.
“I figured that one way to develop a unique identity as an artist would be to combine all my favorite things in music — it would result in a collective expression of my taste and experience. Something nobody else has.”
Featuring remixes from Mat Zo, Sleepy Tom, ODESZA and more, the 12-track remix album will officially release on October 2nd. The remix collection will serve as a companion to the LP, featuring a remix for each track from the album sequenced in the same tracklist.
The new remix album will continue to expand upon the unique aesthetic of the Worlds concept which appears in the form of a technologically impressive interactive and incredibly visual live show and - most recently - a clothes line in collaboration with Japanese streetwear brand Galaxxxy.
