Sometimes a track comes along that really is more than just music, it is a story. Porter Robinson’s Worlds album was hailed by most for being a beautiful and progressive piece of work as it broke away from the commercial “EDM” sound and boldly explored a new direction where music could be used alongside visuals to tell a compelling story to the viewers. His tour was breathtaking and was one of my highlights from 2014. However, now a remix of “Fellow Feeling” is causing flashbacks of the power that hearing Porter’s album for the first time, but in a completely different way.   tumblr_ngk5blQjNa1r7mpn3o1_500 The remix is dark, heavy, melodic and beautiful all wrapped up into one and really speaks to the narrative that Porter created with his music. There is such depth and complexity in this track. It is a bit startling and jarring at first, but then blossoms into something we can all understand and get into. Blending a harsh edgy style with beautiful Porter melodies has never been done to this caliber and really speaks to the power of Worlds. Check out the remix and let us know what you think about this track in the comments below. You can also download the track for free off of Shadient's Soundcloud.
