The dance music community is still buzzing from the surprise release of Porter Robinson and Madeon’s huge collaboration and subsequent tour announcement, and now, A-Trak is back with a new remix to keep “Shelter” at the forefront of our attention.
A-Trak posted a video to Instagram in which he constructs a live edit of “Shelter” with quick flicks of the mixer fader and an on the fly barrage of triggered samples from the song. His renowned DJ’ing skills are on full display here, as he performs vinyl scratches and filter sweeps in real time, and the resulting performance is mesmerizing to watch. All performance elements aside, the remix is a worthy listen on its own merits.
Unfortunately, the performance video cuts out suddenly and will definitely leave you wanting more. As it appears to be just a live edit done for fun, it’s not clear if A-Trak‘s remix is intended for an official release or not, but we’ll keep our fingers crossed.
