Porter Robinson released his dazzling collection of cosmic EDM explorations Worlds, at the tale end of 2014. But in just a couple of weeks he’ll return with a collection of hand-curated remixes that send those tracks to other dimensions. He’s already shared Mat Zo’s nü-disco fix of “Flicker,” but today he returns with something a little more weird and watery.
“Sea of Voices” was one of Worlds‘ hazy ambient tracks, but Danish producer Galimatias drags Robinson back to the dancefloor, even if it’s one that’s a little loopy and waterlogged. Stormy synth lines upend Robinson’s static mist and give it a little movement, even if it’s just the gentle loll of the ocean.
In an email, Robinson told SPIN that Galimatias’ take “blows his mind,” but the Dane tells a different story.
“I don’t know what I was thinking picking “Sea of Voices’,” Galimatias explains. “The song is such a cinematic journey in itself; it could never be outdone in the feeling it evokes. So I had to take it in a completely different direction.”
Listen here in advance of the October 2 release of Worlds Remixed.
