Some things in life just work: Milk and cereal. Beans and toast. Mat Zo (pictured right) and Porter Robinson (left). When these two work together it seems to be a sure-fire recipe for success, and Zo’s remix of Flicker now joins their monstrous collaborative hit Easy as explicit proof.
Zo’s Flicker flip represses all of the gutsiness and raw energy of the boundary-breaking original in the best possible way. This urbane take hollers out to old school drum & bass with a certain panache that only Mat Zo can deliver these days. It doesn’t stop there though; the final section takes Flicker and turns it into a dazzling searchlight of drumstep and D&B that Porter himself said was “one of the best remixes i’ve ever gotten in my life.”
This joins the Last Island remix of Fresh Static Snow as the only other official upload from Porter’s freshly announced Worlds remix album, although some of the other upcoming remixes have been put up from Porter’s live shows by fans on YouTube and SoundCloud. Good hunting. Porter’s Worlds Remix album is due out Oct. 2. See the complete tracklist here.
