This is our story...

“One of the best remixes I’ve ever gotten in my life,” Porter Robinson tersely yet profoundly states in the track description on Soundcloud for Mat Zo‘s remix of “Flicker” — the first of twelve remixes slated for theĀ Worlds Remixed LP forthcoming this October 2nd on Astralwerks.

In his new take, Mat Zo underscores his predictable unpredictability, leading the re-envisioned “Flicker” down a familiar filtered, Daft Punk-esque introduction top-lined by Porter’s text-to-speech robot before slamming into a wall of blinding synths. But this is only the first part of the journey, and of course Mat Zo flips us upside down with a double time sequence marked by DnB percussion and angelic melodies. Slowly the sharp percussion fades away, and we’re left floating through a bank of pixelated clouds — ready to relax for the remainder of the track. True to form, the Zo snatches back all of the built-up repose and shakes the earth with a snarling roar before bringing all of the remix’s elements together in one big, cohesive finish.

Mat Zo is a genius, and this remix is irrefutable proof. Listen in below and stay tuned for more remixes forthcoming fromĀ Worlds Remixed.
