Porter Robinson: Sea Of Voices (RAC Mix)
When Porter Robinson revealed "Sea Of Voices" - the first track from his forthcoming debut album Worlds - during the Oscars via Twitter earlier this month, fans took note: "Sea Of Voices" trended #1 on Facebook as the awards show aired live that evening. The song - a gauzy and atmospheric offering that represents a major sonic departure for Robinson's previous work - saw more than half-a-million Soundcloud streams in a single day, later shooting to #2 on iTunes electronic chart, #5 on HypeM and #5 on Spotify's viral chart, eliciting comparisons to Sigur Rós, M83, and Orbital from fans and media alike.
Today Porter releases "Sea Of Voices" (RAC Mix), a poppier, synth-inflected take on the track from the highly-respected international Remix Artist Collective. The remix, which premiered via Jason Bentley's Morning Becomes Eclectic this past Friday, features playful synthesizers, precise electronics and the vocal hook placed front-and-center, with RAC's signature brand of intelligent synth-pop adding new dimension to the stunning setup single.
