Following on from the highly-successful original release late last year, Mat Zo and Porter Robinson’s ‘Easy‘ receives a fresh coat of paint courtesy of a diverse remix package featuring the likes of Modek, Lemaitre and Botnek.
Maintaining much of the original’s vocal work and uplifting vibes, Modek’s ‘Bright As Day’ remix takes the lead with bubbly synths and swift hi-hats, turning ‘Easy’ into an upbeat House gem in it’s own right. In an equally stellar manner, elusive Norwegian duo Lemâitre are on hand with their signature vintage synths and feel-good vibes, leaving it to Botnek to round out the package with an electro house rendition.
Out today on Beatport.
Having taken their forward-thinking sound to the charts and back, elusive Norwegian duo Lemâitre return onto the radar with an official remix for Mat Zo and Porter Robinson’s ‘Easy’.
Touching on yet more of the rising producers’ maturely refined sound, this Electro-tinted remix showcases their signature blend of bubbly lead play and feel-good vibes. Bouncing off the vocals with uplifting melodic play and those vintage synth spots we now associate with the duo, ‘Easy’ is given a dignified remodel that extends the hysteria surrounding this evident contender for the throne of European House sovereignty.
Out April 14th.
Following on from the highly successful original release last month, Mat Zo and Porter Robinson’s ‘Easy‘ returns for round two courtesy of an official remix from Belgian producer Modek.
Maintaining much of the original’s vocal work and uplifting vibes, the first official remix of ‘Easy’ digresses from the peak-time stylings that pervade the original. Sailing through bubbly synths and swift hi-hats, Modek turns the acclaimed ‘Easy’ into an upbeat House gem in it’s own right.
Out soon on Ministry Of Sound.
Having both celebrated prolific years at the forefront of electronic music, American Electro advocate Porter Robinson unites with London’s Mat Zo to unify their developed studio dexterity for ‘Easy’. Originally a Mat Zo original that Robinson was keen to remix, this prolonged collaborative effort fuses Zohar’s aptitude for tightly woven melodic progressions with Robinson’s boisterous peak time hallmarks. Providing a well-rounded club track rich in uplifting energy, the first track to formally emerge from Porter’s recent collaborative run sets the precedent to an all-time-high alongside the fast-ascending Anjunabeats favourite.
Out today on Beatport.
Update (21/12): ‘Easy’ just hit #1 on Beatport.
Update (8/3): The official video has been released.

Handing the show over to a very select and stellar few up-and-comers from both sides of the Atlantic, last night’s episode of Pete Tong’s Essential Selection show saw Madeon, Otto Knows, Disclosure and Porter Robinson on hand with a four-part take-over.
In addition to discussing their steady rise to international acclaim, Madeon gives us some insight, Otto Knows chats with Burns for the first time and confirms that Alesso’s ‘Clash’ will be out next month, Disclosure turns back the clock with a couple of tracks from Fingers Inc and Joy Orbison, and Porter Robinson reveals some details regarding how his upcoming collaboration alongside Mat Zo came about.
Additionally, each was given the honor of picking their own Essential New Tune, resulting in that this week’s prestigious title fell in favor of Zedd, Alesso, Shadow Child and Mat Zo & Porter Robinson.

Premiered by Pete Tong on his Essential Selection radio show last night, American Electro advocate Porter Robinson unites with London’s own Mat Zo to unify their developed studio dexterity for ‘Easy’. Off the back of Robinsons’ chart-topping solo offering ‘Language’, his latest collaborative effort fuses Zohar’s aptitude for tightly woven melodic progressions with his own boisterous peak time hallmarks. Providing a well-rounded club track rich in moments of uplifting energy, the first track to formally emerge from Porter’s recent collaborative run sets the precedent to an all-time-high alongside the fast-ascending Anjunabeats favorite.
Due for release soon on Anjunabeats.
Update (24/11): A full stream of the track is now available.
Porter Robinson and Ministry Of Sound TV combine forces to release the official video of his latest single ‘Language‘ merely four months after its release. As directed by Jonathan Desbiens, the video is based around a woman attempting to outrun a pack of wolf-like creatures. While the storyline may appear a tad ambiguous upon first view, a closer look reveals that it flawlessly mirrors that of Heather Bright’s angelic vocal line. But its somewhat intricate storyline aside, the video plays out seemingly well to the track’s divine melodic progressions and makes for a nice change to the many forgettable music videos currently in rotation.
Buy the track on Beatport.
