One of the most exciting acts in dance music, Porter Robinson, has undoubtedly made strides in his career ever since he dropped his Worlds album. Now after an outstanding performance at Coachella over the weekend, he’s quick to the draw with a truly stunning remix of “The Thrill” by Nero, his fellow Coachella counterparts that also played a fantastic set out in the desert. For the remix, Porter traded the gritty bass-driven sounds for something more suitable for his own vibe – an intricate arrangement of ethereal atmospheres, mid-tempo rhythms, and striking, bubbly synths that break through like a bull through the hall.

Porter Robinson nearly broke the internet earlier this month with the release of “Sea of Voices,” which comes as the first single from his much-discussed, DJ-defying album, Worlds, seeing release this spring on Astralwerks. It’s no secret, Porter’s creative process has changed with the production of the new record; producing and composing music that accurately illuminates his personal musicianship and taste rather than fitting the mold, so to speak, and making a record for the big room.

Remixes of the album, however, will surely tell a different story, and today, we’ve been given a listen to the maiden remix from Worlds from buzzing Interscope artist, RAC. Lending his signature Pop-infused sound, RAC uses light, bubbly synths and inviting guitar strums to carry “Sea Of Voices,” removing the M83-esque anticipatory build from Porter’s original while maintaining the integrity of the airy vocal. Listen to the beautiful remix below and pick it up on iTunes today.

Last summer the trifecta of Porter Robinson, The M Machine, and Mat Zo set out on a 2 month bud tour across North America, unleashing not only a wave of incredible music but also reflecting the energy fused from the 3 acts in unison. This 23 minute mini-doc depicts a great tale of life on the road, how everything comes together and how everything came to be.

ALSO – Big shout outs on this to our dear homies The M Machine on this tour who not only are still doing what we know them best for (5:36 – pedestrians hunting out good coffee) but also show everyone that they are their own roadies in every sense of the duty. PLUS – rockin the GDD shirt @ 9:16! When it all comes together, it made for a memorable summer tour that was like no other for these young and talented individuals.

Free Willy Wednesdays are back for 2013! Willy Joy and Gotta Dance Dirty are starting your year off right by giving you a brand new exclusive tune from Willy every Wednesday in January…for free!

This week brings one of the biggest dance tunes of the moment into Willy’s sights. Porter Robinson and Mat Zo‘s “Easy” gets a total makeover from the ground up. The sample sounds more wistful here, but when Willy’s remix drops, the tune turns into pure bliss. Giant waves of bass wash up against slippery synths and sharp percussion. As with Porter and Mat’s original, Willy’s remix has paid a lot of attention to detail. This sounds equally huge in a big club or in your ipod headphones. Enjoy!
