Listen to the Porter Robinson remix he’s calling his “favourite ever”

If you’ve listened to Porter Robinson whir through 72 tracks in 120 minutes on his Essential Mix, you would have already heard at least a few seconds of the Anamanaguchi remix of Sad Machine. Today, you can listen to the full thing, courtesy of an upload to Robinson’s Soundcloud overnight.

New York chiptuners Anamanaguchi have made Sad Machine even bigger and brighter, and we’d wager you’ll like the results. Better yet, this one comes complete with the Porter seal of approval: “amanaguchi remixed sad machine and it’s probably my favourite remix i’ve ever gotten :’),” the Worlds producer tweeted this morning. Hear it for yourself below.

Want more? Just last week, Russian talent Arty put his spin on Porter’s new material and gave new single Lionhearted a club-ready remix, leaving much of the original intact while pushing up those anthemic builds and breakdowns.

The drip-feed of remixes should help to tide you over until Worlds drops on August 8, a release date that’s now just over a month away. “I think I’m in my favourite place with music, ever,” Robinson told BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe earlier this year, explaining that Worlds won’t be music-for-DJs. “I don’t feel the need to make people choose between EDM and my new music. I also don’t have any aspirations to change the game or change the genre at all. I just wanna make songs that I really like and I feel really good right now.”
