What Are Gorillaz & Soulection Up To?

Gorillaz Soulection

Gorillaz have been very active this year as they’ve been teasing cryptic content leading up to their long-awaited forthcoming album. Following up various multimedia stories and a recap of the band’s history, their latest mysterious post comes from their cartoon guitarist Noodle’s Instagram where he shares a photo of Soulection's logo. 

Gorillaz doing something with Soulection is one of the best surprises we've heard all year. We’re big fans of what Soulection does as the tastemaking LA-based collective/label has had a number of impressive milestones including working with Red Bull and getting a weekly slot on Apple’s Beats 1 Radio. The label potentially working with Gorillaz could be one of their biggest feats yet.

Noodle’s Instagram post tags both Soulection and Giles Peterson who will host the next edition from Soulection Radio this Saturday, Oct. 22. The post includes music note and radio emojis, perhaps hinting to new music being aired on the program...who knows! Tune into the radio show on Saturday from 7-9pm PST and enjoy!

Porter Robinson Madeon

This past summer, Porter Robinson and Madeon shook the world with their uplifting, melodic "Shelter" collaboration that was assisted by a major fall tour announcement. Today, they've shared an animated video for "Shelter" that is written and executive produced by Porter himself. He considers this "one of the most important days of my life". See below for an explanation of the official music video. 

"'Shelter' tells the story of Rin, a 17-year-old girl who lives her life inside of a futuristic simulation completely by herself in infinite, beautiful loneliness. Each day, Rin awakens in virtual reality and uses a tablet which controls the simulation to create a new, different, beautiful world for herself. Until one day, everything changes, and Rin comes to learn the true origins behind her life inside a simulation."

Japanese culture, and anime in particular, have always played an important role in Porter Robinson's career. His deep appreciation and love for the culture truly comes to life in this video. Watch it below and enjoy!
