Porter Robinson & Madeon Deliver Anime Short Film For “Shelter” Music Video

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!

Porter Robinson & Madeon Share "Shelter" & Announce Collaborative Live Tour

Madeon - Porter

Porter Robinson and Madeon have unveiled their free-spirited collaboration, "Shelter". The song is rich in emotionally uplifting chords, high-pitched vocal chops -- brought to you by Madeon himself -- and glittery accents that provide a magical essence.

With respect to the collaboration, Madeon says:

“Both Porter and I started working with people in-person when we started making our respective albums and appreciated how much more collaborative you can get. Our intent was to make music that would reflect our friendship.”

Porter adds the following:

"I see enthusiasm and inspiration as the most important currency you can have when you’re making music. It’s this weird sensation of being drunk on your own confidence and excitement that leads to so many creative breakthroughs. That effect was really exaggerated when we were working together."

Moreover, Porter Robinson and Madeon will be taking their talents on tour for a collaborative live experience. The Shelter Live Tour currently consists of 17 dates with more to be announced. Presale tickets go live on Aug. 15 here

After much speculation and lots of hope Bassnectar has finally answered all fans wishes with his first ever camping festival, taking place in none other than Colorado, his national home base. After years of epic back to back nights at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater, he is now taking his band of freaks and bassheads to Dicks Sporting Goods Field, the same venue Phish has taken over for the past few years with great success.

The festival will be taking place on July 29th and July 30th and is sure to be an event no one should miss out on.

On top of the event being headlined by the man himself, the lineup has also been revealed to feature Flux Pavilion, Wu-Tang Clan, Flying Lotus, Porter Robinson, Lupe Fiasco, AlunaGeorge, Minnesota, G Jones, Dabin and Thriftworks.

We are sure he's bound to close out the festival both nights and most likely have a range of surprises up his sleeves.

Pre-sales have sold out.  

Public on sale is this Friday (1/15/16/).
