While his new album Nurture has been on pause for a while, Porter Robinson decided to grace fans with a brand new remix in celebration of his birthday.
He shared the Anamanaguchi remix of his track “Get Your Wish” straight off his second upcoming album, Nurture.
New York-based four-piece Anamanaguchi, are known for their tunes in the video-game world of Chiptune. They have created videogame soundtracks and leveraged their music to parody corporate gaming culture, relying on a combination of a loud and fast live band and square waves from hacked Nintendo hardware to create their specific signature sound.
In May of 2020 in the peak of quarantine times courtesy the Covid-19 pandemic, Robinson hosted his virtual Secret Sky festival which saw a bunch of noteworthy sets by the likes of Jai Wolf, Madeon, G Jones, and more. Anamanaguchi also coordinated a recorded-from-home live performance for Robinson’s Secret Sky festival.
Robinson used his part fo the live stream to reveal the third track off the unreleased album called “Look At The Sky.” The live stream was broadcasted via a digital auditorium built with state-of-the-art technology and attracted more than 4 million viewers.
It sure has been a while since we were blessed with Robinson’s debut album Worlds in 2014, but 2016 saw Robinson team up with Madeon on “Shelter” which was followed by a massive live world tour spanning 43 dates and 5 continents. 2017 then saw his artist alter ego Virtual Self come to life which also lead to him earning his first Grammy nomination for “Ghost Voices.”
Following the two singles off the album, “Get Your Wish” and “Something Comforting”, it only seems like a matter of time before we get a sneak peek into Porter’s vision for the new album. In the meantime, let this remix tide you over.
