Last April, Porter Robinson released one of the biggest tracks I’ve heard in my experience of listening to dance music with his single Language. From the soft keys and tantalizing vocals to the the unorthodox buildup and eventual powerful breakdown, I’ve had some of the best moments of my life with that song as the soundtrack. To support the single, Porter got on the road with The M Machine and eventual collaborative partner on the track Easy, Mat Zo for the Language Tour: a 30 show in 30 day road trip across the country. The Porter Robinson Language Tour Documentary chronicles Porter’s trip and really letting you get inside his head about topics such as family, his fans, his awesome tour crew and the inevitable super-stardom of his tour mates.

As the Mat Zo & Porter Robinson single Easy continues to be the gift that keeps giving with unofficial remixes from TNJ favorites like Willy Joy, today we get the official remix package from Anjunabeats with some huge chunes. We already brought you the remix from Botnek that Porter dropped during his set at Ultra Music Festival and you can add some great material from Modek, Lemaitre and Andy C.

Video Mat Zo & Porter Robinson - Easy (Original Mix)

It was only a matter of time before we were treated with the unveiling of the official video for Porter Robinson & Mat Zo’s monster crossover dance hit Easy. Turns out today was the day and we couldn’t be happier; the Japanese anime style video follows a girl on her escape from a smogged-ver industrial city to a beautiful cherry orchard that perfectly accentuate the feel-good vibe of the track.

The Ketchup Post – Willy Joy

The Ketchup Post - Willy Joy

When an artist makes their way onto ThisSongIsSick without me having ANY knowledge of who they are, both you and I alike need The Ketchup Post. Willy Joy hails from Chicago and he’s been tearing up everything from Lillapalooza to Mad Decent Block Party. His latest remix of Mat Zo & Porter Robinson’s Easy made its way onto TSIS last night and I was completely blown away; it would have to be categorized as a really melodic trap song but it seems to conquer a genre all it’s own. Releases like this are my favorite so I dug through his SoundCloud and found two of his other releases to give you guys so we can all do some catching up.

Mat Zo & Porter Robinson – Easy (CHANGE Bootleg)

easy porter robinson mat zo change bootleg

Add CHANGE to the list of remixers to take on Mat Zo & Porter Robinson’s Easy and his progressive reworking of the track gets a huge TNJ seal of approval. Playful synths build nicely to an explosive drop that is glitchy and choppy in all the right ways while the original melodies are retained in the perfect proportions to make this one recognizable and interesting all at once. Usual assortment of links below for this newcomer that we will surely be keeping an eye on.

Porter Robinson & Mat Zo – Easy (Bring The Noise Remix)

Easy Bring The Noise mix

Shouts to ThisSongSlaps.com for the find; I was wondering what kind of remix reaction we’d get to Easy, the Porter Robinson and Mat Zo collaboration that is taking dance floors by storm across the world and this is TNJ’s first sample. The LA trio of Bring The Noise has given this a trap remix that I keep wanting to describe as tasteful (?) although I’m not sure that’s the right word. They keep enough of the original to make sure it is done justice before Bring The Noise decides chops it up and adds some great 808 work. Definitely heading to the top of my arsenal in the coming sets that I play; it’s not like I need another excuse to drop a Porter track.

Mat Zo and Porter Robinson – Easy (Extended Mix)

Oh god it’s here. No radio rip no nothing, we finally have the full extended mix of the Porter Robinson & Mat Zo collaboration Easy. Originally debuted on the final edition of Trance Around The World, Ministry of Sound has placed the tune up on their YouTube page for all to hear before its unfortunately unknown release date. You hooligans can go rip this from YouTube yourselves if you’re so inclined; Mat Zo already warned that if you rip this and put it on Zippyshare, “Ministry of Sound might have to come to your place and take a dump on your welcome mat :).” I’ll pass kindly.

Porter Robinson & Mat Zo – Easy [TATW Rip Preview]

Porter Robinson & Mat Zo – Easy [Preview]

This serves as a fitting end to Above & Beyond’s legendary radio show Trance Around The World. I’m gonna assume that Porter Robinson & Mat Zo began this collaboration at some point on the Language Tour and I can’t wait for it’s January release on A&B’s record label Anjuanabeats. It’s got beautiful synth and build work that you know Porter meticulously worked on as well as a nice disco vibe.
