The mighty return of La Roux this week threw the interwebs into a frenzy and nostalgic panic. “Let Me Down Gently” brings back memories of early brostep remixes and sweat, but Portrait has something else in mind. Remixing the track into a chilltrap take of his own, Portrait provides the version we’ll be making memories with this year.
Portrait has a way of transforming all he touches, and his originals and work with KRANE are showing a brand new side in 2014. Be sure to pick up this remix for free download.

Nature is the ultimate artist, because it’s not trying to make art or impress anyone. Nature just sets a few simple aesthetic rules in motion (aka physics). In this case - some fast moving water through a fracture in a limestone formation outside of Page Arizona. #natgeotravelpic (at Secret Slot Canyon, Page, AZ)
Why do they all (myself included) take the same photo, in the same place, from the same spot? What is the motivation behind that sense of identical photographic achievement? #natgeotravelpic
More synth porn in the works. It’s a dirty job but somebody has to be the fluffer. #synthporn (at Page, Arizona)

"Holy hell this is wild. Come on P.ortra.it and KRANE. There are rules to music. You can’t jump around different styles and tempos without warning. Don’t you guys know anything about music? The flow is much too complicated; and haven’t you even heard of consistency? These are things we might say if we didn’t like our electronic music served on a platter of weird, mixed in with a little uncanny. “Kontrast” stays true to the title, taking listeners on an abnormal progression of crashing drops and unexpected switch-ups with just enough melody to even things out. The San Franciscans are onto something with this, and we have a feeling you’ll be seeing more of them in the near future.”
