Album: Damage Control (2013)
Charted: 28
  • songfacts ®
  • This collaboration between electronic music producers Mat Zo and Porter Robinson was released in the United Kingdom by Ministry of Sound as a digital download on April 14, 2013. It reached #28 on the UK Singles Chart.
  • The pair made the song in the back of the tour bus during Robinson's 2012 The Language Tour on which Mat Zo was a support act. Robinson recalled during a Reddit AMA: "Mat had made a version of the song that employed the same basic ideas and structure as our collab version, but without the lead melody, vocoder, second break, etc."

    "I asked him if I could remix it and he was like 'let's make a collaboration,' he continued. "I busted out a lot of my sounds from tracks like 'Language,' used all my mixing techniques, added the lead melody, vocoder, etc... I think the two versions sound really, really different from one another."
  • The track samples vocals from Clourblind's 1993 house track, "Nothing Better."
