Porter Robinson & Madeon’s ‘Shelter’ turns 2 years old

2 years have elapsed since Porter Robinson Madeon‘s colossal collaboration ‘Shelter‘ made its way into the hearts of fans all over the world. A mainstay on mainstages across the globe, the track proved to be a great success. While it didn’t necessarily set the charts on fire, the culmination of two of electronic music’s most intrinsically gifted minds garnered a gargantuan cult-like following and a spectacular world tour.

The collaboration between the two talented young artists was a long time coming, however, the outcome was indeed worth the wait. Using drum machines and launchpads, Porter Robinson & Madeon strived to deliver fans a truly authentic, “live” feel. The tour saw the duo perform 43 shows, over a 7-month span, and visited countries such as the United States, Canada, Australia, England, The Netherlands, France and Japan – the world’s anime capital.

The feel-good record was also accompanied by an entertaining anime. The anime for ‘Shelter’ was revealed two months after the release of the single. The project was produced in collaboration with A-1 Pictures and Crunchyroll, and features 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.
