With light on the 5th anniversary off Porter Robinson's debut Spitfire EP, there's been a surge of remixes on the classic. From upbeat happy hardcore versions from Darren Styles and Gammer to modern future takes from the likes of Mielo, Porter's discography is a remix favourite.
Here adding his own twist to the resurgence of Porter mania is Ohio based producer Crankdat. The producer has an expansive musical style, that dabbles in a broad range of energies. Also known as Christian, the artist seems to dip his feet in all sounds from perky future bass, dirty dubstep and menacing trap styles. This flexibility has taken the producer far in success, especially with bangin' renditions of NGHTMRE's "Street" and Wiwek and Skrillex's "Killa" reaching impressive plays on Soundcloud.
Crankdat's version of "Unison" weaves the original through a dynamic metamorphosis. With a new almost demonic like vocal insert prevalent throughout the track, Crankdat takes listeners into a darker realm in his version of "Unison". The track goes from grimy dubstep drop and eventually seamlessly tapers into a sick drum and bass atmosphere. Through Crankdat's version of "Unison", he unveils a creative mosaic that samples a slew of electronic styles to engage listeners and throw in the unexpected.
"In honor of the 5th anniversary of Porter's 'Spitfire' EP, here is my re-crank of UNISON. I found this song in early 2013 and it served as a heavy influence on my sound's direction and focus while I was a total newbie. I decided to re-create it and record some vocals and other fun stuff to reimagine this classic beast." – Crankdat
