CHET PORTER, “The Longest Day Ever”
Aside from remixes, an original Chet Porter release is becoming an event in the electronic and dance music genres. So a few weeks back, social media was all abuzz about “The Longest Day Ever”, the talented Canadian producer’s first release in about three years. Like when you first heard the music of Porter Robinson and Illenium, you’ll find that Chet’s music is both innovative and challenging. He seems to find that place in-between genres and fills a void that you didn’t even know was there. “The Longest Day Ever” is progressive electronica, essentially an instrumental with a classical-styled melody. When not basking in that melody, Chet fuels some big beats with powerful synth rhythms which will be head-turners at festivals and in clubs. Set your emotions to ‘open’ because “The Longest Day Ever” takes you on a 5 minute ride that you will hope will continue in some shape or form. I don’t think it will be another three years, so let’s listen for what Chet will bring us next.
