Despite his proclamation that he is “not Chet Faker & Porter Robinson’s side project,” Chet Porter’s production talent flies in the same realm as that of the two artists. Released via Big Beat White Label, Chet Porter’s debut single, “Awakening,” tells the story of an animated character as he departs on a huge adventure. The character’s thoughts are beautifully captured in the video-game-like sounds, which all comes to a culmination after the character’s monologue. “Awakening” allows the listener’s imagination to run free, creating a character and a story of your own, as the Zelda-style flutes chime away and the layers synths weave seamlessly in and out of each other.
