Melbourne-based producer Christopher Port today shares his new track ‘DTF’, the first single off his forthcoming follow-up EP Everything In Quotes “LIGHT” out via Future Classic / Pieater on August 3. “DTF is a straight up club track”, says Port. “Lots of kicks, nothing heavy, just lightness, eyes closed, bodies moving.” Listen here.
‘DTF’ follows the release of the globally embraced Everything In Quotes “DARK” EP, that saw spins across FBi Radio, triple j, BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music and festival plays at Splendour In The Grass, Falls Festival and more. Along with the release of Port’s accompanying debut fashion line, 2017 saw Christopher Port break out as one to watch with his melody-driven, genre-bending production that pays tribute to UK Garage and Melbourne’s own rising electronic scene, and is at once unpredictable and methodical.
This August will see the release of the second and final instalment of the Everything In Quotes releases by Christopher Port. The releases are named after a concept by Virgil Abloh, inspired by fashion, street wear, club culture, aiming to remove the “who-did-it-first” mentality some people have in regards to art – instilling a sense of irony, removing all dogma and generally not taking things so seriously.
Port shares, “Interaction and collaboration with the musicians, designers and creatives around me, this is my favourite way to make anything and to have it be a clear reflection of who I am and the world around me. “Light” is a record that does just that. It is “Light” in every sense of the word, just as “Dark” was in every sense of that word. The tracks on both records are meant to momentarily fill a space and then disappear, leaving a sense of lightness/darkness to varying degrees and in whichever way the listener wants.”
‘DTF’ is out now, buy/stream it here.
