The enigmatic Melbourne producer, Christopher Port today shares his new single ‘Find A Way’, another upbeat cut of club-filled euphoria. This follows the release of his “unashamed dance floor-filler” ‘DTF’, the first track lifted from Port’s upcoming Everything In Quotes “LIGHT” EP which has received nods formXLR8R, Resident Advisor, Pilerats, Double J, Linda Marigliano (triple j) and more and been described by Anna Lunoe (Beats 1) as “riding that perfect sonic balance between future and classic”. Listen to ‘Find A Way’ here.
‘Find A Way’ also comes with an accompanying video, highlighting the forthcoming EP tracks and doubling as its own unique rolling look-book showcasing the producer’s follow-up fashion line with his own brand of “LIGHT” jackets available for sale as as a limited, one-off item now.
Of the jackets, Christopher Port says, “These jackets are essentially me building on something that was already there. The “DARK” tops were handmade from start to finish, they were more of a reflection of my love for artisan, handmade fashion. On the opposite side these jackets reflect my love of street wear and street culture. They are more like street-wear ‘edits’. They are jackets that existed before and I’ve just added on to them. This reflects the millions of kids around the world that customise and add on to there clothes to make them individual. This is what I’ve tried to capture with the “LIGHT” jackets.”
Christopher Port’s Everything In Quotes “LIGHT” EP is set for release this Aug 3 via Australia’s leading independent tastemakers, Future Classic and Pieater.

LOVE FOR ‘DTF’
“Todd Edwards-indebted vocal chop euphoria for peak time…”
“Ooo I love this. Riding that perfect sonic balance between future and classic. Not fucking easy.”
Anna Lunoe (for Pilerats)
“…‘DTF’ goes straight for the jugular, marrying chopped vocal samples and busy hi-hats. The synths blasts hit with a force, and the synchronisation between them and the hi-hats are a thing of beauty, an example of Port’s skill as both a producer and an arranger.”
“Much like EVERYTHING IN QUOTES “DARK” highlighted the producer’s self-assured direction and reflection of who he is as an artist and more, Port is ready to do it all again with a different lens this year.”
“This house-driven track is an exciting cut from his Everything In Quotes “LIGHT” EP, due out on Future Classic via Pieater on August 3rd, which flips the usual, mellow electronica we register with Port’s catalogue on it’s head and shows us something crafted a little more for the club.”
