In a new interview with Mixmag, Porter Robinson has spoken about why he didn't want to do a remix for Katy Perry. Seems like he couldn't stand the thought of making a paint-by-numbers big-room banger.
"I turned down doing a remix for Katy Perry and all the headlines read, 'Porter sticks to his dance roots' – but I’m not sure I have dance roots. The track just didn’t inspire me," the American told us.
"Those kind of functional, club-focused EDM tracks that are created to make people jump in stadiums are as uninspiring to me as bad pop music."
Maybe he didn't want to indulge Perry because he's currently pretty inspired by sounds emanating from indie. Telling us about his new LP, he said: "I’m listening to a lot of bands at the moment like Two Door Cinema Club and a Canadian band called Stars. I’m trying to collaborate with a lot of people from that world on this album."
