Just in time for the weekend, musician Chet Porter graces us with a vibey remix of Kailee Morgue’s evocative "Medusa." Recently coming off a tour with duo ODESZA, including sold-out shows at The Greek Theater and the Staples Center, as well as arenas in Las Vegas, San Diego and Santa Barbara, it’s clear now more than ever that Porter is an artist on the rise with no intentions of slowing down.

"I was on tour with ODESZA a few weeks ago and had a day off in Santa Barbara, so I went and got some coffee and a bagel and then just wrote the entire thing in my hotel room that day," Porter recounts. "I love Kailee's voice and felt like making something fun (as usual), so I thought it would be cool to take her kind of haunting original and turn it into an upbeat, light hearted, indie-dance tune."  Bagels and brainstorming? My kind of guy.

19-year-old Kailee Morgue first teased out the now viral track "Medusa" last January via Twitter with immediate success, garnering over 100,000 'likes' overnight. Now, "Medusa" has skyrocketed to the no. 2 spot on the Hype Machine Viral Chart and has been conquering the likes of Spotify and Soundcloud alike.

Check out the remix below.
