For the launch of the Porsche Taycan down under, Porsche Cars Australia has teamed up with DJ Gene Shill to curate an Apple Music playlist featuring a selection of the country’s best electronic music.
Search for Sunset Drive on Apple Music’s playlists, and a selection of songs will appear, celebrating the launch of the Porsche Taycan in Australia. Alongside more than 30 tracks is a unique instrumental piece called TAYCAN, which was created by Shill and samples the drive unit of the all-electric sports car. “My aim was to create something sophisticated, progressive, modern, unique, and hopefully unprecedented – all that the Taycan encompasses,” explains the DJ.
The Porsche Cars Australia collaboration is not the first time Shill has applied his musical genius to translate Porsche sounds into music. And just like cars, his creations evolve: “This time I was looking to create something sonically fluid, smooth and seamless to complement and enhance the driving experience. A truly immersive experience.”
‘Sunset Drive’ is the first locally curated playlist to be added to the global Porsche curator page on Apple Music. The playlist cover features the Taycan in front of the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House.
The playlist is accessible around the globe to Apple Music users as well as through the touchscreen display in the Porsche Advanced Cockpit of any Taycan with an active subscription.
