As we wrap up the biggest summer festival season North America has ever seen, we start to prepare for some of the most exciting New Year Eve events to bring an end to 2014 in the best way imaginable. SnowGlobe, a music festival taking place in the gorgeous setting of Lake Tahoe, California is set to return for its 4th year. This year is easily going to be the biggest year the festival will have seen to date, largely thanks to the unreal lineup they have curated.
From headliners Skrillex, Flume, Disclosure (DJ Set), Porter Robinson (Live) and Zedd, to the top level acts like legendary underground hip-hop duo Atmosphere and DJs Flux Pavilion and Odesza help set the tone of the festival. Live acts Phantogram, Cherub, Emancipator Ensemble and The Floozies will help to mix things up while Bro Safari, Justin Martin, Thomas Jack, Trippy Turtle, Branchez, Djemba Djemba, Party Favor, Le Youth, J. Philp and Slaptop will help keep the DJ presence high.
This will be commencing over the December 29th – 31st weekend, and from attending years pasts, this is not one you should miss out on. Tickets for the weekend just went on sale and are available for purchase via SnowGlobe's website now.
Porter Robinson delivers the final single before his highly anticipated genre-shifting sophomore album Worlds is released worldwide in just weeks. We have seen Porter break outside of his bass heavy box he created from his first record right before our very eyes on this new release. With previous releases "Sea of Voices", "Sad Machine", and "Lionhearted" all expanding his musical style in their own way, keeping us guessing. "Flicker" shows similar qualities with a melodic blend of chill house elements, a dash of disco, quirky synth patterns, and knocks of electro act as the foundation with some chopped up Asian vocals sprinkled throughout. You can stream Porters' new track below in full and be sure to pre-order a copy of the new album before its August 12th release! Enjoy

Porter Robinson is one of the most exciting artists to come out of the seemingly stale side of big name dance music side in recent years and has captured the attention of many with the highly anticipated release of his second full length artist album Worlds. We've already seen two tracks unveiled as "Sea of Voices" and "Sad Machine" created an uproar of excitement internationally. The album is set to release through iconic North American dance imprint label Astralworks and will see Porter performing a series of shows in support of the album. The tour kicks off on August 28th in Vancouver and will run all throughout the US and Canada ending in Miami on October 18th. He is bringing out the very talented Norwegian live electronic act Lemaitre, who will be opening up the night through the length of the tour. Although the dates are far later in the year, with his track record for live shows selling out and added excitement of the new album I wouldn't wait too long to grab tickets when they go on sale this Thursday at 10 am MST.
Porter Robinson delivers the second single "Sad Machine" off his highly anticipated debut artist album Worlds set to release through Astralworks following up "Sea of Voices". We hear an electro pop side of Porter with some vocals from himself for the very first time, vocoded obviously. Listen to the song below and check out some words from Porter:
"I’d used Vocaloid as the vocals for several of the songs on Worlds, and then the idea of a duet between a lonely robot girl and the human boy who encounters her occurred to me. I didn’t have much time before I had to turn in the entire album, so I just sang the male parts. I wanted something that felt distantly sad, a little cute, surreal, hopeful, and maybe somehow evocative of fiction?" – Porter Robinson

Though little is known about Paris native producer LEVI besides an upbringing as a concert pianist and moving across the Atlantic to New York City, his crossover into electronic music production has captured our attention thanks in part to restructuring the energy of Porter Robinson's recent single "Sea Of Voices" and diverting it to a new genre. Casting an electro house synth pattern to the melody while keeping the originals chill feel present, LEVI's remix is creative and catchy in design and playability. With this serving as our first showpiece of his talents, we look forward to seeing what productions come in the not so distant future. Stream our exclusive premiere below and add this to your music library via a free download. Enjoy

Porter Robinson has just let loose the first single "Sea Of Voices" from his long awaited debut artist album Worlds. The song is a smooth chilled out atmospheric track that I don't think anyone saw coming. It definitely sounds like it could be the intro song to his album that sounds like is going to be quite the journey of a listen. The song is set to release March 3rd with no set date for the rest of the album coming out though Astralwerks. We will keep you updated as new details roll in. Enjoy!
Porter Robinson and Mat Zo’s monstrous collaborative hit “Easy” commissioned a few official remixes, including a standout drum and bass rendition from UK stationed Andy C. He brings in the tracks lightly altering the original by speeding it up and adding minor beefed up drums. Then around 1:30 he lets the listener gets a powefuly blast of signature drum and bass greatness still somehow keeping the overall happy nature of the original. It’s not easy keeping the essence of an original while making it so your own. You can pick up this incredible remix alongside the remix package including Botnek, Lemaitre & ModekBright As Day through Beatport below now. Enjoy!
Porter Robinson continued his rise to the top by playing on main stage at the first weekend at this year’s Ultra Music Festival. He brought an impressive set spanning from his older agressive electro house sound to his more melodic uplifting progressive side. As he stated “playing there was seriously one of my favorite things ever”, and this set shows. The mixing on this mix is through the roof packed with an unheard amount of different tracks featuring countless of his signature bootleg mashup edits. Porter has succesfully been able to transtiion from packed out small clubs to destroying the main stage at one of the world’s biggest electronic music festivals. He was nice enough to give out the free download, enjoy!
