Porter Robinson status amongst electronic music's elite is without question as the young producer prepares to release the studio album of his dreams titled Worlds on the prestigious Astralwerks Records. We've already heard tracks off the upcoming release, "Sea Of Voices" & "Sad Machines", but now see one of the most creative pieces of art and music combined as the highly anticipated single "Lionhearted" is delivered with quite the visual aspect as well after it's premiere on BBC during Zane Lowe's show. The cinematography on display showcases beautiful scenes of Porter and a gang of Harajuku ladies taking over the streets of somewhere in Japan adding color to the dull surroundings perfectly accenting the songs' tranquil synth patterns, and lively vocals from Urban Cone. The story culminates in a unexpected manner that will leave avid Porter Robinson fans stunned, yet could have a deeper meaning of his core fans backlash at his new sound. You can watch the music video below and pre-order Worlds via iTunes now! 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!

Willy Joy does the liberty of taking the smooth progressive electro house anthem “Easy” by Porter Robinson & Mat Zo and blasting it full of an edgier trap styled banger. The remix has some electro influence yet actually comes in at 140, dubstep speed. The track can’t really be contained to one genre other than sick.
