Porter Robinson - a 20-year-old talent who has been touted by his peers (read Tiësto, Skrillex and Deadmau5) as one of the nu-breed saviours of electronic music.
His achievements so far as a DJ and a Producer paint the picture of a very bright future.
2011 saw Porter achieve what only some can in an entire career. He provided tour support to Tiësto and Skrillex, as well as debut appearances at Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival and Electric Zoo that led to him entering DJ Mag’s Top 100 and the Billboard Top 21 Under 21 chart.
His Spitfire EP, which crashed Beatport’s servers on the day of its release, smashed its way to #1 and held fort for 2 weeks straight. Add in a couple of official remixes for Lady Gaga and Avicii, and one would be forgiven for thinking that things could not get any bigger for the young musician.
However, 2012 saw Porter growing even further with appearances in top-billed slots at the aforementioned festivals plus Coachella, Tomorrowland, Creamfields and Lollapalooza. He began residencies at XS and Surrender in Las Vegas, made a European headline tour debut, spun a live Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1, and released the hit single ‘Language’ to great acclaim and continual radio spins around the world – not to mention #1 spots on the Beatport Overall, iTunes Dance charts plus a Top 10 UK Chart hit!
His big 2013 release 'Easy'; a collaboration with UK DJ Mat Zo, is currently sitting high in club charts worldwide. And later in the year Australia will welcome Porter back with open arms as he tours festivals and clubs nationally.
We very much look forward to seeing you Porter Robinson
