Porter Robinson bio

Unlikely doesn't even begin to describe Porter Robinson's rapid ascent to the forefront of the world of dance music. Robinson began producing at the age of 13 using Sony ACID Pro, emulating sounds he heard from video games, especially the Japanese Dance Revolution. Hailing from North Carolina, 18-year-old Porter Robinson had never set foot in a club when his smash hit "Say My Name" shot to number one on Beatport's Electro-House chart, making people do just that on dancefloors and DJ booths across the globe. Complex yet catchy, and classic yet cutting edge, Porter Robinson's instantly recognizable sound has earned him the raving support of legendary producers such as Tiesto, Paul van Dyk, David Guetta, The Crystal Method and Armand Van Helden, and landed him shows across the globe—all before he has even had the chance to finish high school. At just 20-years-old, his talent had been touted by his peers (read Tiësto, Skrillex and Deadmau5) as one of the nu-breed saviours of electronic music, and having only experienced the limelight for a short amount of time, his achievements paint the picture of a bright future. 2011 saw Porter achieve what some do over the course of an entire career. He provided tour support to Tiësto and Skrillex, and also entered DJ Mag’s Top 100 and the Billboard Top 21 Under 21 chart. His Spitfire EP, which crashed Beatport’s servers on release, smashed its way to the #1 position in the process and held fort for two weeks. Add in a couple official remixes for Lady Gaga and Avicii, and one would think things could not get bigger for the young musician. However, 2012 saw Porter growing even further with appearances in top-billed slots on those same 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 constant radio spins around the world—not to mention #1 spots on the Beatport Overall and iTunes Dance charts. Robinson released his first full-length album in 2013.
