#MusicMonday: Preview Porter Robinson's upcoming album "Worlds"12:08 PM
At only 19 years young, Porter Robinson has been making waves in the EDM community with kickass songs, remixes, and now, this album! I've been raving about his "Lionhearted" song after I heard it first on BBC 1 Radio, and went even more nuts for it after seeing the amazing music video (see below).
Since this is a post solely dedicated to Porter Robinson, here are some oldies-but-goodies that made him eunique to my ears & thus ultimately making him a household name in my book. What do you think of Porter's new sound? "Worlds" showcases an indie, Japanese deep house, almost orchestral aspect to it that I love. However, compared to his old remixes & sounds, his style has definitely evolved as he dapples with "the idea of an artistic signature...[where he] would much rather [be] an artist with a vision" (Billboard.com interview, 28 March 2014).
Right on, Porter. Be the hipster that you are, and fight the mainstream bangers hype.
Every song doesn't need a drop. Nor does it need a crazy build-up and ear-deafening treble shrieks.
As long as it's got a good rhythm, hip-shaking bass, and a beautiful melody, I'm sold.
P.S. Who's going to Porter Robinson's show at The Shrine Auditorium?? I didn't buy a ticket..but I usually decide these things last minute. Hmm...to go or not to go, that is the question..
Thanks for stopping by and have a musical Monday!
