Porter Robinson

As if BBC wasn’t already doing enough showcasing the very best in the EDM scene, Pete Tong is taking it to the next level by streaming live sets. When I first saw that Porter Robinson was dropping an Essential mix live last night, I almost dropped my cup noodles. The entire hour I was on my feet because the pace never slowed. Banger after banger, unreleased material was flying around like seagulls at the beach. Incorporating over thirty tracks, Porter truly showed the world he’s a master behind the decks.

The quality isn’t flawless, but it’s pretty damn good for a live recording

Tijs Michiel Verwest, Stepping in and out of the spotlight since 97’, is one of the most respected producers in electronic music history. He released 5 studio albums, was titled “World’s Best DJ” on 3 separate occasions, dated a Dutch model and is better known under his alias, Tiesto. Spouting facts like a broken trivia fountain, I could gloat about his accomplishments for days.. but to keep it short n sweet, there’s an immense militia of trance warriors that would courageously follow him into battle, the man has an army.

Tiesto is the Meca for house lovers. When word broke out that Big T would ride through town on his dazzling white stallion, people started raging. The windows of IV viciously shook, not from pounding techno music, but from fist pumping induced atmospheric depressurization. So I didn’t want to go.

Long story short, I was offered a reasonably priced ticket the morning of the show.. and I can never say no to a good bargain ^_^

So I went.

A smile as big as the moon gleamed off my face as I neared the illustrious SB Bowl. Excitement coursed inside me like liquid electricity. This was a beautiful moment.

Despite my glowing positivity, #collegeinvasiontour shat on my face.
· I got there at 8pm, Tiesto was already spinning. dafuck? I was expecting this guy to wake up the sun with me.
· Fire marshall was posted with the volume knob in his tight grip. There was no bass. I blindly scavenged through crowds in a desperate search for just a little taste. The place was wobless.
· Security was unnecessarily heavy. I couldn’t even bust a move without a yellowshirt breathing down my neck.
· His set was SO bland. Avicii’s Levels, really? I’m paying 50 dollars, give me something FRESH. Lets be real, Kaskade did it better.

Tiesto, I thought you were the best? I was ready to embark on a journey; instead you gave me Hypem’s top 10 of the summer. You’re milking that retirement fund like a champ.

I thought my night was dead and buried, but then out of the cold, thick air, I received a magical text. Porter Robinson was to play an inconspicuous private show in my neighbor’s backyard. My friends were sure it was a hoax, but low and behold the boy prodigy made an appearance.

About a hundred people on a beachside balcony, probably the most intimate show I’ve ever been to. Everyone was sippin on glass brews and blunts were in roto like free candy. I kept trying to pass the bleezy to PR, but he was vibed out, completely engulfed by the music. The set was flawless, the crowd was rowdy and the night was salvaged.

Here’s a new filthy remix of Porter Robinson‘s The State, courtesy of SKisM. The British producer goes bonkers on your cerebellum with 2 and a half minutes of w0mps and bass. This one’s set to release on Skrillex’s semi-mysterious new OWSLA record label (looking forward to what kind of talent he accumulates on there). Check the insane original mix (live) and the remix below.

It’s 2011, you know what that means, we only have a year until the grand cycle of evolution will culminate winter solstice… humanity will face inevitable demise. Fortunately for you, I’ll be supplying fresh beats all year; when our atoms spontaneously implode on 1/1/12, our feet will be shuffling and our faces smiling.  Here’s to another year of treble, mid-range, and of course, w0mp.

Feed Me (aka Jon Gooch) joined forces with legendary mau5trap recordings back in 2008. Gooch has been periodically releasing remixes, however, his eager fan base was hungry for more. Gooch finally delivered the main course and, what a delicacy it is. Gooch went all out on this one, I’m talking steak, potatoes, french fries, cornbread… the whole nine yards. Interestingly, Feed Me’s EP has so many different influences; Skrillex bbqed the steak, Porter Robinson mashed the potatoes, Busy P battered the fries and Feed Me thew in his flavor with a dash of cornbread. So many shapes would normally feel overwhelming, but Feed Me fuses dub, glitch and house in a barrage of savory beats. My compliments to the chef.

Every Track On Feed Me’s EP ‘Feed Me’s Big Adventure’ receives Chronic Mncher’s stamp of approval.

Home of the deep-dish, Italian mafia and shitty baseball, Chicago is sketchbawlz. Thankfully, through the thick murk there is a beacon of light, a savior. Over the last year he’s produced over 30 tracks and just recently, he’s been signed to a solid up and coming electro label, Big Fish Recordings (Porter Robinson, Lazy Rich, Hirshee). Hailing straight out of the windy city, 20-year-old Lucky Date is changing the game, as we know it. Saucy builds, ruthless synths and heavy bass; this shit is F1LTHY.

What’s the difference between Lucky Date and the Cubs? At least one of them can get a crowd on their feet.

Frederik Olufsen – Awesome Vibes (Lucky Date Remix) <-♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ funky

Lazy Rich – Discofukkr (Lucky Date Remix) <-♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Spencer & Hill – Dub Disco (Lucky Date Remix) <-♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ the drop at 4:00 = :)

This kid is only 18 years old and he’s killing it; I thought North Carolina was a shitty excuse for a state, until now. Porter Robinson started producing beats when he was only 13, now he’s signed to a label and touring the world. Electro synths tailed by quick raunchy dub samples; it’s like bikini wrestling in a Jell-O pit, the best of both worlds. Robinson is a boy prodigy, meet Wolfgang Gartner’s successor.

Porter Robinson – Say My Name <-♥♥♥♥
Heiko, Maiko – Wer Ist Sie? (Porter Robinson Remix) <-♥♥♥♥
Porter Robinson – I’m On Fire <-♥♥♥♥
Porter Robinson – Get Brain <-♥♥♥♥♥

BONUS: White Panda coming through with another head bobber
White Panda – We Be Barbra Streisand (Duck Sauce // Gucci // Lil’ Wayne) <-♥♥♥♥
