Porter Robinson is on the fast track to success. He is currently headlining festivals nationwide and he is preparing for the release of his debut album World's. As a gift to all of us, the young producer has decided to stream his album for free on NPR a week before its release. If you're a fan of melodic EDM, then you'll be a fan of World's. However, Robinson isn't interested in sounding like every other EDM producer out right now. He changes things up in World's to create unique sounds and textures.
Robinson told Billboard, “I wanted to do something that felt beautiful and emotional and that felt nostalgic.” He goes on to say, “I think it sort of employs the pretty vibe of the last couple songs I put out, like 'Language' and 'Easy,' but I wanted a vintage sound. Something that was a little more lo-fi-inspired. It has a bunch of weird tempos that dance people aren’t really doing. There’s no DJ-friendly intro and outro. It’s meant to be listening music. It’s not a party record at all.” World's, is definitely worth checking out. You'll be pleasantly surprised by what you hear. You can listen to the stream of World's here.
