The strength, time, and dedication, which go into pursuing a career as an artist, are not tasks that just anyone is willing to commit to. An artist is someone who fearlessly pushes the limits, willingly dedicates their life, and constantly explores the unexpected all in the name of perusing their dream. Arguably, everyone carries the ability to create art in some shape or form, but only few find the strength to pursue it as a career. Fortunately for all of us, Porter Robinson was one of the few who chose to take the commitment and become the caliber of artist that he is today. At the young age of 22, Robinson has successfully spread his incredibly distinct sound around the globe. Through smooth rhythm and unforgettable beats, Robinson creates a truly captivating sound which has done nothing but grow throughout his career. He’s effortlessly transcended the sub-genres of EDM; everything from Electro House to Trance, Porter Robinson has done it all; proving to music lovers everywhere that he holds the ability to cater to everyone’s music needs.
Porter Robinson drew inspiration from video games he’d play as a child; he didn’t draw inspiration from some concert or artist. He hadn’t even attended a show before he was booked to perform. A few years later, and he was making waves at the top of Beatport’s Electro House Charts.
Robinson’s significant growth in popularity over the past few years can be much attributed to his adoption of an incredibly diverse sound. Learning the importance of creating unique beats early on in the game has led to the release of multiple songs that have received much respect from listeners everywhere. In 2010, Robinson’s first single, “Say My Name” was released which then led to an opportunity of signing with Skrillex’s label OWSLA. Not only was this a monumental accomplishment, but it led to the release of other big hits throughout the year. Robinson’s name quickly became more widespread, and his steady growth of popular releases continues to prosper. In 2012, he released his single “Language” which is arguably still one of the most well-known, sought after, and loved dance floor hits to this day. One of the aspects which continues to make Porter Robinson’s music so adored is the fact that every song has a soul. Moving into 2013, Robinson continued on the path of growing as an artist and successfully released another single called “Easy” which he completed with Mat Zo.
Although seemingly successful throughout his career, nothing would be comparable to the success that would be achieved in 2014. On August 12th, he released his first studio album called “Worlds” which blew people’s expectations clear out of the water. This album captured the true meaning of being an artist and pushed through boundaries to prove to the world what Porter Robinson is truly capable of. Check out this track from the new album:
