Chapel Hill, NC-based EDM wunderkind, Porter Robinson, is set to whirl electro-house devotees into a dance frenzy as he prepares to embark on a headlining bus tour across the US and Canada this summer. The nineteen-year-old producer has garnered industry nods and droves of fans after his debut EP Spitfire, released on Skrillex’s OWSLA, crashed Beatport’s servers upon release before quickly shooting to the top spot. In another mark of success, his latest single “Language” quickly reached number one on Beatport’s overall chart and has enjoyed massive airplay at BBC Radio 1 over the past couple weeks. He also landed his first residency with Wynn Las Vegas earlier this year, way before he could ever legally sit down at a blackjack table. Robinson has successfully proven his potential for crossover appeal, wowing diverse audiences at this year’s Coachella festival and planning to follow suit at Lollapalooza, in addition to playing support on fellow electro artist Tiesto’s recent “College Invasion Tour”. Robinson’s superior ability to imbue addictive synth lines, pulsating bass and intense drops with unbounded energy has earned him continued esteem in the electronic scene and beyond.
