Biography

At 21, life is usually filled with exams, a first job, or even a small amount of uncertainty as to what you want to do in life… Porter Robinson however, has broken the mold completely. Having already featured twice in the Billboard 21 Under 21, where he ranked ahead of the likes of Miley Cyrus and Cher Lloyd, you begin to quickly see that Porter is no ordinary talent.

Growing up in the sleepy town of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Porter began producing music at the tender age of 13, having caught the bug from Dance Dance Revolution.
Fast forward several years later, and releases such as “Say My Name” were quickly attracting attention from all the right places. His very first EP, “Spitfire”, was quickly signed by Skrillex as the first release for his new OWSLA label. Upon release, the EP crashed Beatport’s servers and headed straight for #1 in the charts where it remained for weeks. This was all done in between remixes for the likes of Avicii and Lady Gaga… all in the same year he celebrated his 18th birthday.

From here on, it was full steam ahead. Picking up support slots on tours with Skrillex and then on Tiësto’s infamous College Invasion tour, people began to take note of Porter’s unique style of mixing and the insane energy he showed behind the decks. In addition to these colossal artist tours, Porter also made his way onto the stages of Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival and Electric Zoo; as well as landing himself in the DJ Mag Top 100.
