This 20-year-old talent has been touted by his peers (read Tiësto, Skrillex and Deadmau5) as one of the nu-breed saviours of electronic music, and having only experienced the limelight for a short amount of time, his achievements paint the picture of a bright future.
2011 saw Porter achieve what some do in an entire career. He provided tour support to Tiësto and Skrillex, as well as debut appearances at Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival and Electric Zoo that led to him entering DJ Mag’s Top 100 and the Billboard Top 21 Under 21 chart. His Spitfire EP, which crashed Beatport’s servers on release, smashed its way to the #1 position in the process and held fort for 2 weeks solid. Add in a couple official remixes for Lady Gaga and Avicii, and one would think things could not get bigger for the young musician.
However, 2012 saw Porter growing even further with appearances in top-billed slots on those same festivals plus Coachella, Tomorrowland, Creamfields and Lollapalooza. He began residencies at XS and Surrender in Las Vegas, made a European headline tour debut, spun a live Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1, and released the hit single “Language” to great acclaim and constant radio spins around the world – not to mention #1 spots on the Beatport Overall and iTunes Dance charts. To date the single has sold over 250,000 copies.
Porter begins 2013 with the release of his acclaimed Mat Zo co-production “Easy”, which quickly reached #1 on both Beatport and Hype Machine, and is currently gaining traction across radio worldwide. A full length album is progress, as is yet another strong festival season which includes Ultra Music Festival, EDC (Vegas, NYC, and London), Creamfields, Bonnaroo, The X-Games, Wireless Fest, Tomorrowland, Fuji Rock, and Global Gathering, plus a renewed residency with The Wynn properties in Las Vegas. Porter's first full length album is currently in the works.
