Rocking the Daisies 2015 announces Porter Robinson (live)


Words: Seed Experiences

Cape Town: American electronic music DJ Porter Robinson has been announced as part of the Huawei Culture Club Electronic Dome line-up at this year’s Rocking the Daisies, South Africa’s premiere eco-friendly Music and Lifestyle Festival, happening from the 1st to the 4th of October this year, at Cloof Wine Estate, Darling.

Porter Robinson will deliver a spectacular live performance at this year’s Rocking the Daisies, as he joins a stellar line-up for the Huawei Culture Club Electronic Dome – which includes SCUBA, Thor Rixon, Dean Fuel, Haezer and many more.

“Two years ago,” remembers Porter Robinson, “I only had the inkling of the idea that I wanted to do something different. I needed to do something that was honest and real,” Porter explains. So he turned down countless DJ offers in 2013 to spend the entire year devoting himself to a process of introspection and reinvention. “I figured that one way to develop a unique identity as an artist would be to combine all my favorite things in music — it would result in something that is really personal, a collective expression of my taste and experience. Something nobody else has.”

And thus began Worlds (Astralwerks/Virgin EMI), a cinematic excursion that commingles Porter’s technological prowess with his love of evocative melody. His first studio album, it finds an unlikely common ground for Porter’s diverse inspirations: Kanye West’s Graduation, Daft Punk’s Discovery, The Postal Service, and an array of orchestral movie scores.

Boasting a series of voluminous and ethereal hymns Porter says, “I don’t want to be the flag bearer for any genre. I don’t want to change the game,” he says. “I really just want to have my own signature, my own sound. I know it sounds crazy, but I want to start my legacy.”
