For a lot of us in the dance music fraternity, the wait for Porter Robinson’s debut album has been a long & tedious one. Now, the 22 year old producer, has finally completed the album, and has released into the world his entire debut album, Worlds. Though the original release date was set to August 12th, Porter Robinson decided to share the productions he’d been spending so many hours of hard work on, just a few days early. You can listen to the entire album by clicking on NPR‘s Website, or by hitting the player. It’s not what one would expect, given Robinson’s usual style of production, but it’s definitely breath-taking and brilliant in it’s own right. Beautiful sounds, masterful sound scaping and filled with emotion, it’s definitely has nothing one would expect to hear in a peak-time set during a massive festival. It’s a phenomenal example of sheer talent and ingenuity when applied to music writing and production.
Here is how Porter Robinson described Worlds to Billboard:
“I wanted to do something that felt beautiful and emotional and that felt nostalgic,” describes Robinson. “I think it sort of employs the pretty vibe of the last couple songs I put out, like ‘Language’ and ‘Easy,’ but I wanted a vintage sound. Something that was a little more lo-fi-inspired. It has a bunch of weird tempos that dance people aren’t really doing. There’s no DJ-friendly intro and outro. It’s meant to be listening music. It’s not a party record at all.”
