Porter Robinson’s BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix @ Hull

Goddamit Porter, how are you so good?

This question always pops up in my head (I can probably say the same for the other Metrojolt authors) whenever I hear something new that Porter has done. This essential mix blew me away.  Other than the single 3 minute break where you can finally sit back and take a breath, the majority of the hour long essential is a flurry of energetic Electro, stabby Complextro, funky House and dirty Dubstep.  Add in some Trance and Moombahton into the mix and you have Porter Robinson’s first BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, which does a great job of traversing throughout the major genres of electronic music.

Porter even graced us with the opportunity of hearing one of his unreleased tracks which sounds like a beautiful combination of  Avicii synths, heavy Wolfgang Gartner drums, and harmonious Tiesto melodies (I’m sure he picked up a couple pointers from Tiesto during the College Invasion Tour).  You can catch this track in the last 7 minutes of his mix, right before Say My Name blows you away, just like old times when Porter Robinson wasn’t a 19 year old big shot around the world.

Here is the live version of Porter Robinson’s BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix.  Sit back and enjoy this 19 year old wonder do his thing.
