Are You Ready for Porter Robinson’s "Worlds" Down Under?

Porter Robinson developed a live show in 2014 that shared the title of his breakthrough album also released that year. Worlds has been performed across numerous continents, and is touted as one of the best examples of live mixing coupled with some of the most insanely ethereal visuals going around. It has also been the centre of massive controversy, with Robinson cancelling several shows in Germany, France and Finland throughout 2014 based on the fact that the venue wouldn’t suit the gravity of the show. Although this caused uproar at the time, Porter's fan base remains intensely loyal, especially in anticipation of his tour to Australia later this year.

In 2013 the 22 year-old made the trip down under off the back of his hugely successful 2012 EP Spirfire, but performed as a DJ only. Last year he returned with Worlds, but to the dismay of his huge Aussie fan base his performances were limited to a few shows for EDM dance festival Stereosonic. This year he’s back; not only playing at Splendour In The Grass but bringing his much anticipated live show to a number of capital cities (supported by local boys Wave Racer and Cosmo’s Midnight), also in July.

You may have heard Worlds in its pure form as an audio journey, but you’ve never heard Porter Robinson like this before. Over the last few months a dude called VGD has got his hands on and uploaded numerous remixes of surprisingly accurate live versions of various songs from the show. The choons below will give you just a small taste of what to expect from Porter's live show. Enjoy, and prepare your bodies for Porter Robinson...
