Porter Robinson – Worlds 8.0

PORTER-ROBINSON

Although only 22, rising EDM star Porter Robinson sounds mature beyond his years. And honestly, with a wondrous record like his full-length debut Worlds, he might just mature his still-adolescent genre along with him. As much about beauty and brilliance as it is about bass and bounce, the album at times sounds like a raved up take on the likes of Passion Pit (on “Sad Machine,” “Lionhearted” and elsewhere) while it sifts through a surprising emotional range with an even more surprising assortment of sounds, particularly on the symphonic standout “Sea of Voices.” Simultaneously a think-piece and a party-starter, the set proves Robinson has the potential to truly change how the EDM world could spin for years to come. — Eric Mitts
