Porter Robinson is 100% in this Bitch!

About a month ago, I wrote an article about Erik Arbores, the 14-year old Dutch phenom, so I figure I better pay respect to the United States and honor a phenom of our own. All hail, the recent high school graduate out of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Porter Robinson! Porter is currently 19-years old and living large in the world of electronic music. He started producing music at the age of 12 using Sony ACID Pro and his recent success has him sharing the stage with the likes of Tiësto and Skrillex.

The North Carolina native is taking the nation by storm and in 2011 he busted his festival cherry by performing at Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival and Electric Zoo. Porter Robinson utilized all of his time in the spotlight to his advantage gaining enough popularity to catapult his debut EP Spitfire all the way to #1 on Beatport. The release of this EP actually crashed Beatport’s server.

It appears that Porter is 100% in this Bitch and that is good for everyone who enjoys electronic music. Why don’t you check out his track “100% in the Bitch” right here? Then go pay respect by visiting his SoundCloud.
