The Heterosexuality Experiment
What the actual fuck how are people so uneducated oh god my head hurts
Porter Robinson - Flicker
I’m not sure if I’m growing more prone to EDM or if it’s just getting better (you’d hope that’s the case, right?). I mean I still like to call out the new Skrillex remixes whenever a police car zooms past with sirens blaring but it takes an artist like Porter Robinson to make me actually appreciate what you can do with a seemingly overgrown genre of builds and drops.
"Flicker" is Porter’s fourth and last single release before he’s dropping the full album Worlds on August 12th. The song features a chopped up text-to-speech voice reciting “Watashi wa choudo nani ga jyuuyou ka mitsukeyou to shiteiru” which translates to “I’m trying to find just what’s really important to me”. That sounds like a mission statement to me as Robinson has been quoted saying he just wants to write music that he thinks is cool without compromise. My excitement for the album is getting to see what other worlds he’s created in sound. You’re bound to get hyped as well if you check out his particular fusion of Portal, Netsky, Sonic, and, yes, even some of those build and drops we all seem to love.
This is EDM for the house not house music for the club.
P.S. I live for that laugh.
