Review: Porter Robinson at Lavo NYC

Luxurious nightclub Lavo NYC held a spot last Thursday for nineteen-year old electro house connoisseur, Porter Robinson, who was more than ready to take the limelight.  The exclusive club, where everyone was dressed to impress, got the night going before Porter’s arrival with the talent of DJ Bambi, a girl DJ and real class act. The ambiance of crystal, spinning disco balls above the tables, and Grey Goose bottles being popped had everyone anxiously awaiting the producer who had already made his name out in big lights.

After recently signing with Skrillex’s label OWSLA and releasing his debut EP Spitfire, the sensational artist has charted at #1 for his single “Say My Name,” all while still remaining under the legal drinking age. Porter opened with this record, getting the crowd ready for the long thrill ride ahead!


During Miami music week, Porter’s newest single “Language” had all the heads talking and has now held the #1 spot on Beatport! When he dropped the track, it lured people right in like kids in a candy store. Some of the night’s highlights were Skrillex’s “Summit,” Arty’s “Punk,” Nicky Romero’s “Generation,” and of course the classic from Tiesto, “Maximal Crazy.”


Early in the night, Porter dropped the newly released record from Nari and Milani “Atom,” which had the clubgoers dancing on top of tables.  One of the undeniably best Porter Robinson records “Vandalism,” featuring the exceptionally talented vocalist Amba Shepherd, captivated right into everyone’s ears. The imagery within the lyrics and the gripping melody give it the title as the most compelling and catchiest track on the album.


Another massive song of the night was “The Seconds” featuring the beautiful vocals of Jano. Once Porter’s very own hit “Unison,” got the crowd pounding the floor, glowing light sticks were given out for everyone to hold high.


If the crowd didn’t know Porter’s name beforehand, they sure did now and were in for a night full of treats at Lavo! Porter Robinson is on a rapid grind and will, without question, remain in the electronic music scene pumping out massive hits for the youthful, dance music lover’s generation.
