Porter Robinson is delivering to us a real gem, the euphoric, swelling Lionhearted, a team-up with Swedish outfit Urban Cone.
On his BBC Radio 1 show, Zane Lowe bestowed Lionheart with his coveted tag of ‘The Hottest Record In The World Right Now’. As much as Robinson has pitched Worlds as a departure from main stage sounds, this one has all the hallmarks of a summer anthem.
The track is sure to be a highlight of Robinson’s shows across North America this fall. Shortly after the August 12 release of Worlds on Astralwerks, the production wunderkind will set out on a 40-date trek, beginning in Vancouver and winding to a close in Miami.
About the live shows to come, Robinson reveals “I plan to be doing all originals, kind of like a career-spanning, mash-up, multi-tracked, sample-triggering live show”. “I don’t want to copy his set-up, but watching Flume’s show, where he’s triggering samples – a lot of that stuff inspires me and gives me ideas. I want to do something different, for sure.”
