Porter Robinson and is ‘Hottest Record In The World Right Now’.

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.”

Nina Kravitz is launching a new label: трип

Russian Nina Kraviz has quite the reputation as a selector. She is the complete package. She sings, she produces, she DJs, and it’s for that reason that she is one of the most influential voices in the underground electronic world. As a DJ, she’s a regular at dance music’s most revered venues – think Berghain, Space Ibiza, The Warehouse Project and more – where she’s long been known for picking out the very best in house and techno. This September, Kraviz will be putting those selection powers to good use: she’s launching a new label.

Dubbed трип – pronounced ‘trip’, the press release helpfully advises – Kraviz’s debut label will focus on the “trippier, acidic side of electronic music”. As well as showcasing Nina’s own productions, трип will also house releases from artists Kraviz vibes on and those whose music she regularly plays in her sets.

To celebrate the launch, the Siberian identity will be hosting a series of launch parties, the first of which hits Barcelona on June 14.
