Listen To New Sets From Flume, Porter Robinson, & More For RADIO.com

Yesterday, RADIO.com hosted a Party In Place broadcast with some of the biggest names we’ve seen: Deadmau5, Disclosure, Flume, Major Lazer, Odesza, Porter Robinson, Rezz, RÜFÜS DU SOL, and Toro Y Moi. Though each artist only had about a 18-20 minute set, which is a bit disappointing, these are still new sets which should offset the disappointment just a bit.

So far, only a few of the sets have been uploaded to Mixcloud. Listen to Deadmau5, Flume, Odesza, Porter Robinson, and RÜFÜS DU SOL below!

RADIO.COM Presents ‘Party In Place’ with Deadmau5, Flume, Porter Robinson, & More

Radio.com just announced the virtual lineup to beat all virtual lineups. Digital Mirage might be impeccably curated and Rave Family Block Fest might have the numbers, but this lineup is really something else…

This Friday, July 3 at 7pm PT/10pm ET, Radio.com will be broadcasting exclusive (that means new) sets from: Deadmau5, Disclosure, Flume, Major Lazer, Odesza, Porter Robinson, Rezz, RÜFÜS DU SOL, and Toro Y Moi. Any of these artists could easily sell out major venues by themselves, and having them in one place is unreal.

Unfortunately, the virtual concert is only scheduled to last three hours. That means between 8 artists, each of their sets will only last approximately 22.5 minutes. But even still, with a lineup this strong, we don’t mind the short set times.

The virtual concert will be broadcast across all Radio.com Alternative stations on Friday, July 3 beginning at 10PM ET / 7PM PT. You can also listen on the RADIO.COM app.

During the broadcast, Radio.com is encouraging fans to help raise funds for voter access through their partner When We All Vote — a non-profit, nonpartisan organization on a mission to increase participation in every election and close the race and age voting gap by changing the culture around voting, harnessing grassroots energy, and creating strategic partnerships to reach every American.

We're bringing the music to you with #PartyInPlace! Catch sets from @deadmau5, @disclosure, @flumemusic, @MAJORLAZER + so many more: https://t.co/YtFURcBDdE

🎧 Listen exclusively on your favorite https://t.co/o5F2snf2Ql alternative station this Friday, July 3rd at 10 PM ET! pic.twitter.com/vXrvBt7RLN

Porter Robinson Makes Playlist Of Music To Listen To While Gaming

There are only so many times in a row that we can listen to our favorite songs and albums on repeat in quarantine, so editorial playlists are becoming more and more important. Thankfully, Porter Robinson is here to help.

Porter was asked by Spotify to put together a playlist of songs he listens to while gaming, and he came through with flying colors. He says these are some of his most cherished songs to listen to while gaming.

spotify asked me to put together a playlist of songs that i listen to while playing videogames, so i made this new playlist: https://t.co/jAmXSjMtsi

(thank you everyone at @spotify for the support on nurture thus far!)

On the playlist, you’ll find plenty of Porter’s favorites including Madeon, G Jones, Mura Masa and Clairo, Anamanaguchi, Wave Racer, some classic Daft Punk, a little Toro Y Moi, even some Janet Jackson.

Proximity Uploads Avril Lavigne x Porter Robinson “Language” Mash Up From Secret Sky

Apart from the wild Lil B freestyle during Porter Robinson’s set in Secret Sky, and of course the new song, one of the other biggest moments during his set was the emotionally devastating mashup of “Language” and Avril Lavigne’s “I’m With You” paired with a nightcore remix of “Language.”

When this played, it was a total surprise and instantly caused most of us listening to become an total emotional wreck. “I’m With You” is probably one of Avril’s more overlooked songs, especially in the shadow of “Complicated,” “Sk8er Boi,” and “Girlfriend,” (still, it’s her 8th most-streamed song on Spotify) so hearing it pop up in Porter’s set was absolute bliss. The way it meshes with “Language” is also superb and made for a particularly beautiful combo.

Then, after he’s punched us in the feelings gut, Porter caps it off with a nightcore edit of “Language” for some real rave vibes.

Relive the full set below, and listen again to all the Secret Sky sets here!

Porter Robinson Premieres New Track “Look at the Sky” During Secret Sky Fest [WATCH]

Porter Robinson‘s incredible Secret Sky Festival took place last night — not in person as his Second Sky concept was originally imagined, but online.

To top off 14 hours of music, the producer threw down what’s likely to be one of his only proper set of 2020, given the current pandemic. Complete with emotional mashups and edits (that Porter Robinson x Avril Lavigne – Language x I’m With You moment though), as well as new and old fan favorites from “Something Comforting” to “Shelter” to “Divinity” and everything in between, his set hit just right.

But the real cherry on top was most definitely the premiere of this new production, “Look at the Sky.” Not only is the song a moving Porter Robinson original, it’s a reminder for us to appreciate what we have in the moment and look ahead to brighter days. Listening back, our hearts are so full.

The producer ended it all with a message: “thank you secret sky. second sky will be back, promise. love you and thank you so much, -porter”

Porter Robinson – Look at the Sky

Watch Porter Robinson Live From Secret Sky Festival

It’s been almost a full day of streams, but the moment we’ve all been waiting for is finally here: Porter Robinson is live now on Secret Sky for what will likely be his only set of 2020. With festivals all but decimated due to COVID-19, and Porter regularly keeping a pretty tight tour schedule even before the pandemic, it seems reasonable. The only other time he might stream live is when his sophomore album, Nurture, is released.

But for now, following a stellar set from Madeon, Porter Robsinon is now live. Without seeing his stream first, it’s likely to be a new blend of Worlds and Nurture and “Shelter” material, probably with some even newer live edits thrown in for good measure.

No matter what goes down, it will likely be intensely memorable and a lot of fun. Check out Porter’s set below.

Porter Robinson’s Second Sky Is Coming To Live Stream

Porter Robinson’s Second Sky is coming to live stream. Porter Robinson’s Second Sky is coming to live stream. Porter Robinson’s Second Sky is coming to live stream. I’ll say it one more time: Porter Robinson’s Second Sky is coming to live stream.

This is easily, without a doubt, going to be one of the most-streamed events of quarantine thus far. Porter has never really done a live stream set before, lockdown or otherwise, so this will be very special.

It’s unclear what sort of production there will be, if sets will come in remote or will have a central location like Insomniac’s Virtual Rave-A-Thons,. The lineup is also still forthcoming, but we know at the very least that Porter Robinson will be headlining. It is his festival, after all…

The stream is presented by Goldenvoice, Brownies & Lemonade, and Slush Management, and it’s going down this weekend, Saturday, May 9. You can RSVP here.

GOLDENVOICE, BROWNIES & LEMONADE, & SLUSH PROUDLY PRESENT:

PORTER ROBINSON'S SECRET SKY

STREAMING FESTIVAL

Rukes Reminds Us Of When Justin Bieber Threatened To Kill Deadmau5

Ah, 2011… a simpler time. Porter Robinson was joining Tiësto on his college invasion tour, Deadmau5 and Skrillex were still buds, and Justin Bieber was a young lad at just 17 years old. But even back then, the mau5’s ire ran deep on social media, and he had a particular distaste for the Canadian pop star.

Yesterday, back in 2011, acclaimed photographer Rukes was on tour with Deadmau5 when they decided to hit up a nearby Skrillex gig in Australia. Somehow coincidentally, Bieber’s photographer was also in the area and showed up at the show, and handed mau5 a signed photograph complete with the message, “deadmou5 [sic] i will kill you!”

View this post on Instagram

On this day in April 29, 2011 I was on tour with @deadmau5 in Australia. @justinbieber’s tour photographer at that time happened to meet up with us at a @skrillex gig and had given him an infamous autographed photo for Joel. #deadmau5 #justinbieber

Deadmau5 talked about the encounter in a podcast with H3 back in 2018.

Dillon Francis & Porter Robinson Debuted Their One-Time Duo ‘Spoon Ü’ 5 Years Ago Today

HARD Summer has, historically, always had the best lineup trailer videos. Thanks in large part to the visionary direction of Agata Alexander for many years, the videos are hilarious and call upon the best qualities off all the DJs they feature.

2015 was a particularly banner year for the festival, as Jack Ü, The Chemical Brothers, Rae Sremmurd, Ratatat, The Weeknd, and more were set to perform. It was also the festival’s first year at the Fairplex in Pomona, so it had to be special. Cue the brilliant idea for a duo between Dillon Francis and Porter Robinson called Spoon Ü.

An obvious spoof on the festival’s headliner duo featuring Skrillex and Diplo, the Dillon and Porter concoction in the trailer was doomed from the start due to Dillon’s wild ego. We still wish that, even just once, they would have actually done a set together. Maybe now that we’re all in quarantine and no one’s touring anyway, they might find some inspiration.

Check out the trailer again below, or maybe you’re seeing it for the first time!

Porter Robinson’s Seminal Classic “Language” Turns 8 Years Old

To this day, Porter Robinson’s seminal classic “Language” continues to provide all the feels. Truly, no matter when it’s dropped in a set or by who, it’s guaranteed to get a massive crowd response and bring up some really emotional memories. This past weekend, the hit turned 8 years old.

A lot has changed for Porter Robinson since this came out — he’s toured the world with Tiesto, released his hit debut album Worlds, created “Shelter” with Madeon and once again toured the world, and now he’s working on his sophomore album, Nurture. But it all started with this one song…

Released as a single after his hit Spitfire EP, “Language” is still that one song we always look forward to in the producer’s sets. It’s hard to imagine that, even after Nurture, he won’t close with this gem.

The song was released April 10, 2012. Listen again below.
