~ Worlds by Porter Robinson ~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
There is a certain aspect that is missing in today's EDM music, and that is: Meaning. In @porterrobinson 's debut album #Worlds, Porter shows a great change in sound from his earlier work. His music here has become much more creative, alternative and now represent something much deeper. Here, Porter creates a story within the music backed by very epic and grand synthetic instrumentals, as well as anime/video game inspired lo-fi electronic sounds. From the sadness and cuteness of the synthetic fantasy dance track "Sad Machine", to the CHVRCHES/Passion Pit-esque Synthpop track "Lionhearted", to the Orchestral and deep artistic beauty that is "Fellow Feeling", which is easily the best track overall musically. It starts off with sweeping orchestral swings as the song builds up to an ultimate EDM climax. The song speaks of the current state of EDM in a narrative "Let me explain
This ugliness, this cruelty, this repulsiveness
It will all die out
And now, I cry for all that is beautiful
Let me explain". Here, we dig deep into the mind and perspective of Porter when he was creating the generic formulaic music he speaks of, obviously referring to his earlier EPs and dance tracks. This entire album, really, digs deep into the perspective of him and creates a real story for the listener to experience. It really is ethereal. Definitely recommend checking this out, especially if you are a fan of EDM.
