Description

When Porter Robinson released his debut EP Spitfire on Skrillex’s label Owsla in 2011, he was heralded as a dubstep artist looking beyond the high-intensity trappings of the genre with a compositional skill that matched his ambitions. His debut album Worlds , released in 2014, fulfilled that promise. There was a strong sense of sci-fi fantasy lore to each of the songs, as if they were movie themes made in the furthest reaches of our solar system. It seemed like Porter Robinson knew exactly what he was doing and how to do it, which is why what came next was so surprising: he got stuck. Nearly seven years after releasing Worlds, Porter Robinson is back with his sophomore project Nurture. It’s a beautiful album, filled with little moments of joy and wonder, and it serves as an introduction to Porter Robinson the pop artist. Just before the album’s release, The FADER’s Jordan Darville spoke with Robinson about how he got himself on the road to Nurture by meeting his heroes in Japan, making the writing process a key part of the album’s sound, and how the global pandemic affected the record.
