Cape Town - American electronic music DJ Porter Robinson has been announced as part of the Huawei Culture Club Electronic Dome line-up at this year's Rocking the Daisies, South Africa’s premiere eco-friendly Music and Lifestyle Festival, happening from 1 - 4 October this year, at Cloof Wine Estate, Darling.
Porter Robinson will deliver a spectacular live performance at this year’s Rocking the Daisies, as he joins a stellar line-up for the Huawei Culture Club Electronic Dome – which includes SCUBA, Thor Rixon, Dean Fuel, Haezer and many more.
"Two years ago," remembers Porter Robinson, "I only had the inkling of the idea that I wanted to do something different. I needed to do something that was honest and real,” Porter explains. So he turned down countless DJ offers in 2013 to spend the entire year devoting himself to a process of introspection and reinvention.
"I figured that one way to develop a unique identity as an artist would be to combine all my favourite things in music — it would result in something that is really personal, a collective expression of my taste and experience. Something nobody else has."
And thus began Worlds (Astralwerks/Virgin EMI), a cinematic excursion that commingles Porter’s technological prowess with his love of evocative melody. His first studio album, it finds an unlikely common ground for Porter’s diverse inspirations: Kanye West’s Graduation, Daft Punk’s Discovery, The Postal Service, and an array of orchestral movie scores.
Boasting a series of voluminous and ethereal hymns Porter says, "I don’t want to be the flag bearer for any genre. I don’t want to change the game," he says. "I really just want to have my own signature, my own sound. I know it sounds crazy, but I want to start my legacy."
Don’t forget the new ticket payment option, Mobicred. This new system was introduced by Nutickets, in partnership with Rocking the Daisies, as an alternative payment option that does not require fans to have a credit card, just a simple sign-up procedure with a 24hour approval period followed by easy, minimum monthly installments via debit order.
