I’m really excited about the evolution of Porter Robinson’s music and the direction he’s going in as an artist. Much like “Sea of Voices,” the first single he released from his upcoming album, this new track, “Sad Machine” is quite a departure from his previous work. It’s on the more upbeat, bouncy side, but it has a smoothness and sophistication that makes it remarkably different than the material found on his 2011 EP “Spitfire.”
Robinson has definitely stepped away from EDM and is carving an exciting new niche for himself that will separate him from mainstream artists like Avicii and Zedd, which makes me pretty happy. I’m really digging his new style and can’t wait to hear more of his new stuff.
