Some big news was dropped on Ottawa EDM fans today as Porter Robinson's 'Language' Tour featuring Porter, Mat Zo, and the M Machine will be coming to Barrymore's on Wednesday, June 20th!
Make no mistake, all three of these EDM artists have been responsible for creating some of the very best music in their respective genres in the last few months so seeing them all in one night is a real treat.
Porter Robinson has just released a genre breaking hit called 'Language' that has been embraced by virtually the entire EDM community from the Trance world to major Progressive House names such as Sebastian Ingrosso from the Swedish House Mafia. Ingrosso recently mentioned Porter Robinson on the latest 'Refune Radio' Podcast show saying how much he appreciated seeing his fast paced mixing skills live as well as complimenting him on his latest track:
For those that missed Porter Robinson the last time he came to Ottawa this is now your chance to redeem yourselves! His last set at Ritual Nightclub was one of the best I've seen in 2011.
Mat Zo has made a big name for himself in 2011 in part thanks to his amazing producing skills but also from the love given by Anjunabeats/Above & Beyond crew who have been so supportive of this young talent. Mat Zo recently caused a stir on Twitter but has redeemed himself by releasing such a beautiful track called 'The Sky' featuring the voice of Marcus Schossow's sister Linnea Schossow:
The Sky is now available on Beatport. If he keeps releasing tracks of this calibre then certainly 2012 will be a major year for Mat Zo.
The M Machine just released Metropolis Part 1 EP which was inspired by a 1927 German Sci-Fi movie also named Metropolis. Skrillex and his OWSLA label has given this San Francisco trio their full support which is entirely justified as I found their release to be dark, atmospheric, edgy, and highly enjoyable. Here's one of my favourite tracks of the bunch:
