Early Life

Porter Robinson was born on July 15, 1992 in Atlanta, Georgia. He grew up in North Carolina, where he attended high school. He grew up with his three brothers – Nick, Robert, and Mark. He was accepted into the University of North Carolina, a school where both of his parents are alumni, but he chose not to attend in order to pursue his career in music. He had begun learning how to produce music at the age of 12. He posted his musical creations on online forums. There, he met future collaborator Madeon, who at the time was using the aliases "Daemon" and "Wayne Mont." From 2005 to 2010, Robinson posted his music under the alias "Ekowraith."


In 2010, Robinson began releasing music under his own name. He released a variety of original singles on Glamara Records and Big Fish Recordings. One of his most notable releases at the time was "Say My Name," which reached number one on Beatport's chart. This launched Robinson into the mainstream dance music world. He was only 18 years old at the time. He caught the eye of dubstep producer Skrillex.

In 2011, Robinson signed a one-EP deal with Owsla, a label operated by Skrillex, to release the eleven-track album "Spitfire." It topped the iTunes Dance chart and Beatport's overall chart, even crashing Beatport's servers upon its release. In 2012, he released the single "Language," which rose to the number one overall chart position on Beatport and on the iTunes Dance chart. He then embarked on a tour in support of "Language" supported by artists Mat Zo and the M Machine. He also co-wrote the hit song "Clarity" by Zedd and sang back-up vocals on the track.

In 2014, Robinson's debut studio album "Worlds" was released through Astralwerks and Virgin EMI. For the album, Robinson collaborated with multiple vocalists and groups like Urban Cone, Lemaitre, Breanne Duren, and Amy Millan. After releasing the album, he embarked on a world tour which included headlining spots at music festivals like Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, and Coachella. A remix album, "Worlds Remixed," was released in October 2015 and included remixes by electronic artists like Odesza, San Holo, Mat Zo, and Electric Mantis, among others.

In August 2016, he released "Shelter," a collaboration with fellow musician and friend Hugo Leclercq. They then embarked on a year-long joint international tour dubbed the "Shelter Live Tour." In October 2017, Robinson released a new single called "Eon Break" under the alias Virtual Self. A follow-up single, Ghost Voices," was released in November. In January of 2018, it was announced that "Ghost Voices" was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording.


Robinson, as Virtual Self, released a self-titled EP on November 29, 2017. He held a debut live performance in December in Brooklyn, New York City and followed this up by making a number of appearances at music festivals and a two-month North American tour. In March 2019, Robinson announced Multiverse Music Festival, a one-day festival in Oakland, California featuring a self-curated lineup. The name of the festival was later changed to Second Sky Music Festival and a second day was added after ticket sales exceeded original expectations.

In January 2020, Robinson announced his second album, "Nurture," with the release of the first single "Get Your Wish." The full album was not released until April 23, 2021. The album made a number of year-end lists, like the "Billboard" Best Albums of 2021. It was also nominated at the Billboard Music Awards in the Top Dance/Electronic Album category. He soon afterward announced a tour in support of "Nurture." In September 2021, Robinson announced his Air to Earth side project, a live-only project focusing on progressive house, disco, and samples. He premiered the project at his Second Sky music festival. The next year, Robinson released a single called "Everything Goes On." In November 2022, a couple of Robinson's songs were added to the arcade game "Dance Dance Revolution," marking his debut in the series. In February 2023, Robinson collaborated with Skrillex and Bibi Bourelly on the track "Still Here (With the Ones That I Came With)" which was released on Skrillex's second studio album, "Quest for Fire."
