This Tuesday, November 15 Porter Robinson and Madeon take a pit stop on their fall Shelter Tour to play at the Orpheum Theatre Boston. Porter Robinson got his musical start from the upbringings of his brother bringing home Dance Dance Revolution and hooking him instantaneously on the expansive capabilities within the electronic realm. Similarly, in the electronic dance style is Madeon who achieved his first sight of fame by artfully mashing up 39 of his favorite tunes, all mixed together into one pop explosion, fittingly entitled “Pop Culture.”
Fast forward about five years and each artist has released highly successful albums. Porter Robinson’s 2014 Worlds is a must listen dance album, and Madeon’s Adventure is an equally as powerful collection of well crafted nighttime, hit the dance floor or sit back and listen to the entirely immersive nature of the record. The two artists’ recent collaboration entitle “Shelter” proves that when two artists in similar soundscapes put their heads together it’s guaranteed to be a must see show. And coming from two humble guys when asked about their success, it appears they both take the music, tones and particular style of electronic music to heart. This should be a good night out in Boston. Get your tickets before they sell out for this 7:30pm one.
