It's so rare these days that it's almost unheard of: an album that lands straight between the crosshairs of your expectations. Getting what you think you're going to get feels, after all, a little boring. It's become the norm, therefore, in the last few years for artists to attempt to confound their audience, where before they were more than content to focus iterative changes that would take their fans with them. Now? Anything goes.
Porter Robinson is one of the young producers at the forefront of America's EDM scene, one generally looked down upon by European DJs as something which essentially lacks charisma or a willingness to innovate. Perhaps stung by this, his response was to tell anyone who would listen that 'Worlds' wouldn't be a party album, but instead would have a pedigree demonstrating it was crafted by someone who wasn't simply box-ticking their way to success. It's fair to say though, that still not everyone was holding their breath in anticipation.
A bold mindset then but, given EDM's current grip on the psyche of US teenagers and his pre-eminence amongst its cadre along with Skillrex and Deadmau5, 'Worlds' was never going to be an album indebted to the avant garde. Robinson sets out his stall early, opener 'Divinity' full of pounding beats and naggingly insistent loops, a package neatly given a very human touch via the angelic vocals of Broken Social Scene's Amy Millan. As if to underline that this isn't the vibe to drain a keg to at a frat party, 'Tears of War' centres lyrically around an intractable conflict: "200 years of war/We'll fight 'til we are no more". Although, despite this mythical energy, Robinson places it in very much an appealing synth-pop framework.

The Netherlands' own electronic music festival Mysteryland to make its US debut in 2014 at Woodstock site Bethel Woods.
Mysteryland will return for its 20th consecutive year this weekend (August 24th 2013), but there's more exciting news as it's revealed that next year's event will take place at New York's Bethel Woods - the site of the unforgettable Woodstock 1969!
Mysteryland is the oldest electronic musical in the world and is held every year in the Netherlands - it has come to Floriade in Haarlemmermeer for the past ten years, apart from 2011 where it took to Chile for the first time. This year, though, organisers have decided to reach a different kind of audience by holding the concert on the holy grounds of the most legendary rock festival in history - Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. It will debut in the US on Memorial Day weekend from May 23rd - 26th 2014 and we're expecting a memorable line-up to match.
