A Mix of Great Artists
STEVE PORTER BIO
The next generation of electronic music producers is gaining hold and leading the charge is DJ/production phenom STEVE PORTER. His prolific productions have garnered international attention and are propelling him into America’s future DJ-cum-producer star. He is now poised for his official coming out party with his debut artist album ‘Homegrown’ on FDS Recordings.
‘Homegrown’ is an amalgam of Steve Porter’s various unique styles and melodic nuances. The expertly mixed album brings together 14 original tracks. Some of which have already garnered wide attention with inclusion of the tracks on numerous high-profile dance music labels & compilations including; "Vodka Cranberries" on hot new label Nu Republic, "Definite Form" on Sander Kleinenberg’s Little Mountain Records and included on his recent Everybody CD for Renaissance, and most recently, the track “Swanky” has been included on über-cool Felix da Housecat’s upcoming Playboy: The Mansion compilation.
Once in a blue moon there comes along a prodigy that is noticed by the big guns and whose talent catapults them onto the world stage. Something of a child prodigy from a famous scientist father, Steve’s first love was discovering electronic sounds at 16 years old. From Boston to New York, Steve Porter has evolved from record store clerk, mobile DJ to New England rave DJ to landing on the roster at one of the most prestigious booking agencies in the world. Steve Porter was discovered by Chris Fortier when Chris heard a CDR of his productions in 1999. Chris quickly brought him into the FADE Records fold. Soon thereafter, Steve was signed as the youngest member to join The Collective Agency; home to Sasha, U.N.K.L.E., Lee Burridge and James Zabiela. He began touring across the U.S., Canada, South America, Australia, Asia and Europe and has played alongside Sasha on the Airdrawndagger & Involver North American tours, Sander Kleinenberg on the Essential Mix Tour and also headlining a hectic schedule of national and international DJ dates.
Over the last six years, Steve has amassed a wide portfolio of over 50 singles and 28 remixes under his name and the many aliases (Agent 001, HDF & Bons) used to suit the mood of the song. His myriad of tracks have been dominating dancefloors globally with the versatility of Porterhouse finding its way into the record boxes of everyone from Sasha, Lee Burridge, Derrick Carter, Carl Cox, Sander Kleinenberg, Mark Farina and Paul van Dyk.
Steve’s studio work is just one facet of this multi-faceted genius. He currently is in the 5th year of a residency at RISE, the long-running and only afterhours club in Boston and just headlined New Years Eve 2005 in his hometown at the largest club in the area, Avalon Boston and his widely successful Winter Music Conference 2005 Porterhouse party at State nightclub.. Steve’s sound is known to his fans as “Porterhouse,” an eclectic range of funked-up house beats with a techy-edge and twisted jams induced by his own re-edits and mixes that molds his DJ sets. When Steve walks into a record store he examines every genre, picking the top gems from Disco to Techno to Trance and everything in between.
The essence of Porterhouse brings the energetic action to the dancefloor where the warm, funky basslines and cool percussion melt away any chin stroking pretensions and the resonating guitar & piano hooks lure you into an eternal groove. Make no mistake, Porterhouse is party house.
What's inside is simply stunning. Consistent with the genre's deep, dub-influenced sound, the album presents a multi-layered mix of synths, beats, and piano boosted by trance-like climaxes of anthemic waves, though the focal point remains Porter's irresistibly propulsive bass lines. His eclectic 'Porterhouse' style ranges beyond house to artfully weave elements of jazz, soul, and funk into the unrelenting mix. Taken as a whole, Homegrown is an ecstatic, even orgiastic, sampling of Progressive House, a dizzyingly rich amalgam of pounding beats and serpentine bass lines. – TEXTURA.ORG
Up-and-coming electronica golden boy Steve Porter. –PHILADELPHIA WEEKLY
For his debut artist LP, Sasha and Sander Kleinenberg's protégé Steve Porter delivers one of the best albums released in a year. Porter exercises his agile musicality, waltzing effortlessly from the jazzy piano riffs of "Fluffer Nutter" and "Beat N Potatoes," to the booming 4/4 and high-energy of "Vodka Cranberries." Porter's ingenuity shines-through in the devilish dissonance of "Rage In The Cage" and the brilliant weirdness of "Lady Elaine." A murderously good effort all-around. -DJ TIMES MAGAZINE
Steve Porter has been a firm favourite among the progressive cognoscenti for the last few years with his stunning productions and remixes on a whole host of leading labels. But it’s here on his debut album where Porter shows just how good he really is. ‘Homegrown’ is a completely instrumental album that is mixed seamlessly culminating in a mesmerising, uplifting sonic voyage.
Each one of the 14 tracks on here – and there is not a duff one among them – has a rich, fulfilling, musical sound with warm melodies being teased in and out, going upscale and down, playing with your senses continuously. Steve Porter has created an album that will stand the test of time. – I-DJ MAGAZINE
Steve Porter is definitely one to watch—just ask Chris Fortier, Sander Kleinenberg and Sasha. Porter’s debut artist album is pricking up ears with its subtle, prolific spirit that speaks volumes without using a word. He is the first American producer to brilliantly capture the minimalist, hard-hitting sound coming out of Germany at the moment. But don’t get the wrong idea—there is nothing derivative about this album or this man. His original music and DJ sets simply possess some of the same techy traits, funked up beats and cool meandering edge you might hear in an underground German club. On Homegrown Porter puts all original material together into a seamless, expertly mixed fashion to make a compelling CD that feels like the future of dance music. -BPM MAGAZINE
Mr. Porter is riding the crest of a wave of upcoming producers, creating a solid distinction between the old with an infectious new sound that blends elements of funk, techno, retro-electro, trance and progressive house. -INNERPHASE NY
Disco-tech prodigy Steve Porter's career got fast-tracked when some of his tracks came across the desk of then-Twilo resident and Fade Records co-founder Chris Fortier, who immediately signed Porter to the fledgling imprint. Fast forward just a few years and Porter's tracks can be found in the crates of some of the biggest names in the biz, including Sasha, who invited Porter to open for him on the North American legs of the Airdrawndagger and Involver tours, Sander Kleinenberg, Lee Burridge, Derrick Carter, Carl Cox and Paul van Dyk. His funky, tech-twisted house style, which Porter's dubbed "Porterhouse," has also scored the Boston native (he currently hold a resident at Beantown's only after-hours club RISE)
