What's now come full circle began a few years back, when Porter turned down countless DJ offers to devote himself to introspection and reinvention. "I figured that one way to develop a unique identity as an artist would be to combine all my favorite things in music — it would result in a collective expression of my taste and experience. Something nobody else has."
He's happy to bask in this world for a bit, while he plots a much-intimidating sophomore album. "The next thing that I do will be in the wheelhouse of Worlds. I have been moving towards something that is fully sincere and authentic and 100 percent me. And I'm always getting closer."
