说实话，我真的不太苟同美国的舞曲音乐尤其是HOUSE音乐。也许是文化背景的关系，总觉得美国人与PROGRESSIVE舞曲文化无缘，虽然有DEEP DISH这样的超级大牌在撑场面，但是他们走的仍旧是主流的流行大众路线。Steve Porter确实是美国PROG House舞曲的领军人物，前卫的音色运用，丰富的旋律与和声，体现出与众不同的音乐文化内涵。提供分享的一张2005年发行的黑胶唱片。其实他的CD专辑已经发行，包括PORTER 04年以及05年创作的14首舞曲，只不过现在网上还没有太多相关资源，以后一定奉送。这张5首歌的EP就先送给喜欢电子舞曲及DJ朋友们，领略一下STEVE PORTER音乐魅力。
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
