20-year-old North Carolina native Porter Robinson is the latest dance music prodigy, having toured with superstar DJs like Skrillex and Tiesto. His current single Language is turning into a big international hit, reaching no.1 on the iTunes dance chart in America and entering the U.K. chart at no.9 this weekend. His musical style is electro house, which is house music with added synths and samples, and often a "dirty" bass. To be honest I learnt that off Wikipedia and it just sounds like any old dance music to me, but his speedy rise to fame suggests he's a name we'll be hearing a lot more of in the future.
