To conclude HARD Summer, a large number of the event’s 146,000 ventured to Major Lazer’s headlining slot. However, countless others opted to walk over to the other side of Fontana’s Auto Club Speedway to pay witness to Porter Robinson’s legendary Worlds set.
Translating better to the HARDer stage’s format than perhaps any of the other live acts the stage hosted, Robinson provided a characteristically epic experience in his performance, replete with pyrotechnics, the Invisible Light Network’s imaginative visual designs, and a slew of unreleased live edits. While many of his most notable show staples remained highlights of the set, such as his “deer” edit of “Fresh Static Snow” and his ominous halftime spin on “Fellow Feeling,” a number of riveting new edits made their way into his performance.
Below, we’ve included videos of three such songs, uploaded to YouTube by Redditor Kevin Lee. Robinson’s edits of “Shepherdess/She Heals Everything,” “Flicker,” and “Natural Light” are all as breathtaking as fans have come to expect from the young artist’s experiential sets. As an aside, from 3:33 onward, the video for “Shepherdess” and “She Heals Everything” is an elysium for lovers of heavier glitch hop and techno.
