porterhouse 2005

by Betty Kang, PlexiPR ~ Steve Porter began his beefy assault on dance floors with his inaugural Porterhouse party at the State nightclub, Winter Music Conference 2005 - to a rousing crowd that clamored for more even after the last beat dropped. Since then he has continued on his HOMEGROWN debut artist album tour in over 30+ US cities, bringing his Porterhouse brand of “no rules, no borders” approach to dance music across the Americas.

This summer, Steve Porter will kick off 3 new quarterly residencies across North America with a few more cities pending. Each Porterhouse event will feature elaborate decorations, stunning visuals, live performances and of course, cutting-edge Porterhouse music. Steve will actually kick off with a few select dates with superstar DJ Sasha on his Fundacion NYC US tour. In a recent interview, Sasha recalls Steve’s “great energy,” a trait that Steve brought to his guest slot at Sasha’s Fundacion party at Avalon Hollywood (April 2005) and continues to bring along with his “infectious house music” in his own DJ sets and Porterhouse parties.

This is just the precursor to the upcoming Porterhouse EP due out in November 2005 and a new mix compilation Porterhouse in January 2006. This will be eagerly anticipated, especially after his debut artist album HOMEGROWN has already garnered such high praise as the “future of dance music” (BPM MAGAZINE) and as an “infectious new sound that blends elements of funk, techno, retro-electro, trance and progressive house.” (INNERPHASENY.COM) The album release will be supported by a full U.S. & world tour with the Porterhouse experience going on the road featuring elaborate decorations, stunning visuals, live performances and of course, cutting-edge Porterhouse music. Steve will also hand pick guest artists to be featured during the Porterhouse nights including long-term collaborators (Agent 001, HDS & Bons, Joe Mama) and international guests DJs.

This Boston transplant and adopted New Yorker is the son of a famous scientist and as such, Steve was always somewhat of a prodigy. With the support of his mom (she baked the apple pie on the cover of the HOMEGROWN album) and strong mentoring network (Chris Fortier, John Digweed, Sasha), his talents have manifested into a successful musical production and DJing career. This one-time high school prom DJ and wedding mobile disc jockey has artfully amassed a musical arsenal of over 50 original productions and 30 remixes (including Amber, Iio and Andrea Britton remixes) and is now playing alongside one of the world’s most revered DJs and is quickly coming into his own limelight. In contrast to his humble persona, Steve continues to stand at the helm of the dance floor enthralling clubbers globally.

Get ready for your next helping of Porterhouse coming to a city near you!
