Steve Porter at Myst

New England progressive house DJ Steve Porter cleverly dubs his sound "Porterhouse," referencing not only his signature style but the gargantuan grooves he lays down live and on his debut album, Homegrown, on FDS Recordings. A protg of Sasha and Sander Kleinenberg, Porter has established himself as a dance-music visionary, garnering accolades across the bpm-related media and recording incessantly (at least 50 singles and 28 remixes to date). Porter hits Myst this Friday, June 3, to drop his amalgamation of house, funk, soul and jazz for all us desert rats. Not bad for a guy who deejayed his own senior prom.
