From the humble surroundings of the north east of England, near Newcastle, Darren Porter began his musical journey experimenting with keyboards and pianos and without the ability to read music and not one music lesson he was able to learn what made music work, from this he began to write small film scores for independent short films, but his real passion lay with electronic music.
Whilst not ready to let the world hear his music Darren held back until he was happy with what he could hear, he then entered the “Dave Pearce Bedroom Producer” competition which he won after Dave heard his track “Termination” only hours before the show went live before it was subsequently signed to Oceanstate Recordings giving Darren his debut release as a trance producer.Since then his upward spiral as a world-renowned producer has been relentless and shows no signs of waning any time soon. His music has seen releases on some of the scenes top labels. Releases on Armin van Buuren’s “Armada Music”, Sean Tyas’ “Tytanium Recordings”, Aly & Fila’s “Future Sound of Egypt” such as “Split”, “Whiplash”, “The Potion” and his “Neptunes” series of collaborations with Ferry Tayle. With 6 Beatport No. 1 positions in the past 24 months alone, including ‘Inertia’ which was voted Tune of The Year in 2018, Darren Porter has established himself as one of the top producers in the trance genre.
