EDC Memories

Samir's favorite memory: Seeing Porter Robinson during his World live show at my first EDC in 2017. Got to share that experience with Alec, who was also seeing Porter for the first time. 


Alec's: Figuring out how to even find Samir for that Porter Robinson Worlds set and the jubilation of finding your man amidst a wild crowd after being separated for a while.  


Samir: thook // Soundcloud // Instagram // Twitter // Menace to Society (track)

Alec: UNIIQU3 // Soundcloud // Instagram // Twitter // Body Pump (UNIIQU3 remix) (track)
