WATCH: Porter Robinson make his debut as Virtual Self

This post was originally published on this site


A verifiable commodity, tickets to Porter Robinson‘s debut show under his Virtual Self alias sold out in minutes. The overwhelming demand for tickets to the performance would later prompt event organizers to shift the show from its original location at Avant Gardner to The Brooklyn Hangar warehouse to accommodate the massive crowd.

While those in attendance at the show got an extended glimpse of Robinson’s newfound Virtual Self entity, those not present can still experience the ethereal production of Robinson’s inaugural appearance under the moniker thanks to a fan that recorded nearly two-hours of the initiative, giving Robinson’s fans an appropriate gift this holiday season.

Porter Robinson x Madeon – Shelter (JayKode Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Porter Robinson and Madeon’s “Shelter” collaboration was unequivocally one of the biggest tracks of 2016 — in fact, we even named it our #3 top track of the year.

While remixes of the blockbuster collaboration pervaded 2016, “Shelter” has now received a refreshing facelift from multi-talented beatsmith JayKode. The LA-based producer lays down a charmingly sedative backdrop for the vocal anthem, transposing the vocals to give it an entirely new feel.

It’s a highly inventive spin on the track. As it happens, it was never meant to be a remix. “I had no plan to remix shelter since the original was perfect in every aspect,” JayKode writes. “I was actually working on a hip-hop instrumental and messing around with some guitars. Then I started plugging in different a capellas just for fun and when I plugged shelter in, it was complete magic.”

Listen to JayKode’s remix of “Shelter” below, and download it for free here.

Inukshuk – Moving On ft RAABERS

This post was originally published on this site

Inukshuk has released his newest single titled “Moving On,” which features RAABERS. The Toronto-hailing producer and singer released a live instrumentation remix of Porter Robinson‘s “Language” back in June and has since been making strides with his own original work.

The Canadian producer’s newest single sees him incorporating the same virtuosic live samples used in his “Language” remix in order to supplement his already refined production methods. “Moving On” is a noteworthy glimpse into the current state of electro-pop. Complete with an infectious vocal sample, harmonious piano melodies, and rapidly shifting drum samples, Inukshuk creates ear candy for those that seek it.

The track further advances Inukshuk’s relatively green catalogue, joining the ranks of tracks like “The Long Road Home,” “We Were Infinite,” and “A World Away,” further solidifying Inukshuk on the electro-pop global sphere of influence.

Virtual Self – Ghost Voices (AWE Bootleg)

This post was originally published on this site

AWE has revealed a remix of Virtual Self’s ‘Ghost Voices.’

Virtual Self, a new alter ego from Porter Robinson, first released the track in his debut self-titled EP. Now, AWE flips the script on the track, altering its structural nature from a deep ballad to trap anthem and injecting his own blend of askew drum samples. AWE’s expansion of the original track is a testament to his experimental production M.O., an element which has certainly payed off on this rework.

Multi-talented Mat Zo has let some more of his personality shine through on his Twitter. The Brit-born producer unleashed a tweet storm of self-recorded home videos of himself performing The M Machine‘s “Tiny Anthem,” along with a cover of close friend Kill The Noise‘s “All In My Head,” on his ukulele. The Grammy-nominated artist is an obvious fan of Porter Robinson as well, with his very own renditions of “Flicker,” “Language,” and Robinson’s debut single under his Virtual Self alias, “Eon Break.”

What incited the quirky little jam session? His girlfriend being sick on a rainy day. The string of ukulele covers shows a unique side of Zo’s talents and provides a fun and refreshing look into another side of his music and personality.

This post was originally published on this site

Porter Robinson caught his fans off guard in October with the sudden reveal of a new single and alias: Virtual Self. When the dust cleared, the anticipation for the first productions from Robinson since his seminal 2014 LP Worlds was at an all time high.

Not content to follow a convention rollout plan, Robinson relied on a mysterious phone number, mysterious marketing, and an utterly byzantine website design to reveal more about the project.

Happily, the wait is now over and Virtual Self’s debut EP is finally here. The self-titled release marks a significant departure from Worlds and explores themes of technology and religion, while making clear allusions to the sounds and styles that dominated the 90s. It is also another indication of long known fact: Robinson is a true chameleon and an artist of the highest order who can seemingly reinvent himself at will.

In a barrage of events over the course of the past month, Porter Robinson has debuted a new alias, released two songs under said alias and announced the debut show for the Virtual Self moniker.

The artist has also shared previews of the songs in the tweet below.

This post was originally published on this site

The hype around Porter Robinson‘s new project, Virtual Self, is quickly approaching a fever pitch. The producer caught fans off guard with the release of the first track under the new alias and has been surreptitiously unveiling details around the project’s first show — likely to be held in Brooklyn. Now, the producer has yet again unveiled a new track with little warning: “Ghost Voices.”

In contrast to Virtual Self’s first track, “Eon Break,” which at times became utterly frenetic, “Ghost Voices” demonstrates a more reserved tempo and energy. Still, the producer’s talent for clever production choices and an ear for melody are on full display — though, perhaps the most intriguing facet of the track is that Virtual Self seems to be a project of considerable breadth in style.

Porter Robinson‘s mysterious Virtual Self project is slowly gaining clarity. Days ago, a Reddit user shared what appeared to be a poster advertising the first live Virtual Self performance, uncovered in Brooklyn after a recent Madeon show.

Robinson’s Virtual Self alias has only continued to garner attention, tweeting a phone number at 12 PM on November 7. The tweet was deleted not long after its posting, but the number, linked to Lake Park, Iowa remains active. When dialed, the number plays an existential pre-recorded message that Reddit user, admiraldaniels has transcribed in a Reddit comment here.

The phone number and message are representative of Robinson’s gradual underground exposition of Virtual Self, a revelation that for now, seems designed to depend exclusively on verbal, viral advertising. While this type of promotion can have its detriments — what with its lack of concrete physical evidence — Robinson’s elusive publicity strategy has already proved successful, amplifying curiosity among fans. Those interested in trying their hand at deciphering the mysterious phone message may call (712)-432-4609.
