Adventure Club are the latest to remix Virtual Self’s ‘Ghost Voices’Adventure Club

Adventure Club has dropped their remix of Virtual Self‘s “Ghost Voices.” The French Canadian duo joins the ranks of Arty, Shadient and many others who have shown their love and admiration for the 2017 standout track from Porter Robinson’s latest side project, taking on the challenge of remixing a scintillating original into their own. Porter Robinson himself even took to the track for another spin recently.

The production duo have accomplished what many have sought to do, bringing the signature emotion from the original “Ghost Voices” through in their own standout remix. Opening the track with a downtempo, stripped-back version of the track’s recognizable melodies, Adventure Club’s remix builds to take its form across uplifting, expansive synths.

Right when it seemed like rumors surrounding Porter Robinson‘s ’90s dance music-inspired alias were calming down, the producer announced that he will be embarking on a full North American tour as Virtual Self. The Utopia tour, however, is not the only news the producer has to share.

Robinson just released a surprise track titled “Angel Voices,” which serves as the technic-Angel edit of “Ghost Voices.”

“Angel Voices” is a six-and-a-half minute compilation that takes moments of “Ghost Voices” and spins them into intense trance segments, blended into harder mashups of contrasting synths and sounds. Each section of the song is seemingly its own, as is the case with most of Robinson’s productions as Virtual Self.

Shadient remixes Virtual Self’s ‘Ghost Voices’

Shadient remixes Virtual Self’s ‘Ghost Voices’Artworks 000365359512 9n7pef T

Nearly a year after his 2017 breakout EP as the first signee to Mat Zo‘s Mad Zoo imprint, Shadient has made his intent clear in the music world, and it’s dark, gritty and acidic. To prove himself further, Shadient has taken on Virtual Self’s frequently remixed hit, “Ghost Voices.” While the original from the Porter Robinson alter ego pays homage to the house and trance that were the catalysts of today’s electronic music, Shadient brings the track into 2018 with trudging kicks and brooding amplifications on the original production.

Effectively. the young producer introduces us to a new song entirely, with an equally futuristic flair as its predecessor. Look out for the edit in his sets, as he stated his intent on rinsing it throughout the coming future.

Mountain Terrace takes ‘Ghost Voices’ for a high-speed run

This post was originally published on this site

Little is known about Japanese producer, Mountain Terrace, aside from his solitary, though impressive, upload on SoundCloud: a drum ‘n’ bass remix of Virtual Self‘s “Ghost Voices.” Released just on the cusp of 2018, “Ghost Voices” acquired instant applaud, serving as the masthead for Porter Robinson‘s newly instated, “neo-trance” alias, Virtual Self.

Though the track has been heavily remixed in recent months, few have opted, like Mountain Terrace has, for such a dramatic tempo change. MT immediately propels the listener into a full-tilt drum ‘n’ bass whirlwind of an intro. However, he then moves the rendition into VS’ original, weighty, and slightly slowed trance interlude to lend the track a soothing sentiment before erupting again into an unhinged vortex of amen breaks.
