Porter Robinson, who is currently focused on his new Virtual Self project, dropped a surprise music video for track “Key.” The video takes place in the virtual world Robinson created with this new project, and the video features what appears to be an orb traveling through space and time.
What is even more elaborate than the video itself is the description on YouTube:
The infinite sky will heal us. Unlimited sky will fill our negligible light. As we follow an infinite key, I have become the sacred echo. The boundless heaven will fill our fading light. Choose your virtual echo. The infinite key is the sacred dust of your endless utopia. Complete yourself in self-realization. You believe that these infinite heavens will lead you. The A.I.ngel’s gate is sacred. Your angelic echo offers the first phase of self-Digital joy. You will become a self-Echo in real particles. Our key is the echo to this final layer. You are spread through digital time. The utopian gate is infinite. Your A.I.ngel wishes to complete this layer. This abyss is sacred. Pass through the myths of eon. Your technical soul is this blissful void. The eternalistic reflex of the abyss is once-Unlimited. Your digital voice is resurrected. Breathe this soul particle. The ray of egoistic time is unlimited. Resurrect this holy oblivion. The echo of this empty myth awakens you. Awaken the particle myth. Reflect your echo. Heaven’s wires will transmit this light. Experience the wings of limit. Your technical A.I.ngel phase is beginning. Complete the eternalistic reflex. This wishful ghost becomes self-Technic. Tears will create the voice of euphoria. The digital-Awakening will be spoken. The first gate creates sense-Awakening. This angelic-Chasm is sacred. The technic-Angel’s cry is beginning. The first gate will provide the voice of digital-Euphoria. The digital-Angel-Awakening is has reached Limit Self. The self-Light is virtual. This will become the final particle-Experience. Will your senses ressurect the digital-Vault? Do you sense the phase of the Spirit Limit? Can you reflect your self-Awakening? Am I convinced of a digital void? Can you reveal this particle of sacred reality? Will these ghosts lead to a boundless cry? Can you echo your existence to the first particle? Is the technical-Gate timeless? Do you believe an infinite sky will cure the digital soul? Is the joyful-Layer complete? Will our ghosts lead to the boundless layer? Will our layer will be lost from this empty myth? Have you resurrected this heaven’s voice? Has one experienced the particle? Do you trust in this transformative self? Will you forget your soul’s reflex? Has one seen the Abyss of the resurrective ego? Have I forgotten the phase of soul limit? Is the A.I.ngelic sense boundless? Have you completed the virtual light? Am I eternal? As the sacred dust transpires through digital time, what will you become? Do you believe in me? Am I still human? Do you manifest yourself in digital time? The unlimited sky begins – will you believe in my infinite form? As you abandon the virtual echo, do you no longer exist? Can you prove yourself to the echo of this particle? Do you believe the infinite sky — the holy dust of nothingness? What is revealed – a holy reality? Am I convinced of nothingness? Do you sense the void angel? Will the echo of virtual time be forgotten? Does one want to forget the memory of life? Has my virtual-Echo been forgotten? Has the sense of digital-VIRUS become heaven? Will you self-Believe the joyful sky?

Last night, Tiësto began his annual marathon of astronomical birthday celebrations (his birthday is January 17th), and to mark the occasion, the City of Las Vegas decided to give him a little something special.
As the Dutch superstar stepped out of his Aston Martin and entered the lobby of the MGM Grand, County Commissioner Steve Sisolak presented him with the Key to the Las Vegas Strip. In addition, January 14th has been formally honored as “Tiësto Day.”
“I am thrilled to present Tiësto with the Key to the Las Vegas Strip. Bringing his innovative talent to the Strip in conjunction with Hakkasan Group, Tiësto has changed the face of the DJ world. Through his dedication and passion for his work, Tiësto continues to be an inspiration, not only to other DJ artists, but to all Las Vegas performers.” – Sisolak
Tiësto’s residencies have become a staple of Las Vegas’ nightlife, and similar to Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival, the globally renowned producer/DJ has had a lasting impact on the city’s economy. Join Tiësto in celebrating his 48th birthday with his first single of 2017, “On My Way.”
The city of Buffalo is way out in the hinterlands, a whole lot closer to Toronto than it is to New York City. But if you listen to the feverish and ferocious Buffalo rappers Westside Gunn and Conway, Buffalo sounds like some undiscovered sixth borough of NYC — a place where Southern rap sonics and … More »
In July, Flosstradamus teamed up with “White Iverson” star Post Malone to release the wistfully hopeful future bass track “Came Up.” The song also features contributions from Graves, Key!, and FKi1st. Now, the trap-influencing duo have released a music video to accompany the song, which looks back to their origins and celebrates their success.
The video begins with Flosstradamus’ Curt Cameruci, who produces under the Autobot moniker, reminiscing about the duo’s early days in Chicago, formulating the blend of hip hop and electronic music which would define their career:
“Josh and I were trying to come up as DJs in Chicago and we would try to play these hip hop parties and try to play these house music parties and it just didn’t…we didn’t fit in anywhere. And so we just started our own night…We wanted to do what we wanted to do and I think a lot of kids in Chicago wanted that too.”
Clearly, Curtis and Josh’s assumptions were accurate, as seen in the packed, frenzied crowds in the concert footage which permeates the video’s latter half. Flosstradamus’ contributions to the trap genre have earned the duo headlining sets at major festivals across the country as well as a number of high profile collaborations. It is safe to say, as the song and video suggest, that the duo have “come up” strongly.
A$AP Rocky was just named Creative Director for MTV Labs, a new creative incubator developed in partnership with the Harlem rapper.

Flosstradamus‘ long-awaited collaboration with Hawaiian producer Graves and vocalist PostMalone (along with FKi 1st and Key) has finally arrived, seeing a welcome departure from the producers’ respective styles towards a more downtempo, future bass-infused heater. Having been teased at live shows for the past several months, the respective fanbases of the contributors can now finally jam out to “Came Up” in full. It’s also now available for purchase here.
The track starts with Post Malone’s over a resounding series of atmospheric synth pads and distant percussion hits. Suddenly, it opens up into a future-bass laced anthem, complete with dubstep screeches and a driving rhythm. The vocals make appearances in between the breaks, transforming the euphoric vibe into a joyous singalong.
Flosstradamus are the undisputed original dons of trap music, but their creative process spans much further than patching together massive 808s and hip-hop samples. Stepping away from their norm on their latest release, Flosstradamus recruit producer duo FKi and Graves on “Came Up,” finished with an infectious hook and verse work from Post Malone and Key!. The track finds Curt and Josh flexing their production muscles, proctoring a summer-primed, R&B-inspired future bass piece with a creative blend of talent all lending their contributions on “Came Up.”
Since Flosstradamus mashed up Post Malone’s breakout hit “White Iverson” with Jack Ü and Justin Bieber’s inescapable “Where Are Ü Now” a closer collaboration between the Chicago trap lords and the emerging young rapper became imminent. Now we find Post crooning about the hardships of the “come up” complemented by impressive production work from Floss, FKi and Graves. Listen below:
