Virtual Self releases surprise video for ‘Key’

This post was originally published on this site

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?

Porter Robinson: Calvin Harris was my inspiration for Virtual Self

This post was originally published on this site

Porter Robinson‘s new “neo-trance” project, Virtual Self, has officially exploded into the mainstream. With appearances at Holy Ship!, Buku, Ultra, Spring Awakening, and Bonnaroo, the artist’s side moniker has now caught the attention of MTV News in a recent revealing interview.

Previously, a leaked insider e-mail from Robinson to his close friends had revealed his side project’s inspirations for blending trance, hardcore, techno, and more nostalgic genres. Yet, in a surprising twist, Robinson tells MTV that it was Calvin Harris‘ 2009 mega-hit, “I Am Not Alone,” that partly inspired his journey as Virtual Self to upset the electronic music realm.

The catalyst for mentioning Harris’ name was based on a previous tweet from the Scottish producer on his appreciation for Virtual Self’s instant classic, “Ghost Voices.”

“I was just really surprised when Calvin tweeted that out,” Robinson revealed. “I’ve never interacted with him before, ever, and even as Porter we never had any relationship. Often times people won’t even say that kind of thing when their buddies release new music, so I messaged him and I told him – and this is true – that I think his track from 2009 ‘I’m Not Alone’ was really inspirational for this project. It’s one of the only tracks from the last 10 years that sort of gives me that classic sort of trance feeling.”

Whether Robinson’s goal with Virtual Self was to even reach the mainstream remains unclear. In actuality, it seems Robinson detests the culture surrounding pop music, a terrain for which Calvin Harris so easily fits in. Whatever the case, Virtual Self has sparked a movement within the electronic realm that is changing the way music is experienced.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 33

This post was originally published on this site

dexter's beat lab

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.


Fresh off his debut album in October, KRANE continues to wow. His latest is a stunning remix of Dua Lipa‘s “Be The One.” Backed by top-notch sound design throughout and a series of dramatic, fluttering synths in the chorus, KRANE’s crafted a beautiful rendition of an already tiptop song.


After months of waiting, dubstep fans finally have new Dodge & Fuski material. Turns out they’ve been working on an 13-track album, humbly titled The Greatest Album of All Time, and “Mistakes” with PhaseOne and The Arcturians is one of its latest singles. The Disciple track is one of pure energy. It’s packed with the heavy wubs we know and love from both bass acts, along with haunting vocals from The Arcturians that give the track a unique flavor.


Koven kick off the sophomore installment in the Monstercat x Rocket League collaborative album series with a drumstep original, “My Love.” Katie Boyle’s heartfelt vocals put a more lighthearted touch on the verses, but other parts of the song are a whole different animal. The duo have put together a track that exudes intensity in the best way, making it the perfect kick-off for the forthcoming compilation album.


Unlike Pluto has tapped into my nostalgia. Last Friday, he released an incredibly emotive cover of My Chemical Romance‘s 2004 hit, “Helena.” His vocal-centered rendition strips down the original track to a slower-paced ballad that oozes pure emotion and passion. Unlike Pluto’s voice is so well-suited for this track, and I’ve found myself re-obsessed with it 14 years later.


Seven years and countless remixes later, Porter Robinson‘s “Unison” remains one of the greatest hits of the early “EDM” era. It’s been reworked, revamped, reshaped, and re-imagined into genres across the board — and some are truly a treat. This latest one from SYN is a substantial contender. The mysterious producer ushers in the iconic melody before plunging listeners into a sea of glitchy bass. It’s raw and harsh, but in the best possible way.

H/T to DA managing editor M. Cooper for this one.
