To quote one of Porter Robinson’s last additions to his Worlds live show: “I have a feeling that after this, reality isn’t going to be the same anymore.” Although he did not play any Porter Robinson material when DJing under his new project Virtual Self, the quote came to mind at the end of his
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.
Virtual Self has been on of the most exciting story lines in the final quarter of 2017. After his collaborative Shelter project with Madeon Porter buckled down to start a one of a kind story about his new moniker, Virtual Self. The alias represents an in depth narrative about two mysterious and unique characters. The
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.”

Porter Robinson’s latest side project has been the talk of the town. Virtual Self is the gift that keeps on giving for Porter fans. After a long time of no new solo music Porter announced his new alter ego, and many different characters along with it. Path Selector and Technic Angel are two characters which
Additionally, Porter Robinson‘s technological-utopian alias, Virtual Self, will be making its festival circuit debut. If the festival serves as an indication of what will take place next year, this won’t be the only Virtual Self festival appearance of the year.
2018 is shaping up to be Buku’s most eccentric booking to date, from beloved acts like Migos to MGMT or the dark tunes of REZZ and BlackGummy, the festival is sure to be a must-attend event come next spring.
Buku’s final phase three announcement is set to come after the new year.
Tickets are on sale December 6 at 11 a.m. CT. More information is available here.
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.
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.
My gf is sick in bed and it’s raining so I’ve been figuring out how to play all my friends tunes to pass the time. I’m sorry for filling your timeline with ukulele covers
