Porter Robinson confirms new music is underwayPorter Robinson Blonde

In the five years since Porter Robinson released his groundbreaking Worlds LP, the forward-thinker has kept himself busy with expanding his creative horizons. He linked with fellow visionary Madeon for “Shelter,” created a new alias, Virtual Self, and carved out an impressively successful debut behind the new moniker. He’s launched a new festival brand which takes place in Oakland this month, and now, he’s finally returning to just being Porter Robinson; and with that, new music is confirmed to be underway.

The “Spitfire” producer took to social media to announce his return to the studio, to many fans’ excitement. It is worth noting that while Robinson has steadily produced new material over the last five years, he has not released any work under his own name since 2014. Robinson was tight lipped about an intended release date, though, with his Second Sky festival around just the corner, that seems like the perfect testing ground for some new, unheard material.

Porter Robinson‘s Second Sky festival has been one of the most anticipated moments on the summer events circuit since it was announced back in March. The inaugural single-day event, hosted by Goldenvoice in Oakland, kicks off on June 15 with a stellar lineup curated by Robinson himself. The “Ghost Voices” producer is slated for two Second Sky performances, one as Virtual Self and the other a Worlds revival set, bringing the beloved live album performance back for the first time since 2017. Best of all, Virtual Self is actually the festival opener.

It is almost unheard of these days for a headliner—no less the festival’s curator—to open their own event, though the reason behind the scheduling is actually quite altruistic, not to mention smart. Robinson’s early performance is meant to encourage early attendance at the event, ensuring fans are there for the other early acts booked for the day. This year’s programming includes performances by G Jones, Nina Las Vegas, Cashmere Cat, and a late addition of Madeon, just weeks ahead of the debut of his new live show at Lollpalooza. Second Sky’s doors open at noon on June 15.

Fresh from the Grammys Red Carpet, Virtual Self has gifted fans with Lane 8‘s remix of “Ghost Voices.” More popularly known as Porter Robinson, the producer was this year nominated for the Best Dance Recording category as Virtual Self for his wall-to-wall sensation, “Ghost Voices.” Though he did not win, the track has still not only had a tremendous impact on the electronic sphere, but has also reverberated through the music industry at large.

Lane 8’s take on the release flips the track inside out, pulling the piano to the forefront and shrinking the electronic elements out of focus in the introduction. Crescendoing notes eb and flow through the forefront of the track, while the vocal dances around the new sound structure. While the remix evokes an entirely different, more pensive set of emotions and energy than the original, it still soothes and sonically pleases the listener. The remix has been released on Robinson’s own YouTube channel.

A snippet from Porter Robinson‘s upcoming GQ Japan March edition revealed the Virtual Self creator is planning a new project. After his unique production pivot to Virtual Self in order to celebrate techno sounds inspired by late ’90s and early 2000s dance music, one can only imaging which direction the inspired visionary might go. This news dovetails nicely with Porter’s Grammy Award nomination for Best Dance Recording of “Ghost Voices” made under his Virtual Self moniker.

On Sept. 8, Porter performed a sold-out show at Extended Clubsystem in LA. The set was an hour and 45 minutes long, and he played a new song, “God Rays,” which was thankfully captured on film. While luring listeners with wide, lush synth chords, Porter flips the switch and drops hard techno.
