Porter Robinson Shares Heavy New Virtual Self Track “Angel Voices”

virtual self

Porter Robinson has definitely been keeping us on our toes with all things Virtual Self. Having recently updated his virtualself.life website to announce his side project’s debut headline tour, UTOPiA SySTEM, Porter threw us for another loop this week with what seemed to be an alternate reality game starting from a new website - angelangelangelangelangel.com. But today the cryptic new wormhole has (seemingly) been explained as Porter has just shared a brand new Virtual Self track, titled “Angel Voices”.

When Virtual Self began, Porter made it clear that the project was made up of two distinct entities - Pathselector and technic_Angel. Similarly, Porter split his releases as either being attributed to one of the two characters, with Pathselector having created "Ghost Voices" and "a.i.ngel", and technic_Angel being responsible for "Particle Arts", "Key", and "EON BREAK". However, this latest offering can be considered an edit of sorts. Although at first listen it sounds incredibly similar to Pathselector’s “Ghost Voices”, it has a much faster, longer and more of an industrial/hardcore structure and feel to it, which is all characteristic of technic_Angel. This paired with the fact that technic_Angel is featured on the cover art for this latest release leads us to believe that we may see more cross edits from both Pathselector and technic_Angel in the future. Check out “Angel Voices” below and make sure to enter to win tickets to see Virtual Self at HARD Red Rocks on August 2. Enjoy!

Porter Robinson Officially Announces First Ever Virtual Self Headline Tour "UTOPiA SySTEM"

virtual self

Porter Robinson just announced the first ever VIRTUAL SELF headline tour. Porter has been touring festivals as VIRTUAL SELF since he launched the glitchy alias late last year but a full-on North America headline tour shows us that he’s ready to take this project to the next level. The first show Porter played as VIRTUAL SELF was in a warehouse in Brooklyn and it gave us a glimpse of the visionary production and forward thinking music that this project brings together to put on a mind-blowing show.

Porter cryptically teased at a tour earlier this week by hiding the GPS coordinates of venues in the forum section of the VIRTUAL SELF website and fans quickly pieced together that something big was on the way. The full reveal includes 12 new shows, two of which are “[CLUBSYSTEM]” shows that the website describes as an “intimate club show”. Check out the dates below and sign up for presale tickets here. Keep an eye out for more dates to be announced, the website says the west coast should be getting some shows. Enjoy!

It Looks Like Porter Robinson Just Cryptically Announced A Virtual Self Tour

virtual self

This could be huge. It’s been eight months since Porter Robinson launched his new Virtual Self alias with his self-titled Virtual Self EP and published his cryptic website, but some new activity on the site’s separate forum may have just hinted at a Virtual Self tour.

Although Porter has made quite a few festival appearances as Virtual Self so far this year, we’ve been left wondering what the future of the side-project might look like - but today we may have just received a major hint. Yesterday (July 9), Virtual Self tweeted a pic of the homepage for virtualself.life. As this seemed a bit suspicious, fans began to flood the site only to find that it had been recently updated with what appeared to be GPS coordinates now present throughout the forum. Upon further inspection, reddit user agentfancy found that each coordinate corresponds to a specific venue across North America. While we're still waiting for more information surrounding the coordinates, it seems more than likely that Porter would go to such lengths to announce a tour. See the coordinates below and enjoy!
