Porter Robinson has been busy lately. With the launch of his new side project Virtual Self, he dropped his first EP under the alias, played a New York show in a warehouse and made a surprise appearance on Holy Ship! 10.0. Now he’s shared the first visuals to go along with Virtual Self music. The first music video under the side project comes for his song “Particle Arts” and features CGI rendered plants and futuristic holograms pairing bright imagery with the versatile tune. Enjoy!

Watch Porter Robinson Make Surprise Appearance As Virtual Self On Holy Ship 10.0

Virtual Self Holy Ship

As Holy Ship 10.0 departed last Saturday (Jan 6), many were skeptical as to how the five-day cruise would play out now that founder Gary Richards was no longer part of the event. But as we’ve already witnessed an insane b2b from A-Trak x Louis The Child x Hotel Garuda and a hilarious notice to guests about fornicating with pizza, 10.0 seems to have been nothing but smooth sailing so far. To top off the weekend though, it seems rumors of Porter Robinson being aboard were confirmed, as he made a surprise appearance for his second ever set as Virtual Self

Since dropping a debut EP and playing his first ever how as Virtual Self toward the end of last year, we were left wondering if Porter’s new moniker was here to stay. But after showing up on lineups for Buku Music + Art Project, Ultra Music Festival and now his surprise appearance on Holy Ship, it seems as though we’ll be seeing much more of Virtual Self in the near future. Check out a snippet of Virtual Self’s Holy Ship set below and enjoy!

Watch A-Trak Flip Porter Robinson & Madeon's "Shelter" Showing Off His Insane DJ Skills

Veteran DJ and TSIS favorite A-Trak is back one more time before the close of 2017 with the latest installment of his #REALDJing video series, this time a quick flip of “Shelter” by Porter Robinson and Madeon. This marks the end of a busy year for the turntablist in which he linked up with top electronic and hip hop artists for impressive collabs like “Fern Gully” & “Dumbo Drop” with Baauer or “Believe” with Quavo and Lil Yachty. 

Launching these huge collabs hasn’t stopped A-Trak from doing what he does best – live chopping beats in creative and impressive new ways. In this edit of “Shelter” he starts by scratching up the iconic opening melody before throwing it through a filter and manually building up to a drop with sliced up synth hits. As always A-Trak’s version of the track is fresh but familiar enough for listeners to appreciate how he decided to augment the original.

If you liked this flip check out A-Trak’s take on “Rockstar” by Post Malone and 21 Savage in another fantastic #REALDJing video. Enjoy!
