Porter Robinson has been on a roll with his Virtual Self project that we can't get enough of. He played the first show a couple months ago in an epic warehouse party and now he's just played his first festival performance at Buku Music & Art Festival and the full set has been uploaded for all to enjoy. He's previously said that no Porter songs will be played at Virtual Self shows and vise versa so if you're looking for an entirely different side of Porter, look no further. Enjoy!
It’s been just about four months since Porter Robinson debuted the first single from his Virtual Self side project, but he still has yet to slow down. Having recently released a futuristic music video for the song "Particle Arts" only to turn around and deliver an epic BBC Radio 1 Minimix, we’ve definitely been kept on our toes month-to-month. Today, Porter has continued his streak by sharing his second Virtual Self visual experience in the form of an official music video for his track “Ghost Voices”.
While the “Particle Arts” video seemed to yield a much more fantastical, futuristic vibe involving digital plants seemingly frozen in time - this latest feels almost eerily realistic. Set in a dark warehouse, littered with computers and oddly enough, ice, the video features the semi-transparent and sometimes faceless 3D physical forms of Porter’s Pathselector and technic-Angel egos. While we’re loving what we’ve seen of Virtual Self’s visuals so far, what’s special about this particular video is that both Pathselector and technic-Angel seem to be answering questions and interacting with fans in the comments. Check out the official video for “Ghost Voices” below and enjoy!
We can’t get enough of Porter Robinson’s side project, Virtual Self. Since releasing his self titled EP under the new moniker back in November, to his debut live show and even a surprise performance on Holy Ship! 10.0, we’ve been keeping our ear to the ground in hopes of learning any new information on the project as it surfaces. And while details on future releases from Virtual Self are still sparse, today Porter has shared a snipped of what we can expect from his upcoming festival performances at Buku, Ultra and Bonnaroo, via a 5 Minute Minimix on BBC Radio 1.
This latest offering gives us even more of an insight into what inspired Porter to launch his new project. Featuring numerous eurodance, progressive house and J-pop singles from the early 2000’s, this mix will undoubtedly give you some Dance Dance Revolution vibes right away. As Porter has been attributing each of his Virtual Self releases to either his Pathselector or technic-Angel egos, this mix has been attributed to Pathselector. Stream the Minimix and check out it’s full tracklist below. Enjoy!
