Virtual Riot has a knack for creating both bass heavy and lighthearted originals, while sometimes combining influences to create emotional yet heavy-hitting tracks. Throughout 2016 we featured just a handful of smooth new releases from Virtual Riot, including singles “In My Head,” “Flutter” and more. This sound has taken the producer in a more future bass-style route as of late, highlighting the fact that you really can’t place Virtual Riot into any box. Today he’s proved that once again with the release of “Pixel Forest,” a dreamy original out now via Spirited’s newest compilation.
“Pixel Forest” is a fitting name for this track, which brings to mind video games and other virtual worlds. In addition to this, it highlights the softer style that Virtual Riot sometimes takes on for his releases. The song has many layers that playfully bounce off of one another – including wobbly melodies, atmospheric synth patterns, lush buildups and breakdowns, and much more. If that isn’t good enough already, the single is also available for a free download. Check out “Pixel Forest” below and enjoy!
