Porter Robinson kicked off 2017 in a big way, teaming up with Madeon for their immersive global tour. However with the shows now a distant memory, time alone has led the young electronic producer to move to pastures new, and as such, has announced his new Virtual Self side-project.
Essentially a new alias which allows Robinson more time to experiment with his frantic beats, Virtual Self’s focus seems a logical next step, hearing the producer deliver ‘happy hardcore’ esque synths enthused with elements of breakbeat all the way to techno and house, and all present sonics you’ll hear in the just-released self-titled EP. Whilst heavily-recognisable as ‘Porter Robinson sounds’, Virtual Self takes things up a few notches, to a place where we rarely thought electronica could go to.
Check out the full EP below; we’re massively interested to hear your thoughts too!
