If you’re not already all over Porter Robinson‘s side project, Virtual Self, you should be. The artist announced his headlining North-American Virtual Self Utopia Tour, spanning different cities across the US.
This performance combines two sets into one — from each of the two Virtual Self “producers”. One is technic-Angel, who plays largely trancey techno, and the other is Pathselector, who plays a more hardcore sound. The immersive performance will bring fans into a world of mutated 2001-era warehouse rave complete with custom-built lighting and unparalleled stage production. Penned as one of the most unique upcoming shows, Porter truly takes care of the way his sets are experienced and put on.
With Virtual Self, Robinson tries to express an early 2000’s visual aesthetic, looking to “combine three tropes from the period that didn’t overlap much at the time: digital abstract, arcane magic design, and digital grunge, all into a single early-aughts flavor,” drawing from his own.
Get ready, Porter fans. There’s a whole new opportunity to see a whole lot more of Virtual Self
