Porter Robinson tells GQ Japan he has a new project, Virtual Self track surfaces in LA
A snippet from Porter Robinson‘s upcoming GQ Japan March edition revealed the Virtual Self creator is planning a new project. After his unique production pivot to Virtual Self in order to celebrate techno sounds inspired by late ’90s and early 2000s dance music, one can only imaging which direction the inspired visionary might go. This news dovetails nicely with Porter’s Grammy Award nomination for Best Dance Recording of “Ghost Voices” made under his Virtual Self moniker.

On Sept. 8, Porter performed a sold-out show at Extended Clubsystem in LA. The set was an hour and 45 minutes long, and he played a new song, “God Rays,” which was thankfully captured on film. While luring listeners with wide, lush synth chords, Porter flips the switch and drops hard techno.
