The world wasn’t quite sure how Porter Robinson was going to follow up Shelter, the worldwide tour and multimedia release partnership with Madeon that included a collaborative single and anime music video with Crunchyroll. Our questions have been answered in the form of 2 singles under a moniker called ‘Virtual Self’. After releasing the first DDR like happy hardcore single from the project titled ‘EON BREAK‘, today saw the release of the newest single, ‘Ghost Voices’.
‘Ghost Voices’ is self described as ‘neo-trance’. This is a pretty good summation with the track showcasing big anthemic euphoric synths while also using some of the more tech/house-y drums whose resurgence has been made possible by artists like JAUZ and AC Slater and a number of other artists as of late. The Virtual Self project has taken a much more decided return to Porter Robinson’s roots of turning out the most anticipated DJ sets at whatever festival he appeared at.
