VIRTUAL SELF - KEY OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO OUT NOW: https://youtu.be/zdLhJ9lB5x0
Porter Robinson has always pushed the boundaries of dance music. His ability to captivate audiences with hard hitting electro, mellow emotional synth wave, and now aggressive DDR inspired Neotrance is nothing short of incredible. Being greatly inspired by his new project, Virtual Self, I wanted to pay homage to the sounds and styles he’s brought his fans to love over the years. My remix of ‘Key’ is aimed to capsulate the massive piano parts from his earlier hits such as Language in combination with the indie synth sound from his groundbreaking album, Worlds. Pulling on your heartstrings with massive chords and trailing melodies, I hope you enjoy my remix of ‘Key’ 💛
I've been listening to a lot of Virtual Self lately. While at first listen I found the EP to be way too DDR for a kid whose eureka dance song was Leave The World Behind rather than Sandstorm, when I kept listening, the EP revealed a lot more Porter than I first noticed. Porter Robinson has been an inspiration for me throughout his musical career because of how good his is at doing the unexpected. He can take a sound that I don't know I'm into and master it so well that I can't get enough of it. That's what Virtual Self is - it creates a sense of nostalgia for a music I never felt nostalgic about. That's where this reboot comes in. I wanted to infuse my own sense of nostalgia into what Porter created. I never sorted Beatport by release date and listened to every trance song from 1998 to 2003, but I have listened to a lot of progressive and electro house fusion. So I rarely make music like this, but I combined my own nostalgia with Porter's nostalgia and got something that I think is pretty cool. Enjoy.
Hey!! Here's my flip of Key by Virtual Self. I really loved the EP and I felt like doing a flip for Key (although it's not my favorite song on the EP but I still loved it!).
It's a bit different than what I usually do, hope you guys will like it anyways!

TRACK: EON BREAK
The infinite sky will heal us.
Unlimited sky will fill our negligible light.
As we follow an infinite key, I have become the sacred echo.
The boundless heaven will fill our fading light.
Choose your virtual echo.
The infinite key is the sacred dust of your endless utopia.
Complete yourself in self-realization.
You believe that these infinite heavens will lead you.
The A.I.ngel's gate is sacred.
Your angelic echo offers the first phase of self-Digital joy.
You will become a self-Echo in real particles.
Our key is the echo to this final layer.
You are spread through digital time.
The utopian gate is infinite.
Your A.I.ngel wishes to complete this layer.
This abyss is sacred.
Pass through the myths of eon.
Your technical soul is this blissful void.
The eternalistic reflex of the abyss is once-Unlimited.
Your digital voice is resurrected.
Breathe this soul particle.
The ray of egoistic time is unlimited.
Resurrect this holy oblivion.
The echo of this empty myth awakens you.
Awaken the particle myth.
Reflect your echo.
Heaven’s wires will transmit this light.
Experience the wings of limit.
Your technical A.I.ngel phase is beginning.
Complete the eternalistic reflex.
This wishful ghost becomes self-Technic.
Tears will create the voice of euphoria.
The digital-Awakening will be spoken.
The first gate creates sense-Awakening.
This angelic-Chasm is sacred.
The technic-Angel's cry is beginning.
The first gate will provide the voice of digital-Euphoria.
The digital-Angel-Awakening is has reached Limit Self.
The self-Light is virtual.
This will become the final particle-Experience.
Will your senses ressurect the digital-Vault?
Do you sense the phase of the Spirit Limit?
Can you reflect your self-Awakening?
Am I convinced of a digital void?
Can you reveal this particle of sacred reality?
Will these ghosts lead to a boundless cry?
Can you echo your existence to the first particle?
Is the technical-Gate timeless?
Do you believe an infinite sky will cure the digital soul?
Is the joyful-Layer complete?
Will our ghosts lead to the boundless layer?
Will our layer will be lost from this empty myth?
Have you resurrected this heaven's voice?
Has one experienced the particle?
Do you trust in this transformative self?
Will you forget your soul's reflex?
Has one seen the Abyss of the resurrective ego?
Have I forgotten the phase of soul limit?
Is the A.I.ngelic sense boundless?
Have you completed the virtual light?
Am I eternal?
As the sacred dust transpires through digital time, what will you become?
Do you believe in me?
Am I still human?
Do you manifest yourself in digital time?
The unlimited sky begins - will you believe in my infinite form?
As you abandon the virtual echo, do you no longer exist?
Can you prove yourself to the echo of this particle?
Do you believe the infinite sky -- the holy dust of nothingness?
What is revealed - a holy reality?
Am I convinced of nothingness?
Do you sense the void angel?
Will the echo of virtual time be forgotten?
Does one want to forget the memory of life?
Has my virtual-Echo been forgotten?
Has the sense of digital-VIRUS become heaven?
Will you self-Believe the joyful sky?
