Hello everyone, and welcome to a special edition as we review Porter Robinson and friends, as they performed under their new sound Virtual Self, at Echostage recently. Porter Robinson alone is already an extremely talented act to watch so we could only imagine what his new style and performance would show us on this crisp summer night!

Porter Robinson has developed a new concept, Virtual Self. With this new identity, Porter revels in his love of early ’00s visuals 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.”
With a show at Echostage on Monday, Sept. 3, Porter will bring Virtual Self to DC.
