Porter Robinson‘s return to the music scene last year was a boost of energy embraced by fans across the globe. Having caught everyone off-guard with his “neo-trance” project, Virtual Self, he went on to release a 5-track EP, pushing boundaries and bestowing a new sound upon the industry, as only he could. Though he is now fully working on this new project, Porter Robinson decided to pay homage to his spectacular ‘Worlds Live’ tour turning 4 years old by releasing a new line of merchandise for fans who wish to commemorate the tour which blew everyone away 4 years ago. The merchandise is made using early sketches from Porter Robinson’s music videos and his live tour visuals. Talking about this launch he said:
i wanted to do something commemorating the show visuals, so i dug into our archives and found a lot of the sketches from the very early development of the worlds live visuals (as well as concepts for music videos of songs played in worlds live).
so in honor of the 4th anniversary of the first worlds live show (which is today), here’s our line of worlds live sketches merch!
(also, the kaomoji was drawn by me, which is why it looks so weird)
Porter Robinson recently announced some additional dates in his North American ‘Utopia Tour’ as Virtual self, which kicks off with a performance at New York’s Electric Zoo on Friday, August 31. Every show on the Utopia Tour will combine techno, 2-step and trance as well as experimenting with styles like gabber, jungle and hardcore from. This diverse musical curation combined with custom-built lighting and stage production will make the tour like nothing Porter Robinson has ever done before. Be sure to check here for more information on the tour.
The collection is available now to pre-order and will start to ship on September 24, 2018. Be sure to get in on the exclusive merchandise here before the limited items run out.
