Porter Robinson Says Creative Struggles Led to Virtual Self in Grammy Interview
Published on February 21, 2019
Porter Robinson gave an interview on Virtual Self at the Grammy's red carpet event.
Prior to Sunday's Grammy Awards ceremony, Porter Robinson had the chance to speak with red carpet hosts about his creative outlook as Virtual Self and nomination for Best Dance Recording.
Robinson's track "Ghost Voices" was beat out by Silk City & Dua Lipa's collaboration "Electricity" to win the award. Despite the outcome, Robinson reaffirmed it was an honor for him to even be nominated. Recognition from the Recording Academy was well outside of his personal expectations for the project.
During the red carpet interview, the "Ghost Voices" producer commented that Virtual Self was an outlet for him to overcome creative struggles surrounding his work as Porter Robinson. To his surprise, he discovered the song was up for a Grammy via Twitter.
Robinson also gave insight as to what makes the perfect dance recording, attributing it vastly to the "tension and release" the producer strives to create. He capped things off by giving the spotlight to a few producers making music similar to Virtual Self who fans might also enjoy.
