Virtual Self – a.i.ngel (i_o Remix)
Ever since Virtual Self, a new project by Porter Robinson, released the Virtual Self EP last month, the remixes have been rolling in, to no one’s surprise. While his two singles before the release of the EP, ‘EON BREAK’ and ‘Ghost Voices’ have been subject to several remixes, up-and-coming producer i_o decided to take on the massive five-minute track ‘a.i.ngel’ (Become God).
i_o flips Virtual Self’s glitchy maximal track into a bass-heavy electro remix with house elements. i_o successfully retains the original track’s elements while putting his own dark and powerful spin on the song.
Jauz included the i_o remix of ‘a.i.ngel’ as a special gift in his Bite This Xmas! compilation which he dropped on fans Christmas day. Bite This! is Jauz’ new indie imprint dedicated to showcasing up-and-coming talent, as evidenced by this compilation.
With only one original song to his name, a dark and glitchy track entitled ‘Warning,’ i_o recently signed with Mau5trap. He also recently released a collaboration with Tommy Trash entitled ‘Oxygen.’ Not bad for a new artist! Clearly, the big names in the industry have already taken notice of this talented producer and we will definitely be seeing only bigger and better things from him in the near future.
