The new year brings new gifts including Porter Robinson and G Jones’ b2b set with Virtual Self from Second Sky last year. The event took place in October at the Oakland Arena Grounds where several of Porter’s esteemed friends played for one day. Last year did not see a virtual stream but it did bring lots of surprises including Skrillex and a great way to spend Halloween. Now, you can listen to two high-quality sets from the weekend – courtesy of Derek.
First up, Porter’s Nurture (Live) set. His full band rocked and knocked the performance out of the park. Just the way Nurture should have been played, fans got to enjoy an even more emotional but pleasant set of the night. From happiness to giggles to euphoria and waves of thalassic moments, Robinson delivered the best he knows how. His live performances are always a treat. He covered tracks from Nurture and Worlds with his own editions. Listen below to relive the magic. Tracklist here.

Next, the G Jones b2b Virtual Self mayhem of madness. The duo went back and forth effortlessly and performed the set of a lifetime. The crowd got to hear ‘God Rays’ again, an unreleased ID I wish would come out. They delivered frenetic energy with fiendish tracks. The emulsion of sound jet fueled the audience for the rest of the night. With three IDs between the two, ‘Ghost Voices’, ‘R.A.V.E.’, and a plethora of dark tracks, we wish this duo would play more! However, we don’t know if they’ll ever play together again, so take yourselves back below. Tracklist is here. For those that are tuning in for the first time, enjoy.
