Acclaimed producer and songwriter Porter Robinson shares the music video for his latest track, “Mirror.” This is the third track to be released from Robinson’s forthcoming full length, Nurture. In the video, Robinson uses Live2D face-tracking technology to map his own facial movements onto the hand-drawn avatar. Thus capturing his own live expressions and performance of the song.
“Mirror,” which Billboard called “a dance track with a beating heart and grandiose ambitions,” follows the DJ NOT PORTER ROBINSON and Anamanaguchi remixes of “Get Your Wish.” “Mirror” marks the third offering from Nurture, following “Something Comforting,” which finds Robinson in a moment of “melancholic introspection” swaying “between heavily layered production and subdued instrumentation” according to UPROXX, and the original version of “Get Your Wish,” praised by The FADER as “a skittish glimmer of a track that climbs its way up to total euphoria.”
At age 18, the North Carolina-based producer and songwriter Porter Robinson burst onto the scene in 2010 with a specific magnetic brand of electro-house beats. His debut album Worlds was released four years later in 2014 to widespread critical and commercial success. The album established Robinson as a mainstay of electronic pop and a deft crafter of “gorgeous textures, contemplative storytelling, and remarkably sharp melodies,” as The New York Times remarked.
Following the major success of his debut album, Robinson released the acclaimed single “Shelter” with Madeon in 2016, followed by a Shelter Live Tour spanning 43 dates and five continents. The following year, in an attempt to display his growing interest in interdisciplinary art and Y2K trance, Robinson began releasing music under a new alias, Virtual Self, which lead to his first Grammy nomination for the hit single “Ghost Voices.”
