Porter Robinson, also known as Virtual Self, is an American music producer and DJ from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The Grammy nominee has been known to venture into various genres of music from EDM bangers to heart-tugging synthpop.

Porter is a self-taught musician and began producing music from a young age of 12. Using the name Ekowraith, he scours internet forums to share his songs. There he met and befriends Hugo Leclerc who used the pseudonym Daemon and Wayne Mont, but will be known later as Madeon. Using Dance Dance Revolution and anime as his biggest influence, Porter released a few complextro musics such as hands up and Say My Name. Say My Name itself reached number one on Beatport and garnered many attention. One of them was from the head of OWSLA music label, Skrillex.
