It's becoming more and more clear that Porter Robinson's upcoming Second Sky Music Festival may be one of 2021's best.

Just one week after announcing a special partnership with the designer behind Universal Studios' The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Robinson sent his fanbase into a frenzy by unveiling a new musical side project. He's set to debut the alias, dubbed Air to Earth, at Second Sky 2021 and perform two sets.

"my new live-only dj sideproject called Air to Earth," Robinson tweeted alongside a preview of unreleased music. "it's focused on sample-driven, tranquil proghouse and airy disco. i'll be opening both days of Second Sky with this project!"

The electronic music luminary, who received a 2018 Grammy nomination for another nom de plume, Virtual Self, shed some light on the new project in a follow-up tweet.
