What's the appeal of vaporwave?
>>
It's a meme. The broad masses like memes.
Note how the most successful pop music is heavily based on memes.
The less meme there is a piece of music, the less popular is. Example: avant-garde
>>
It's not a "meme"

It is genuinely chill music with a nostalgic element. All the samples make you think of the days of Windows 95 and old grainy TV commercials. I lap it up.

Those are memes.

A meme (/ˈmiːm/ meem)[1] is "an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture."[2] A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols, or practices that can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals, or other imitable phenomena with a mimicked theme.

Note that memes are not necessarily bad. To the contrary. They just are.

1990s samples are the major meme in vaporwave.

That doesn't make the vaporwave genre itself a meme.

I use memes, am I a meme?

does anybody have the link to the bandcamp where the guy uploaded a fake eccojams vol. 2 with just a slowed-down version of Stayin' Alive by Bee Gees?
>>
>>51160729
But what is in a meme? A Vaporwave cassette by any other meme would be just as grainey.

AOTY

I like vaporwave because it creates a unique atmosphere, it's fun to find the hidden gems among all the shitty releases, and because when I had a mustache I let it be too wide. Do you have a grooming guide for them
