not really into that, but courious about general thoughts
If you're a late bandwagoner like me, it's pretty great but if you were around before it died, it's probably overrated as fuck.
Nowadays it's pretty much just people half-assing chopped & screwed with random anime references or pitched-down 80s hits.
back in 2012 I listened to Floral Shoppe and never thought about it again, thought it was a one of a kind. Then I got into vaporwave through Saint Pepsi, though it's a very different style
speaking of Sade, one of my first tracks used a Sade sample
I like the artwork and some of the music, as well as the nostalgia factor, but I don't get into the socioeconomical message on capitalism.
It's genuinely good. Although it's really annoying that pretty much everyone on the internet has heard it and thinks it's some ebin joke akin to Death Grips now.
What's not to get?
You should stop asking.
I understand it, I just don't get into it.
Key word being into.
I swear people are reading every other word I say today. :/
Sorry m8, I looked for it on Soulseek last night, didn't see it there either. Why do you want it so badly?
I remember a thread where somebody was claiming to be Vektroid and affirmed this. Most people were skeptical about whether or not it was Vektroid but whoever it was identified an obscure sample from a song and posted a picture of Vek's glasses. I would find it in the archive if I knew what to look for, but it's at least a year old by now.
like for their philosophy?

then why not just ask what the best sounding vaporwave is? what the fuck does "ideological" even mean to you then? and why are you listening to a genre that is shit if you only listen to it for the sound?
>not knowing I was a different person
No IDs are a beautiful thing
Still, I like the sound and look of the genre - reminds me of my dreamscapes and how the world used to be.
Don't worry, I don't need recs, was just messin with ya.
Strange, I find it excellent. Don't ever get feelings of nausea, just nostalgia.
Yeah, here's all results of her tripcode she used to use in the archive
See I don't get this. Every time /mu/ says a song has soul, it sounds as vapid as can be. Every time /mu/ says a song has no soul, it feels like the music is alive, beautiful, moving, full of inspiration and soul.
I fucking swear I have an alien soul, ya'll niggas ain't right.
Doesn't work like that - only atheists wear fedoras.
1. buy the latest Apple laptop
2. purchase all 40 of the top 40 hits on iTunes
3. purchase some Beats headphones
4. go to your local shopping mall and listen to the purchased music on your beats while holding your laptop and walking around
5. purchase expensive perfume from one of the stores
6. go home and sleep with the same 40 songs playing. You will have a dream in which you are taken to the virtual plaza
7. when you awaken, you will understand vaporwave
Musically, vaporwave is a type of plunderphonics - music that heavily samples other music - the specific kind of music it plunders is old commercial and pop music from the early 90s.
Artistically, vaporwave is a collection of old low-res 3D graphics like you'd see in Myst or AOL combined with ancient architecture/art and japanese characters - all of this and the music are done to give a feeling of nostalgia. Some would also argue there is an alien feel, but the word I like to describe it with more is dreamlike.
Philosophically, it's supposed to be some offshot of the punk movement and of all things a musical joke, with the subject being corporate consumerism.
But getting into the whole philosophy of the culture is unnecessary to enjoy it, as musically it's very close to genres such as chill and lounge and the art is very nice. Just like punk rock, you can enjoy it for the sound and style while not giving two shits about the message.
Fuck off. As if it isn't https://martymcfly420.bandcamp.com/album/-
I wouldn't be surprised if Chuck Person was Luke Morris. I mean. It wasn't Vaporwave but it could have been early Eccojams. I wish I had downloaded it for that guy that always asks for it though. There is definitely something mysterious about it if he took it off and if people are asking for it.
That's fucking it. I told you to stop, but you didn't listen. I'm sending a copyright notice to the L&C of Cyan Worlds against you. I already screenshotted your bandcamp page, and even though you deleted it, you can send a request to Bandcamp for a cache. I've already done this twice for unlicensed sampling and had them threatened with copyright infringement.
I am a sad person with no musical tallent and was enjoying making this music. Oh well. I will never post Myst again if that really is the case that I am coming off sad. Not because of the copyright reason threatening me but because I thought that people might actually care about me on here. I will never post under Luke Morris again.
I had fun being one of you though for a little while.
Or maybe you could have just not been an autistic faggot by spamming it everywhere and faking hype and instead have been a normal decent human being by sharing it honestly in moderation. Nice sob story though.
>checking the instagram of an old crush
>he is unironically into vaporwave and stuff like yung lean
>photos of him squatting wearing nike and bucket hats
did i dodge a bullet /mu/?
I liked Chuck Person's A3 or whatever. It's a chill song, reasonably pleasant. The samples are nostalgic. I don't really get the hate. It's not insanely impressive or anything but whatever.
My humble opinion:
The music is not that bad, it's enjoyable. But it isn't breaking any grounds or anything like that (musically), it relies too much on the sample not making much difference from the original in my opinion.
Now some over-analysers like to see this thing as a depiction and mockery of an era blablablabl*buzzword*blablablabl*Am I deep right*blablablabla. My response to their thoughts on that is that music is just music, adding meaning and context on its own does not change its intrinsic musical value. Call me a purist, but knowing how some members of the band loved to rape corpses does not add meaning to their music, maybe to their aura, but that doesn't bother me. Music should evoke outside of the context.
>TL;DR It's not that good, people love to identify shit and feel like they explore new ground when they don't.
It's all sound of Eccojams + concept of FSV + nostalgic Tumblr graphics. What's sad is the idea of eccojams was that they could be done by anybody and some people decided to mush all that together and use it as a platform for attention, and Dummy entertained it. It should have just stayed people doing sunsetcorp-style videos on YouTube. It's also ridiculous how Vektroid acts like she's the authority on it. Daniel's practice has been bastardized to hell and James doesn't have anything to do with it. That frame came in went in his usual fashion
*PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT*
Artists like マクロスMACROSS 82-99, Yung Bae, and スーパーセックス永遠にSUPERSEX420 aren't vaporwave, their french house. They're also not future funk because future funk is a term coined by people to young and/or generally unaware of what french house is.
Nah, basically I just think it's a good post.
> filling in a specific argument for other people and addressing it.
is talking about this:
>Now some over-analysers like to ...
since you're arguing against a specific idea that not everybody holds.
Same here - it's just so relaxing and full of nostalgia of simpler times
WHAT IS THE BEST MICROGENRE IN YOUR OPINION?
say the one with best concept and the ones with best songs.
PS: sometimes someone create a genre with a good concept, but that only crappy musicians tried to make it, and so only bad songs were made, this would be a song with bad songs, but this doenst mean the genre itself is bad
If the res on this picture sucks ill just post it again cause i think it is, but idk
omg she is literally perfect. I bet she has a tight muscular body and reeks of the sweetest stench after a work out.
>implying I'm casual
>implying I don't want to be anal-vored by my dickgirl waifu

This chart sucks, even though I'm pretty sure you aren't a rea l interested person, just a reply DC made to post this shit shill chart
