Vaporwave sub-genres. what do you consider to be the classifications?
I would seperate it into eccojams, segahaze, mallsoft, future funk, and vapornoise.
thoughts? also, vaporwave general
Vaporwave and Eccojams are the same thing
Vaporwave, mallsoft and future funk are the only ones we need
Hypnagogic, faux-utopian and vaportrap should all fall under vaporwave rather than being separate
I don't think most people take it that seriously except for those spergs making charts and arguing all the time. It's basically just a way to pass the vaportime since vaporwave has been pretty lame this year.
>Hypnagogic pop isn't part of vaporwave.
I see this argument all the time on /mu and people get flamed. Yet vaporwave artists tag themselves as hypnagogic like luxury elite, Disconscious waterfront dining, コンシャスTHOUGHTS, 猫 シ Corp., Phoenix #2772,ライフMIDI, Venture X, BBRAINZ etc. wtf is the answer then. I know about Ferraro and others are labeled hypnagogic, but it looks like it applies to certain kinds of vaporwave now?
Mallsoft and Utopian Virtual are probably my favorite. I don't get much into the whole musical joke aspect, as I sincerely enjoy the corporate dream.
>people actually take this gimmicky trash seriously
no matter how you try to justify it, just know that i will still be thinking less of you.
Daily reminder that Death Grips put their dick on an album cover just as a gimmick to make them different
And that Buckethead's only claim to fame is wearing a chicken bucket on stage
And Madvillain ripped off Marvel Comics just to get attention
I dig the futuristic stuff more, as well as the more ambient side of vaporwave. I got a friend who's bigger into the poppy stuff like Saint Pepsi and other future funk guys, but that stuff kind of all blends together for me.
>comparing at least somewhat interesting artists to forgettable crap that is dependent on a gimmick for attention
before you keep going down that way, i'm not a huge fan of any of those artists
i'm content enough for that claim not to matter to me whatsoever
why is it in a /mu vaporwave subgenres thread, can nobody have a logical discussion about this? is it because these subgenre threads and charts are really a passive aggressive way to promote albums, and nobody could really give a fuck about subgenres? seriously though, I am asking a logical faggy music question that deserves a discussion and you're ignoring it. so you know what, fuck you.
hypnagogic pop is a term used to refer to an existing form of music before vaporwave. it didnt branch from vaporwave but it is a musical style that has a lot of influence on vaporwave now
>hypnagogic pop is a term used to refer to an existing form of music before vaporwave.
yeah, no, I know, I remember those days 2009/2010, chillwave etc. the David Keenan article.
>it didnt branch from vaporwave but it is a musical style that has a lot of influence on vaporwave now
agreed. though don't you think the term can be used to umbrella older saint pepsi, macross, the artists listed here >>51221329 and anyone else doing more popish stuff? late night lofi, future funk, vhs pop whatever you want to call it, how about it's all hypnagogic pop? what's wrong with that? that's really what a lot of these guys are doing. warped pop songs. could help sort out some of the confusion.
>future funk is an EDM genre already
well, then imo i don't think it can really be called vaporwave or even a subgenre of vaporwave, that would make future funk bleep music. and vaporwave isn't bleep.
i'd have to use nu house or nu disco or french house or whatever.
Go make your own thread, m8. Oceangrunge is for the lower eldritch dimensions of music. Vaporwave, on the other hand, is on the higher planes of music. Both are good, for higher and lower do not rank status, but they do not mix.
>but it looks like it applies to certain kinds of vaporwave now?
No it's just genre crossover. All these genres (witch house, chillwave, seapunk, hpop, vaporwave, mallsoft, etc.) are all related through various scenes and artists. Even though they're all distinct, there's a lot of influences and fusion between them. With vaporwave, 18 Carat Affair was the first to really mix the two, and the releases you mentioned are all kind of the same page with that genre mixing.
if anyone is looking for an album cover, I took this picture a couple days ago.
I think the question is what's more important in vaporwave, how it's made or how it sounds? because you can't have both if you're trying to categorize it.
it's like a bed is a bed, but you have different types of beds, but how the bed's made has nothing to do with what style of bed it is.
"MIDI Presets" doesn't technically mean anything, but it's a term where people can recognize the meaning behind it easily. Yeah it's a stupid term if you have any idea what MIDI is but when people say "midijams" you can understand what kind of sounds they're talking about.
Eccojams is also reasonable imo, there is a difference between Chuck Person and Skeletons.
Fuck you then I'm out of here, have fun fuckhead, I'm trying to discuss shit here and you come along act like a faggot. Fuck off I'd rather eat something. Have good night asshole.
who's getting worked up? it's totally petty, and we'll all forget tomorrow, but it's been pretty chill. it's like water cooler talk. flakey. light. non personal. whatever. totally vape.
What makes this vaporwave as opposed to just chiptune? I've got it grouped together with all my vaporwave music and if I'm in a vaporwave listening kinda mood I can easily put this on, but soundwise I haven't heard anything else like it in the vaporwave scene. Is there anymore vaporwave chiptune out there?
Well, I was reborn there, but I came from a different world before that one entirely
No depiction in this plane can ever come close to its glory, only hint at it. It is a world of endless plains and architecture that is simultaneously alive and deserted, ancient and modern, brand new and in ruins. It is a land of ancient gods and the corporate dream often seen in vaporwave.
It is truly wonderful. Art and music here can only hint at its beauty.
