Vaporwave & future funk general. Rec, listen, rate, discuss
reminder that pic related is GOAT future funk
im not sure how i feel about the back of it tho
also >$40 sucks. The nice thing about this place is that they do allow you to swap sizes if you accidentally bought the wrong one, but im scared that the fit will just be bad.
Your post is horseshit. Midnight Television is what future funk should have been. It's future funk without the broporwave and still has roots in classic vapor. Shame it's so damn short though.
speeding up some vaporwave
Infinity freq is pretty solid. I don't recommend 0PN to people looking for vapor too much because he's kinda got his own thing going on. Most of the vapor being made now is either like eccojams but with more refined production techniques or full on ambient music with vaporwave style synths a la dreamcatalogue. Replica really isn't like anything else in the genre and it's a little tougher to appreciate.
It's not one thing. I used to follow the guy on twitter and he'd make passes at women and post vitriolic shit every 15 minutes all day. I haven't seen anything recently because I didn't want to put up with it anymore, but even on soundcloud he posts tracks "for his bae" & pics of his face and some girl.
I don't hate him or anything, I'm just a little irritated by him and I find it hard to separate that persona from the music, which is just old samples anyways.
plus he's buds with Macross82-99's girlfriend, who's responsible for this fucking thing https://soundcloud.com/kokayna/youre-so-fucking-pathetic-prod
I sometimes import a track into it and then use its eq. It's a surprisingly powerful program in some aspects, but it doesn't hold up as a DAW because there's not really a way to generate sounds and the beat finder is kinda shitty. Any other DAW is fine really, Fruity loops is awful at sample manipulation so I'd avoid that one.
he had a rep beforehand, right? well i posted that shekel hungry jew, so is he valid to you now? you just didn't like it which is fine. i just hate to see people reacting so bitterly to others constantly, I never think twice about whether its popular or just a kid viraling, who cares?
also, by that logic blank banshee is good...which as a connoisseur of vaporwave you must know he sucks
he used to post his music all over before he became well known. most modern post internet artists have (chillwave) how do you think opn hooked up with carlos at no fun, waiting for some random person to post his unknown music with hopes carlos would see it one random day on a random music board and put it on his label? dream on. you share it of course.
What are you even talking about? You're so butthurt you didn't understand my post at all.
He shared it by sending a demo, which is totally valid. But every time self promoters have ever been brought up, people have to repeat the exact same point over and over because the people defending it seemingly can't tell the difference between sharing music and spamming music. So I'll try to make it clear:
It's okay to share your own music in moderation when you make it known that it's you and only share it when it's relevant. Posting a link to your awful music every time someone asks for a rec and pretending you're just "a fan", and posting it in every vaguely related subreddit is spamming. There's a massive difference, and I guarantee you 0PN never spammed.
oh no, I agree man. I think his 'demo' was a pm through a noise music board or something though, but it doesn't matter. I don't know if he spammed and but who cares.
The point I was making was in response to this
>Make good music and people post it for you. You think 0PN posted 50,000 links to his music all over 4chan and reddit to get where he is?
in that, it's not like he just made an album and magically thousands of people suddenly started sharing his links and he was a noise sensation.
>Posting a link to your awful music every time someone asks for a rec
honestly, I've seen so many people come on to /mu/ asking for rec's (like even yesterday) asking for SPECIFIC things, and everyone basically ignores it if they don't like that style or it's not fitting THEIR agenda, because /mu/ only seems to want to recommend the same records and nothing else, even though the person asking for rec's has probably already heard most vaporwave and is looking for something SPECIFIC. But /mu/ obviously really doesn't know, because when the artist has to take it upon themselves to recommend their own record in the style that's being asked, or LOSE a potential fan because everyone is too fucking egotistical to rec their album even though it fits the rec to a fucking tee, that's really just a sad day and really fucking sucks.
That's a pretty specific scenario, man. I don't see it happening too often that the music anon A makes just so happens to be exactly what anon B want's to hear. Besides, if it's a good recommendation, that fact will be clear to everyone and nobody will question whether or not the person who made the rec is viralling. We have an issue in these threads with people who do what >>51908248 said and it happens every thread
mostly I can tell if someone is viralling if they don't have a: fanbase which exceeds 1000 people or a label or friends. friends/label viral for them....months later the music is now valid through constant arguement then slow acceptance. see>>51908840 pryavid for example
Nice generalization, but Mc Jew has been caught out on viralling so many times. Go search reddit for his name and you'll see just how rampant he virals. The only people that get called out that often are people who do it fucking everywhere like Timid and Poseidon.
Also it didn't fit the rec to a fucking tee. He asked for "good" and "ambient". That garbage was neither.
The reddit search function is notoriously shitty. It'll pull up everything you didn't search for. If you have the patience the only way you'll get them all is by searching by link.
>I don't see it happening too often that the music anon A makes just so happens to be exactly what anon B want's to hear.
it happens though.
>Besides, if it's a good recommendation, that fact will be clear to everyone and nobody will question whether or not the person who made the rec is viralling
that's cool. though I've seen other anon's accused of being me when they've posted my music.
Yeah, >>51908272 is annoying af
Can someone just upload a folder of all the essential Vaporwave of the year already.
There's too much shit to sift through.
I've never viralled, how many times do I need to explain this? One guy posts oceangrunge constantly, and it isn't me or Sea of Dogs. It's Shanoxilt who runs the oceangrunge sub-reddit.
jesus christ put forth a smidge of effort. at least as much as vektroid put into floral shoppe :^)
So what happened to that whole "OCEANGRUNGE WAS JUST A JOKE AND MY ALBUMS WERE A MEME NOW I'M GOING TO LEAVE FOREVER. THIS IS THE LAST POST UNDER MY NAME EVER." Mommy and daddy not giving you enough attention?
I did, and you still never answered it. It's because I'm right, and you couldn't go a single day without showing your face because you're so starved for attention that, despite literally everyone hating you and telling you to leave, you still come up expecting things to be different.
So go ahead, answer the question.
Are mommy and daddy not giving me enough attention? I guess not, since I'm in my mid-twenties and moved out of my parents house many years ago.
Everyone on here seems to wish to just project this personality theyve crafted about me onto me, based on Shanoxilt's spamming of mine and everyone else's oceangrunge music, when the cold hard truth is that oceangrunge was just a fun little side project I did. The whole thing would have died months ago if Shanoxilt never kept spamming it all the time and nobody would listen to my Poseidon in Chains albums and nobody would listen to the Sea of Dogs albums, either.
God you're a cunt. Instead of manning up and taking responsibility for being a sperg you shovel it all off on Shanoxilt and blame him for all of your shortcomings. The reason people hate you isn't because of some secret tactics by Shanoxilt, it's because of all the posts under your own trip.
And that was a pretty lame attempt at dodging the question. The question is: So what happened to that whole "OCEANGRUNGE WAS JUST A JOKE AND MY ALBUMS WERE A MEME NOW I'M GOING TO LEAVE FOREVER. THIS IS THE LAST POST UNDER MY NAME EVER."
You said you were never go to post under your name again, that everything to did was secretly a joke, and that oceangrunge is dead in a thread where you failed horribly at damage control. And the very next day you show up trying to pretend it didn't happen. So you're admitting none of that was true and that you were just trying to cover your ass?
Poseidon, just stop. You're embarrassing yourself again.
Also for the record I do produce shit, and it's at least 300 times more popular than anything you've done. But that's besides the point.
So explain why you hate me? I literally couldn't give a fuck though, I just find the whole situation funny. The fact that you can actually hate an anonymous person by the name of "Poseidon" so much is pretty cringeworthy.
I already answered that last night, I said I came out of retirement to become a journalist.
Why would I need to do damage control for a little side project that I did? The fact you think I place any importance on my "oceangrunge" work only shows your own level of stupidity.
Just as the fact you took pic related seriously. It will forever be proof that oceangrunge was a hoax from day one and you fell for it. That hurts you, so you lash out and hate me for it. I can't help that
Anyway, can we please stop fucking talking about oceangrunge every time I show up in a thread?
well no im not poseidon, your a fucking child getting so ramped up over drama that exists in your head. who really gives a shit if some nobody shills? who gives a shit if some dude posts something on a message board? apparently you do, a lot. if it weren't for the fact there are other kiddies like yourself, no one would remember or care about tiny bullshit. but we gotta hear it, every thread. shut the fuck up
>So explain why you hate me?
If you can't tell why everyone hates you already, you're going to have a very tough time in life.
>I already answered that last night, I said I came out of retirement to become a journalist.
T o p k e k
What a lame excuse
>Why would I need to do damage control for a little side project that I did?
Because it's the best you've got. But you're doing damage control right now so you can answer it for me.
>The fact you think I place any importance on my "oceangrunge" work only shows your own level of stupidity.
>it's totally not important to me that's why I've posted hundreds and hundreds of times defending myself and oceangrunge
>Just as the fact you took pic related seriously
>implying I take anything to come out of you or broceangrunge seriously
>implying you didn't use this same damage control before and it didn't work
I don't know buddy, you seem way more ramped up than me. Most of the reason I'm even posting is because it's hilarious seeing you fail and stumble trying to make excuses. You seem genuinely upset though.
>implying I'm stupid enough to post any of my actual projects
Here's the buzz from my latest project from 6-7 months ago. It's far from my only one too.
>If you can't tell why everyone hates you already, you're going to have a very tough time in life.
You've literally said nothing other than I "viral!" which I have proven several times isn't the case. Why would I spend any time viralling a tiny side project of mine that I made to poke fun at /mu/ for?
>What a lame excuse
Yet again more proof you have a low IQ and can't grasp a basic lighthearted joke.
>I don't know buddy, you seem way more ramped up than me. Most of the reason I'm even posting is because it's hilarious seeing you fail and stumble trying to make excuses. You seem genuinely upset though.
I'm not, I sit here laughing everytime I write these posts because this whole situation is so absurd.
Like, if I really was who you say I am, why wouldn't I just stop posting entirely and start a new project? It's not like I have a huge fanbase as Poseidon in Chains that I need to rebuild.
My main project has over 10000 listeners on last.fm (no it isn't vaporwave before you try and even bother to guess who), Poseidon in Chains has 60. I think that shows how unimportant PiC is to me. This idea of "damage control" is actually really funny to me.
i see your still playing the game of who can upset who the most, I remember that when I was 14.
oh and how can i forgot the fun game of who is more right the the other, i played that when I was 16.
also you didn't post your legendary music? :/. I don't hate him, so you got the everyone thing wrong.
oh my god you are a huge snob
justin bieber has like 1 billion times the amount of views as you, he is 1 billion times better then you.
>You've literally said nothing other than I "viral!"
Actually I've directly and indirectly mentioned how egotistical, obnoxious, moronic autistic, socially inept, and childish you are, but I was trying to avoid stooping down to your level of childish namecalling.
>Yet again more proof you have a low IQ
>I'm not, I sit here laughing
I-I swear guys t-this is totally funny! See how hard I'm l-loling?!?
>My main project has over 10000 listeners on last.fm
Post proof or bullshit.
That's just two of my many projects. Now please shut the fuck up about all this "damage control" nonsense, okay?
Poseidon you need to pop your head in a freezer or something.
Shit, you're right. Coldplay are the #1 most played band on last.fm, so they're at least 259 million times better than me. brb killing myself
And finally some proof that PiC is a mere side project that would have 0 listeners if Shanoxilt hadn't spammed oceangrunge everywhere for the past 3 months.
that wasn't poseidon. also the two things you said after claiming I was someone im not, has shattered everything you said in this thread congratz. im almost sure your a troll or a disgruntled producer
>Actually I've directly and indirectly mentioned how egotistical, obnoxious, moronic autistic, socially inept, and childish you are, but I was trying to avoid stooping down to your level of childish namecalling.
I'm asking for proof? Let's talk in a rational manner.
>I'm not damage controlling, that's why I'm replying to every post to defend myself!
Also that's cute that you learned how to inspect element. Here's my real project ;^)
I'm actually the most popular bandcamp artist in the world, but this isn't even my main project I swear. Here's my real stats ^
>I don't even know how to do that
>Yet again more proof you have a low IQ
The funny thing is, you're the guy who brought up the Bandcamp stats in the first place, so how do I know you didn't "inspect element" from the start? Mine blew yours out of the ocean and now you seem pretty salty about it.
Today in /vaporwave/... A frustrated Anon battles it out against the dreaded evil virallers and one of the creators of oceangrunge, and in the process wins over the hearts and minds of the community. proving once and for all that only good decent hard working artists can prosper on the internet.
Actually I mentioned it was besides the point, but you insisted. And 5k more total listeners on a project older than mine (which is 1 album that I never once posted) that you and Shano viralled rampantly doesn't count. Mad props on the ocean puns though
Why would I care about the respect of a bunch of over-emotional, low IQ teenagers?
I only come here for the great keks. I should actually stop though, it's just a huge waste of time
The first goes back two years, the other goes back about 1.5 years, maybe less. Neither of them are vaporwave related.
I didn't get 30k hits on PiC, I got 3k with that name. Nor did I ever once viral it, yadda yadda. The 30k one is a side project, and the one that had smoething like 120k is my main project.
I mainly make money from sound design and making original music for indie films though.
Stop being so sour, it's unbecoming
So that means you only had 5k more views over a year and a half period? jej
And about that low IQ thing...
Which one, the creme de la meme one or the ones Vekt was selling herself? iirc they were both scams and never shipped
For my side-project, yeah. My main project has 120k or whatever.
Anyway, see >>51910837
I've said a fuckload of times I don't even want to talk about oceangrunge, but everyone can't help but bring it up everytime I enter a thread.
If anyone wants their vaporwave album reviewed by me, let me know. Last night I reviewed Twistpillar's and my first Poseidon in Chains album.
>original music for indie films
Slowing down grunge music over iphone videos doesn't count
Yeah, the one with the statue with the laser eye. I don't know if it ever got officially confirmed as a scam like Creme de la Meme, but I remember everyone complaining that they never got theirs and Vekt posting something on twitter about there being a delay due to her living arrangements or something. But that was a long time ago
I'm happy for you, yet I've never viralled. Like I keep saying, why the fuck do people keep thinking I care about a silly little side project I did? You've even seen proof now that it's insignifcant to me, so what more can I say except shut the fuck up?
Funny thing is I never even did paulstretched grunge for PiC, either. Try listening to it before judging. Yeah, I made it all in one day and it's really rough, but I didn't slow down grnuge tracks. That's what almost everyone who copied me did.
>why the fuck do people keep thinking I care about a silly little side project I did?
Probably because you just spent a couple hours on an anime imageboard defending it. If it was really a joke you'd just laugh it off and do something productive. For someone who says they're in their mid-twenties, that's infinitely more pathetic.
Oh my stars.
In your original melt-down during the godhaze thread you yourself said you added yourself to that stupid oceangrunge chart, even if you claim "it was a joke".
If you want my advice, change your trip and stop hogging threads
>iirc they were both scams and never shipped
how the fuck can everyone respect Vektroid so much, and this is what he/she pulls on paying supporters?
I've never heard of such shit. I's not really okay to rip people off.
An octave, really excessive sidechain compression, and shitty album covers.
Oh, my mistake.
Playing middle C on prepackaged softsynths and slowing it down over iphone videos doesn't count
I did make the entire "essentials" chart on the exact same day I made all 3 of those albums. Of course it was all a big joke. Your inability to be able to see this only continues to prove your low IQ, or excessive pride.
Yeah, you're right, I just want to talk about vaporwave though but nobody can shut the fuck up about oceangrunge
