post more vaporwave
Well, I don't know what happened to the thread I tried to post so I guess I'll just post it here since it's somewhat related.
Any good future funk artists? Where do I begin exploring this genre.
Alright future funk condensed:
Most of it sucks. Maybe not "sucks" per se but the genre as a whole is pretty boring. There are a couple solid releases and then everyone else copied them and reduced whatever the genre had going for it into some banal cookie cutter shit. Future funk is worse about this than most genres because of how rigid the "definition" of it is- which has more to do with people's expectations (which are very very low).
In summary, Hit Vibes by Saint Pepsi is probably the best future funk album taken as a whole. Some of his other stuff is definitely worth listening like Empire Building. Sailorwave is good but Macross is mediocre over his discography. Aloe Island Posse has some solid tracks and theres like one Moe Shop EP that I tolerate. Fuck Yung Bae
So any suggestions for albums or single tracks that use no lyrical samples from funk?
I know about 2814. I also know that slowed down funk is a foundation of the genre, but was hoping there had been some more original attempts at this point.
I don't get future funk.
The good thing about vaporwave was that it took incidental music (something we'd hear a lot but never actively listen to) and made it drugged out and likeable, and made a new song.
But future funk just takes funk singles and does practically nothing to them. There's no reason not to just go hear the original singles. I heard one of the things from ArtzieMusic and the lack of editing was outrageous, it's essentially stealing.
Hit Vibes is good and really fits the definition of future funk perfectly, but it's honestly a little boring. Definitions be damned, some other great albums that are future funk but aren't always given attention or don't fit the definition perfectly are:
Flamingosis - Flamingosis
Sloslylove - Can't Get Enough (pic relate, one of my faves)
Spazzkid - Desire 願う
Some great labels are Keats Collective and Business Casual. Most good future funk, nu disco, etc can be found on those two labels.
Copped this during the final repress of 80 cassettes. The page was up for a month or two though and it just sold out; I just got probably one of the last ones. Anyone get theirs?
Alright, the album should be up on soulseek, username conicu
My new vaporwave album, to be released on cassette in the next week.
Stereo Sunset - DRone 駅
I'd love some feedback!
>Came in to talk about Future Funk
>Learn that Future Funk is shite
now I hate it. Why cant I just enjoy music without looking for /mu/'s opinion first?
same applies for vaporwave tbqh
both are just chopped and screwed samples of old 80s music, often times being negligibly different from the original track because the "producer" is some lazy fuccboi kid. but if it sounds good, really who gives a fuck?
personally i dig future funk, but i prefer the original jap city pop/funk stuff it samples that I wouldnt have discovered without listening to macross/st pepsi/etc.

Did you just describe most electronic music?
>2011-2012: lel wtf is this elevator music meme shit
>2012: A E S T H E T I C S
>2013: dude vaportrap lmao check out my tumblr with sadboys and adidas :( #emotional
>2014: future funk is the new shit bois strap on your roller skates and your nice glass of yr pepsi cola woooooooo!
>2015: DREAMCATALOGUE memebient, "yeah its post-ironic satire of e-asia capitalism globalized society interconnecting with one another etc. its totally real bruh"
>2016: dead fad next to yung lean, surf punk, metalcore, etc.
The vinyl is terribly priced, almost $50 shipped, so I just got the not not fun tape instead, dream catalogues prices in general are pretty terrible, the not not fun tape was only $7, about half of what dc charges.
Hardon Collider - Neon Dream Casino
80s Japan was a hyperconsumerist society built upon having the latest technology and many thought they would eventually take over the US like some people think China will now.
A lot of their tech and aesthetic from that era reflected a "futuristic" sensibility that seems laughably antiquated now, but fits the neo-retro sound/aesthetic of vaporwave. Plus kanji looks cool and 99% of people can't read it so you can name your album something ridiculous.

>Name your Price
No ones going to take your music seriously if you don't take it seriously guy.
Also why don't you take out the track sampling the beloved 420 and remove the vaporwave tags, or replace it with another sample, but don't let your music be associated with a MEME.
Its alright otherwise desu, keep moving.
R23x isn't really vape either, but good album and a pretty decent list nonetheless
We should make a chart of what contemporary vape labels are going and their key releases/artists
I miss fortune 500
Because it's DJ music. It's interesting and exciting the first time that you hear it and jam out to it and dance to it, but then it goes the way of a soundcloud track you listened to for a couple of days then forgot about.
That's why I'm not all about future funk, anyway. I wouldn't say that I hate it, but I really just consider it more of a style of DJing.
I'm gonna be honest
It's cool that you made shit but it sounds like a cross between VHS Logos and Delroy Edwards Slowed Down Funk. The aesthetic is a little bit too cassettey for my taste. Mac+ is much more abstract, VIRTUAL is very clean and loud.
Is asking for recommendations frowned upon? I only just started listening to Vaporwave, so if someone could help me out that'd be great.
So far I've listened to pic related, Eccojams Vol. 1, Far Side Virtual, Floral Shoppe, Hit Vibes, Blank Banshee 0, Empire Building, Bae, and Sailorwave. Out of those, I probably liked Hit Vibes the most and Far Side Virtual the least.
It's fine for what it is. It's just that it's basically Japanese pop music from the 80s with very little treatment. Thus you could theoretically just look up city pop on youtube and get an authentic experience.
My main issue with it is that it latches on to a very specific part of the narrative. Also Saint Pepsi considers himself to be an ambassador to vaporwave when he has nothing to do with it unlike OPN, Ferraro, and a Portland transvestite. He doesn't even make future funk anymore either.
ok now im obsessed with this track
where can I download this guys?
(also a nice pic to appease the vaporwave gods)
What is that picture?
Also, yeah, I never really cared for Far Side Virtual. I love the early digital sound, but I found the concept pretty hammy.
You should listen to Vektroid. Color Ocean Road is great. Also, Sacred Tapestry. Basically anything that Vektroid has ever touched is great in some capacity.
What is there to like?
This is worse than Daft Punk taking and looping that one disco track on Human After All.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RGLbFS1Y5I is the album in question. It was actually released only two months after Ecco Jams, so it's one of the earliest examples of Vaporwave out there. Pretty abstract though.
And thanks for the suggestion, by the way. Also, is Vektroid/Macintosh Plus actually a grill? Someone needs to confirm this.
Oh, I figured that it was alternate album art for skeleton. Fucking fantastic album, probably listened to it 100 times. That art is so much cooler than the mountains one imo.
Ramona Vektroid is a transgirl. I'm not an attention-seeking liberal fuck who gets behind all that to feel good about myself, but I can get behind Vektroid as the music itself is pretty genius.
It's what the youtubecore crew does with any track. I mean, the music can be kinda tight in a novelty way, sure, but they seem to be the weekend hipster types are late to something and wanna cash in on cool kid points.
How do you know this? It took me long enough just to find a name. And yeah, I liked Floral Shoppe unironically, so I'll give Vektroid's other stuff a try.
thanks man I appreciate that.
i put it at a name your price because it seemed like no would want to buy an obscure album. What do you suggest I put it at?
And yeah thinking about it that was kind of a dumb choice. I was trying to do a vaporwave song of a vaporwave song to be all edgy and postmodern and stuff and thats the one everyone knows but yeah. Good idea.
Why do these faggots get away with no citing their samples? Or in this case, their blatant shitting of. And they're fucking charging for their shitty music.
You get kicked out of academia for plagiarism of the smallest degree yet these retards can steal songs, turn them into shit, and profit off of it.
I guess it was a pretty silly question. Of course it's possible for someone to make their own oldies inspired instrumentation, and add verious effects ect. Im sure there are some who would put in the effort.
Can we get a fucking documentary on telepath please?
I wanna how the fuck he churns these out so quickly, in such lengths, and yet they're mostly all top notch
At least a tour of his studio
cmon HKE I know your itt
I finally got around to listening to ▣世界から解放され▣, and I have to say, [spoiler]it is the worst thing I've ever heard. 0/10[/spoiler]
Help, I'm liking vaporwave unironically.
>I'M GIVIN UP
>TO SELL YOU THINGS
>THAT YOU AINT BUYIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING
can you guys give me more music that's vaporwave but decades before vapowave? as in both sound + AESTHETICS
stuff like pic related
do you realize how hard it is to make people list to 0/10 music? Internet Club should be given the international medal of musical freedom
Finally breaking people of the habit of producing "good music"
I remember the first time this cropped up on nodata, probably getting on for 2 years ago now. Downloaded it, but never listened to it, regret that now, because it's p dank and that's all I ask for
it's a forced meme that came out of reaction's to that vaporwave documentary last year where kids only found out about that album for the first time
the irony is that album was a bigger meme like 3 years before when it first hit the scene and was added to the original vaporwave chart on this board
Sloslylove is the dopest thing to come out of this genre.
I have all of his shit on my MP3 player. I never go on road trips without his Tendencies album. It's easily my favorite driving music of all time.
I found out HKE has an earlier alius called 'davwuh', these videos alone made me very certain it was him:
He disabled comments on all videos on the channel after I posted a comment saying it was him.
