Windows 98の – インターネット

Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


Windows 98の is an electronic music producer hailing from Orlando, FL. He’s worked for several years refining a precise, exacted form of vaportrap that utilizes the aesthetics of early Windows computing systems – and more than just a start-up sound. インターネット1 is his first-ever release, a five-track extended-play that was originally released on Virtual Disk Systems but is now available through Windows 98の’s self-released bandcamp page. It’s primarily a remix-centered album that uses short samples of Windows proprietary sounds and pop samples with cleanly produced percussion that uses yet not abuses hi-hats. For listeners who find that tck-tck-tck-tck-tck annoying, Windows 98の is a producer who could probably change your mind on how such percussion may be utilized. The album uses AOL’s indelible “you’ve got mail!” jingle as a rhythmic force on “事務所スペース” and Ness’s shout of “PK Thunder!” from the Super Smash Bros. series on “ネス!”. Who’da thought you could do that?
