AOTW | 30 January – 5 February: 被遗忘的时光 – forgotten time
forgotten time is an album of “fishvapor” brought to you by Tetra Systems, a label that features saki the fish “and his aquatic friends”, according to the label’s home page. forgotten time is a mixture of hypnagogic drift/slushwave and classic-style vaporwave, striving to achieve that muffled sound when one’s head is underwater. It’s quite successful at it: forgotten time is an entrancing track that embraces long-form ambiance and shorter, more overtly “classic” classic-style tunes. The longer songs are cumbrous, looming out of the darkness of the mix like a shipwreck slowly coming into view within the green waters. Highly recommended for some modern slushwave and drift music from the latter half of 2016, and it is a great introduction to a relatively small label that is making its way in the scene.
