LOTW | 17 July – 23 July: Question Records

Our fourth label feature is Brighton, UK label Question Records! Question Records is owned and operated by Methyr, who has produced vaporwave-inspired music since early 2016 and has produced music through the neoclassical (or classically-influenced) project Te Amo! – exclamation mark included.

AOTW 10 July – 16 July: Lindsheaven Virtual Plaza – Transversal Worldwide Shopping

What is “transversal”, and how would it be applied to worldwide shopping? Well, maybe Lindsheaven Virtual Plaza has the answer. Transversal Worldwide Shopping is the pseudonymous artist’s most out-there release.

AOTW 22 May – 28 May: death’s dynamic shroud.wmv – #NUWRLDの気持ち

Here’s a weird one, and I’m sure that the creators would agree. #NUWRLDの気持ち by death’s dynamic shroud.wmv gave rise to the titular NUWRLD movement within vaporwave, which is the auditory equivalent of deep fried memes. Tracks are constructed much like classic-style vaporwave – samples of video games, pop music, and muzak – but they’re wrung and contorted to an almost […]
