コンシャスTHOUGHTS – Lonely Nights

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ If one were to judge a book by its cover, they’d probably think Lonely Nights were to sound like a dreampunk or ambient album with regards to those soft lights and nigh-empty sidewalk except for an embracing couple. That couldn’t be farther from the truth: コンシャスTHOUGHTS’1 2015 extended-play is nothing but booty-moving future funk and vaportrap – and […]

Unknown Artist – Question 4

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ Unknown Artist’s1 thirty-minute single-track Question 4 is a dreampunk odyssey of vague sound and hazy electronic music that will fit the bill for anyone interested in exploring that curious region of mental awareness in between sleep and awake. It calls to mind the NASA Voyager Space Sounds as interpreted by Dr. Jeffrey Thompson, whereby real-time electromagnetic data recorded […]

The Darkest Future – ????????

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ The Darkest Future is a somewhat curious figure. And alias of D▲RKPYR▲MID, this artist put out one of the most contentious albums of 2014, Floral Shoppe 2, which is either a satire on the nigh-obsession with Macintosh Plus’ classic or an onanistic bad joke. Many members of the scene quickly wrote off the project and turned their attention […]

Vincent Remember – (私たちの休暇) [EP]

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ Vincent Remember’s brief five-track, sixteen-minute extended-play (私たちの休暇)1 is telepath-esque hypnagogic vaporwave with downtempo electronic music influences. The longer songs are the best ones: these allow the artist’s chillness get into its own groove, especially with the moderate-bpm drum sampling utilized. A couple other songs have a future funk feeling to them, but they’re not as fun as the […]

fuji grid tv – prism genesis

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ prism genesis is better viewed as a nineteen-minute gestalt than it is a collection of seventeen individual tracks. This record is one of the first of the broken transmission scene – by which tracks are sampled from old commercials, soundtracks, and similar media in microsong format in order to create the impression that one is listening to a […]

esc 不在 – midi dungeon

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ Other than being from the same artist behind Macintosh Plus, fuji grid tv, and Vektroid – Ramona Xavier – there really isn’t much that separates esc 不在1 from the rest of the pack. midi dungeon (and its sister album black horse) is a basic classic-style vaporwave half-hour-long release of sound compilation and minimal editing. Tracks begin and end […]

王阳明 – 屯蒙

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ 王阳明 is a music producer based in Beijing, China; whose albums revolve around the concept of Chinese traditional philosophy and literature as described in the Book of Changes. There are sixty-four hexagrams within the Book, which are either “broken” or “unbroken” (a parallel to yin and yang) and are divided into an upper and lower trigram. Each trigram […]
