Windows 98の – これは魂のために

Recommendation: ☀☀☁ これは魂のために1 is the second full-length by Orlando, Florida vaportrap artist Windows 98の, released in January 2015 only three weeks after ブルースクリーン (BLUE SCREEN 001). In contrast to the ecstasy of the インターネット EP, これは魂のために shows Windows 98の’s gentler and somewhat more experimental side, including the introduction of the crystal-clear production style that has become his trademark. The album […]

メディカル – UNDERDOSE

Recommendation: ☀☀☁ Wanna be sedated? Listen to UNDERDOSE by メディカル.1 It embodies the essence of the Acid Medical label: semi-kitschy visual aesthetics with long yet suddenly ending drone tracks. Along with killkore, UNDERDOSE comprises the lengthiest and songs of the Acid Medical library, sounding like the final put-under before a possibly life-threatening surgery, where the mind wonders whether or not […]

ULTRACOMPUTER – DECISION MOMENT

Recommendation: ☀☀☁ On 5 November 2016, the lights at TKX Vault flickered for a brief moment with the release of DECISION MOMENT, an eleven-track EP from ULTRACOMPUTER. It came as quite a surprise, seeing as how TKX Vault notably shut down following the release of Hong Kong Express, the much-publicized swan song of the Hong Kong Express project by HKE. […]

Remember – ルートバックホーム

Recommendation: ☀☀☁ Remember, remember the 5AM streets of Tokyo. That’s how the saying goes, right? Remember’s deep-city ambiance rivals only that of HKE in its evocative nature. ルートバックホーム1 – the artist’s debut for himself and on Dream Catalogue – creates extraordinarily vivid soundscapes through the barest yet most beautiful of synthesizers and field recordings. It’s a true application of the […]

Digital Sex – Zones

Recommendation: ☀☀☁ Perhaps best known for his collaboration with Oscob, Digital Sex is a Wisconsin producer who dabbles in classic-style vaporwave, hypnagogic drift, and 16-bit music. Featured on high-profile compilations that include The Eternal Dream System and 95 Elements, Digital Sex has received a large amount of producer clout since the start of his vaporwave career. Zones is his fifth […]

t e l e p a t h テレパシー能力者 – アンタラ通信

Recommendation: ☀☀☁ アンタラ通信 – translated and referred to as Antara Communication – begins with its centerpiece: an eighteen-minute odyssey through the foggy realm that is inhabited by the codifier of ambient vaporwave, telepath. Like a marriage between City Developer and telepath’s Virtual Dreams Plaza, this album defines the very essence of dreampunk music: gorgeous synthesizer mush that rocks the descriptor […]

被遗忘的时光 – forgotten time

Recommendation: ☀☀☁ Like a ship’s outline in the turbid sea, forgotten time looms out of the cloudy fishvapor of Tetra Systems. Coined by label owner saki the fish, fishvapor describes music that mixes classic-style vaporwave with an “underwater” production style to sound especially hypnagogic and floaty – like a really drunken night where you happen to fall overboard but are […]
