Business Casual releases “Excerpts from Lala Land” by 1969年

Here’s some serious classic-style vaporwave from Business Casual. Excerpts from Lala Land by 1969年 is broken transmission and signalwave aesthetics mixed with the overt samplism of 2010/2011 vaporwave styles. A lot of Business Casual releases tend to focus on future funk and chillwave, so Excerpts from Lala Land represents a bit of a change from previous styles (not that they […]

AOTW | 13 February – 19 February: テレビ体験 – Y.2089

BEMKSZZZZZHHHHHHHHHHHH[japanesemuttering]SOZAAAA. Sorry, just playing Y.2089 by テレビ体験. It’s the first album released on TKX Vault, an imprint of Dream Catalogue specifically started by cyberpunk artist HKE as a creative outlet for avant-garde works removed from his main projects. Y.2089 is one of the most abrasive albums in the entire genre of vaporwave and cyberpunk music. At its core, it uses […]

维新噩梦工厂 – 催眠疗法

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ 催眠疗法1 is the debut album by 维新噩梦工厂2 and the inaugural release of German-Chinese label Beijing Tapes, Inc. Into plunderphonics but find the hyper-experimental works of broken transmission artists such as fuji grid tv and Television Experience to be a bit too much? Then this is an album for you: 催眠疗法 is mostly edited television, popular music, and advertisement […]

Many of Cyber Dreams’ albums […]

Evaporated Sounds releases “SUNRISE ’94” by WJAR10PROVIDENCE

Evaporated Sounds is out with new music from the newsoft channel of WJAR10PROVIDENCE via SUNRISE ’94. This release plays on the concept of “weathersoft”, which utilizes samples from weather channel broadcasts and music to evoke the sense of, well, watching The Weather Channel. However, SUNRISE ’94 takes this on another route with instead reverbing and editing music from TV news […]

prism tv – cryogenesis

Recommendation: ☹ “prism tv” is a reference to the trope codifier of the broken transmission genre, prism genesis by fuji grid tv. cryogenesis is the only album from the prism tv project, and it’s a part of the overarching Telepathic Data Storage umbrella of releases from 2015-2016.1 As with prism genesis, prism tv’s album is a noisy mix of advertisements, […]

テレビ体験 – Y.2089

Recommendation: ☀☀☁ Leading off with a blast of feedback and vocal blip is Y.2089, the debut album by ニューシティ1 and the very first album from the TKX-Vault label.2 This is a constructively chaotic album of vapornoise, broken transmission, or what-have-you; being twenty tracks of stressed-out television commercials, radio adverts, long-lost soundtracks, and other sources that strain describability.3 Y.2089 isn’t pure […]
