L/S Disorder – Sub World Unknown

Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Sub World Unknown by L/S Disorder is a hodge-podge of heavy metal, dubstep, hip-hop, and drone as interpreted by plunderphonics. Along with Geoflesh’s self-titled album, it’s the most avant-garde release on Dublin label Smirk Sounds. Sub World Unknown was the second release by the label, demonstrating an early predilection for experimental sounds that need not conform to one’s […]

Bedlam Tapes double release: Vincent Remember and Hantasi

Bedlam Tapes released two albums yesterday: Culture Vulture by Vincent Remember and CA S  T LE by Hantasi. The former album is an ECCOJAMS/vaporhop release that utilizes plunderphonics sampling to mix together various hip-hop/R&B samples and other pop jams. The entire album is self-referential, with several tracks (e.g. “The Jam (420 Remix)” and “Touch the Ground”) using similar samples and calling back to […]

Online Records releases “SHORTWAVELENGTH” by MIDSTYLE

AOTW | 24 July – 30 July: Darksleep – Identity Ender

For many, ECCOJAMS began and ended with Daniel Lopatin’s ECCOJAMS (producing as Chuck Person). That’s not quite true. Now ECCOJAMS certainly had its most thriving period in the early era of vaporwave (2010-2012), but there are a multitude of artists who continue(d) to release music that evoked Lopatin’s surreal vaporwave trendsetter. Identity Ender is one of those albums. The first […]

Annulus – t-Projection

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ t-Projection was the first release of Question Records, a UK label founded by vapor(-wave) and classical artist methyr. Produced by the pseudonymous/anonymous artist Annulus, t-Projection was a hell of a way for Question Records to start off. Although the foundations of Question Records are in classic-style vaporwave and ECCOJAMS, t-Projection is a highly experimental vapornoise full-length with a […]

ASCEND – ANOMALY

Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ANOMALY is one half of a two-part release1 by the artist ASCEND that was released on 29 February 2016 through Question Records. Each of its twelve tracks is designated as a new “episode” (as with its sister album). ANOMALY is full of discursive ECCOJAMS that applies varying amounts of pitch-/tempo-shifting, gain, and reverb to even more varied samples […]
