//LUDOVICO-LTD// – Digital_Wave1.0

Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (bumped up to ☀☁☁ if you’re a big fan of classic-style) (Classic-style) vaporwave is dead! … Right? Well, probably not – at least, not if artists such as //LUDOVICO-LTD// keep making stuff. Digital_Wave1.0 is the fifth release out on Smirk Sounds, released in June 2016. This Swiss artist generally focuses on glitchy recontextualizations of muzak and adult contemporary […]

Bogus Collective releases “nostalgic VICTORY” by Bob Gengis Khan

Bob Gengis Khan plays ECCOJAMS to vapornoise levels on nostalgic VICTORY, newly out on Bogus Collective. This release is a seven-track mini-album of modern indie and pop songs (e.g. “Young Folks” by Peter, Bjorn and John on the title track) that have been dissected and burnt up until they’re barely-recognizable version of themselves. Expect lots of distortion and a bit […]

Datavision Ltd. – NIGHTWAVES

Recommendation: ✂ (“[untitled]”, “Get Lifted”) NIGHTWAVES is a mixtape by Datavision Ltd., an old-school vaporwave duo that consisted of Robin Burnett of INTERNET CLUB and Leonce Nelson. This mixtape consists of “booty-poppin malljams” of existing songs, sort of like ECCOJAMS but using the whole song rather than an earworm sample (with a couple exceptions). Each track consists of one song […]

Elemental 95 releases “Cult Jams Vol. 1” by Lamitina

Here’s new music from Elemental 95: Cult Jams Vol. 1 by Lamitina. This release is six tracks of somewhat glitchy hypnagogic pop that ranges from smooth jazz-slushwave to classic-style vaporwave offerings. (Yes, I’m aware how many buzzwords that is.) Recommended if you’re into the early telepath releases, but with clearer production and less of the swirly percussive aspect; also recommended […]

V//Tomo – Two Weeks EP

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ There’s a lot of this type of vaporwave out there on the market. You know the kind: short EP of ECCOJAMS tracks where the songs reverbbbb a lot and the vocalist ends up sounding like a robot soul singer with a magnet on his head. So, when is it actually worth hearing and when is it just bunk? […]
