C A S I N O ☆★☆★☆ M A S T E R – ☆★☆ ボーナススピン幸運 !!!

Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Wow, this hurts my head. ☆★☆ ボーナススピン幸運 !!!1 is as if ▣世界から解放され▣ were about digital casinos instead of… well, whatever it’s about.2 The first of two albums under the C A S I N O ☆★☆★☆ M A S T E R moniker is a plunderphonics exploration of half-minute (and sometimes less) samples of nineties club music and […]

Laserdisc Visions – New Dreams Ltd.

Recommendation: ✂ ✂ ✂ (“Mind Access,” “Ewing,” “Select,” “Untitled”) New Dreams Ltd. is notable for being one of the first “vaporwave” albums in the sense of what is now known by the term.

Infinity Frequencies – Dream Recovery

Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Dream Recovery predates Infinity Frequencies’ Computer trilogy by almost a year. The artist’s fourth release, this album features many of the sample curation techniques that would make Infinity Frequencies a household name in signalwave, broken transmission, and vaporwave as a whole: classical music sources, extremely short songs, and ultra-small loops. Those who have heard Infinity Frequencies’ later releases […]

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 […]
