Infinity Frequencies – Computer Afterlife

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ If vaporwave is often interpreted as a nostalgia trip, then Infinity Frequencies is a nostalgia trap. Computer Afterlife is the third album in a trilogy that also spans Computer Death and Computer Decay. All three albums utilize samples from old commercial tapes and Weather Channel broadcasts that have been cut and repurposed to portray a pensive and occasionally […]

ULTRACOMPUTER – INFINITE 新しい生命システムの音

Recommendation: ☀☀☁ The first of the ULTRACOMPUTER albums is only the seventh album on the TKX Vault/Tokyo Exchange label of avant-garde electronic and vaporwave music, and it’s one of the best. INFINITE 新しい生命システムの音1 utilizes repeated fragments of sound to elicit a glitched state of mind. It’s a concept that’s been done many a time – it even has its own […]

Vision Girl – デッドデッドデッドデッド

Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ デッドデッドデッドデッド1 is a nine-track extended-play and the second release from the broken transmission project Vision Girl. In contrast to the chaotic Y.2089-esque film score sampling of Film Noir and the classical music screw of Amare sanguinem, this album is entirely ambient music , signalwave piano samples, and tape-degrade overlays. It’s the most reserved album of the Vision Girl […]

INTERNET CLUB – PURE TRANCE

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ Released in November 2012, PURE TRANCE is one of the final albums released by Robin Burnett as Internet Club – excluding reissues and remixes. In contrast to the epicness of albums such as REDEFINING THE WORKPLACE and Vanishing Vision, PURE TRANCE is a short vignette: fifteen tracks, twenty-one minutes of glitchy, microsample signalwave. There are no ten-minute new […]

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. Released a few months before the (in)famous Floral Shoppe, this album is one of the most recognizable of Ramona Xavier’s early works, kickstarting the “New Dreams Ltd.” […]

Vektroid self-releases “Eden”

Ramona Xavier of the Vektroid (and many others) alias surprise-dropped Eden this morning as New Dreams Ltd. The album continues an extraordinarily productive year for Xavier, who started off 2016 with reissues/edits of classics fuji grid tv’s prism genesis and Sacred Tapestry’s Shader and continued into the summer with three more albums and a collaboration with Siddiq. Eden is a […]
