Online Records releases “Hypotext Prototrans” by MAECEAM

Online Records’ newest album is the ECCOJAMS/vapordrone mix of Hypotext Prototrans by MAECEAM. This album is several tracks of extremely glitched-up nano-samples that achieve the auditory equivalent to semantic satiation, where those samples begin to make no sense due to the sheer amount of repetition. It’s available for $1 USD as a digital download. Check it out below:   Hypotext […]

emperor tangerine – my empire

Recommendation: ✂ (“daisy”) emperor tangerine’s debut album for TKX Vault (formerly known as Tokyo Exchnage) demonstrates the label’s early predilection for not fucking around when it came to the most extreme avant-garde music in sampling, to the extent of rivaling Scolex Recordings in terms of music associated with the vaporwave scene. Released nine days after the similarly-chaotic label debut Y.2089 […]

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 […]

Mason Guerrero – The Chernobyl Tape Decks

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ Mason Guerrero’s The Chernobyl Tapes – apart from having one of the coolest album titles in vaporwave history – is one of the earliest examples of the vapornoise subgenre. Released in December 2011, just a few months after the artist’s eighteenth birthday, The Chernobyl Tapes is a four-track extended-play of ECCOJAMS taken to an ominous extreme. Rather than […]
