Vaporwave - anyone feeling this style of music?

Been checking out a few bits classed as 'Vaporwave' recently. It's a sub-genre of music that gained somewhat of a following around 2010 and has been steadily growing ever since. 
 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaporwave
 
Vaporwave is a musical micro-genre that emerged in the early 2010s among Internet communities. It is characterized by a nostalgic fascination with retro cultural aesthetics, video games, technology and advertising, and often involves the fusion of modern popular music with lounge, smooth jazz and elevator music. Musical sampling is prevalent within the genre, with samples often pitched, layered or altered in classic chopped and screwed style. Central to the style is often a critical or parodic preoccupation with consumer capitalism, popular culture, and new-age tropes.

 

 
Been really feeling this 2814 LP called '新しい日の誕生 / Birth of a New Day'.
 
Sort of futuristic, ambient stuff - not really sure how to describe it. Uses a lot of retro-style synths and sounds but it has a much more atmospheric feel to it as opposed to the retro 80's style stuff like Carpenter Brut, Com Truise, etc. 
 
Anyone else?

sound like the kind of music you have in a movie when the main character takes drugs and hits the peak of his high

Haven't got speakers here atm, but I'll give it a spin later- I love ambient music adding a bit of colour to the environment- been getting into the 70s Eno thing recently

Heard bits about it, lots of guys in the Chiptune scene seem really into it and I've been getting massively into that recently. Will give some of it a proper listen later.

Not enough percussion for me. Sounds like 00's ambient met 90's trip hop

Most awful name for a genre/sub-genre I've ever heard I think.



It was called jungle in those days, not drum and bass. That came later

I was about to say we've got to a sort of 'post music' stage and this stuff is defined by the concept rather than the sound, then I found this which explains it well:

I wasn't in to the 2814/Hong Kong Express stuff, kept getting bored waiting for the chords to end.

The description is among the most pretentious things I've ever heard. I like the music though.

This has just been re-issued on vinyl on Dream Catalogue. 
 
It's a hip-hop / trap / vaporwave type release. Crisp beats and hypnotic synths. Some really nice beats on there - worth checking out for sure. 
 
You can listen to the whole release by clicking the link above.

Yep, certainly has that sound to it at times. It's not strictly that Autonomic sound but it makes an appearance every now and then.

So Vaporwave has no average BPM? it appears to spread from 120 to 180ish (or down to halftime howver you count it)

Found this stuff is pretty good to listen to when trying to get some work done or reading, no real distractions etc and just some nice background music.

Yeah it's legit, kinda nice to listen to. Gonna try it on the Metro.

I'm really not sure I'll still like it in a week though. 

Name is shit but who cares
