Also, 2814 drop an absolute world class 12" on Arcola records. 
 

 
Moving away from their purely atmospheric Vaporwave sound on LP's 2814, BoAND and Rain Temple; here they produce 2 tracks (approx. 10 minutes a piece) that touch on Techno, UK Garage (almost Burial-esque) and their signature dream-synth Vapor style.
 
This 12" is insanely good. The pressing and mastering is perfection. Really gave me the feels of hearing Burial for the first time again. So good.

I've been enjoying this stuff, especially 2814 and Remember.
 
It's nice to have a different sound in ambient music. I've been a fan of Boards of Canada and stuff of that style for a long time, but this futuristic night time asian city vibe is really cool.
 
Not sure it deserves a genre name of it's own, but there you go.



 
Good to hear you've been enjoying it man.
 
Actual 'Vaporwave' runs a bit deeper than 2814 and HKE, Remember, etc. Check out some of the earlier stuff which was much more sample-based. The stuff 2814 put out is more cross-genre ambient and less sampled but I guess Vaporwave is quite a broad term that encompasses more styles now than it used to. 
 

 

 
A lot of the early stuff was all based around chopping up 80's synth music, tv adverts, etc. This is when it got it's name but since then it's changed a lot and more stuff is accepted as 'Vaporwave'.
 
But yeah - keep digging man, there's some really amazing music out there.

not bumped this in a while - gonna do so with my boi George Clanton.
 
drawing on many different styles / genres but predominantly 80's synthwave /synth-pop - George is making new music that holds a heavy nostalgia for that time. big swirling synths and tape delays. vocals by himself. 
 
can't see it being for everyone but I love it. takes me somewhere else, like a lot of the stuff in this thread.
 
100% Electronica is Clanton's first LP - 10/10, imo. 

 
Here's George doing a live set of his music and mash-ups of some other stuff. You can tell the guy absolutely loves what he does. Lives, eats and breathes his music, doesn't sleep too much apparently.
 

 
Enjoy

The greatest vaporwave track and one of the best YT videos of our time.
