My boyfriend introduced me to the genre a few months back, I believe he said that the first known "vaporwave song" was from 2009. However, he feels like there's some of the genre that's been hidden since late 90's (even if it probably wasn't labeled) I'm very clueless still but I wonder if that could be possible.

Prestige Pavillion says:

beutiful documentary dude you should do this more often

William Sharifie says:

Vaporwave spoiler alert!

Jake Stockton says:

I wouldn't say that Vaporwave embraces capitalism so much as it mocks 80s sheep-born tendencies developed from it.

Axl L. says:

I've never even heard of "vaporwave" what's it supposed to be?

Lemongrab says:

it's not an accomplishment that it began online, so did a whole bunch of other shitty forced memes

uwotm8 says:

I love vaporwave but it makes me feel lonely. I don't know why it scares me…it makes me feel like I'm in an empty room or something I don't know how to explain

QuickShepard says:

William Blancas says:

grabbing music created from our past, slowing it down to create a different tune. a return to created art and making new from it. a rebirth. the second Renaissance? nah

l-u-z Salas says:

At 13:51 you show a pic of GRiZ (in FUTURE FUNK chapter). He's one of my fav artists and I am aware that he makes future funk music but I know for sure that he isn't associated with V A P O R W A V E in any way. Sure, his music has funk and soul feel to it and he puts his stuff on soundcloud under "futurefunk" tag but it is noticeably different from vaporwave. Also he is a DJ/musician who plays live on sax which no other vaporwave producer does, as far as I know. Also his music doesn't have nostalgic feel to it (his music is chillout, funky, electronic and especially pleasing when you're stoned), whereas vaporwave induces it (at least in my case). I love both GRiZ and vaporwave but it never crossed my mind that those two are connected in any way and still I feel that way.

Oh Ok says:

I have a genuine question:
What is music?
