さようなら親愛なるカタログ。夢のカタログ社員に一度出会ったことを思い出します。彼はそれが良い会場であり、給料が素晴らしかったと私に言った-そして起動するために、彼は私にカタログの最高のカセットをくれた。夢のカタログは、蒸気波の伝播と分布の主要な要因であり、ネオンの色と明るい光で、私が言えるのは、夢と悪夢のカタログの万歳です。

Did the label just not have as much success? HKE has referred to it as a business with full-time staff after all, and there's still quite a lot of unsold merch on their Bandcamp page.

For me they were already out of it for a long time. They often actively distanced themselves from vaporwave and deleted many gems from their bandcamp. They had some amazing stuff around 2014-2016 before HKE decided they weren't a vaporwave label.

Funny coincidence: a couple of days ago someone on soulseek downloaded the parody album "DREAM CATALOGUE IS A VAPORWAVE LABEL AND HKE IS A BITCH" from my shared folder. It is absolutely unlistenable noise but it gets it point across I suppose :p

The thing that bugs me is that Shima33 wanted to keep the label going even without HKE as a hands-on. But apparently, either HKE and/or Shima33 was able to apprehend the non-musical hassles of running a label (very real! very irritating!), and the decision to go full-stop happened. It happens. At least DC is going to have something of an "orderly stop", as things could've been MUCH worse for the artists and their work if it had just crashed and burned outright; the bankruptcy of the long-gone European techno distributor EFA, for example, blew a hole in that scene that you could've driven a truck thru.

    I saw a video of the japanese perspective of his time there leading up to that forest incident everyone has heard about but turns out he made a whole bunch of videos just messing with random people and the whole time I was thinking "if he pulled that shit here someone would put him in the hospital". Screwing with vehicles for example like when he was jumping on them and in front of them there we take that extremely seriously its like messing with someones livelihood.
