Meaning: those releases and artists that are barely discussed, the ones who remain unknown or forgotten. Because not everything is composed of Vektroid alts.

Mine is Ladatel - Recuerdo Futuro, which has a whooping 9 years already since its release. I still come back to it often. It's pretty amusing to hear mexican themed vaporwave like this.

Can any of you guys recommended some obscure as fuck vaporwave artists?
If you want to discover rare vaporwave tracks, I advise you to directly visit the Bandcamp pages of the labels. Personally, I like what is posted on DMT Tapes FL : https://dmttapes.bandcamp.com/ and Audio boutique : https://audio-boutique.bandcamp.com/

Here an exemple of good album I have discovered this way :


And, obviously, you can also go on Vapor memory YouTube channel which contains a lot of hidden gems.

I'm guessing most of y'all already know this website, since compared to many here, I'm kind of a noob regarding vaporwave music. But for the few in my situation take a look at this : https://loa2k.neocities.org/ they got a fuckton of albums that I haven't seen in other places, and it's all free.

The album that first introduced me to vaporwave. There are a few tracks on this album that don't fit well (tracks 6 and 7 would be cut if it were up to me), but the rest makes this one of the better recent examples of Classic Vaporwave.

It's a shame that the tapes sold by the デジタルSounds label were never delivered, as I was one of the first buyers of the pressing at launch. In retrospect though it taught me right from the beginning that most Vaporwave labels will take your money and run. Since then I've done enough research into all my physical purchases that I haven't had this issue again.
