What songs/albums/artists would you recommend them as a starting point? Or another way of putting it: what is the least weird most accessible Vaporwave you can think of?

Most future funk is pretty easily digestible. I'd recommend Hit Vibes, Miami Virtual 2.0, and GALLERY by .nebula. We can go weirder from there.

If they're more open-minded, we could start with Eco Virtual, selected Cat Sys Corp. albums, or maybe some Luxury Elite.

i'd start with hit vibes or a million miles away. then its straight into weird shit, liberated from the world and signalwave that samples porn exclusively.

I tend to recommend 3D BLAST's "Iconic Bitch", Dan Mason's "Miami Virtual 2.0" and 猫 シ Corp's "Palm Mall".

The easiest way in my opinion is to just dive head first into the music and get used to the weird shit.

Honestly I agree with you on that. There's some good stuff somebody might miss out on because they think it's a bit too weird.

Playlists are a big thing that helped me get into vaporwave personally, listened to Floral Shoppe then just a ton of playlists and Nightwave Plaza radio for a while.
for me it was Nightwave Plaza too

This is the best introductory Vaporwave mix:

Everybody can enjoy it and it makes most people understand what Vaporwave is all about at the first try. It has a pretty nice selection of great tracks and the aesthetics are on point. What else would you need?

Really wish Dream was still putting out stuff like these:






These too, though they're more future funk, with the exception of chris†††:
