I recently put out a new album for my project Home&Office, and here's the first track from it if you feel like checking it out! I don't know exactly which vaporwave subgenre to stick this into, but it's all office-themed and tends to bounce between some funky/jazz-fusion sounding stuff and more atmospheric sounding stuff. If you like it, I have more stuff on my Bandcamp (link under my avatar). Anyways, let me know what you think!

if you wanted to show someone that vaporwave is more than slowing down old smooth jazz than this would honestly be the premier kosher choice for doing so because it gets by the nostalgia or hauntology (whatever word you gotta use) without (or atleast without sounding like) being ripped from other sources, and even if it was, it sounds like it's actually an artifact of the 80s & early 90s. I feel like most vaporwave is distortion of the past (Floral Shoppe, Haircuts for Men, The Computer Trilogy), this is just that

I think this sort of "cyberjazz" also has more of an appeal when it comes to "hauntology" than shit like future funk bc u can probably create a lot more feelings than "oh look it's anime girls and stuff, we're on the beach, don't you wish you were here" (impo atleast)

Glad you like it, thanks! You bring up some good points too. The mutation aspect of vaporwave is definitely valuable and there are many artists that do it well, but I found that straying from the standard "formats" allowed me to express a much wider range of feelings and tell a more personal story.
