Introduce yourself

My name is Derek Power and I make music as キラヨシ.

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?
Not sure as 1) I haven't cared for sitcoms since I was a kid and 2) I don't think my life fits into one.

Too Many Cooks, maybe? =]

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
It's an art movement/scene where you make things built on mood. It's made with a DIY and a DGAF attitude.

What subgenres are you most into?
I like pretty much anything under the vapour umbrella.

How did you find out about this place?
I believe it was through the Private Suite Magazine directly. Otherwise, it might have been some Twitter or Reddit or Facebook thing.

What do you do for fun?
When I'm not doing the day job thing, I do try to work on my music. But right now, my free time is most occupied by either working on an MBA (Smart.ly) or preparing for forthcoming apprenticeship at a recording studio in Boston (Plaid Dog Recording). Otherwise, I am also into films and trying to satiate my intellectual curiosity.

Hi I'm Andy and I think this website is really cool. I have a project called Home&Office that I would love for you all to check out!

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?
Spin City, News Radio, The Mary Tyler Moore Show - all the top tier office sitcoms

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
To me it's a tangible manifestation of nostalgia, whether intentional or not. Though it's rooted in media and styles of the past, it's transformed into something brand new and unique to this time. It's weird, wonderful, stupid and intelligent all at once.

What subgenres are you most into?
Anything ambient (a la Palm Mall) and anything super synthetic yet organic-sounding like PrismCorp. As long as it's got some good vibes and comes from the heart, it really hits me.

How did you find out about this place?

Found it on an Agora Road YouTube video of an album I made. (One year later)

What do you do for fun?
Make music, drink coffee, listen to video game music, take walks, play video games, build Gundam models, record other people's music

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?
George Costanza in Seinfeld (the seasons where he's unemployed).

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
Vaporwave is love, Vaporwave is life.

What subgenres are you most into?
Definitely classic-style and vaporfunk, though I am warming to signalwave (if it's not too screachy) and mallsoft can be nice, but is not something I actively listen to.

How did you find out about this place?
I think, I found it on Twitter?

What do you do for fun?
Watch YouTube, browse Twitter and make Vaporwave.

...does Big Lez count?

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
It's a glimpse back at many of the things I was vaguely aware of as a young child, that when filtered through this artistic from, doesn't have the same corporate cheese that the raw source material does.

What subgenres are you most into?
Probably naturewave, I love Eco Virtual, but don't have any particularly strong ties to a single genre.

How did you find out about this place?
Private Suite Magazine - I honestly wasn't sure if this was a real place or if the ad there was just a visual art piece. I was very happy when I googled it and stumbled upon this forum.

What do you do for fun?
Study the nervous system :D . Read sci-fi, fantasy, and non-fiction. Listen to, and occasionally play music.

Hi. My name is Molly, and I like to program useless crap.

I dont really have a favorite CANCELLED sitcom, but I really do like to watch old episodes of the simpsons sometimes. Some day, it is going to be a cancelled sitcom, we will see.

Vaporwave means alot to me. It makes me kind of relaxed when stressed and I feel comfort.

Vaporwave is a cool genre that I like, but I also like smooth jazz sometimes, or even future funk to practise dance moves.

I found it on reddit somewhere, thought I might give it a try.

Becker

What does Vaporwave mean to you?

It's pretty multilayered to me, it would take a novel to explain. But the core reasons for my interest in the genre are that it sounds like nothing else out there - most of the rest of the world of music seems so artificial by comparison (ironic?) - and also I really dig the neoliberal capitalist critique. Oh, and the unironic nostalgia for video games and '90s stuff is cool too.

What subgenres are you most into?

Oh, mallsoft without a second thought. I also have a bit of a soft spot for naturewave.

How did you find out about this place?

Honestly, I forgot. Probably through the VW subreddit.

What do you do for fun?

Well, I like writing. But mostly I just dick around on the internet and watch Game Grumps and shit.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?

• before VW I produced trance and other dance genres, however one night a few years back on a mescaline trip that all changed, VW opened my mind to so many musical possibilities that would never have crossed my mind in the scene I was in. It means everything to me, without out it I don't know where I'd currently be.

What subgenres are you most into?

• future funk, vaportrap, mall soft and ambient

Hi everyone! First off, I'd really like to praise the choice in simplemachines. By far the best freeware forum software in my opinion. I'm happy I found this forum while it's alive. Usually communities like this are a thing of the past, so when I saw there's activity here I immediately signed up!

I'm in my early 20s and my childhood mostly consisted of Pokémon, drawing, and adventuring outdoors. I appreciate vaporwave because it allows me to experience a time and place that I was born a little too late to experience. My favorite vaporwave "producer" (because it's mainly sampled based, with his own flavors added) is Contact Lens. I have his entire discography on my computer and phone, which I'll happily share when I get home!

Currently finishing up my last year in college but Ive been producing electronic music using FL for a number of years. I love all genres of music, my favorites being trance, prog house, ambient probably. But my tastes are everywhere.

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?
That's a tough one. Seinfeld I guess, just like that show, my life is about nothing xD

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
Honestly the more I learn and listen to it, I really feel like it's my generation's music. As a person growing up on the internet and moving so fast culturally I feel like vaporwave is the only true personification of this hypermeta, hyperindividualistic state we've found ourselves in.

What subgenres are you most into?
I really dig mallsoft, vaportrap, classic vaporwave and whatever it is you would call what b e g o t t e n 自杀 and G A M E S H A R KTM do.

How did you find out about this place?
Admin posted a link to the November Producer's thread in the FB Group: Vaporwave Break Room.

What do you do for fun?
Bowling, Movies, TV Shows, Board Games, DnD, and Dad Rock!
 
Hi everyone! I'm Paola and I got to know about VW only 4-5 years ago.
Music has always been a fundamental part of my life - I can't fathom a world without it. I've drifted through many genres through the years, I'm not ashamed to admit I've been a punk-rock/post-punk poser during my teenage years XD This forum is a pleasant surprise, given that many facebook pages/groups about vaporwave don't give me that nostalgia feel. This is a very nice place, reminds me of the online communities before proper social networks were a thing :)

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?
I didn't watch any sitcom when growing up, maybe just some Fresh Prince when I was at my friends house.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
It's my current favourite music genre, I also like the visuals and the overall "distorted nostalgia" feel.

What subgenres are you most into?
vaportrap, hypnagogic drift, eccojams.

How did you find out about this place?
I don't remember exactly, several months ago probably, I was surfing the net looking for a nice vaporwave forum and here I am!

What do you do for fun?
I create illustrations and play videogames/watch old movies.

hi, i'm eir and i've been sort-of making vaporwave since 2016, as well as messing around in various other electronic genres, including drone, downtempo, and noise, to name a couple. ;D i also run three labels: http://circular-archive.bandcamp.com (mostly a personal label, but i do accept submissions), http://nobodyhome.bandcamp.com (an open-source label that's part of the 7form-verse), and http://anathema-collective.bandcamp.com (what i affectionately call "a generic vprwv label").
my personal favorite vaporwave subgenres are nuwrld, fishwave (when that was a thing; i'm not even sure if that's what it was called), broken transmission, and the more ambient vaporwave stuff.

my personal favorite vaporwave artists are vektroid, vektroid, vektroid, vektroid, and vektroid. :p

i first got into vaporwave b/c one of my brothers showed me the one track everyone knows about and whose name i will not utter, as well as cherry pepsi by saint pepsi (i fell in love with the former).

i first found out about this place when the official twitter (i think it's the official twitter, anyways) followed me for whatever reason.

this place seems pretty neat, yes ;D

I LOVE 家族. 劳动. 쇼핑.! That was one of the first mallsoft albums I ever listened to, or at least when I realized that that sound was mallsoft anyway. I was bummed I missed out on the VHS release.

The genre that is 猫 シ Corp.'s - 家族. 劳动. 쇼핑.
