for being your first attempt at it you really get the plunderphonics kind of sound spot on, very good stuff and reminiscing of the very early vapor works!!

really liked the 808 as well as the over-the-top signalwave/broken transmission style :)

my humble contribution is my very first full feature vaporwave album, it did take a while to complete but nonetheless I hope you enjoy it as much as I did whilst making it :D :D

New album of retrofuturistic vaporwave with dashes of lofi house and future funk. Samples various defunct Disneyland attractions. Hazy and groovy. Let me know what you think!

Really cool stuff here! The sampled material is fairly diverse but the phasing/imaging and distorted 808s really tie everything together. Great car sub test album!

I really like this! Was there a particular vision you had in mind when creating this album? Really takes you on a journey, I'm hearing everything from VGM to synthwave/city pop and hypnagogia.

Hey everyone,

I recently finished up my first full vaporwave album, Músicasら愛さ عن بعد. I would love it if you all checked it out and gave me some feedback on it!

https://netdenizenlain.bandcamp.com/album/m-sicas

Now for some comments and feedback of my own. Bear with me since I wrote out an entire review of each album posted (that took me over an hour to write) and it got lost to an auto logout.

https://shiftycomfort.bandcamp.com/album/amplituide-frequency-modulation

This is a very interesting album. I like the usage of the gabber style kick, as well as the radio static and channel changing sounds. It is a very interesting exploration of broken signal. My only issue is that the drums often sound the same in between tracks. Altogether a very interesting album that explores some new space in broken signal!

https://xells.bandcamp.com/album/daytona-dreams-ep

This is a very strong classic vapor album. It is mellow with great vibes and great sample selection. Though, at some points, it sounds like you were fighting your effect or DAW. In some songs it sounds like your DAW was struggling with the down downpitching and sample stretching. In other places the effects made the song sound (momentarily) tinny. Regardless of all of this, my favorite track has to be INFOMERCIALS. This is, overall, a very strong and well produced EP that I will have to visit again sometime!

https://binarydeconstructed.bandcamp.com/album/cognitive-aberrations

This album makes you feel like you are being taken over by a warm ocean. The tracks crash over you like gentle waves in a sea of warm melodies. Though, at times, the album's sampling seems a bit repetitive or drawn out, it keeps you engrossed in the vibe. One of my critiques is that some tracks take to long to open up, leaving 15 to 30 seconds of ramping up into the song. Though ambient music is not my cup of tea, I am particularly fond of Wisps. Altogether this is a good ambient album that washes you over with vibes, but needs some work on the start of the songs!

https://r3bellion.bandcamp.com/album/r3bellion44
I'll have to apologize in advance, because there were too many songs here for me to digest in one sitting. Individually the tracks are very strong, but together as a whole the flow of the album feels discordant. From the songs that I sampled from, the theme seems to drastically change from one song to the next. While they all are relatively strong songs by themselves, there is no flow to the album. Overall, this is a good collection of songs, but I like to see more of a thematic flow in albums!

https://swims1990.bandcamp.com/album/l-a-super

Another strong classic vapor album. I find your choice and usage of samples to be very good, though I would have loved to see more tracks like interlaced in between to act as transitions between songs. In my first pass in writing my review I think I had more to say, but now all I can say is that it is a solid album!

https://moonlight6.bandcamp.com/album/does-not-exist

This album is a wonderful exploration and experimentation in the bounds of the vaporwave genre. In the first track I was often finding myself waiting for a acid bass line to kick in and for it to transition to an acid house track. I personally loved the dark grittiness of Pastel Clouds. My only issue with this EP is that it feels, thematically, like two separate EPs interlaced into one. Overall, this EP explores the bounds of vaporwave in a wonderful way, though I wish it were separated into two EPs where the themes were explored more!

https://mysistersfugazishirt.bandcamp.com/album/tomorrowlands-today

This album fills me with the feeling of wonder and a hunger for exploration while serving a sense of cautious curiosity through the overlaying melodies. It is a wonderful exploration of retrofuterism, with my favorite track being People Mover. That being said, the first half of the album feels stronger than the latter in my opinion. Altogether it is a solid album with some vary unique and grasping tracks!

https://jankyswans.bandcamp.com/album/antennae

This EP sounds like it is the soundtrack to dungeon crawling, side scrolling retro video game. Each track has me imagining the different areas and zones in this fictitious video game. It brings me back to my childhood where I would whittle away the time playing games on my GBA. That being said, the album has a lot of thematic jumping from track to track, and it leaves me wanting more. Overall, this EP is amazing piece of nostalgia fuel that leaves me wanting more between each track!

Bless you, you get it! And I agree with your constructive criticism 100%. Antennae is the second of three EPs I'm releasing the Summer. Each one taught me a lot about what I wanted to do as an artist, and they helped me refine my sound. Now that I'm feeling confident about the direction I want to take, I'm working on a full-length album for the Fall. It's about halfway done, and already it feels more consistent, more comprehensive. Stay tuned - there's great stuff on the horizon! Also, please shoot me an e-mail at jankyswans@gmail.com - I'd like to send you some goodies!
