Pretty much all in the title; what track got you into vaporwave?

I think around 2013 or so someone sent me a random Bandcamp link that was some kind of king of the hill related vaporwave. I was confused and I don't remember what it sounded like.

Shortly after that I somehow stumbled into the Dream Catalogue Bandcamp and downloaded some big compilation. Again, don't remember anything about that.

Then one day about a year later I was letting YouTube go wild on some 70/80s Japanese tv theme songs (Sukeban Deka in particular) and suddenly the next thing it plays is a 猫 シ Corp track and I was hooked immediately. It wasn't until then that I really recognized that vaporwave was a thing that was happening.

Edit: it was this -> [youtube]https://youtu.be/o9WcWOdnrZ8[/youtube]

Around 2015 I first hear LISA FRANK 420 MODERN COMPUTING and was intrigued but... didn't quite get it. I searched youtube for more vaporwave and found myself listening to slowed down versions of Africa and such, which I enjoyed as a novelty but wasn't attached to. Then 猫 シ Corp. and Eco Virtual started showing up in my recommendations. Atmosphere's 1 was my first download, and from there I just got sucked into the rabbit hole.

Found some website called Bandcamp in 2013 and did some lurking. Found fortune 500 and download Empire Building, not thinking much of it. Boy, was I wrong.

Very similar story to yours. Back in 2015, I was obsessed with Death Grips and I was listening to random mash-ups on YouTube. Naturally the Lisa Frank 420/Lord of the Game video came up and I was intrigued by the album art, so I immediately flipped to the Floral Shoppe link in my recommended. I heard Tar Baby and I was hooked. The rest is history.

First ever vaporwave I ever listened to was Macintosh Plus 420. What really got me into vaporwave was Blank Banshee. Everything after that is a blur.

I remember listening to Macintosh plus - リサフランク420 / 現代のコンピュー in the beginning but what truly fot me hooked would probably be 2814 - Birth of A New Day which is still one of my favourite ambient albums.
It really inspired me to make my own ambient stuff. :D
