I browsed /mu/ regularly when it started being posted on there, maybe 2012? Just after Floral Shoppe had been dropped and everyone was losing their mind.
Even remember people grouping it next to chillwave, seapunk and witch house as the next short-lived microgenre, with people coming up with the still-going oceangrunge and the long dead desertwave genres as replacements.

I long string of musical rabbit holes landed me on the famous Mac Plus video. I was always into dark ambient music and would frequently find myself listening to it while reading or working on some personal project. I fell in love with the cyberpunk aesthetic which led me to listening to a lot of synthwave. I saw the album art for Mac Plus and it gave me a certain unexplainable feeling. The accompanying music deepened that feeling and I was hooked. I've spent years trying to find more vaporwave that would trigger that specific feeling.
