Well, it's one of the most hated genres on the internet, but what's your opinion on it?

my only real opinion on vaporwave is that I don't understand why it's so "hated."

 

it's not meant to be commercial so what is there to hate?

it's just kids from the 80's who grew up, became stoners, and started mashing up their nostalgic memories into down-tempo synth pop.

Exactly, it's not widely known but it is widely hated. Personally, I love it but only one person that I know likes it and I know a lot of people.

I've made vaporwave before, I find it to be pretty fun to make. Besides Vektroid's projects, Eccojams, and Far Side Virtual my favorite vaporwave albums are Mediafired's The Pathway Through Whatever, Atmospheres by Eco Virtual, and the one with the Speed Racer album cover.

I don't get everyone's fascination with making everything sound like it's on a cassette tape, unless I'm missing the point.

I haven't had much experience with vaporwave, but a buddy of mine showed me a video describing one kid's love for it and I was in tears laughing.

Hi MacAshford, I see you claim to lurk /x/. Were you by any chance in a stream a few of us did 'bout a year ago where we watched a russian family on their couch-bed and listened to vaporwave all night? That's been my only experience with the genre, and I liked it just fine then. It made nice background music. I couldn't imagine seeking it out to listen, but to each their own. :)

 

 

That said, the art and video production for vaporware music videos is always really neat. I wish I knew how to throw that sort of stuff together. It looks like lots of 'em use Adobe After Effects, and there's no way I'm gonna download Adobe software. :(

 

e: Haha! It grew on me. I've been listening to it for about two days now. Thanks OP. :p

I wasn't there for the stream, though it sounds like fun :p

 

I can message you some vaporwave recommendations if you like :)
