Re: Talkin bout vaporwave

I guess there's a hipster genre name for this sound now eh? Sad.
Anyways,



I suppose my track VOPM Cruise would also be considered Vaporwave. *shrug*

Still like the term No-Fi :3 (emboldened as it wasn't seen before)

Yes, that's the point.

Genre tags are only essential to the consumerist. Why not just make music and say fuck it to whoever tries to pick it apart and label it? Also, the more people get obsessed with attempting to enforce a genre standard, the more dried out that standard becomes, because people begin to say things like "Well that CAN'T be Vaporwave, because: etc." and then people try to make up new ridiculous genres based on THAT, "oh no, it's POST-vaporwave, or it's EXPERIMENTAL VAPORWAVE" fuck that!

PROGRESSIVE VAPORWAVE, VAPORSTEP, VAPORFUNK, etc.
