VAPORWAVE – Pursuing The Trivial
Written by Rick on June 8, 2016
I am pretty late to the party with VAPORWAVE but I dug deep and explained it’s humble beginnings.
One thing thing that kept coming back up with this subgenre is the idea of parody versus authenticity. Some artists point to the genre as a look into a future dystopian megacorporation like sound, something to be wary of. While others have taken that idea and implemented other subgenres into their songs, such as Trap music.
I play Blank Banshee as well as a few others that have started the genre and even a local PDX dj makes an appearance.
Hope you enjoy!
