Happy wonderful Monday everyone, the start of an awesome week of course. As always a new interview goes live Tuesday, this week with Vape Tapes, a vaporwave and Future Funk label. Actually our first label on the show.
… and then of course the weekly news on Friday. Until those release of course you can catch past episodes, all 38 of them now!
Vape Tapes interview – sneak peak
Can’t get into too much detail but the interview went great and will give everyone a great insight into how he runs his label and tips for starting your own DIY vaporwave/future funk label. Pretty cool.
The episode is already edited but the youtube video I’ve been working on all day and lets say the background animation I’m working on looks super cool. For whatever reason Vape Tapes literally has no… aesthetic to them. So I had to make my own. So here’s a photo of the current rendering. Obviously it’s animated but I don’t want to give it away yet.
PS it say 汽卡带 （vape cassettes)
PAUL HARDCASTLE – HARDCASTLE 2 (vinyl)
Paul Hardcastle, a jazz artist who has hit the Billboard #1 as teamed up with SIC Records which is crazy. Both in Cassette and Vinyl. The reason behind the high prices are most likely due to the high profile artist. This is an awesome opportunity for Sic Records, so lets support them. I reached out to get more info on how this happened.
I put “Vaporwave” in quotes in the title as they do release other experimental artists.
Ａｅｓｔｈｅｔｉｃ Ｔａｐｅｓ Ｖｏｌｕｍｅ 2 by ⁂V‡▲D‡M∇R⁂
First time hearing from this artist but since they are on Seikomart, I know it’s going to be a good release. After listening to the album it’s a strange mix of vaporwave, hi-fi and ambient. I liked Overzealous out of the few. Everything feels off beat which is interesting
Another release from Hong Kong label, Vaporreality. I’ve tried getting in contact with him about their label but they just are doing it for fun and don’t want any fame. Fair enough, but they release so many chinese artists and i live here and i went to meet them TT_TT
short album of only 4 songs and a weird description for sure “💧︎⍓︎⬧︎⧫︎♏︎❍︎⬧︎ ⧫︎♒︎♋︎⧫︎ ♋︎❒︎♏︎ ■︎□︎⧫︎ ♋︎❖︎♋︎♓︎●︎♋︎♌︎●︎♏︎ ♐︎□︎❒︎….”. Loud, and in your face. The artist interests me for the cryptic name and descriptions but pass on the music this time.
Sailor Team is together once again and we’ve been graced with another set of photos of the team.
I wonder if they are working on some big collaboration or something together. I’m just glad these guys are still hanging out together.
