Today I’m introduced to Detroit house, sweet percussions I aspire to create and a beautiful vapor album about Satellite Frequencies. I’m very new to some of the house genres, so if I got something wrong here, let me know on twitter or instagram.
Otherworlds EP by softcoresoft (12″ Vinyl – LTBLK012)
Oh, a type of house I haven’t really heard to often. Where the synth is the leading drive of the song. As the tags show, Detroit house. It feels more like old school techno but again both genres I’m not too familiar with. 12″ vinyl now available.

This isn’t common knowledge yet but after this post it will be. I’m working on an album. I know what your thinking, another vaporwave artist. ehh whatever, I want to be part of the scene in a musical way too. I’m not turning into a clone of Pad Chennington. I promise. Regardless, the drums on this is exactly what I’ve been trying to accomplish. I’m a pretty decent beat boxer, I can beat box to this easily. turning a beat into a Ableton midi thing is another story. I just love hearing drums like this because it’s like showing me it’s possible for me to do what I hear in my head.
Anyways, here’s an awesome house mix on vinyl.
This is such a peaceful album. The concept of theming a vaporwave album around satellites is very clever. Video Interface even takes the time to expand on the theme with the track titles including what looks like the analog signal requirements for tuning in. I kind of wish there was an explanation of what the tuning means. I guess some vapor artists like to give that kind of mystery to allow people to discover themselves. The album is very similar to the weather soft sound in some instances but the theme is strong in this which makes it stand out on it’s own.
An extremely strong static + minimal synth bites album. I listened to the full 17 minute first track as I read how MangaRock was closing down and starting MR COMIC as a legit business. Strange days in the manga world but great music to describe it.
Wow the bouncing bass on that first track, HotelBallroomNeverDancedIn, is sick. It’s really complicated and glitchy for a second and then let’s a mallsoft like melody drive the rest of the song. Yeah the percussion on this album is really technical in some points. Really enjoying that.
Typical vaporwave sound. Nothing to groundbreaking but a solid release. I liked the song 深夜.
