Collecting Zer0 れい and other releases
Zer0 れい physical releases
Zer0 れい posted earlier that his new cassette went live with Palm ’84 and. after checking out more of his music, I wanted to promote all his releases. He has cassettes, vinyl, VHS.. CDs pretty awesome. Zer0 is probably one of the best artists to introduce yourself to if you’ve never really listen to ambient type music. it’s approachable, hits on the aesthetic of vaporwave and is on some of the best labels in the scene. So here’s a list of stuff you can check out.
Latest Release on Palm ’84
ブラックマジック (Black Magic) by Zer0 れい (Limited Edition Cassette)
Black Magic has been around for a bit and totally deserves to be on cassette. Slushy / ambient at it’s finest and actually my favorite album art of his releases. We talked about this album in our interview if you want to learn more.

If cassettes does not do it for you, you can always pick it up on vinyl with BRC30 Productions
MIDIHACK by Zer0 れい
If you’re a collector of obscure vapor items, this release has a beautiful CD and a VHS. The CD comes with a 4 page colored booklet, stickers and other random stuff. But the coolest release is obviously the VHS tape. The tape is only in PAL but contains the album with visuals. Not exactly sure whats on it but they look too cool. And finally an Enamel Pin, which. I actually own. I’ll show more about that in a future video.

Finally my favorite album and the one Zer0 れい cassette I actually own. I won this one in a drawing some how and I feel so fortunate about it because the best ambient album I’ve ever listened to. Even before the drawing I invested a lot of time listening to it.
So now you know what’s out there by Zer0 れい. If you’re a fan of ambient slushwave vaporwave you’re going to want to have this in your collection. Plus it’s cool to see someone creating such music with the ability to publish it on various physical mediums. If you have any of these send me a link on twitter, I’d love to see your collection.
A new signalwave artist to check out. I really like tracks like UV because it gives me this thought that I too can make music. Like looking at art and you say “I can make that” but you never do and the artist did. So you kind of have to appreciate it.
Some times listening to vaporwave I get into this headspace of everything sounds the same or boring. But when I find an album like this, that instantly sounds different, drums are different, the beat is different, it makes my eyes widen. I say, yes finally. and I just sit there and enjoy a new musical adventure. This is great, the percussion on it is super welcoming, perfect fix before bed. What an album. I know ACT 1 is long, well the whole album is long, but damn am I feeling it. Perfect moment kind of thing that makes you attached to something maybe you might not otherwise.
ehhh catch me at the high rise suites on mars when earth comes crashing in. Pretty chill vibes on this album.
Yes! That ear rotation in v o y e u r, I love that. Good back and forth, the reverb on the main piano line and the introduction to the drums was sick. Probably the best track on the album.
New single out by NATIONAL ナショナル. Your in for a great jumpy vibe and the baseline is sick. I wonder where he got that synth from. The vocals on the track are really well placed and sound good but not enough to get stuck in your head.
