Here’s a playlist I put together of all the Vaporwave inspired tracks I’ve performed live on my YouTube Channel. The earlier entries in this playlist were originally in a different playlist, but then I started to notice a sound develop in the ones I was posting, hence the term “Vaporphonics”.
Soon I’ll be compiling these, as well as some other tracks into a subscriber only exclusive release on Anthill Recordings.
I think I’ve finally finished the geeky gigs series. I realized after making this last video that the past 5 videos before that were fitting together more so than the rest of the geeky gigs series. So I took those vids and this brand new one and put together a new playlist titled “Vaporphonics”. This is mostly my take on Vaporwave/Plunderphonics. I think Vaporwave is a genre that is still being developed, and that’s one of the reasons I’m having so much fun with these.
There’s still a lot of people out there that don’t take it seriously. I will admit to getting annoyed with the genre myself when I kept hear so many poor examples or it, or just ones that weren’t really serious in themselves and simply slowing down other tracks from the 90s.
That’s not what I’m doing in these tracks. Yes there’s a lot of pitched down samples, but I’m trying to use more original material for mine, as well as chopping the samples in unpredictable ways. Like using odd spaces in between beats and tails of hits rather than the hits themselves, which is how most beats are chopped. This song, as well as the rest of the tracks in the Vaporphonics playlist will be part of a new album I’m putting together.
#14 of Geeky Gigs and more Vaporphonics. Ableton Live Intro with MPD24 on a single drum rack. Cut up some samples, added fx, played quite a bit with the grain delay in Ableton for this one. Recorded with my old Panasonic VHS-c cam and then cropped to HD in Vegas. Like and subscribe if you are into it.
