Vaporwave Fashion


Vaporwave is difficult to describe in full: it is both an aesthetic and a cultural movement that is having a major moment in fashion. Closely related to seapunk, this aesthetic takes cues from cyberpunk and dystopian capitalism and often features Japanese writing, grid motifs, classical sculptures, and 80s and 90s technology.  Recently, certain brands have come to understand its popularity amongst young Internet users and have started to manufacture clothes and bags that emulate the Vaporwave style.

Digging this Vaporwave style? Here is a curated list of some of the best translations of Vaporwave from the Internet to clothing.

#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.

Welcome Beauty Sounds may by my favorite obscure bandcamp label. These weirdos down under sure put together some awesome mind bending stuff.

I think this one is probably my favorite release of theirs yet! Name your price download.

Vaporwave is dead….. or is it? Yes it is, but this is still worth watching


Is Vaporwave a real genre of music? A lot of people would say no. A lot of people would say it’s just crappy 90s music slowed down. A lot of it is actually, and and a lot of it does indeed suck horribly. Much of it is just horrible rehashes of the same things over and over again, obvious samples with nothing done to them but slowed down (I’m looking at you Mac Plus) This is one of the reasons I started tuning much of it out of my attention-o-sphere. However, when a video came up called “Vaporwave is dead” I couldn’t resist but to click it. Much to my surprise it was one of the ever so increasingly rare gems that the internet-sub-fake-sudo-genre can produce from time to time. I figured it was worth a share 🙂

Vaporwave may be dead, or was never alive, but this short video is still pretty cool.
