Anthill Recordings has released 豪華漆 418, by deluxepaint 418, a vaporwave LP made entirely with Amiga Protracker. The classic 4 channel horizontal scrolling music tracker was one of the first of it’s kind, and can still be found online to run on Amiga emulators, or in MorphOS.
Samples played through the 8 bit, 32,000 hz Amiga give it an instant grittiness, which is one of the the things that makes 豪華漆 418 such an interesting sounding recording. It’s only $3 to download it in flac, mp3, or aac! So it’s totally worth the money!
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.
I love when sampling is done creatively. This is exactly what is going on here on this new single by Shade, and done so well with synchronized video by the good people at Welcome Beauty Sounds. This is very promising and can wait to hear the full album!
