Vaporwave, A brief history by Wolfenstein OS X is something I just caught on YouTube and was very happy to see something like this be made.
Even if short, this great little documentary touches back to the roots of the genre with releases like Chuck Persons Eccojams, and Macintosh Plus Floral Shoppe, as well as delves into the concepts and possible meanings behind some of the work being made.
Wolfenstein OS X also address the concerns of some music being made under the blanket genre of Vaporwave seem to be lazily constructed while others do tend to touch on something quite interesting.
This is definitely worth watching and I’m currently trying to get him to come on the podcast to discuss it. If you know Wolfenstein OS X, please let him know he would be a welcome guest!
I Finally upgraded from the nanoPAD to an Akai MPD24. I really love this thing.
Geeky Gigs #9 is a bit of a hodgepodge mix up of styles, kinda trap, kinda vaporwave, kinda trip hop, and just kinda weird. I cut up son Janet Jackson, 808, casio rapman, my own real drum samples, some vinyl drum samples and some synth parts and bass lines using the UVI digital sensations and Plastique VST. Everything is live sequenced and triggered in Ableton Live Intro.
The end is a bit of improv. Hope you like it!
