this year in vaporwave

premium tracks selected by a fan of all things groovy. with vaporwave it's important to take the music for what it usually is: taking something another person has made and slightly altering it to create magic. 

celebrate the music rather than the "musician."

Paul Jebanasam - Rites [2013]

one of the best releases of the year for me. a mixture of so many styles that I will need to stop typing before I make a fool of myself.

let's just say it's grim. it's noisy. it's good.

Paa Annandalii - Transhumance [2013]

Another project from Robert Thompson (Mohave Triangles, Quartz Safari, REALMS). This guy blows me away with everything he does. Some other-worldly quality. Some of the absolute best music of it's type I've ever heard. Keep a look out for this cassette on his up and coming label, which I expect huge things from.

Quartz Safari - Quartz Safari [2013]

Two good buddies. Incredible warm drones that are more complex than they may first appear. 

"Quartz Safari is an experimental ambient collaboration between Robert Thompson (USA) and Sepehr Lemar Nabi (Norway). The duo released their explorative debut tape release “Pineal Origins” (Rotifer Cassettes) in 2011, before their self-titled album was released on the Fadeaway Tapes label in 2013.
