    Indeed, though often classed as 'proto-vaporwave' as it paved the way for the movement.

    Oh man, now this is very cool. Thanks for linking! Reminds me a bit of Oneohtrix Point Never.

    Outstanding album! Glad you like it.

    Something I should have included on the OP, this is a good short documentary about vaporwave, if you were interested.

    Been listening to that 2 8 1 4 album today on your recommendation. Nice stuff, although I had to look up the term 'Vaporwave' on Google

    I'd never heard of Illuminated Paths before, thanks for mentioning! I'll dig into their catalogue.

    Another two good labels would be Beer On The Rug and Ailanthus Recordings. This one came out on Beer On The Rug the other day and I'm obsessed with it:

    Actually when the 2 8 1 4 album dropped, that you posted, i DL it and its easily been my favorite album of the year. Dream catalouge is easily also one of my new favorite labels. Illuminated paths is really good too.

    Dream Catalogue / Vaporwave

    One of my favourite record labels recently, Dream Catalogue, specialises in a relatively recent genre and movement/internet subculture called vaporwave. It's quite an ambiguous genre at that, and can include music that could quite easily be called ambient, or downtempo, or jazz, or soul, or funk. To those unfamiliar, it's a very broad term, but it all seems to have a common attitude and feel driving it, which often remains quite difficult to fully realise too, and in fact that is something of an inside joke within the scene; nobody quite knows what it is and what it's supposed to mean and represent. But there is always something there that is recognisable and appealing in the music this scene produces.

    But at any rate, Dream Catalogue is a stunning label that has a lot of ambient on it, and honestly I cannot recommend them enough!

    Their Bandcamp is definitely worth perusing:
    https://dreamcatalogue.bandcamp.com/

    But for specific recommendations, these albums and artists are a must:

    t e l e p a t h テレパシー能力者 - アンタラ通信
    https://dreamcatalogue.bandcamp.com/album/--19




    Hong Kong Express - HK
    https://dreamcatalogue.bandcamp.com/album/hk




    and the two together:

    2814 - 新しい日の誕生
    https://dreamcatalogue.bandcamp.com/...?v=vrRNj4tP4Sc


    These two also run the label, so what better representatives of their sound?

    Hope you enjoy!
Working...
