  • Hellooo

    Hi. I'm Ben. Nice to be here.

    I'm a composer, mostly for video games, but have been producing ambient, downtempo, chiptune and vaporwave for several years. Currently working on a new EP for a new project more chiptune-lead that I hope to put out in September. I also run a little netlabel that releases a way variety of genres (ambient, electronica, breakcore, rock, acoustic) with the aim to help give independent artists a little bit of a push with their work, but I am also in the midst of setting up a second label more specifically geared towards dreamy, oceanic and dense ambient, lo-fi minimal, vaporwave and drone. I'm really, really excited about this as I hope to incorporate physical releases too, namely cassettes.

    Anyway, thanks a lot for having me, I have so much amazing music to share with you guys. :D
    Lots of love,
    Ben

    Hi Ben, I'm new here myself, so hi

    I had to google "chiptune" and "vaporwave" I'm afraid... I'm a bit wiser now.

    I look forward to sampling some of your music.

    cheers

          Thanks for the warm welcome, guys. Yeah, vaporwave is a curious one. A relatively new 'genre' (though more of a movement and internet culture), and a very ambiguous one. Some things that can be classed as funk and jazz and soul can also be classed as vaporwave, and the same can be said for ambient and downtempo, but it all tends to hold a common ground and attitude behind it, that in itself is tricky to decipher fully, but it's quite wonderful. :D

          I recommend this album for a good introduction of some of the more ambient vaporwave:


          And chiptune is just immensely fun. ^_^

          I'm really enjoying both of your music! Have been leaving comments on both of your Soundcloud pages and will be digging deeper into your works a little later tonight.

                    Yeah, had to Google vaporwave too... Witch House? Seapunk? "the idea of libidinal energy being subjected to relentless sublimation under capitalism."???

                    I sense a Chris Morris windup... :D

                    Seriously, this is an interesting phenomenon, think I've experienced a lot of this stuff without realising it had a label. I'm thinking of that guy who makes those amazing videos gleaned from glitchy old 80s VHS tapes, can't think of his name...

                    Whatever, nice to have you here.

                      There is certainly an air of facetiousness to it all.

                      I think I know who you mean, rings a bell, but that does seem applicable :p

                      Anyway, thanks!
