Re: What do you think of vaporwave enthusiasts that never experienced the 80s/90s? People keep mentioning constantly how the Millenial generation spans from 1980-2000 when in reality it's true span was from 1975-1994. The reason why is because when we are born we are not immediately part of the collective that participates in the experience of the zeitgeist, infant amnesia leaves a person without proper participation and representation until the age of 5, with that in mind, someone born in 1995 will begin their proper participation in the year 2000 and thus never truly experience what the 90s were like to begin with [same for anyone born in 1975 not experiencing the 70s for the aforementioned reason].

To this stands the case that although Vaporwave was created by the Millenial generation to express their nostalgia this is in fact not limited only to this group of individuals, the Millenial Generation is not the last generation before the rise of the Monoculture we all experience around the world today, the Centennial generation is. This means we still have a group that has the potential to bring the content they are truly nostalgic about instead of what the genre's time period was based on.
I am not a Millenial, by the time I was conscious of what I liked plastic clothing and straight hair was all the rage, not high waisted pants and hairspray. Due to this the content I create reflects how I feel about my past and what I find nostalgic because even though the music from the previous century has a feel that nobody can reproduce anymore due to the lack of soul in the industry, it was not what I experienced to my day to day basis.

I leave by stating the following: Vaporwave will not die if the medium is not stubborn to evolve towards the needs of everyones nostalgia and amazing content can await all of us if we don't become purists for the sake of staying close to the classics. I hope you have a nice day <3 ;)

Re: What are your favourite sample sources? During the period of time I used the moniker of Pi_ROL I had a tendency of using old advertisements and whenever possible tried to recreate the vibe of a Telereceptor going off in the background. I planned to continue using this medium more but due to poor archiving and lack of available material I had to abandon the style in favour of using video game music samples. Everything I have made since the summer of 2017 has had some relevance of video-game tie-in, most of the samples are from games between 1995-2002 because of how poppy and pumped the music is as it borrows from the best the time had to offer [as well as the nostalgia I identify the most because arcades were ((and still are)) my shit].

V2k Hey, uhm, I don't know about any of you but I have been having trouble
fitting most of my Vaporwave into the established sub genres.
I sample music after 1995 and am not too keen to make things ambient, because I know there are many people are close on the same boat with sample choices I was thinking it would be neat to make another subcategory specifically to highlight the time chosen for nostalgic sampling which I have named "V2k" [short for Vaporwave 2000]. If you would like to see what I mean in sense of style, have a listen at my singles compilation for last year

BloomSTRAD- Born To Die

Made it with the intention to fill gap because I always release something on my birthday.
It's equalized in a manner you can play this in loudspeakers and the volume will be constant :D
