What are your favourite sample sources? Hello everyone! This is my first time trying to start a conversation in Agora Road's Macintosh Cafe, and I'm interested to know what kind of music do you like to work with while doing sample based material.

Me personally, I mostly like to sample Japanese music in general (mostly J-Pop). Sometimes I pick songs from anime related projects or even go through an artist involved's discography to find interesting material. My EP "Forever In My Heart" is a good example of my experimentation with these kinds of music. I'll leave it here if you feel curious:


There have been times where I just go through my computer looking for music that sounds good enough to start working with, and lately, I've been thinking about songs from my childhood to download to add that nostalgic value to my future works.

What about you? What do you like to sample, and what's the process do you go through while choosing or searching for samples?

Have a nice day!

Re: Different vaporwave meanings I think it is great that there is no uniform, single definition of Vaporwave. There is something beyond words that Vaporwave manages to evoke and we, the vaporwave community, haven't been quite able to put our finger on it.
This partly explains why the concept of vaporwave is stretched so widely that almost everything from the early 80's to the late 90's fits under the vaporwave umbrella. I'm not sure whether this is problematic. What I do find problematic is the "aesthetics police", that it is up to some people to decide what is deemed worth remembering and canonizing through vaporwave and what is not. Ultimately it is a highly personal artform based on hazy memories and associations of a future that are bound to differ from person to person.

What is vaporwave to you does not necessarily have to be vaporwave to me. and that is ok. Who am I to deny you of fondly remembering a future that a piece of your culture represented?

Don't support PZA, This "artist" got caught stealing again I got this from the r/vaporwave subreddit
Tracklisting with references to the originals:

Little piece of proof for the haters:

We can safely now assume that everything this "artist" puts out is stolen whole cloth. He even tried to get this pressed to vinyl through Qrates, even more blatantly trying to make profit off other people's work.

Ofcourse he's since made that album disappear and block a load of people on twitter.

Re: February 2019 Producer's Thread! Nice!

As a Dutchman, this year I'm going to explore what Vaporwave would sound like (would have sounded like?) for The Netherlands. I've been digging around in the 80's and 90's music of holland and found some truly aesthetic works. Last month I've released a eurodance-inspired vaporwave EP which I'm keen to get some feedback on! I chose eurobeat because it was the first time in history that the Netherlands contributed to global music in a significant way. The next thing will probably be more traditional-styled vaporwave (saxophones in malls, ads, hypnagogic drifts, you know the drill)

Any music producers in here? And by "producers" I just mean do any of you make any music ("producer" sounds so posh)? I'm a long time "traditional" musician, like guitar and bass, but I've just recently started trying to learn a DAW. I've tried FL Studio and Ableton Live, and for some reason the former feels better to me. There's just so much stuff to learn in a DAW that it's a bit disheartening when you realise that you can't just jump in and start making the music you hear in your head right away; it takes probably at least weeks to learn the program at first.

It would be nice to hear of others making their own music, and maybe exchange tips on workflows etc?

Re: Don't support PZA, This "artist" got caught stealing again
Tried to listen to the Podcast with him, HKE and Shima. Couldn't make it further than 30 minutes in.

where can i find this, cursory google search has netted only confusion, and as much as i feel that his actions are shameful and distasteful, and should be left in the past like his music, i am still interested in this whole controversy, mainly i think to learn how not to be like him and to understand how he came to do this so i can avoid the type of actions and thinking that lead to such a mess, as i am tooth-cutting vaporwave artist (not new to the music but making and producing it) i wish to not make such a mistake as him.
tldr- what podcast are you referring to and could you provide directions to it, thanks! :D
oh shoot nvm I found it!!!

Here is the podcast with PZA, HKE, and SHIMA
