V ▲ P Y D has been doing serious work compiling and curating some great tunes and interviews via his Assorted Vaporwave mix series – currently being uploaded to Soundcloud. Catch them while you can, with only one-or-two remaining available simultaneously – though there seems to be plans to archive old issues on another platform. Tune in now!
Happy September music-lovers, and oh what a season it has been – seeing some independent labels closing their doors which is always sad, but it’s incredibly exciting to see brand new movements propelling forward!

Nice washed-out vapor sounds presented by Vivarium Recordings, featuring 14 lush tracks with a nice lounge vibe. Huge focus on emotion and texture in this one, making me feel like I am standing in a hotel lobby in 1994 waiting on hold on a payphone. The whole release also gave me very light Steely Dan vibes, particularly with the highlighted samples and melodies used. Overall a very enjoyable listen!
