Ready to party? Explore the North, Hiraeth Records and Vapor Memory will bring the – for some of you yet to be discovered – Vaporwave universe right into your living room on Saturday, November 21 starting from 4PM EST / 9PM GMT / 10PM CET. It will be broadcasted to YouTube, Twitch, and DLive.
Twenty of the greatest Vaporwave artists out there alternate with interesting newcomers. To paint you a picture: imagine forgotten music from the 80s & 90s such as lift muzak and soundtracks for tv commercials and mix it with dreamy and sultry ambient. Then add some Windows logos, nineties web design, cat pictures, palmtrees, Japanese characters and a lot of ironic social criticism. A fantastic genre that in our opinion far too few people know of. After Explore the Vapor, there will be a lot more Vapor-connaisseurs! Explore the Vapor!
