I had the pleasure of speaking with the talented Dean Terry AKA Tupperwave to discuss, among other things, what he’s been up to during the lockdown, his newest music.
Geometric Lullaby is, for my money, one of the better labels in the Vaporwave game today. Sure, there are many labels out there doing what Dennis (the founder) does, but not many do it better. I firmly believe that Geometric Lullaby is a cut above in quality of product, customer service, and its active roster of artists.
That classic feeling of overwhelming discovery was two-fold with Vaporwave, as part of the allure of the scene, was the anonymity of the artists and their work. In came Pad Chennington.
VILL4IN is, for my money, one of the better labels in the Vaporwave game today. Sure, there are many labels out there doing what Ben (the founder) does, but not many do it better. I firmly believe that VILL4IN is a cut above in quality of product, customer service, and its active roster of artists.
A handful of years ago, I fully immersed myself into the Vaporwave scene. One of the first Vaporwave records I ever bought was Escape to New York by Ursula’s Cartridges. Since then, Ursula’s Cartridges has become a staple of my Vaporwave listening sessions.
There are specific albums that change your outlook and perspective on music. For me, 2814 and their album Birth of a New Day was one of those. It is a cornerstone of listening for Vaporwave fans everywhere.
Cityman Productions is a Vaporwave focused label out of Finland, run by Tony Vesalainen. For my money, they’re one of the best in the game and only getting stronger; perhaps after this interview, you’ll agree too.
The rare artist comes in hot and continues to impress. Producer and musician Ben Braun has done that with his project Hotel Pools. Ben has already produced three modern-day indie-electronic classics under the moniker.
Tiger Blood Tapes are one of the new(ish) kids on the block when it comes to Vaporwave, but over the last few years, they have really come into their own, and grown to be one of the better labels out there for your Vapor-related vinyl and cassette needs.
Albums like I’ll Try Living Like This, CLASSROOM SEXTAPE and Heavy Black Heart are some of the finest and most uniquely interesting the genre has to offer. Today, I’ve got none other than Tech Honors with us.
