Welcome To The Vaporwave Wiki.
This wiki is dedicated to showing information of albums and artists of the Vaporwave genre. Vaporwave is a musical micro-genre that emerged in the early 2010s among Internet communities. It is characterized by a nostalgic fascination with retro cultural aesthetics, video games, technology and advertising, and often involves the fusion of modern popular music with lounge, smooth jazz and elevator music. Musical sampling is prevalent within the genre, with samples often pitched, layered or altered in classic chopped and screwed style. Central to the style is often a critical or satirical preoccupation with consumer capitalism, popular culture, and new-age tropes.
