I remember browsing the Vaporwave tag on soundcloud in early to mid 2012 and coming across the track "Super Gran Turismo" one evening, i must've listened to it at least 20 times that night. I was completely hooked on the style of music i'd just discovered. After 8 years following the vaporwave scene this album is the one that i never fail to come back to, it has a special place in my collection. Almost every track sounds just as fresh as the day it dropped.Look around bandcamp today and you'll find countless artists trying to mimic this sound, but nothing quite matches the feel of this particular album. Even if it was accidental, Dreams West created something that was ahead of it's time. With his EP dropping on Spotify of all places earlier this year (which echoes some of the qualities of this album but is much much more refined) one can only hope we see more of Dreams/James in the future.This album was released 8 days before Floral Shoppe, and in my opinion should be up there with it as an influential part of vaporwave history,Don't sleep on the opportunity to own a tape copy if you get the chance.Favourite Track: EMC Corporation.
Excellent comments...agree on all counts concerning this cassette. Top o' the heap!
