Vaporwave is a microgenre that was born and raised on the internet in the early 2010s.
Vaporwave music is composed by taking references from older songs, web designs, images, elements of pop culture and combine them with surreal and distorted elements. Vaporwave gives nostalgia, reminiscent of memories of the past in a completely different way.
Vaporwave is characterized as electronic music and an art style. Consequently, after it gained significant exposure in 2012, subgenres of Vaporwave have evolved, including hardvapour, future funk, and mallsoft. In the internet meme, the Vaporwave aesthetic has been popular due to the 2D and 3D computer-generated graphics and not to mention bringing back the old musical styles and consumer culture in a unique manner. Vaporwave also incorporates sounds, imagery from East Asia, especially Japan. Hence one can say this art form is not limited to one region or culture but is developed globally by artists who use the internet to share their ideas.
Vaporwave is derived from the term 'vaporware', a commercial software that was never released. A few of the Vaporwave producers are Skylar Spence, Oneohtrix Point Never, James Ferraro, George Clanton, Infinity Frequencies. Some people refuse to accept this art form and term it as dead or uninspiring, as they believe it is mere stealing of '80s songs and slowing them down to create music, and it requires minimum effort. Evidently, this art form is not for everyone.
