Subject: Vaporwave: The new 2020s aesthetic?

Written By: ofkx on 02/14/18 at 7:10 am

I've seen Vaporwave popping up more in sites like Reddit and Tumblr lately . Could it be the new 2020s thing? If you don't know what Vaporwave is, Wikipedia defines it as "A microgenre of electronic music and an Internet meme that emerged in the early 2010s. The music appropriates 1980s and 1990s styles of mood music such as smooth jazz, elevator music, R&B, and lounge music, typically sampling or manipulating tracks via chopped and screwed techniques and other effects."

OMG!! Thank you for finding this! If this is the new 2020s sound then I'm gonna LOVE the next decade to pieces! X3 2018 is already showing some sort of transition by what you're showing us! The Late 2010s and hopefully early 2020s are gonna rule with this type of music! Thank you ofkx!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. LOOKS LIKE NEON FUTURISTIC CULTURE IS MAKING A COMEBACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Probably since Vaporwave was tied to an anti-capitalist message (I'm not how much of this is true in 2018, but in the early 2010s this is true) while Future Funk has a more upbeat pop tone to it.

Don't mind the weird imagery in the vids. Future Funk is a subgenre of Vaporwave meaning it inherited it's aesthetic choices. I wouldn't mind if things like Future Funk influenced 2020s Pop music. Will end up giving us more upbeat dance pop again instead of the kind of slow pop we got now (not all of modern pop is slow, but it seems to be the dominant style) and will make music fun again.

Nowadays my tastes in music is largely defined by what I enjoy on the internet such as Vaporwave, Future Funk, Lofi Hip Hop, House, and Electro Swing. You don't hear these on the Top 40 radio, but online they're popular.

This is the kind of stuff I listen to now. Whether or not they'll still be popular by the early 2020s is yet to be seen. Although I will be very upset when they die out. They're my best example of good modern music. They all get old sounds and make 'em sound new. If Future Funk, Electro Swing, and Lofi Hip Hop were able to influence early '20s pop sound then I'll be happy.

Vaporwave certainly is taking over internet culture. If this keeps up it'll soon start taking over parts of pop culture as well. And thus the 2020's pop cultural aesthetic was born.

Aha, so I was right!!

I published this a couple weeks ago and the Future Funk subreddit said I didn’t understand the origins of their subgenre at all. But going by what you’re saying, I wasn’t actually far off!

This is currently the top song on Spotify’s “Today’s top hits” playlist. It’s sounds vaporwave-y, and the video’s obviously influenced by vaporwave, complete with the purple-blue color combination and the distortions.

Didn't understand the origins of the genre? Sounds like some elistest reddit users. The link you posted is alright as it gives insight and user opinion on the genre. And I have seen blogs and video posts where people do mention that Vaporwave has a chance of actually becoming the next mainstream thing you'd hear on the radio. All it needs is just for some hit artist to come in and release an album or hit single onto the radio. The key to making a new hit genre is usually just to take whatever was popular and just give it a new twist which. Future Funk is feeding off of the EDM scene, but bringsthe funk/pop sound sound to the Vaporwave/EDM scene.

Also that link does a good shot at separating Future funk and French House. People say they're the same thing, but ignore the key differences. Well French house is literally house using old disco/funk samples. Future Funk is just Vaporwave that is using funk/disco samples, but sped up and not slowed down. French house focuses on rhythm and gives off a more house vibe while Future funk is focuses on melody and gives off a more funky pop vibe. Well at least this is how I use them anyways.

I don't have much interest in the current electronic dance music scene, but I do love Vaporwave/Future Funk. The genre has been taking over the internet, but it's funny how the genre originally was just an internet meme. Now the genre has transcended far above that the point where if you go to the Vaporwave or Future funk subreddits you literally have a ton of songs releasing every day.

Here is a future funk version of it.

I honestly want Future Funk to become part of pop music since it feels like mainstream music isn't funky any.more. Hip hop certainly isn't funky anymore. Things like Nu-disco isn't as funky as old-disco. House is too busy being electro house and progressive house to be funky. Modern pop and R&B are too slow to give off that funky rhythm. In the modern age the closet you can get to modern funk is Future funk now.

It has of course a bit of 80s influence, but the watery, oceanic feel give it's own charm.

A shame the aesthetic has been put to rot since close to a decade now.

Seapunk developed along side Vaporwave. I'm not entirely sure why it died so fast. Some say it's when the genre was dabbled into by mainstream artists, but I honestly couldn't tell ya. It's like a cross between 2000s emo punk and early '10s vaporwave.

I complete agree with you. I've been saying that R&B and Pop is too slow right now. It would be nice to have songs that makes you want to get up and dance. Give me some future funk and the bright astetic of the early 2010s and I'm happy! I'm getting a little excited but should probably stop lol. It's probably wishful thinking. However, I think all we need is one person to in the mainstream to start a future funk trend. That way other artists would hop on and we could get a movement going. It worked for trap, edm and everything else.

Seapunk is not a music genre, it's an aesthetic. A lot of Vaporwave videos used it for instance and the two generally go hand-in-hand (well atleast in the beginnings of Vaporwave, the genre diverged in many different forms since).

Totally not, I’ve listened Vaporwave for a couple of years and it won’t last for no more than 5 years. On the other hand, Vaporwave is really important into Internet culture bc it’s the first music genre and artistic movement which started as meme and became so successful, actually Macintosh Plus 420 is a classic piece on YouTube

Well I won't be so sure. I can't determine when a genre dies, but people have been calling Vaporave as "dead" for a couple of years now yet it's still a popular music genre on the internet. But we'll see. Either people get sick of Vaporwave or some new internet genre emerges. Although from what I've seen popular internet genres like Lofi Hip Hop tend to just coexist with things like Vaporwave. But we'll see by the early '20s.

Wouldn't surprise me considering the new age movement is getting bigger and bigger. Any genre with a hypnotic and existentialist sound is likely to be popular soon. I can see the '20s being like a futuristic version of the '60s with super hippy (not hipster) and dream-like aesthetics. It will be like the decade for stoners.

I can get behind that idea. All I ask is for the '20s to have more optimism in its pop culture. Interest as Vaporwave was seen to give off the 80s vibe, but Vaporwave is actually a derivative of New Age music in terms of its sound which brings the Vaporwave connect all the way back to the 1960s. May have pop music with some new age elements with its artistic drive, relaxing tones, and optimistic feel.

I'd read through Neuromancer and I still have to look online for what is supposed to be going on. This is why I think Cyberpunk movies are a little better as when it comes to books they range from somewhat hard to follow to not making sense/mind confusing. Add in the fact that when characters narrate they don't speak in a clear way. They tend to speak in expressions and in some rare cases 3rd person.

I'm still surprised Neuromancer doesn't have a movie yet. We got Blade Runner, Akira, Matrix, Altered Carbon etc yet not the movie adaptation of a book that is said to have started/popularized the Cyberpunk genre.

It's more like a precursor to Cyberpunk. To me Cyberpunk started sometime between 1982 to 1984 when Bladerunner introduced the visual look of Cyberpunk while Neuromancer introduced the storytelling and inner themes of Cyberpunk.
