>daily reminder that Floral Shoppe is broporwave trash and should be retrospectively seen as proto-broporwave.
See videos for example.
>vapor elitism about Floral Shoppe being shit
Do you realize how moronic your entire argument is? You're saying it's practically proto-broporwave, but that very argument undermines your entire point. Floral Shoppe sounds like broporwave because fucking everyone has tried to copy it. Floral Shoppe is *the* vaporwave album, and without it, Eccojams would be forgotten amongst the sea of plunderphonics and vaporwave would never have been created. There are better albums, seeing as it's essentially the first vaporwave album, but it isn't nearly as bad as you're saying. The entire reason you don't like it is because of the people who copycatted it, which is just plain stupid.
In other words: You're saying it's reminiscent of broporwave. But that's because Floral Shoppe was the first and still most popular trve vaporwave. Broportrash came out of the genre, not the album, and the only connection is that Floral Shoppe started the genre as it's known. Although even if it was the direct creator of broporwave, retroactively defaming music because of copycats is ridiculous. It'd be like saying Boards of Canada suck because of Tycho.
I get what you're saying, but I already responded to this claim.
Yes, Floral Shoppe practically kickstarted vaporwave's popularity, but it's influence on everyone else has only been negative.
It really doesn't matter how important it is, because the album itself is terrible. A cheap imitation of Eccojams (also a mediocre album at best), where some tracks are just complete theft of the originals with little to no editing done.
So yeah, vaporwave wouldn't have existed without Floral Shoppe, but it's also been the curse of the genre too. If only something that was actually good and creative received the media hype that Floral Shoppe did then I believe vaporwave wouldn't have the negative stigma attached to it that it does.
Maybe it was *the* vaporwave album, but I think it should retrospectively be seen as the lazy broporwave trash that it is.
Can I just remind everyone that the term "broporwave" is a throw back to "brostep" and in that regard refers to vaporwave that is made to be accessible to commoners. This is done by taking influence from popular music but still keeping the vaporwave asethetic, for example including hip-hop beats, well polished production, and removing the unlistenable chopped n screwed influence that vaporwave has.
Just so we're on the same page...
The title makes no sense -- this whore shows zero regret about porn, and judging from the way she immediately snakes around to hungrily lap up the load that just drained out of her cunt, she's a seasoned pro. Good to see a creampie, including its twitching depositing. About the only weird thing (beside the much-noted table) is her bush, which is retro in its fullness yet is carefully hedged, with her smooth everywhere else. Whatever, girl. Hairless looks better.
>This is broporwave trash, listen to some true vaporwave like Ecco Jams and the list could go on...
>This is brostep trash, listen to some ture dubstep like Burial and the list could go on....
You're that guy.
No, I even said Eccojams is mediocre. I'm no vapor elitist. In fact, I'm the opposite of that. Currently I'm listening to the "Future Trail" album someone posted up in the thread and despite the fact it's probably just some guy trying to get pepole to listen to his album, it's still much better than Floral Shitte.
what I don't understand is why someone out there doesn't just make a 30-45 second-ish song... a perfectly normal imitation of an actual shitty easy listening jazz song in the 80s/90s, right? then they just remix that. It would certainly save them a lot of time dealing with copyright bullshit, and it would be a much more interesting creative process.
Hell, when I first listened to Macintosh Plus's Floral Shoppe, that's exactly what I thought it was. I was actually kind of disappointed when I learned that like 90% of that shit was stolen and simply remixed.
>but I already responded to this claim.
And missed most of the points.
>but it's influence on everyone else has only been negative.
Except I just proved that this wasn't a valid argument.
>because the album itself is terrible
In your opinion.
>A cheap imitation of Eccojams
That was the point. It was basically an ode to Eccojams she made with her friends in an IRC chat that wasn't even meant to be released
>where some tracks are just complete theft of the originals with little to no editing done
You must really not be familiar with vaporwave. If you think the editing on Floral Shoppe is lazy, you'd have a heart attack if you realized that the majority of vaporwave does less editing than that.
> If only something that was actually good and creative received the media hype that Floral Shoppe did then I believe vaporwave wouldn't have the negative stigma attached to it that it does
I really doubt it. It was a genre arising from the channels of seapunk and witch house. Even if it was the most intricate album ever made, the genre would still be filled with cheap imitators and trash tumblr aesthetic because that's the environment that it came out of.
> but I think it should retrospectively be seen as the lazy broporwave trash that it is
And I directly addressed why this wasn't valid criticism either.
You may have already responded, but you didn't address much. You've been repeating the same 3 or 4 points since the last thread.

>ends on a strong note. enjoy the pseudo-Asian influences
overall: 5.875 / 10
>It's not. You're just using it as "anything I don't like".
Nope, I'm using it because it has all the hallmarks of a broporwave album. Lazily made eccojams and at times pure theft.
>Vaporwave by nature is memey, lazy and shit.
Precisely because of Floral Shoppe's negative influence, which is my whole point. There is actually some really great and creative vaporwave that is detailed and rich.
If all vaporwave was memey and lazy, I would never listen to it. It's not all like that, so I do listen to it.
>That's what makes vaporwave great, is the fact that you have to use samples for it to be legit. The whole genre is based on samples. Anything else is just regular, boring electronic music.
And the possibilities are endless with samples, which is why vaporwave will never die, because of the sheer amount of them available now from 50 years of recording. It's all been done, and that's why most electronic music that isn't pure sample based plundering actually sounds more confined and stale...with samples you're getting all of the magic that went into making the original samples, like the room, the engineer, the groove of the drummer, the mics they used, the mastering etc...where as most regular electronic is always some guy with a midi controller playing with the same softsynths everyone else has or maybe a real hardware Juno or something, and programming the same boring, quantized, mechanical drum patterns with no feel.
>with samples you're getting all of the magic that went into making the original samples, like the room, the engineer, the groove of the drummer, the mics they used, the mastering etc...where as most regular electronic is always some guy with a midi controller playing with the same softsynths everyone else has or maybe a real hardware Juno or something, and programming the same boring, quantized, mechanical drum patterns with no feel.
this is a good explanation. In parts of Floral Shoppe (especially the third track with a lot of skipping) the nuances of the original recording are so strange to hear, it's being played by actual people but it sounds so robotic and inhuman, it's eerie

Please see the two videos in the OP and explain to me why stealing other people's musing and retitling it isn't terrible?
>That was the point. It was basically an ode to Eccojams she made with her friends in an IRC chat that wasn't even meant to be released
So you are basically admitting the album is a big shitty joke?
>You must really not be familiar with vaporwave. If you think the editing on Floral Shoppe is lazy, you'd have a heart attack if you realized that the majority of vaporwave does less editing than that.
Of course I know this, but I listen to actual good vaporwave and not slowed down 80's broporwave trash like Floral Shoppe and its copycats.
>I really doubt it. It was a genre arising from the channels of seapunk and witch house. Even if it was the most intricate album ever made, the genre would still be filled with cheap imitators and trash tumblr aesthetic because that's the environment that it came out of.
Perhaps you're right about this, but there would be less. Thankfully there's still a lot of good vaporwave that dismisses the Floral Shoppe broporwave guidelines.
>And I directly addressed why this wasn't valid criticism either.
On this we're just going to have to agree to disagree. I don't consider Floral Shoppe's seminal influence due to the media hype it received to hold any strength to the claim the album is good or important.
It's broporwave trash, and my videos linked in the OP prove that.
What you're implying though is that people are unable to create authentic sounding 80s and 90s music, and that's kind of bullshit. I'm not saying that the recreated pieces aren't supposed to be slowed down or overlayed or filled with audio artifacts, of course they are, that's part of what makes them vaporwave. what I'm saying is that it will be much more impressive, interesting, and on the legal side of things if they just make a short song and then fuck with it until it sounds rad as hell.
I posted a list of good stuff from late 2014 in the past thread, so that will give you a small idea of the stuff I like. A big mix of things. All of which are noticeably more creative than Floral Shit
What the fuck are you talking about it makes no sense? The album was an ironic stab at seapunk and other memegenres, just like how Floral Shoppe 2 was an ironic stab at broporwave. Both fucking terrible reasons to create an album.
Why is it so hard for you to admit Floral Shoppe is shit? Did you buy it on cassette or something?
no they can. but it always sounds like a shitty imitation or recreated.
you'll never match the magic, $$$, gear or talent that went into those original recordings. never. that's what makes samples.
I'm not a newbie. It was part of a discussion about 2014 vaporwave, so I listed some albums I felt have been good.
I'm taking it though that you're one of these faggots who can only enjoy vaporwave made in 2011-12? That typical /mu/ hipster mentality. Pretty pathetic.
Stop using broporwave incorrectly. Floral Shoppe 2 isn't broporwave, Blank Banshee is broporwave and so is the rest of the vaporwave you like.
Floral Shoppe IS shit, and it's great.
Floral Shoppe covers very interesting aesthetic grounds and does so with creative music. Anyone who thinks it's just Diana Ross slower down doesn't know how to listen to music. It's incredibly dynamic and does a lot with the source material. The songs are very much made Mac+'s own. The vast majority of vaporwave criticism is meme based and twice as idiotic as they claim vaporwave to be.

Saying "I don't think so" isn't proof.
>stealing other people's musing and retitling it isn't terrible?
That's literally the essence of vaporwave. If you think this then all vaporwave is terrible.
>So you are basically admitting the album is a big shitty joke?
No I'm admitting that you are.
>but I listen to actual good vaporwave and not slowed down 80's broporwave trash like Floral Shoppe and its copycats.
Translation: "I listen to music that isn't even vaporwave and hold all vaporwave to those standards." Why are you even posting in a thread where 99% of the music is bad to you?
>On this we're just going to have to agree to disagree.
Except opinion doesn't matter when it comes to logic. Logic is logic, and retroactive criticism isn't valid in this case, as I point out with the BoC /= Tycho analogy.
Something any fucker who's had a DAW for more than an hour could do, you stupid shit.
She took a cut from it, eq'd it slightly to add a little more treble and looped it, and that's it. Completely uncreative and pure theft.
Pretty much, everything else is either a eye-rolling conceptual rehash of what has been done before, accessible broporwave shit for yung lean fans or stuff so far removed from Vaporwave that I wouldn't even consider it so.
>Saying "I don't think so" isn't proof.
Yet that's all you're doing
>That's literally the essence of vaporwave. If you think this then all vaporwave is terrible.
Then our opinions of what vaporwave is differ
>Translation: "I listen to music that isn't even vaporwave and hold all vaporwave to those standards." Why are you even posting in a thread where 99% of the music is bad to you?
Because there's plenty of vaporwave that doesn't subscribe to the Floral Shoppe broporwave crap style.
>Except opinion doesn't matter when it comes to logic. Logic is logic, and retroactive criticism isn't valid in this case, as I point out with the BoC /= Tycho analogy.
It's not my opinion when I say Floral Shoppe is talentless trash and at times theft. Please see videos in the OP and tell me it's anything but.
Then it's nothing but a mixtape. It's not her music, it's not her album.
The funny thing is, I'm pretty sure the talentless slut refers to it as a mixtape on her own website too. You faggots probably hold her shitty made-in-1-hour mixtape in high regard when she herself probably couldn't give a fuck about it.
I still find decent non-vaporwave stuff in these threads. But I mostly dropped by the school the new-comers who say shit like ">daily reminder that Floral Shoppe is broporwave trash and should be retrospectively seen as proto-broporwave."
Here, I just made one.
You just have to click "speed 0.5" in the bottom right and it's done.
Funny thing is, doing that actually is more work than what she did on the track I linked in the OP
>Then it's nothing but a mixtape. It's not her music, it's not her album.
if you dont view it as a creation of hers than you need to change your views on art
>The funny thing is, I'm pretty sure the talentless slut refers to it as a mixtape on her own website too. You faggots probably hold her shitty made-in-1-hour mixtape in high regard when she herself probably couldn't give a fuck about it.
what website? BOTR bandcamp?
>she herself probably couldn't give a fuck about it
people have literally explained to oyu
it's supposed to be an ironic album
of course she doesn't care
>Yet that's all you're doing
No, I'm pointing out flaws in your logic. You're sitting here crying that a genre unrelated to what you want isn't what you want. It's like going into a hip-hop thread and throwing a shitfit because there's no guitar solos.
>Then our opinions of what vaporwave is differ
Vaporwave is an existing thing. It's up to fact, not opinion, and your perception of what it is, is wrong. You even said Floral Shoppe and Eccojams are the two most influential albums, and according to you, they're both lazy theft.
>It's not my opinion when I say Floral Shoppe is talentless trash
Do you realize how stupid you sound saying that? I saw your videos, they 'prove' nothing, because there's nothing to prove. You're stating that your opinions on a subjective topic are objectively correct. You're either medically stupid or have no idea how art criticism works.
>arguing in a vaporwave thread.
I see nothing is new here. Anyways, check this out, this is my favorite album this year.
>m-maybe if I make an unfunny joke I w-won't have to actually put my money w-where my mouth i-i-is
Go ahead, you know the sample. Make us a legitimate replica of that 420 track, chops and all. If you don't do this you lose all credibility.

I'll just reply to both of you here, because we're just going in circles.
Yes, my definition of vaporwave is different from yours it seems. I consider Blank Banshee to be vaporwave and you two probably don't. There is no law that says something can't be vaporwave if it isn't "ironic" and lazily made pitchshifted 80's songs, though.
I am enjoying the evolution of vaporwave, or what you two probably consider non-vaporwave. You two will be left behind stuck listening to your hipster faggot shit like Floral Shoppe, but that's your loss.
However, there is no denying that Floral Shoppe displays no talent from its creator. It's just her own shitty take on Eccojams, an already mediocre album, which at times is nothing but theft.
There's nothing more I can really say about it, and nothing else either of you two can either, so I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.
>However, there is no denying that Floral Shoppe displays no talent from its creator. It's just her own shitty take on Eccojams, an already mediocre album, which at times is nothing but theft.
this is blatantly wrong though :^)
>People defending the amount of work put into Vaporwave albums
>People complaining about Vaporwave albums lacking musical effort

All kinds of plebs in this thread.
>this is trash
>literally anyone could've done this
>shows no talent from the creator.
>it was probably done in minutes
ill review it if you send me a link, ive listened to all the essential vaporwave albums already, im interested in what people are currently creating. plus every album can be reviewed in a civil way, theres no point in throwing somebody under the bus because they are new artists
>Yes, my definition of vaporwave is different from yours it seems
*you* don't get to define vaporwave. It's already defined. You can cover your ears and wish it was different all you want, but it is how it is regardless of your opinion.
>You two will be left behind stuck listening to your hipster faggot shit like Floral Shoppe, but that's your loss
Nice strawman. You sure like to assume a lot, don't you? You're completely off.
>However, there is no denying that Floral Shoppe displays no talent from its creator
I just did, and I am. You've yet to prove to us by recreating the 420 track. You can sit here and ignore the post all you want, but the second you ignored it, you permanently lost all credibility and were proven objectively wrong.
>an already mediocre album
It's literally the grandather of vaporwave. The single album that started it all. You again just lost all credibility.
>so I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.
So you start the thread crying about objectivity, then end saying "b-b-but it's all just opinion!!!" when you get dumpstered.
>*you* don't get to define vaporwave. It's already defined. You can cover your ears and wish it was different all you want, but it is how it is regardless of your opinion.
Except that is exactly what you are doing.
Music genres evolve, you absolute retard. If they didn't, then Radiohead would be doing rock around the clock covers.
>I just did, and I am. You've yet to prove to us by recreating the 420 track. You can sit here and ignore the post all you want, but the second you ignored it, you permanently lost all credibility and were proven objectively wrong.
There's a total difference in recreating an entire song note for note, even if it is a shit song, and lazily smashing together some samples with little thought in two minutes. If you actually produced music you should know this. I even could do this anyway, but I don't have to and I won't.
>It's literally the grandather of vaporwave. The single album that started it all. You again just lost all credibility.
So what? What relevance does that have on whether it is good or not?
>I even could do this anyway, but I don't have to and I won't.
you see guys? it's super easy and can be done in literally two minutes, he just doesn't feel like it. I haven't heard a rebuttal this bulletproof since middle school
He is vaporwave to me and many other people
Enjoy your precious genre "dying" before your eyes! All hail Blank Banshee and every other credible artist who takes the vaporwave aesthetic and does something original and interesting with it.
>Except that is exactly what you are doing.
I'm not making it up, I'm going off of pure numbers and history. Eccojams and Floral Shoppe are the prodigal creators of vaporwave and have influenced every single album in the genre. You say they're both trash and that everything that follows it is too, which means you don't like vaporwave. Again, it's like going into a hip-hop thread and crying about the lack of guitar solos
>If you actually produced music you should know this
But I do, and I'm more well-known then every half-vapor hack you've thrown at me.
> I even could do this anyway, but I don't have to and I won't.
No you can't. You really expect anyone to believe you? You're copping out so hard right now, and the fact that you refuse removes all credibility from what you say. You not doing it is saying that it was actually difficult to make.
>What relevance does that have on whether it is good or not?
The fact that the entire genre is indebted to it. The genre you don't understand at all.
What if I do it, but I do it in the Vektroid style and just steal her version of the song, retitle it and say it's mine? Does that count, or does it only count when Vektroid does it?
Ok, then broporwave by your definition of the term is great. Blank Banshee is a fantastic artist and Vektriod is shit by comparison.
I love how the tide is turning anyway. It''s literally only these /mu/ threads where the hangers-on still crying for the slowed down 80's trash and claim everything else is shit. Everyone else is moving on. As always, /mu/ fags are stick in the past because they're so image-conscious and hipster.
I'm out anyway, later fags
>generic soundcloud trap with stupid N64 samples
>I'm out anyway, later fags
Oh, how convenient you had to leave right as you actually had to prove your argument for once. You just lost the argument, friendo.
I agree with OP. Floral Shoppe is "proto-broperwave" trash. Vaporwave is trash anyway. What Vektroid did was create a platform to where people can cry for attention without having to do much of anything. The idea behind eccojams was that they could be done by anybody. By taking that and coupling it with the concept of FSV this new "genre" was blessed with legitimacy when it's really just bastardization. This was better when it was just sunsetcorp-style videos on YouTube with no gimmicky names attached. No "releases". As soon as it was transformed into something that could be abused it was, and then there spawned this weird elitism against "broperwave" which is exactly what everybody was doing anyways. Vaporwave exists solely for whores, and yes, Vektroid/Vektordrum (for MySpace kids) was doing this before the "vaporwave" title but it doesn't change what she was doing. It's all bastardization and abuse.
Broporwave, really? This must be a joke by now. I understand dubstep fags making up the word "brostep" to defend their shitty genre, and I can understand how people would be dumb enough to think vapor wave is a genre but combining thr two? Get the fuck off of this board.
this is not even remotely related to vaporwave, i might still consider it though, ill probably review oceangrunge before this because that genre is actually related to vaporwave

honestly, I think Lopatin was just being humble, because honestly you have to have some knowledge of audio and some taste to do it.
He said as long as you have the rudimentary tools to edit audio you have the ability to make eccojams, which is true. Non-destructive transposition of pitch (IE no time stretching, or at least solid time stretching algorithms), delay, reverb, and some flanging is found on Eccojams. None of this requires much knowledge at all. It's a simple meditative musical practice. Sample choice is something completely different but taking the juiciest bits of pop songs, usually the hooks, is usually the best and simplest way to go. A majority of the samples on Eccojams are just choruses looped. "Be real. It doesn't matter anyway..." I don't think he was being modest at all. A good eccojam can be made in a couple of minutes.
