  1. 永遠の恋人
    by 夢へのポータル
    私はあなたのものよ 私はあなたのものよ
    This is like the music I'd expect to play when I go out to a lake on a nice, quiet night, take a step into the water, and suddenly see that I'm standing atop its surface, unable to sink within.

    Drawn out, ethereal synthwork, whispery, well-mixed choral sounds, and just a generally nice sense of atmosphere make a really nice vibe for this album.

    The progressions in chord structure are very slow and gradual in each piece as well, making this excellent music for relaxing or meditation.

    Rumbly, driving synth tunes with excellent percussion backing it up all the way throughout. There's a nice diversity between the tracks that lean just slightly ambient and the ones that have a lot more of a pace to them, but the mood never slides far enough off track to make its explorations feel disruptive.

    Lots of sounds that remind me of the stuff you'd be seeing in like, Kongregate and Stickpage flash game soundtracks, which is an incredibly good type of sound. Dance-y, but with depth.
  3. Angel
    by Kevin
    A lot of Kevin's work in music has been influenced by a mixture of vapor themes and classical compositions, something that I find very apparent once it comes on.

    Ambient vapor with minimal instrumentation but maximal compositional qualities, made to got lost in and enjoyed. Textures deeper than every ocean atop one another and more evocative than most artists in recent years could even dream of being. A yearning that feels like an eternity captured in only an hour.

    Pick this up, if you can.

    There's a huge lack of diversity within mallsoft as a whole (though that probably comes from the trapping of such a rigid name), so it's always interesting to see something like this that breaks barriers, especially so early in the genre.

    There's an almost abrasive wall of reverberation that breaks through the loops and cuts, almost seeming to be more present than the music itself at times. Through this, it still manages to come through as more relaxing than anything else, a feat upon itself.

    This reminds me of the kind of stuff I'd find out there on youtube with like five views, no comments, the video's entirely made up of someone plugging a winamp visualizer into the song.

    Really good pseudo-breakcore, pseudo-idm stuff that straddles the line between down and uptempo. It also manages to remind me of a lot of music I swear I know while leaving me unable to pin down why, most likely just because it manages to mesh together the best elements of most types of electronica I enjoy.
  7. GREENHOUSE
    by MACINTOSH 512KE
    温室 温室
    Various experimentations and reimaginings of the pieces that made up Floral Shoppe, packaged in a way that feels similar but wholly different.

    There's clear homages to the production styles of other producers within this piece (most noticeably the heavily Saint Pepsi reminiscent chopping and effects within 1999, which sounds like it's right out of Late Night Delight).

    By making what amounts to, in a sense, a recursive transformation of these bits into something new, it feels doubly as fresh.

  8. Crimes Against the Internet
    by Triple-Q
    Go Crazy/Sudachi no Uta Go Crazy/Sudachi no Uta
    I don't pick up a lot of things that aren't through codes or physical purchases, but I had to make an exception for this since it's probably now my favorite collection of mashups.

    There's a pretty healthy mixture of both humor and serious mashes to satisfy anyone who goes in, and I feel this is the first one in Triple-Q's catalogue to also have a lot of cohesion in its length and tone.

    The length's perfect, the selection's perfect, and the ideas are perfect. I can't ask for much more.
  9. ✨READY SET AMEN!✨
    by MUTINY
    ALL THAT ALL THAT
    There's too many breaks in this album, but like in a good way. If you ever watched someone make cotton candy for you at like a fair or something it's like watching them give you way more stuff for your money than you should get.

    And it's like, you almost want to say "stop, that's enough!!!", but can't because it's not like you're getting a lot of a bad thing.

    Anyways this album is good and I'm probably going to run it again when I'm playing something like Tekken when I need the reaction boost.
  10. Recluse Syndicate
    by Hustle Flesh
    Blood Fountain BGM Blood Fountain BGM
    Really nice experimental electronica.

    This album really rewards you if you've listened to its predecessor (Blood Level Increase), as there's a lot of callbacks in terms of instrumentation and sampling in certain tracks. Past that however, there's a lot more coming from this that's been heavily improved in (since I'd regard both to be about the same attempt in style).

    Vocals are a lot better, more in the forefront as well. Mixing on them's a tier up too, there's backing vocals, all that.
  11. HANDZ
    by HATENA
    TOYS! TOYS!
    More music from Hatena, so it's automatically good. They've always been excellent at presenting their vhs pop with really interesting cuts and excellent use of percussion in their tracks, and this album's no different.

    The best tracks are the ones where the samples get really glitchy and the drums start overpowering everything, because there's just some sort of extreme vibe to it.

    It's impossible not to dance, or at least bob your head, to stuff that's as driving as this type of music.
  12. the end is always too soon
    by Phirnis / qualchan.
    pop pop
    It's always interesting seeing qualchan. splitting pieces up with more noisier, abrasive artists on his albums whenever he does.

    There's a nice contrast to be found between the more sporadic, experimental loops on the first half when you get to pair with a more cohesive force, like watching a thick darkness melt over onto a perfectly sculpted statue and create something oddly captivating.

    Fans of either experimental, industrial loop work and psychedelic tape manipulations will like this one.

  15. 過去と未来の間
    by QuadratoX
    ビヨンド ザ ダークネス ビヨンド ザ ダークネス
    As much as it pains me to see most of ☒'s discography soft-deleted, this was definitely a treat to listen to after the fact.

    Sort of a mix between ambient house, vaportrap, and acid-influenced breaks, all stuff I'm really into.

    This reminds me a lot of 死んだ空の街 in its base elements, though three years since then have allowed a ton of maturity in the complexity, instrumentation, and atmosphere of this album. It's probably in my top 5 for this artist, and I've listened to a lot of them.
  16. Devoted Waves
    by Idol
    Lovers Phase Lovers Phase
    Rashida bringing back this alias over the last year was probably one of the most powerful moves in vapor for the last few years. While the previous pieces under the alias were also incredible (I still put on Sonar from time to time), I feel like there's definitely a higher focus on the new age aspect with this revival.

    More versed in soundscapes than slush for these last couple projects, I feel like Devoted Waves does some excellent work as a texturally polished, well-presented ambient album.
  17. Temple
    by Machina Pensant
    120710 120710
    Smooth, longform loop-based classic vapor. There's a good mix of track lengths on this record, with some of them only lasting a couple minutes (most notably the bonus tracks) and certain ones taking their time to really whittle out the textures of the samples.

    Everything manages to feel seamless despite clearly pulling from several diverse sources, including hip-hop, jazz, and lounge beats.
  18. Amaranth Loops

    Amaranth Loop V Amaranth Loop V
    I've kind of put off leaving a review on this for a while because it really had to sit with me (and I had to listen to it again to really feel prepped).

    The VGM influences here are noticeable but experimented with to sound just off enough to draw your attention, instrumentation used as a base rather than the whole central idea.

    Bleeding synth loops that sound like a Dali painting looks are pretty much the main focus, so if that's your ticket to ride it's going to be your type of album.
  19. IMMERSED
    by c h l o r i n e m i s t プール
    Inclined Population Inclined Population
    Since the tape includes immersion I got this immediately, clicked so much with that album after I did a dive through this guy's work a couple years back. Vibiest classic-style vapor out there (check E95 for it!).

    The main digital album (Immersed) is pretty nice too, the artist told me he was going for a telepath-type sound back when I was interviewing him and it shows, lots of phasers and muddied textures, but like in a good way! Feels like you're one of the fish in the aquarium after hours.

    More good chip-hop from the master. This is a lot more tonally consistent than the last one and while that's something that would usually be a downer for me, this manages to be at the perfect length for it to be an excellent burst of chill.

    Also interestingly there's a lot more clearly original instrumentation within this iteration, showing a lot of progress between the two albums in a way that really makes this one shine in a way the original Hoverbeatz lacked just a little bit in.
