Sure there must be fans of this abominational phenomenon of a genre here, too. Have been looking into the ol' vapey myself recently only to find myself being kinda picky. Some atmospheric, mellow stuff I like very much, whereas some more experimental stuff mostly doesn't quite do anything to me.

Also as a random addition, I once did some eperimental recordings myself, trying to figure out how to record and produce music through trial and error. None of it is any good but why I mention it is because I vapourified a track from yore, just for the lulz. Don't really recommend checking this out but whatever. For our collective amusement only:
I'm pretty sure the beginnings are attributed to Chuck Person and Macintosh Plus!
Sure they are, it just crossed my mind yesterday that Nanocyborg has been doing similar kinda stuff for quite long Smile

I was pretty surprised to find 4000 views on the "Vaporizer" album I put together last year. I hadn't checked it out in a good few months. Oh it sure got its share of downvotes, but Perturbator and myself both enjoy it thoroughly.

This one sounds good!  The other one didn't sound like v-wave to me.
