Whether you want to admit it or not, vaporwave is a legitimate genre. Once buried deep in the bowels of the internet and ridiculed as a joke, the sample based and nostalgia heavy genre has grown into a mature and budding movement. ESPRIT 空想 has been on the forefront of said movement for a good deal of time now and continues to please. virtua.zip came out May 7th and is themost recent release from the Virginia based artist. What sets this album apart from other vaporwave releases is the shift from strictly relying on samples and working towards a more organic sound. Dig in.
