Vaporwave has long been a passion of mine. To listen to, that is. With no musical bone in my body, I had to find some way into the scene. As it happens, I rather enjoy writing. So I decided to turn those talents toward vaporwave, first with Private Suite Magazine, and now with Utopia District.
I’m obsessed with mallsoft, which I cherish above all, but honestly I love vaporwave in most of its innumerable forms. When I’m not pining over vaporwave or my ever-growing cassette collection, there are a handful of other things I like to do. Chief among them is gaming, which I do basically every day. And hockey, where I’ve been a Colorado Avalanche fan my entire life.

Darkfez Futuretro is your VaporGramps, nearly the oldest critter in vaporwave. You adopted this aesthetic; he was born to it. Graduate of the class of 1988. Once upon a time, a New Romantic and OG (Original Goth. Yeah, he’s old.). Detesting mall-walkers, he loves the layered post-capitalist nostalgia of mallsoft. Will boogy to city pop and future funk with the correct inducements. Go on. Make an offer.

May have a drinking problem. Definitely has a gambling problem. But on the side, he is a proud lover/merciless critic of vaporwave and all things aesthetic. Can’t produce music or make art to save his life, but he can write… sort of ok? Regardless, the vaporwave scene is stuck with him, at least until disco makes a comeback.
