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.
