Unsung Heroes: The YouTube Pioneers Who Saved Vaporwave

Released: March 15th, 2023

Follow us on your favourite Podcast Platform!

Catch us in our  Discord  server to join in on the conversation! 👉 https://discord.gg/DVdDzr8 

On today’s episode our conversation revolves around YouTube and the creators that played a crucial role in the continued life and ongoing exploration of the Vaporwave genre. We discuss the extent of YouTube’s place in the cultural resurgence of the genre, and what we owe the people that made the early mixes, and explored the sound.

We will examine how the YouTube platform helped the genre evolve beyond its initial sound & aesthetic, and what the relationship between the platform and the genre means. We recognize the unsung heroes of Vaporwave’s continued existence, and how through YouTube, they shaped and spread the genre. Join us as we explore the significance of YouTube in the Vaporwave movement, and ask the thought-provoking question, would Vaporwave still exist if YouTube did not exist?

Hop on the Utopia District train to find out, through an intriguing conversation on how technology and creativity can shape musical movements, and the potential impacts of online platforms on music cultures.

Corporate Takeover: Exploring the Meaning of Vaporwave and Lost Internet

 

Follow us on your favourite Podcast Platform!

Individuality has been lost in the corporate playground that is the internet. We talk about how businesses have dominated the internet and its current state. What does this entail for the erosion of our individuality and our online identities?

Welcome to the Utopia District Podcast! Explore with us the numerous facets of the internet that we have forgotten over time. Remember the day when you could customise your desktop and use special media players? We talk about how these things are now just distant memories and how the internet has transformed.

Do you recall the earlier versions of sites like MySpace? We think back on these previous websites and how they changed through time. But what about the future and development of online art? We talk about where the NFT art is at in 2023.

What does the term “vaporwave” signify to you? What is your interpretation of it? We examine the various ways that vaporwave has been interpreted as well as how the internet has embraced it as a subculture. We also talk about the attractiveness of vaporwave and why people feel such a strong connection to it.

Finally, we talk about the disappointing situation of not being able to communicate your vaporwave experience. Although it might be difficult to put your ideas and feelings regarding this subculture into words, we make an effort to do so here.

Join us as we go deeply into the Vaporwave and Lost Internet worlds.
