Vaporwave

A ten year old scene based aorund plunderphonics and 90s mall culture and it is punk as fuck. How did I not hear of this before. Well obviously I've been living under a rock past 10 years and that's ok.

Born of bandcamp (think Archive.org but cool and with payment systems) living on the fringes of legality it usually involves the slowing down of muzak, Jazz and 80s pop classics (often with no other treatment).

Ratskin Records - Record Label

Ratskin Records is a collective record label and archival imprint championing decolonial experimental music centered in the Bay Area. We focus on LGBTQ+, Black, Native, POC, and disabled artists who create work that is sonically and politically pushing boundaries toward liberation. We work together to create an alternative to an industry that has historically exploited and devalued artist labor and requires artists to exhaust themselves to fulfill their life’s passion. We see the work of decolonial artists as world-building activism that centers empathy and basic human needs.
