>>61>Not even a statement about modern music making or anything.
That is pretty false.
Synthwave can differ greatly from anything made during the 80s musically,
but chooses to incorporate a fresh view of the 80s sonic spectrum, by using old synths, coupled with modern production.
Listen to com truise, mitch murder or pertubator, and you will know what I mean.
Vaporwave is not even a derivative of anything really, though its definition is kind of fuzzy.
Anyway while sampling may be used heavy-handedly sometimes, the presentation and purpose of the material differs so greatly, that you can't call vaporwave a derivative genre.
