[VAPORWAVE, WE GUESS] The Internet-based micro-scene “vaporware” is as hard to explain as its ethereal name suggests, but we can tell you one thing: It’s giving cultural-studies nerds everywhere scholarly boners. The fledgling mini-genre gleefully pastiches cultural references with web-fueled hyper-awareness to create musical mashups of cheesy-R&B and smooth-jazz samples and a visual aesthetic mixing and matching video-game, Asian and pot-culture iconographies. Still with us? Anyway, vaporwave’s foremost local representatives, Magic Fades and Romcom, will be behind the decks at Holocene’s new monthly night for “R&B slow jams, cosmic soul, neoromantic pop and other love songs.” If their own music is any indication of what they’ll be spinning, the evening should be like hanging out in an ironic porno.
