Isn’t it? That’s actually the video I learned about it from. Tracing the paths of influence through music is absolutely fascinating to me, and I especially love seeing unexpected connections like that. Probably why I love both vaporwave and hip-hop so much; they’re positively dripping with that kind of thing.

I will check it out. The only vaporwave album I have really got into was the Saint Pepsi one. Love the Toad sound bite from Mario Kart 64 used in one of the first tracks :joy:
