Scherbe has developed a facination for the music that is called Vaporwave. Read the interview and you’ll find out the reason for this passion. The mix is a recording from Scherbe’s opening set on the outdoor floor of our 5 years of Uncanny Valley birthday bash in September 2015. That awesome thing that happened at Sektor Evolution in Dresden.
“I guess, a few people were surprised as the music didn’t correspond to their dancing expectations. I’ve been collecting masses of tracks on Bandcamp since 2014 that I just mixed together using two laptops and iTunes spicing everything up with effects from the good old Pioneer mixer. I definitely wanted to beginn at the zero point starting with simple noises, nature, rain forest slowly bringing in melodies and recognizable loops and only after that beats and a certain amount of kitsch that is kind of a part of Vaporwave. To a certain extent, it was important for me to present this genre or the internet-reddit-hype – whatever it is called in Germany – to a wider audience, just to play this kind of music. I, personally, was fascinated by this scene and the glitch-anime-segasaturn-aesthetics as well as by the its approach to unscrupulously use everything that sounds good when pitched down. My podcast should be listened to when in the supermarket, smoking in the morning, when a video recorder hangs or when playing Pokemon shortly before being hit by a Range Rover!”
