Chinese Hackers (Redux)
Fed up with the boring sounds of average vaporwave, Chinese Hackers decided to reinvent the genre by creating a new style: vaporgoth. Before making vaporwave music, Chinese Hackers had recorded industrial music under several different aliases. Using those dark and noisy inspirations, the 17 year old decided to meld industrial grind with vaporwave to birth a new sound and put a bleak spin on the anti-capitalist genre. Chinese Hackers also drew on his own time in Hong Kong by imagining his songs playing in various landscapes throughout China. These were the songs that he imagined hearing in an empty village square, circa 1966, where the loudspeaker would blare distorted music and propaganda, and the PLA would be doing their exercises in the cold break of the dawn.
Drawing from a number of traditional as well as new sample sources, Chinese Hackers sought to create a sound that obscured itself even from veterans of the genre. Games such as Half Life 2 and Turok were heavily sampled, and combined with Chinese Hacker's own nightmare MIDI instruments. The album should be listened to after dusk when one has the time to ponder the meaning of words/concepts such as "foreign", "machine", and "authoritarianism".
Chinese Hackers’ (w i r e t a p) reinvent the vaporwave genre by creating a new style: vaporgoth. Before making vaporwave music, Chinese Hackers had recorded industrial music under several different aliases. Using those dark and noisy inspirations, the sounds of industrial grind and vaporwave birthed a new sound with a bleak spin.
