Dream Catalogue is a vaporwave/dreampunk label started in 2014 by British artist HKE and originally in collaboration with t e l e p a t h テレパシー能力者. In its early years, Dream Catalogue was widely regarded as the preeminent vaporwave label and has released work by some of the genre's most popular artists of the time, including t e l e p a t h テレパシー能力者, death's dynamic shroud, and VAPERROR among others. At various points in its history, the label has undergone changes in direction and style. As of 2020, HKE (and by extension, the label) has disassociated from the vaporwave genre and moved towards a self-described "dreampunk" style.

A significant portion of Dream Catalogue's historical discography is no longer available through the label officially, most releases being purged sometime in 2016 unbeknownst to the artists involved. Many of those releases' removals can be ascribed to copyright concerns, although stylistic reasons have been alluded to, seeing as many removed releases were sample-based. Multiple removals came from disputes between the artists and label, notably including Vaperror, Windows 98の and Hantasi. This sudden stylistic shift in the label led some to form a separate Bandcamp page titled the Dream Graveyard, preserving both the releases and original visual style of the label before the mass-removal.
