Hit Vibes is an album by SAINT PEPSI. The album is one of the most recognizable in the genre and is often credited as a classic regarding the "future funk" vaporwave style. It was published to KEATS//COLLECTIVE, and received a cassette release through Sunup Recordings. The album was pressed on vinyl via promo pressings through Carpark Records, with later pressings being sold during 100% ElectroniCON. In 2019, SAINT PEPSI uploaded the vinyl mastering to his Bandcamp page.
The remastered release on SAINT PEPSI's Bandcamp page has slightly different track durations for Have Faith and Better as there is no longer a cross-fade between those two tracks.
Remastered for limited pressing of vinyl release. This is the remastered version.
In the year since Hit Vibes' initial digital release, ever-productive Ryan DeRobertis has covered exceptional creative ground, transitioning from loose, sample- and loop-based experimentation to honed, instrument-based pop songwriting, and the emotional funk music contained on this tape represents perhaps the peak of his sample-heavy material.
Across Hit Vibes' 13 tracks, you will encounter: overwhelmingly positive music for dancing, the somber and contemplative feelings of traditional eccojam, David Spade, and more!
So, ladies and gentlemen, won't you please come along, and we'll cruise on down to Saint Pepsi's virtual Studio 54, riding high all the while on his Hit Vibes.
