Shatterfoil Industries

During the early years of vaporwave, the sound of VHS Pop had not been fully fleshed out, before artists like Video 2000 would pioneer its concepts and have it evolved by people such as Epson in the later years. At the same time that this was being originally created, SYLLABUS had already been hard at work at putting their own spin on the highly digitized, highly bitcrushed texture that the style was known for.

Elements of pop, laid back beach lounging music, and similarly cleanly produced genres were given a sprucing up with a sound that perfect evokes the feeling of summer. Rough, blown out, and energetic, "July" was a prime example of what could be done with just the mastering approach to vaporwave albums, without even speaking of the well-made chopping work to its samples.

A decade later, and two years after the release of the 8th anniversary edition, it still stands as a tenet upon which modern VHS Pop's sound is built off of and remains supremely strong as a point in the artist's career. To celebrate the occasion, we have invited VHS Pop legends EPPSSONN and channel select on to provide their remixes to this classic work, as well as contributions by strip_silence and CASINO.

Along with that, SYLLABUS themself has contributed one final track to the album, to close it out after so many years of it standing as standing tall. Slow, ambient, and moving, it's a perfect way to celebrate how far they and their work have come.
