In what seems to be an annual tradition at this point, I have once again come to blows with the vaporwave cultists. This time over a tweet I made about how one vaporwave label has hijacked a certain Dream Catalogue album for vinyl release behind our backs. In this episode I do a line by line analysis of a post from one member of the cult, Incarta, who posted a long, incoherent rant against me in defence of his beloved genre.
A recent trend has seen the idea that artists and labels in music declaring themselves 'beyond genre or categorisation', but HKE asks artists to consider the full extent of this subject before making such declarations.
The most controversial artist to burst onto the vaporwave scene in years, HKE manages to snag an interview with the enigmatic Black Banshee and finds out what the inspiration is behind his dark, menacing work.
HKE discusses his thoughts on the recent breakout of NFTs and the impact of crypto and blockchain tech such as Ethereum on music and art, as well as upcoming blockchain-powered platforms such as Audius.
