Hypnotic fuzz fills your mind as you awaken— protracted cascades of synthetic drones and warbling beats fill your consciousness as you transcend into this new reality. Mysteriously vast and luscious, the landscape of the new world stretches lazily on before you… hued by its own discordant lighting— inviting you deeper into its grasp. Adjusting your stance, the grip upon your blade tightens as you set forth into the unknown. An infinity of possibilities lie ahead, ones ripe with knowledge, XP, and the powers that only a hero could conquer. —Awaken— your journey begins now!
Available again on vinyl, the long-awaited repress of R23X’s experimentally profound debut album OST(1).rar is here to whisk you away on a unique lo-fi sampling vaporwave journey. Pressed on Caerulean Starburst vinyl, this second edition of OST(1).rar vinyl features a brand new OBI strip designed by Marc Junker (R23X) and comes housed in an elegant jacket emblazoned with stunning holographic foil-stamped artwork by Jason Cryer!
With a unique blend of sampling/mixing, R23X’s enrapturing tones, experimental sound, and playfulness are as profound as they are groundbreaking. Giving rise to the ever-expanding Video Game-adjacent Vaporwave movement, R23X’s emergent compositional style has captivated fans online and has been subsequently praised in the press. With a creative implementation of lo-fi VHS mastering, R23X blends the lines between nostalgia and new-age luster.
This release also features the bonus track 𝐞𝐯𝐢𝐥 𝐩𝐥𝐨𝐭 𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐨𝐥𝐨𝐠𝐮𝐞 (𝟏) [𝐁𝐨𝐧𝐮𝐬 𝐓𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐤] as well as a remix of「 d r y s u m m e r 」by Equip (100% Electronica).
