Ventla - rather ochame actually
i feel like shouting out underrated producers (at least underrated to the tumblr scene) because i have no witty stuff to put out. hmph.
i’ve explained it once before, but i love ventla to death. he’s one of those, i guess what people call “fringewave” artists, that are usually categorized as vaporwave but aren’t (ie: blank banshee). as for ventla, i have no clue how he was categorized as vaporwave, maybe he was big around the same time vaporwave did, but he isn’t really vaporwave in the slightest. on his soundcloud, he has such a big list of instruments he uses in his material it’s crazy, from stuff like old synthesizers to hello kitty toy pianos. i haven’t listened to all of his material, so i’m not sure if he has sampled other things before, but not from the seven-or-so albums i’ve heard from him so far.
his thing is that he plans on releasing 100 albums for the internet to enjoy for free, which i think is awesome. he started in 2010, and he’s a quarter of the way there, releasing 26(?) just a week or two ago. it was limited to 50 downloads, so i unfortunately didn’t get it in time.
auditory phantom is my favorite album of his, and very well possibly one of my favorite albums ever at this point. this is the first song off of it (out of ten songs, about 23 minutes long), but i recommend taking my word for it and downloading the whole thing, oh my goodness.
