Of all the different artists and albums that seemingly drop each and every day, Waterfront Dining is one the more consistent and quality acts out there today. If you’re looking for classic Vaporwave sounds then this is a perfect place to start.
The overwhelming awesomeness of the amount of music waiting to be discovered, at times, can be too much for any one person. Even in the smaller independent genres of experimental electronic music and vaporwave, it can be exhausting. What is the solution?
My Pet Flamingo and TimeSlave Recordings are for my money, the premier labels out there today for Vaporwave, Future Funk and Synthwave music. There are a lot of labels out there doing what Jay and Enzo do, but simply put – no one does it better.
FM Skyline, real name Pete Curry, is an Electronic, Vaporwave and Pop/Synth artist who has been in the game for several years now. In that time, he’s released a few studio albums, some of which are absolutely essential to any Vapor/Synth collection.

Picture this…it’s three o’clock in the morning. You’re half asleep. The light radiating forth from the TV is flickering off the walls, shadows caressing your half-open eyelids.

Amidst the chaos, you can just make out the distant chattering of smile-laden infomercial stars, peddling the latest and greatest soon-to-be dumpster fodder: “Billy Mays here, with Oxi-Clean!”
