congealedmeat This is quite an interesting listen. I especially enjoy the chiptune sounds of "Platinum Boy's Space Adventure", it sounds like a Sega game from the 90's. The rest of the album is great as well, with a variety of genres exemplifying the best of video game music.

This is right up there with the Streets of Rage soundtrack for me. Top notch. Favorite track: Platinum Boy's Space Adventure - プラチナボーイのスペースアドベンチャー  Demo Title Screen 1993.

Dave T. An unusual release for Dream Catalogue, there's a strange combination of chiptune and lounge music clashing around that honestly makes this a special listen. Try it out for yourself~ Favorite track: Palace Hotel Tokyo: スージングミスト「Soothing Mist」- Spa Tape Compilation 2000.

In mid-2014, an unknown Japanese composer by the name of Kobayashi Yamato made a small splash in the vaporwave scene when he released his album ‘快い亡霊 OST’ - a lost soundtrack composed for an unreleased Dreamcast game called ‘Pleasant Specter’ in 1998. Kobayashi mentioned in his album notes for this release that he was inspired to unveil this lost soundtrack he composed almost fifteen years beforehand after discovering vaporwave through a friend’s son.

Shortly after this, Dream Catalogue came into contact with Kobayashi and after getting to know him, discovered he had much more unheard and rare music in a freelance career spanning two decades. We proposed the idea of releasing a compilation of some of his various earlier works in order to bring more of this old music to a new audience for the first time, which he gladly accepted and quickly began rooting through his archives for some of his best material, old video game compositions, TV jingles and even spa music - some of which has never even been released.

While this is not technically a vaporwave album, Kobayashi's fascination with vaporwave and the success of his Pleasant Specter OST amongst vaporwave fans has seen him become one of the more extraordinary artists to come to prominence in 2014. What Kobayashi's intention is with this music and his 'Pleasant Specter' is to hopefully inspire a generation of young new producers to sample his work, chop and screw them in classic vaporwave fashion and bring them a new sense of life under the vaporwave banner.
