Hey, I thought you all would enjoy the genre known as Vaporwave. It's basically a genre dedicated to making you feel like you are listening to it on a cassette, either in the 80s or 90s or in the distant future. It uses heavy sampling of 80s funk, pop music, and elevator music slowed down and edited. It's generally mixed with 80s and 90s-esque visuals. Some use heavier sampling than others, but it all stays pretty much the same that it uses sampling (except for a few cases). It's essentially the "underground punk" equivalent of electronic music. Thought it's much more peaceful.

 

It has multiple sub-genres like Future Funk and Mallsoft. I think it's something you guys would really enjoy listening too. 

 

Here's some links to some albums to show you what I mean.
