MontrĂ©al producer AsaĂ«l Robitaille, aka Bataille Solaire, is back with his (correct me if I’m wrong) second physical release and it’s apparently on a Japanese label (or they’re displaying the price in yen for novelty’s sake… (which would make sense considering vaporwave’s fetishization of all things Japanese…)). It even comes with an OBIÂ strip and the cover photo’s woman looks like a splicer straight out of BioShock. I would call this vaporwave, but it lacks the inherent camp factor that comes with the genre’s reputation and it doesn’t have the consistency of codeine syrup. The nameÂ Jap is quite tongue-in-cheek, especially with the blatant influence of older Japanese video game soundtracks bleeding through on the title track. “DĂ©coration MolĂ©culaire,” the B-side, resembles a vaporwave track but at the same time, it isn’t – it comes off as a bit more… crisp, if you will. If you’d like to experienceÂ some nostalgia, give JapÂ a listen below via the Soundcloud streams and see what you think of it. Cheers!
