However, when I saw that Windows 96 released “Dated New Aesthetic” some days ago, I decided to get more comfortable for this Music Wednesday.

The tracks contain lots of references to ambient and new age music, and of course to “golden age” vaporwave. My favourite was track 5, Lightsleeper, as it alternates moments of pure chill and liquid drum n bass-esque drums, with a somewhat vaportrap ending.
