Vaporwave originated as an Internet-birthed style loosely derived from the work of hypnagogic pop artists such as Ariel Pink and James Ferraro. Daniel Lopatin's 2010 release Chuck Person's Eccojams Vol. 1, Ferraro's Far Side Virtual and Vektroid's Floral Shoppe (released under the alias "Macintosh Plus") are often credited for sparking the beginning and development of the trend, as well as solidifying it as a genre. Vaporwave found wider appeal in 2012, with the release of Blank Banshee's debut album Blank Banshee 0, which introduced his signature fusion style of vaporwave's sampling techniques and trap music known as vaportrap. Saint Pepsi's 2013 album Hit Vibes pioneered the future funk subgenre, and was carried on by artists such as Yung Bae in 2014.
