Glitch Devil Edit’s

Glitch Devil was created because I wanted to be able to visualize the music that’s out there. Music creates stories, and I can edit videos using older movies or animes from around the web (Is that still a thing?) I love bringing what I’ve imagined to life and grasping the viewer’s attention with the vibes of the different elements. The most rewarding part is when everything fits perfectly like a puzzle, and we’re able to see a glitchy short story. This isn’t something I do for a profit. I want to inspire people and support musicians out there and hope they never stop believing in themselves.

BootyWizardAV

Hailing from Los Angeles, California, David aka The Booty Wizard takes an analog approach to his visuals. Utilizing over 8 VCRs, every piece of source material he works with is first put on to physical tape. After processing the footage through other physical/analog devices, the result are visuals that look like they came from a vhs tape left in a donated VCR from goodwill.

Self

Arguably one of the most prolific visual artists in the vaporwave scene, touching nearly ever single livestreaming vapor / future funk event in 2020, they are a true master of their craft, and continue
to push the envelope for the boundless
possibilities of vaporwave visual art.

..But seriously, vaporwave wouldn’t exist without the incredible visual art now so seamlessly tied hand in hand with the music. When you see “Self”, that means the musician prepared the visual video edit for their set themselves, as well as the music.

GBANAS92

After ravenously listening to as much vaporwave as he possibly could for years, gbanas92 eventually decided to do something with all that passion, contributing a number of articles to Private Suite Magazine before its unfortunate closure.

This led to his joining up with the Utopia District team, to continue to writing about vaporwave about as much as humanly possible. Reviews, news, and anything in between. When he’s not listening to vaporwave, something that happens admittedly rarely, he is probably playing PlayStation way more than he should. Either that or watching hockey.
