The alias of Dominic Treviño, Mr. Pidge falls under the category of vaporwave, I think. Basically, ’90s pop music chopped and screwed – slowed down and drowned. Think DJ Screw meets Amy Grant. Interestingly, Mr. Pidge uses sources as far-flung from Magic 105.3’s airwaves as Duke Ellington’s “In a Sentimental Mood,” which gives the old standard a smoky, bluesy vibe not present in the original versions. Voodoo Boogaloo slink down the same trash-strewn alleyway as fellow nighttime sonic savants Portishead, when they’re not rapping over strobe-light beats – the perfect soundtrack to laser tag on molly. With Saturn Skies.
