About

With new technological advancements, fashion trends, and music genres being created at a blistering pace, the past has become an amalgam of what we want it to be. The past is forgotten and shall always be remembered to be forgotten. It exists only as a reminder of the fact that we exist. Anyone can tell stories of the past, but only a few can hear them. Private Suite Magazine is for those who want to to remember the past, whether it be their own or someone else’s.

Private Suite is a community project. Our magazine consists of all things vaporwave — reviews, art, interviews, articles and discussions. Private Suite dives deep into the never-ending ocean of vaporwave content to bring the highest quality work to our readers.

Private Suite is editorially independent, with a goal of growing the vaporwave scene as a whole, and being a positive force within the community. All of us are volunteers, and while we do strive to meet our self-imposed deadlines, there may be delays so we can deliver the best product possible. Our volunteers are responsible for their own content - be it copyright clearance, creative commons attributions, etc. PSM is not liable for our content creators' actions. If you see any of your content used in our products without your consent, please let us know at outreach@privatesuitemag.com and we will work with you to resolve the concern.

Big boss. Younger than you but also more epic. I fix old video game consoles for fun and wear lots of polos. I plan to take over the world and the rest of the universe with the Private Suite staff. But that's next month, we have to finish working on this issue first.

EinTheMidle

20 years old, native from Spain. Born with a computer between hands and obsessed with technology. In my eagerness to know the origin of things, I ended up in love with retro culture and analogical machines. I try to learn, listen and play new things everyday, trying to make sense of my life. I do graphic design and on occasion, write, for Private Suite. And yes, I write middle with one d on purpose.

Content review. A sometimes game writer, sometimes Vaporwave writer from Vermont. Absolutely love the Vaporwave scene (especially Mallsoft!) and it turns out I like collecting cassettes a lot more than I ever imagined I would. A lot more. Also a diehard Colorado Avalanche fan. I live and breathe hockey almost as much as vaporwave.
