What is LOA2K?

The Library Of Alexandria 2000 [ LOA2K ] is an ongoing archival effort for preserving deleted and inaccessible vaporwave music, so that it may be available to stream and download for generations to come.

What do you mean by "inaccessible"?

Why would an album become inaccessible?

There are many possible reasons. For example, an album can get removed because of a copyright strike over uncleared audio samples, or because the artist's account got terminated, or because the artist simply wants it removed.
