While researching the local music scene in Ghana on a Fulbright scholarship, Brian discovered the regional cassette tape merchants. Upon listening and realizing that the music was often unlike anything else going in the globe, he decided to put some of the songs up on a blog he eloquently dubbed Awesome Tapes From Africa. Thus began the eternal quest for strange, and quite often incredible African cassettes. Since then, the blog has developed a cult following, and Shimkovitz often finds himself DJing his collection at parties all over the globe. And he often DJ's using only cassette decks.
