This is my first live mix, I used a single Vestax portable turntable and an old Coomber tape deck and just alternated between the two! Its the first time I've tried using this set up so bare with me.

Tape Cassettes have gotten more and more popular over the last few years in various underground scenes and you can see why; they fulfill an urge for something physical in reaction to the endless click-download-repeat process of file-sharing, which clogs up all our hard drives with immaterial mp3s. The tape cassette, a chunky, clumsy medium, with all its grainy textures and surface noises, is one to be savored, it is a fetish item for the 21st century!

I hope you enjoy this short mix, which has ironically been recorded and converted to mp3! There's some real rare gems to be found!



Oh snap, there was a playback error!
