Good Morning Tapes

Regular price

Added to your cart!

The first cassette from man like Tapes in 10 years!

Worth the wait, no doubt.

Having taken many turns and twists since the early days on Jahtari, stretching legs and flexxing in ravier settings with Lukid as Rezzett, touring with Superstar & Star, unearthing lost off-side digital dancehall gems, etc etc... Tapes now comes through with a 30ish minute session for Good Morning Tapes.
Informed by rare imported asian drone & drum machines, shangaan-esque polyrhythms, Tapes's dancehall-indebted bogle, the rhythmic freshness and a sense for harmonic niceness, the whole thing sounds very vibey first and foremost... Creatively enhanced by hours spent on the likes of final fantasy, and time spent reflecting with the head in the speaker box... surely?

It's a big listen, all feels very alive and kicking... Especially sweet and nice on the ears for the first half, but not in a boring-ambient kinda way - it's a melody-driven affair full of sonic interest.
As we get closer to Side 2, there's some meditative screwface and gunfinger stylin' going on too, the overdriven spiritual drones are a great example.

Fill up with your favourite cuppa and let this one soak over you.
It's good for you.

Served in a very very nice design, and in limited edition (sold out in most places already!)
