* twenty one little tape deck ghosts *


Here is a mix of some of my favourite tracks over the last years released only on tape on labels like night city, the tapeworm, autotune the world, curly cassettes, sun ark, carpi or the curatorial club. Some of the artists like dirty beaches or the microphones released their first album via tape before they got more known but still there are treasures to be found on these early releases.

The first half are mostly quiet, ambient tunes, the second part is more psychedlic and song-orientated. The title is taken from the first microphones tape called “tests” with a song called “tape deck ghosts” featured here as well.
