101 Cassette Labels

hey ceci,

i should have prefaced my comment by saying how great this post is -- so much to explore here. didn't mean to be negative. i totally get that this is about a pretty specific phenomenon of indie/experimental labels that are choosing to stick with cassettes in the digital era. i just felt the intro, where you set the context for how cassettes have been embraced by music makers operating outside of the mainstream over the years, could have mentioned mixtapes as an iconic example. they filled an interesting place -- somewhere between home studio experiments and documentation of live sets.

you can find rips on a bunch of blogs. like this one:

this site has an amazing collection of 80s mixtapes taped off pirate radio in london

and for kicks: "MixTapes" by the Nonce

in addition to awesome tapes i like this site for african cassette rips:

Also, seems weird not to mention hip hop mix tapes in this post -- usually cd or download these days but this was a huge part of cassette culture. Hank Shocklee from Public Enemy talks about how he still uses cassette dubs as a compressor effect in his digital mixes. And of course cassettes are still really popular as a format throughout Africa and Asia... definitely not just for Americans with esoteric taste!
