about

More music from worn and warped tapes that are 22 years old! These cassettes have suffered every abused that you can imagine and are most of the time saturated and overdriven. So needless to say that all this distortion and warping have rendered some of theses recordings almost unlistenable. There are better quality versions of some of these tracks resting somewhere, but I don't think I will ever be able to transfer them from the DAT tapes they are sleeping on. All that being said, they are free and only shared for their curiosity value. These were all made at the beginning of the 90's and, but for a few exceptions, contains all the TR-909, 808, TB-303, MC-202, MS-20, break beat drum loops, movie dialogue cheesy sample bits and the redundant ambient nature FX that will never fail to certify their authenticity as early rave-tronica soundtracks. It's almost everything I've done during these years that I have not already shared. Raver's hats and whistles not included.
