While I was in travel for a work, I could take a walk and see some old electronic stores that still survive since the 80s and 90s. Luckily I could find some brand new, SONY sealed cassettes there… but I didn’t figure out what did I really bought until later… Then I came home with my trophies […]

I recently noticed that there are new labels releasing new music on cassette. Based on what I’ve learnt regarding the quality of prerecorded cassettes, I thought I’d give them a try. I also knew about a small label called Kissability, ran by Jen Long that I knew of in this video I’ve recently posted here. […]

While listening to one of the most extraordinary tapes ever made, the TDK MA-XG, I had a very bad experience: the tape was eaten by one deck of a friend that I’ve just got repaired.  I was very surprised because the deck was working perfectly, the rollers and capstans were totally clean, so I couldn’t […]

Back in the 80s I bought my first prerecorded cassettes (which in my country were called ‘musicassette‘), mainly from hard rock bands like AC/DC and a few others. I always thought that musicassettes sound well, sometimes a bit better that my own recordings with my own boombox, but not much better. My knowledge about sound […]

Yup. That’s what I found accidentally into a BASF-EMTEC CEII. Looks that some internal part got broken and caught by the very reel, causing that weird aspect. Sorry for the low quality of this photo that I took with my phone. It can be seen that it’s a plastic part from the very inside of the […]

Last year my good friend Lorenzo, aka ‘TJ Autoreverse’ ran what was probably the very first cassette party in our country, and maybe the world’s first party driven with… walkmans! If you wasn’t aware of that, you may read my post about it. Now we are in 2017 and we’re preparing a new one, this […]

I’m not sure what Philips wants to do with this but anyway it’s a nice video about cassettes. There you can see some stories: transgressive records and Kissability records (who are releasing new music in cassettes), Awesome tapes from africa and other interesting stories…

I’ve just found a nice video about cassettes. It explains what most of us who’s been usigng cassetets for years already know, but it’s cool to watch to. The lighting is definitely something to improve. If the author improves that, his videos will be much better though… Anyway I liked it.
