Three must-have cassette tape releases of 2016

Another year is coming to an end, so it's time to look back and celebrate some of the great music that came out of this city of ours in 2016. This time we decided to focus on cassette tape releases. Here we go, in no particular order:


SO​.​Crates - Static Methods EP

No one vibes like Skomes and Cazeaux O.S.L.O. And if you, like us, are still coming to terms with Cazeaux O.S.L.O's temporary relocation to Adelaide, you can use this tape to bridge the gap. If you would like a cassette copy of this, you're only remaining chance is to find a copy in a record store. Then again, you can always grab a digital copy, of course.

Sacrifice - Silentjay X Jace XL

This little EP was dubbed a classic as soon as it came out. All official links to the cassette version seem to have vanished, so if you're after a copy still, this is probably your best bet: https://www.discogs.com/Silentjay-x-Jace-XL-Sacrifice/release/7943292.

Celebrities Doing Thaangs - Brother Mynor

We slept way too long on this guy. This tape was actually releases through a Canadian label Inner Ocean Records, where you can still grab a copy of it if.
