A compilation of sorts by a very talented Bay Area collective. All of the tape proceeds are being donated to charities for the Santa Rosa/Sonoma fires and the Puerto Rico disaster relief.

Almost like film Noir, but a beat tape. Super textured with healthy production.
Kuartz - LoFi Scrolls - Kuartz
Words from the man himself - Lofi Boom Bap ripped from cassette and compiled for you dirty lofi fuckers.

We find ourselves going back to Ridgewell's projects. Jazzy smooth Lo-Fi for your soul.
Knablinz - Creative Native - Nekubi Tapes
Knablinz is a true beast with the SP 404. this project is thick with odd loops, samples, noises and FX.
DuPre - California E.P.
Beautiful little project, well done LoFi and a must grab.
DNGR - Life At Home - Scenic Rhythms
This project is a lovely sample heavy trip, great vibes and moody grooves.

Well done dusty Lo Fi grooves, perfect for a evening stroll.
Jazzsoon - '84 Doctor K - Strictly Cassette
Jazzsoon always has the dope concept albums and this one doesn't disappoint. This one is about Dwight Gooden. Fresh breaks, old sports broadcast sample, classic vibe.
Budamunk & Ill Sugi - Spirit of the Golden Age - Urbnet
Masterful release. We return to the project regularly.
Prozack Morris & Headband - Liquid Synths
The title gives away the synth'd out journey your going to experience and it doesn't disappoint.
Well textured, heavy drums and done tastefully. We think there's a part 2 in the works.
Mogillah - Coney Island
The beginning of this project sets the tone, layered with dope sample, beats hit hard with ft. by ProfLogik, Swarvy to name a few. Great listen.
Eighty9's - Maps - Humble Weight
This project has been on heavy rotation for us. Not to sample heavy, but filled with a lot of synth'd out original sounds.
Soul Chief - Adhesives - DCT001
Beautiful and graceful Boom Bap.
Djablo - The Lowfi Dojo - Move Cut Clone
"On his first solo cassette release, Djablo delivers dreamy instrumental lofi soundscapes. The A-side is like entering a childhood dream of sunny and infinite white sand beaches. The B-side (which is a cassette exclusive) is a collage of beats, strange loops and utter nonsense."
Sugar Cane Davis - BIRDS
Super chill vibes, SCD always seems to have the fresh pianos samples in his projects.
MIEKSNEAK - BOTANICAL - vbrnt.
Really well done chill Lo-Fi vibe, plus the cassette itself is a work of art.
7/15 - 7/22 (Small List of what was playing last week)
SPELLWRKS - Mind Gems 3
Dudes production is so on point with some of the most beautiful, floating, well textured sounds.
Kazumi Kaneda - Beat Notes - Inner Ocean Records
First heard this joint with Oso Blanco in the car and the both us were blown away by the quality of this release. A must have if your a true music lover.
Pacific Yew - TREES / B-Sides - Dirty Tapes
Truly a brilliant project, couldn't wait for the cassette to arrive so I played the crap out of it at work. Drove to the Sierra Nevada mountains and just had this bumping in the deck. Another must have.
