Limited edition hand made tapes of The Lamp - Sentimental Journey

from Was Ist Das?

So, I wanted to make a DJ set where I mixed ambient drone music with vocals from some of my fave music that wouldn't normally get associated with ambient drone. Then I began to think about what if I dubbed something ambient and spectral onto some old C90 cassettes containing dubs of old country LPs? Would we get that phenomenon tapers dreaded the most, ghosts of the old recording coming through?

So what was initially planned as a DJ set evolved more into an entirely sample based album, the mix of drones songs instead replaced with time stretched samples. Then dubbed to aged tapes.

The sleeves have been customized in different ways: some have collages, some have been painted over, some have unique fake tracklists..So every copy looks and sounds different.

Because of these intentions and because of the vocals all being from famous singers, this release will not be having a download version.
