DECAYCAST #025 Guest Mix : Strategic Tape Reserve “STR Cologne Mix”

DECAYCAST #025 Guest Mix : Strategic Tape Reserve

We asked our friends at  Strategic Tape Reserve to bust off a mix for us for these wild times and here’s what they came up with. Make sure to check out their bandcamp and website linked below.  from the label.

“I moved to Cologne in 2012 and started Strategic Tape Reserve shortly after that. I honestly didn’t love the city when I first got here, but I think it’s the kind of place that only reveals itself over time – things to explore and appreciate that aren’t obvious at first, and it feels like home now. The tracks on this mix are all from Cologne – either by people for Cologne, or people from elsewhere but recorded in Cologne, or both. It’s not intended to be any kind of definitive Cologne survey – it’s mostly what was on my hard drive – but hopefully it presents a varied, disorienting, unrefined world that, geographically and sonically, STR might sit within.”

DECAYCAST #47: DISKOTEKA – Soviet Disco, New Wave and Folk Pop mixtape by Big Debbie

DECAYCAST #47: DISKOTEKA – Soviet Disco, New Wave and Folk pop mixtape by Big Debbie. 
2019-04-12 16.40.57 (1)
We’ve  strayed farther and farther into reviews but  Decaycast started as a pirate radio show / radio collages so this guest mix from Big Debbie takes it back to the roots with this  wild guest mix for Decaycast, blending new beat, disco proto punk, and so much more with some seriously cryptic gems hiddin within, take a  deep listen and check out Big Debbie’s newest LP “Ab Ra Ca Deb Ra” out last Nov on Ratskin. Click the cover to listen and read a statement below on the mix from Debbie themself!
“Most of the music on here was officially State sponsored, but couple tracks were underground classics. From Eastern Europe to Central Asia, the songs would practically spread overnight, due to the rapid tape trade culture. Some of these jams I actually grew up with.  They were the mainstream hits, I remember hearing coming out of the crackling, night train radio, as you drifted to sleep. Some of them you had to go out of your way to get. By the late 80’s the music piracy was more out in the open. I used to get my music, from the guy at the grocery store. He had a little set up in the corner that consisted of a chair, some blank tapes and a Boombox.The bootlegger usually had a  “D.I.Y” encyclopedia as well, that you could sift through. Everything from disco and smooth jazz, to punk and death medal. You pointed to what you wanted and the next day he usually had a dubbed copy ready for you. However, to tell the truth, most of these gems I discovered recently through youtube, just in the past year. Hope you enjoy them, at least as half, as much, as me!”
