A New Memory Tapes mix // Slaughtered
In the latest of Modular Records’ Modcast series, Memory Tapes figurehead Dayve Hawk took a different approach to the project, which typically entails an artist arranging a mixtape using other people’s tracks. Instead, his Modcast contains 23 minutes of New Memory Tapes music, and the mix is called “Slaughtered.” Memory Tapes are Featured in the June and July Mixtapes.
Dayve explains the decision:
I find I listen to mixtapes more than albums a lot of the time, so I wanted to make a new record in the form of a mixtape instead of a single or EP etc. It’s all new, original Memory Tapes stuff just put together in the form of an extended mix. I thought the Modcast would be a cool way to make it available to people quickly and for free.
If you’re just getting into Hawke/Tapes – start the track at the 11- or 14-minute mark to get the “meat” of the song. I won’t judge you.
