BBBeatTape Cassette and T-shirt

  • Alexander Horne

An entirely analogue process, from music production to printing and photography. 13 lo-fi tracks punched out on the weathered MPC of Norwegian producer Beatbully. Originally from Hamar in Norway, home to black metal and the remains of a very old medieval cathedral (Domkirkeruinene på Hamar, 1124), Beatbully is co-founder of Dødpop Records and was a leading figure in the Scandinavian skweee scene. The background image on the tape is from the cathedral remains and the photograph was originally taken by Anders Beer Wilse in 1902. The photo and illustrations by Efrain Vivas were made into magnesium clichés (plates) and printed at Letterpress Amsterdam with the guidance of Thomas Gravemaker. The original Domkirkeruinene image was sourced from the Norsk Folk Museum. All 100 of the cassettes are hand signed and stamped and the translucent blue shell is made from recycled materials. The t-shirts are unisex fit and made from certified organic and vegan cotton. We tried to be conscious of what we made having the least environmental impact.
