Mexican Cassette Culture Electronica 1976-82 (6Lp-Box)

Label: Vinyl-On-Demand

Format:

Genre: Electronic

Out of stock

The new Vinyl on Demand Mexican Cassette Culture box set offers a flashback to what was perhaps the greatest musical era and some of the most original music produced in the late 1970’s to mid 1980’s.

This Box covers many of those experimental artists from Mexico such as Aristeo, Via Lactea & Carlos Alvarado, Hilozoizmo, Decibel, Oxomaxoma with Arturo Romo & Jose Alvarez & Miguel A. Ruiz and Voldarepet with Arturo Meza, Juan Wolfang Cruz and Marco A. Godinez.

This kind of music opened a door to an incredible new chapter for many people in the music-scene; One of those discovering the outstanding and amazing Experimental Music from Mexico as early as 1979 has been Archie Patterson of Eurock-Magazine who started to distribute experimental music primarily released on Cassettes which he had also covered and written about in his magazine established in 1973. At that time, visitors from south of the border came to LA bringing him and a few others music-cassettes and LPs, shortly after coming to buy music and take it back to their record stores in Mexico City. A musical link was created that still exists today. Listeners of Experimental & Electronic Music incl. VOD itself would probably never have heard about such true hidden treasures released on this Box without such protagonistic networking, distribution and promotion back then. Today there still is nothing that sounds like what you'll hear when listening to the sounds on these long lost cassette artifacts. In fact, the music never sounded better after to the excellent sonic restoration done by Jos Smolders of Earlabs.
