**Hand-numbered edition of 60** One of the most elusive units of recent years, Itinerant Dubs do it right with their first physical mixtape, following a cracking podcast for Juno Plus earlier in 2014. For those new to the group; they've slipped out four 12"s and one 7" to date, each running roughshod dub over jungle, techno, booty and madder styles with an array of vintage hardware and FX. 'ID Tape#1' features slivers of each release plus a portion from the upcoming remixes 12" from DJ Stingray and Mr. G mixed rub-a-dub style into a heaving mass of smoked out, riddim-driven abstraction.… Read more

Cat. Number: FTR202CS

Wayward, lowest-fi avant synth-pop from Guerilla Toss's Kassie Carlson aka Jane La Onde on Feeding Tube Records. 'Elegance' was last spotted on the B-side of a vinyl split with Size Queen (FTR180) and now appears as stand alone cassette sporting new artwork and spooling seven perky shots of knowingly naif pop powered by casio melodies and plinky pulses. It's very enjoyable if you're into her more manic group, Guerilla Toss, or the likes of Glasgow's Happy Meals and LAPS.
