Spazzkid ‘Desire’ Cassette and Fundraiser!

Hey friends, here to let you know about our next release, which is an extra special one! We are very proud to announce that we will be releasing the incredible new Spazzkid full-length, Desire. Not only will we be doing a hand-made, limited-edition cassette run, but we have also joined forces with the producer in efforts to raise some money for his future endeavors. Already making waves with his bright and dynamic sounds, the LA transplant, Mark Redito, furthers his array of sounds with his newest album. Whether it’s the catchiness of his emotive pop melodies or his head-bob inducing beats, this album solidifies his presence in the glowing scene of genre-bending electronics.

This tape will be a part of the wonderful perks you can receive when you donate to his cause! All you got to do is head over to the fundraiser page, take a look around at all the limited-edition gifts you can receive, and decide how much you’d like to give. You’ll have the satisfaction of helping out one of our good friends and one of the most talented artists around right now. After the fundraising campaign is over (April 1st), the tape will be available for immediate purchase through Purr, but these are sure to go fast so hurry up and get your copy! If you still aren’t convinced, have a listen to the “Kokeshi Doll” single from the new album and prepare to get hooked!

love + purrs y’all

SPACE GANG: ‘Forest Mirrors’ Cassette

Hello loyal Purrers! We’ve missed you all so much. We had quite an eventful end to 2012, and a lot has been going on, as usual, but we are trucking on and have a new tape (our first of 2013!) to present to you!

Our next limited edition release comes courtesy of the heavenly, beat-weaving mastery of Space Gang. We are so happy to have the privilege of putting out his amazing Forest Mirrors EP. A six-track album that pulls samples from the wide-lens spectrum of the sonic universe. Transforming them into soulful, introspective journeys of the heart and mind.

A run of 50 will officially be out next Monday, February 4th. Reserve your copy now here!

Tours ‘Okay’ Cassette

It is with short notice, but extreme excitement, that we announce our new release with our good friend Dylan Sieh, also known as Tours. We are thrilled to be working with him again after we put out his Stay EP on cassette about a year ago. He will also be the first artist we’ve ever worked with twice, which is awesome since he was an integral part of Purr Tapes getting off the ground, bringing this whole thing full circle in just a year.

His newest collection of songs is called Okay, and after seeing digital release just yesterday with the fresh crew over at Young Latitudes, will be dropping this cassette immediately! Okay is a continuation of his unique approach to chilled-out electronic beats. 4 pulsating tracks that stand on the fringe of modern dance music while still retaining a hazy and mysterious allure. Order here now!
