Artist Spotlight: Pye Corner Audio Transcription Services

If you’re anything like me, you spend your nights wondering just how you’re going to get your hands on all the juicy electronic music packed onto a limited number of old, likely damaged cassettes. I mean, where’s the justice in it all? A huge swathe of the best musical decades isolated from our filesharing utopia because no one thought that maybe storing the only copy of your works on a flimsy reel of tape was a bad idea. Perhaps this worries you or, like me, makes you violently angry and places you at risk of multiple panic attacks.

Well panic no more! A man going by the name of “The Head Technician” has come to the conclusion that the best use of his time is to seek out, trawl through and begin the long process of transferring old cassettes to digital format. The cream of the crop are then uploaded in volumes to Bandcamp, where they can be streamed or purchased at your leisure. Tracks usually revolve around house, techno, idm and ambient; echoing the glory days of 80/90's electronic music. 

The 3rd Volume was released on the 23rd of January, 2012, and can be found here.
