Newspaper

Tape-Echo publication - Issue one After a long time in the making the first issue of the Tape-Echo publication is here: a 32 page, full colour, quarter fold newspaper filled with interviews and features on the most relevant happenings in underground electronic music. The whole Tape-Echo project was based on a love of underground music, DIY culture and fanzines, this publication is the physical manifestation of our online work. The slower pace of the print world gives us the time to compile well researched, informative and interesting features with bespoke photography and artwork. Everything in the publication has been commissioned especially for the issue, from the words to the photographs to the design and packaging. Issue one contains interviews and features with - Dubloaded - One of the most influential nights in Bristol has decided to call it a day after 3 years in its current guise. Tape-Echo talks to Pinch & Peverelist to find out their reasons for stopping the night, get their take on the current state of 'Dubstep', and finally, what the two of them have planned next. Supported by photographs taken by Alex Digard over a 3 year period, documenting the night through the years. Stardelta - Admit it, you've always wanted to start your own record label.
