Boston-based cassette label HEY WTF Records present a 16-track love-themed compilation.
Old music formats aren’t dying out in the way experts had anticipated. Vinyl sales continue to increase while there’s a healthy community of underground cassette labels keeping the reels turning. HEY WTF Records are based out of Boston and they are part of this cassette culture. Last month, they dropped a compilation called Love Letter, featuring 16 tracks from 16 rappers/producers all in the name of love. Some of the names include the UK’s Handbook and Vanilla, Beat Gates, Amin PaYnE and dil withers. You can cop the cassette for $5, which comes with the download or just download it for free. But after all that talk of cassettes, why not grab a physical copy?
