Increased craving for music on cassette tape

At the weekend it went to buda, at just over 4,000 cassette tapes on the auction site. It is clear most of the officially released music. The range is greatest in punk and dance bands. But also jazz and pop is high, according to the Transmitted media contact Sofia Hagelin.

"We see a clear trend that the cassettes have grown," she says to TT.

Between the first quarter of 2017 and 2018, the increase was eight per cent, compared with 48 percent from 2018 to 2019 the same period.

Mostly sell vinyl and cd, but last year went to cassettes on stenkakor.

A still inplastad cassette with Kent's album ”Really” (1996) sold for 19.800 sek 2017. It is the most expensive on the Transmitted kassettopplista, where otherwise several rarities with Eddie is around 4,000–5,000 Swedish kronor.

This was the more backward-looking aspect of the burgeoning kassettkulturen.

even to be a bright future, where both artists as a listener is driving a growing demand – which may kassettbandsfabriker in the united states and France, working for high pressure.

National Audio Company in Springfield in the us state of Missouri has been around for 50 years. Around the turn of the century had the cd reached a total hegemony in the music production. National Audio had to saddle up and survived thanks to the book cartridges remained popular.

Ceo Steve Tap, who founded the company together with his dad, sums up the business idea that ”stubbornness and stupidity”.

It has paid for itself.

Around 2005 noticed the Tap to the pendulum began to swing back. Bands such as Pearl Jam and The Smashing Pumpkins heard of for jubileumsutgåvor on the cassette tape.

"It convinced major record labels that there was still life in the cartridge musikmedium," he says to the AFP news agency.

then bought the National Audio up old equipment from the eliminated manufacturers in order to meet the demand. In the last year, the company produced 18 million cassettes. In the customer base is 3.500 label globally, according to Tap.

of Course there is the sale of new kassettalbum far from glansdagarnas notes. In the united states were sold 246 million kassettalbum 1994, according to Nielsen Music.

But when the great artists such as Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber release new music on a cassette, the trend can only go in one direction, consider the Tap:

– As an old fogy I do not want to imagine a world without analog music.

His colleague at the French less kassettproducenten Mulann, Jean-Luc Renou, agree with.

" Pleasure is the goal. The get cassettes or vinyl, " he says to AFP.

Mulann is the first company in two decades in France as given on kassettillverkning.

skivbutiken Feedback, and the label Feedback Rekords on Möllan in Malmö, sweden.

"something has happened," he said about the cartridge that musikmedium.

I thought that bigger companies would bite and release cassettes.

As an example, he mentions a re-release this year of Metallica's first demo recording.

more and more smaller companies gives out new music on cassette, as well as the bands themselves. In the fall, released hiphopstjärnan Timbuktu and his band Damn! ”Love playlist” on analog cassette.

Not for ljudkvalitetens sake, but there is a certain sense with the sound of a cartridge. In addition, we need something physical to hold in your hand sometimes, " answers Dennis Lood, which also links the kassettvurmen to collecting and fanzineutgivning become more in vogue.

as Sofia Hagelin on Ebay believe that the recent increased interest in vinyl records has been a driving force for kassettbandens renaissance.

And it is not just nostalgikerna who asks, but also young new listeners, " she says.

" I think there is a trend of the times that people like to consume music in a more trankilt (quiet) way. Perhaps as a backlash to all Spotifylyssnande.

True, identifying a comeback for the so-romanticised blandbanden be at the time. Personally ornate kassettomslag with songs that took hours to get it in the right order, on an a - or B-side, for a single thought-out receiver – not a ihopvispad masspridd playlist on a digital strömningstjänst.
