No Escape Episode 1 - Tape Punk



No Escape is an 11 part mixtape series we're starting! Each episode focuses on a different facet of the many-headed beast that defends the magical cave hiding the true identity of experimental music: it's a regular blast and a half! This first episode explores the use of sampling in underground "pop" since the 1970's, from funky post-punky pioneers to artsy fartsy samplechampions to hip hop selectors and mashup disc jockeys. Of course, Jason Forrest brings the whole mix full circle.
