Originally from Moscow, Russia now relocated in Brooklyn, New York. Dirty Tapes has been an imprint and artist community focused on limited cassette releases since 2011. Prior to the recent rise in cassette labels, in the underground tape-driven culture it was just artists exchanging tapes, sharing music, experimenting with VHS videos, making beats at home, collage art, and creating anything else they could come up with. Dirty Tapes has now become an ongoing project, which curates an art-driven culture, and aims to be an outlet for other projects that are art-driven as well. Ultimately, their aim is to push the art of music.
