A Sentimental Mixtape

Cassette design for the very first mixtape from Belgian tape-label Sentimental. For a DIY feel we chose for a risoprinted and hand-folded sleeve design.

A sentimental Mixtape #1 offers a glimpse into the more gloomy and undervalued sounds of the Belgian music scene at this point in time, without ever wanting to be exhaustive. Born from the label's desire to bring together the music they love and to find a common ground in their distinctiveness, this compilation presents a snapshot of artists that dare scan the boundaries and never compromise. The thirteen tracks, all created in different contexts by artists who may or may not know each other, explore a wide array of styles, yet encounter one another in their boldness and individuality. Building on repetition, noise and unusual sounds, the compilation embraces longstanding musical conventions, but never eschews the experiment.
