I’m about to describe a story to you before I get down to the music, I don’t really feel like the tape needs and introduction but I’m going to set the scene a bit anyway…
Around 50 weeks ago the sneaker world was anticipating the drop of one of the best shoes Nike was to drop in 2012. I was in central London with my boyfriend and as usual we were about to see what Nike Town was saying, what we saw when we got there was just nuts…
A whole 5 days before the release of the Nike Air Foamposite One Galaxy, the campout had started.
Just after this picture was taken, we spoke to the guy first in line for a pair of the foams. Art Daley was chilling in his chair rocking the Nike Air Flight One NRGs’ (I remember this because my boyfriend regrets, to this day, not picking them up when we were in NikeTown)
We picked up Art Daleys The Grape & Laney Pack tape that day and James has had it in his car ever since.
Since then we bought Art Daleys latest tape “24hr Coffee Shop”, which you can download at his bandcamp.
This is top of my current playlist at the moment, my faaaavourite track being Braided ft Mikey Smith. If you need something to kick back to after a long grind at work or Uni, then buy it. I listen to this getting ready for Uni, on my way to Uni, on my way home from Uni haha!
The 13-track tape has a vibe you can listen to anywhere, anytime, whatever mood you’re in.
The point of my story was that if you’re into trainers and if you’re into good music then I couldn’t recommend anything better for your ears.
If you take anything away from this post, make it the tape!
