Tape Exchange Apr. 2021

Bravest of listeners! Lend me your… eyes! April has come and gone and we went and did the damn thing! It was truly an exciting month for us here at the CTEP. Our mix was unusual as usual! And our beloved exchangers rose to the occasion most triumphantly! Enough of the pleasantries, let’s get down to business!


This month we received another mega-submission from our good friend and fellow psycho out in MO. We’ve got some incredible mixing going on here; the good, the bad (not really), the ugly, the what the hell is this!? We can’t get enough! We thought this tape Off-Brand Star Wars was especially RAD! Chicken in the Corn?! Wicked Sick say we!

CTEP’s Contribution:

In case you needed reminding: we don’t ‘make’ these tapes… LIFE does! We simply keep our ears open and the songs come find us! Sometimes they makes sense and sometimes they don’t. I suppose mix tapes are a lot like life in that way. At any rate, enough philosophizing, click the link below, and jam out to some killer cuts!

Here’s a link to a complete Spotify playlist!
