CINDYS TAPES is a relatively newish record label from jolly old France. They’ve been on my radar since their first tape, and with each subsequent release, they have only furthered their fine curation of underground beat/collage producers with limited runs of cassettes and ultra-modern digital options. And yes, while another label focusing on beat-tapes may sound trite, CINDYS TAPES have something truly special going on. Trust me on that.

Upon request, the boys divvied up an exquisite mix of nuanced slappers and bangers alike, all for your unique listening pleasure. Featuring a few CINDYS TAPES alumni, as well as various other underground/above-ground heads, seep right into its noddy comfort and zone on out.
