TAPEFEED // LIVE

This ever-evolving sound comes as the pinnacle of years of musical experience: Alessandro’s as a music and art director, event organiser and avid music listener, and Rick’s as a drummer in rock bands as well as his studies in production. Their first vinyl release in 2017 “Dawn on The Eclipse” on Metempsychosis Records including a Vril remix kickstarted a year that launched Tapefeed on the international scene with bookings like Printworks (London) Tresor and About Blank (Berlin) as well as Gem Fest (Georgia) and Elsewhere in New York City.
