What started as just a bedroom affair resulted in something no one saw coming: Cassettes Won’t Listen.
CWL started in 2004 when Jason Drake picked up a microphone for the first time after years of producing Electronic inspired tracks and instrumental Hip Hop. The result: future fan favorite “Cutting Ballons.” Jason witnessed the MP3 show up on influential blogs and reach #1 on WOXY‘s Top 20, while his fan base steadily grew.
After three albums and a year of remixes for Diplo, Gold Panda and Homeboy Sandman, Cassettes Won’t Listen is back with a brand new EP, Casa. Mastered at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, the 4-song EP shows what CWL has been up to since his last release.
While CWL has grown as an artist (he’s no longer working in his bedroom, that’s for sure!), his defining characteristics — the sparse arrangements, intimate lyrics, vocal quality and use of live drums, guitars and synths — are all still there. We’re sure fans of his earlier work, such as “Paper Float,” will have Casa on repeat!
