After a while, I started experimenting with making my own cassettes; making mixtapes, designing covers and labels. Around that time, I had been floating around the idea of starting my own label, and this seemed like the perfect first release. So, I told him I'd be down to make tapes for them and I decided to do a run of which I would record, assemble, and then number with Sharpie. That's been the formula ever since.
I modeled the way I would operate and make the music available online off of tape labels I admired. Since releasing that record in the summer of , I've put out almost 20 tapes with over a dozen different artists.
Really though, I think that why I got into this really boils down to the fact that when I came to music, I just didn't want to just be a consumer or a passive collector. I didn't play any instruments or make music, but I wanted to get involved with the music scene and be a creator. What do you feel distinguishes Third Floor Tapes from other cassette-making brands?
There are hundreds of cassette based "micro-labels" out there, a tag that I might fall under, but I feel that my modus operandi with Third Floor Tapes is what sets it apart from other labels. Although I make tapes in very small and typically hand-made runs, the scope of my vision is much wider than that. What I want to do Third Floor Tapes goes beyond that of a label. I'm growing it as something of a lifestyle; a community thats made up of artists that I encounter, collaborate with, and join together under one roof.
Most artists on the Third Floor roster I consider to be my friends and I chill with in real life, at shows, in Philly, or wherever they're from. About This Item.
