An hour of soul music. Lover's holidays, spells, and summer anthems. 22 songs that mix favorites from out of print volumes of Summer Soul with never-been-compiled songs.

The A-side delves into mid-'60s Northern soul, while the B-side explores late '60s and early '70s soul.

Track listing insert, hand-stamped tape labels on white cassettes, handsome blue-backed cases...[ continued ] Barbara Lynn- Maybe We Can Slip Away

The ninth volume of our long-running Summer Soul mixtape series. Twenty songs of apologies, thank yous, heartbreaks, and celebrations. An hour of lesser-known '60s and '70s soul. 

Track listing insert, hand-stamped tape labels on white cassettes, handsome blue-backed cases. 

Breakcore and 8-Bit/Chiptune artists team up to make a compilation that raves as much as it destroys. An all-star cast of Mochipet, TheH8rs, Foxdye, Selector Catalogue, Graz, and Shitmat bring you the banginest, bestest, core-iest 12” ever. A collaboration between two of Portland's best electronic labels: Fukdup and Reactionary Records.
