The Plastic Age Mix Series

"The Plastic Age" is an explorative, archival, archeological, audio anthropological mix series by FOUNTAINavm. Focusing on deep vinyl records, occasional tape cassettes, obscure recordings and other rare media presented in curated themes. Digging, discovering, and sharing music made during the "Plastic Age" of planet earth.

Fisch Loops all cassette tape live DJ set recorded at our party "Nite Of The Tapes". Fisch dives deep into the tape crates with obscure Bollywood, World, New Wave, and Gangster Rap. 

On 8/3/2018 FOUNTAINavm hosted a party in Salt Lake City with 3 DJs (Finale Grand, Fischloops, Hellman) playing cassette tapes only. It was an experiment of technical execution and musical genres both.

Finale Grand plays Lo-fi Beats, Hip Hop Samples, Rare Groove, Jazz, Soul, House, World, some of his own beats, and even blends in old tape recordings of shout outs from the 2000 era by SLC legends. During the set you can actually hear these old tapes dying, melting, warping, and distorting on the spot. If you like it dirty...enjoy!

The second installment of the archeological, anthropological vinyl mix "The Plastic Age". This installment brings a wide variety of dusty relics relative to the theme "SaXxx and Violence". Saxophones stretching across the world of music, expressing the ever complicated (love, hate and hardship)nature of humanity. Mixed and curated by Finale Grand.

"Planet Rock'On", was originally recorded by Finale Grand as a pause tape on cassette circa 2014, and it felt like a great way to jump off things and give an overall idea of the variety and possibilities for this mix series. An eclectic curation of multi genre music, original beats, live musicianship, obscure jazz, psychedelia, custom remixes, and overall dusty grooves. Also features several FOUNTAINavm artists: Flattops, Rhino Horn Placebo, and Finale Grand.
