FUCK marks the first cassette release from Boom and Baps. Dante Maxwell has been a contributor to the brand since day one. After moving to Montreal in 2017, his style of production became decidedly lo-fi and he went all-in, avoiding software whenever possible and using samplers and loopers to do most of the heavy lifting in his beat creation process. Dante values using tools that are 100% portable. There was no one single creative environment in the physical realm that the lofi grit and a punchy swing comes from. It's wrapped in a warm analog hug for your eardrums.
The deep red limited edition cassette comes in a full-color cardstock o-card instead of a plastic jewel case, as a means to keep the plastic use for this project to a minimum. Cover art is from renowned Vancouver illustrator Ryan Cardinal (@theryancardinal).
When you purchase this rare beat tape, you'll receive a download card that includes a code you can redeem for a free digital copy of FUCK in a lossless format, even though it's already lofi AF. If you want to support this project digitally, you can purchase the digital-only version of the album here.
FUCK will be available on all streaming platforms June 1st, 2020.
