4:58:17 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I’ll present the audio of a cassette tape or historic material from my personal archives.

Here’s an unreleased, never-before-heard Onsug series – Vault Talk. I recorded 11 episodes from February-June 2010, but I decided not to release it at the time. It was meant to be included in a future “Vault” release, similar to a previous series, “In The Box”.

2010 was a strange time, as I was rebuilding things after the madness of 2009. As the series progressed, it became more focused on a kind of indulgent self-analysis, as I was trying to figure out new directions for the project. Still, it contains a ton of great material – the vibe of midtown Manhattan back in 2010, during the very early days of The Overnightscape Underground as a group channel.

It’s a mixed bag, but a truly amazing find – I had actually completely forgotten about it.
