As far as categorizing and listing labels dedicated solely, or predominantly, to the distribution of artists through a cassette medium, you would be foolish to say that this list of 20 labels is anywhere near comprehensive, as there are hundreds upon hundreds of labels which try to develop the fan-base and necessary capitol to remain in business long enough to see their hard work pay off. My list of 20 cassette labels below is only scratching the surface of a much larger world and it is rapidly expanding. As much as they are available, I have placed Bandcamp/Spotify/website links to each of my recommended albums. Use these labels and Becker’s cassette choices as a jumping off point for the world of cassette distribution and obsession. And believe me, it becomes that sooner than you’d expect. The genre labels which I have listed are in no way meant to be completely representative of the label, as some of these labels run through half a dozen genres across dozens of albums. If you like any of the albums or labels listed, dig deeper and see for yourself why cassettes are more than just a hipster’s passing fad.
