These tapes are meant to “evoke the five senses,” according to the label. The first five form the first chapter, called In Privacy We Cope, “exploring themes of solitude, self-reflection, mental health and identity” with hour-long mixes from each artist.
The tapes are designed by visual artist Goldenilustra, with photography from Leon De Becker and video work by CHILD, and each will come with recipes from Ottolenghi cookbook co-author Ixta Frage. Smell will be represented by Armenian burning papers.
“I thought a mix which focused quite heavily on electro would be perfect for a tape themed around privacy,” says Danielle of her tape, “because to me, it’s the kind of music which you can get immersed in on your own, by just keeping your head down and dancing. You can enjoy it ‘privately,’ even if you’re in a room full of people.”
