Back to our roots as the “pioneer of electroswing” with this release: “Big Blue Swing” – is that special colourful night on the town. Or maybe you’re running from the rough justice of the “Tommy Gun Shuffle”?! As a bonus track, we include a version of our golden oldie „Geraldines Routine“. Keep on swinging!

New Single on July 16th!

tape five, a lazy summer day,

It was one of those days… too hot to do anything except chilling and feeling embraced by the warm breeze carrying the sweet smells of summer. Stop the worrying and feel your frown melt into the moment of just being there…with that special somebody sharing it all with you. Well…every perfect scene needs a perfect song… ”A Lazy Summer Day”.
This familiar slow r&b style, that our producer already played back in the early 80s in his roof top rehearsal room seems to be making a worthy come back – and it fits perfectly into TAPE FIVE’s tasty catalogue of vintage vibes and retro re-creation. And by the way… we are also experts in the art of laziness!
So join our international co-conspirators Henrik Wager (English) – Dionne Wudu (African) – Martin Strathausen (German) in this little prayer to laziness. Trust us – we had enough time to practise…
Cheers and keep the good vibes vibrating…

New release in April 2021!
