TAPE II by Lazerdisk

“Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own; and from morning to night, as from the cradle to the grave, is but a succession of changes so gentle and easy that we can scarcely mark their progress” – Charles Dickens. Well we can spend the next few centuries discussing the meanings and importance of Chuck’s quote here, but I like to take home from it that change is an unavoidable and necessary aspect of everything we come to know. Often we try so very hard to maintain consistency around us but it is more or less true that adaptation is more fitting because moving with the river is a lot better than swimming against the current.

So why change, what does it mean to discuss change, well I really wanted to take a second and address the style swing two individuals formerly known as Lazerdisk Party Sex have very recently embraced. What I mean by this, and as you would easily be able to find out by following any social media from these guys is that they have officially dropped the “Party Sex” from their name and from here on out will be referred to as Lazerdisk. This isn’t the only change, along with dropping their Stormtrooper masks in exchange for something a little more mature, like their faces, their sound is coming through a little more grown up as well. Like watching my friends take the plunge into the “real world” after we graduated from college, it seems our frat house playing, basement party destroying, all around moombahton icons are really branching out and taking on a new energy that we have not heard from them before.

TAPE II, and the series it belongs to is a wonderful example of the new direction that Lazerdisk is heading in. TAPE II is part of as series that the guys have been doing by profiling a record store in LA on the last Wednesday of each month, and creating a 15 minute mix inspired by the music in the store that they are in, topping it off with a photo looking down the street that the store is on as the mix cover. While listening to TAPE II you might find some music that may have you dancing around in your socks and underwear on a Sunday morning, just as it had me doing, enjoy!
