Released two years ago on cassette, ‘A Tape’ gets its first outing on vinyl courtesy of Dark Entries. Some tracks stand out, others melt into the background; what unites them however, is a raw, abrasive, primal subtlety which exposes Hauff’s modus operandi in all its splendor. Known more as a DJ than producer, probably because it’s more fun, Hauff created a sound palette with ‘A Tape’, something from which to reference individual sonic inclination as much as stimulation. And, although the blend of the ambient/dissonant with the rhythmic is hardly ground breaking, it feels natural and uncontrived.
