Grafiti Tapes 12Mp3s & jpegs
Klasse Wrecks' sub-label GRAFITI TAPES is back for its 12th instalment and features music and artwork from one of the most important and formative writers in early UK graffiti history, in fact Coma (or Richard Sen as he's also known) has the accolade of being one of the first ever writers to paint the London Underground system in the mid 1980s. His iconic 'Bottleneck' style train panel (which features on the sleeve artwork of this release) caused quite a storm in the national press and served as a landmark for the countless writers that came after him. Richard put down the spraycans in 1988 and has since had a flourishing and long career in music as a DJ and talented producer, his productions sonically capturing the 'boilingpot catch-all' style of Hip Hop culture. Richard's release for GRAFITI TAPES comes on two formats (vinyl and tape cassette) and serves up a total of 6 tracks. Included within is a melange of post-punk basslines, clattering breakbeats, trancey pads and a unique atmosphere that many writers will recognise from a legacy of graffiti video soundtracks, dusty 45s and boombox funk.
