As all analog music formats (vinyl, cassette, reel-to-reel, etc.) continue to rise in popularity, cassette tapes now outpace all other formats—including vinyl—in consumer-market growth, more than quadrupling since 2011. Artists including Eminem, Jack White, Taylor Swift, Jay-Z, Sufjan Stevens, Lana Del Rey, Muse and Ty Segall have all released recent albums on cassette, and the most recent Cassette Store Day saw RecordingTheMasters partner with New York-based Dala Records for a limited edition mixtape.

With the rise in demand for analog music cassettes, RecordingTheMasters’ new compact analog cassette tape is the first newly produced cassette on the market to offer high quality audio in analog format, ideal for listening, recording and archiving. The cassette tape is manufactured using legendary chemical formulas from AGFA and BASF at the Mulann facility in Normandy, France. It can be played on any standard compact cassette player, generally available at high-end audio stores and big-box stores nationwide.

RecordingTheMasters is a trademark of France-based Mulann SA, the worldwide leader in the manufacturing of both audio and magnetic tape. Additional info can be found at recordingthemasters.com and mulann.com.
