Best Insanely Prolific Cassette Label

Illuminated Paths

When Illuminated Paths head honcho Joshua Rogers casually mentioned that he likes to release two or three things regularly, we figured that meant every few months, not every single week. And so far this year he's mostly held to that pledge, releasing new cassette titles every seven days. Rogers hand-dubs every tape and assembles every unique cover and cache of included ephemera (pogs, ad clippings, trading cards). Though known as a go-to spot for ambient, vaporwave and adventurous electronica, IP also ventures into noise, beats and videowork too, defining the concept "labor of love."
