New House Of Tapes: “Chaos Tape” And “Midnight Echo”

Nagoya’s House Of Tapes makes “house music,” but that’s simplifying the situation way too much. Up to now, his music has sounded claustrophobic, his rush of synths and beats practically sucking all traces of light from the music. House Of Tapes’ two latest songs continue the vacuum-like effect – despite both “Chaos Tape” and “Midnight Echo” featuring sunny bell chimes, these tracks are ultimately heavy affairs, even the laser-like electronics covered in shadows. I could picture both of these played in a club, but only late into the night, when everything starts spinning around a little too violently. Listen below.
