A Tape’ is a compilation of Helena’s earliest recordings from 2011 and 2014, originally released on limited cassette by Handmade Birds in 2015. Clocking in at over 50 minutes, this collection spans Hauff’s musical universe, from jacking acid-techno to krautish zone-outs and scuzzy feedback interludes. It’s tempting to consider it Helena’s debut album, but she views these tracks as mostly forgotten sketches left on the cutting room floor. Her equipment set up was a Roland Alpha Juno.

Helena Hauff - A Tape Helena Hauff seems refreshingly indifferent to dance music's conventions. Now comes a bigger "fuck you" move-she's put out her debut album, A Tape, as a cassette-only release on Handmade Birds, a Dallas label that's previously issued music by Prurient and Merzbow. Within the noise and lo-fi rock communities, tapes and CD-Rs helped democratize the album format.

All of the tracks were recorded in one take between 2011 and 2014 using a basic setup of drum machines and synths, and are described by Hauff as being "sketches. As such, it's a bit of a grab bag, ranging from seven-minute acid techno workouts to short, creepy noise experiments. Not surprisingly, the best tracks are the ones which deliver rough, hard-hitting electro, such as the massive "Tape7. Many of the tracks seem far more intent on establishing suspenseful moods rather than progressing or coming up with clear melodies

The set showcased tracks recorded over a three-year period, mostly with a stripped back studio set-up (TB-303, TR-797, TR-808 and a couple of Roland synths), which didn't make the cut for her Werk Discs debut, Discreet Desires. Now, Dark Entries has decided to issue the album on vinyl for the first time, allowing those of us without tape decks to revel in Hauff's off-kilter machine funk, intoxicating electronic.
