    DJ Wade TapeCast with Jase - January 2010
    Last year, Jase won an ebay auction for 100 reggae cassette tapes from the 1990's. When the tapes arrived we decided to hook up a dual cassette deck to a DJ mixer and make a mix tape of 'mixed tapes' and call it a TapeCast. This is the result. The term "REWIND" takes on a whole new meaning... Mix features Johnny P, Beanie Man, Spragga Benz, General Degree, Lady Saw, Carl Meeks, Tenor Saw and more.
