Tarot

Profile:
Mixtape label of the Swiss rave organization Tarot since 1992.

IMPORTANT: two different inlay pictures don't make two releases
The mixtapes have been released on standard C60 (rarely C90) cassettes, the inlays consist of two parts usually, one generic with the artist, year, event and number information, the other was usually a separate picture artwork inlay in the size of the largest side of the cassette box. usually the same tape was released with randomly adding these artwork inlays so sometimes there are 10, 20, 30 or more different combinations on the same release, but this is not re-releases just the way they did it at Tarot.

This is probably one of the most exciting parts of the Swiss rave history. The Tarot rave organization was one of the two big rave organizations in Switzerland (beneath Inka Imperio) in the 90ies, started off by Mas Ricardo in 1992 in Zürich with the marvellous club Oxa in Oerlikon ZH, it was an incredible success, soon they opened a second club "Grodoonia" in Rümlang CH and a third one "Sensor" near the Oxa in Oerlikon.

The mixtapes have first been made to promote the organization then later on they became an important part of Tarot experience at all. The mixes have been recorded live at the Tarot clubs and then later on they could be bought at the club - this was an incredible idea, since this gave the possibility to enjoy a crazy night at the club and then in the morning when leaving after the "After Hour"-Party you could buy the sound of the night and this way you had an incredible souvenir of the event.

These mixtapes helped the main Tarot resident DJs, Mas Ricardo, Noise, Dream, Kayjee, Jumpin' Jack, Culturevibe, to get well known artists all over Switzerland and some even over the borders.

Nowadays these releases are ultra hard to find, and a lot have been thrown away by people who decided to swap party live for family live after years. Nevertheless every single cassette of the early years is simply a gem and a great add to any collection!!!
