Retro Tech Mixtape

Suck UK's designers demanded that modern technology dress retro. And damn it if a too-thin USB key — great for making digital mixtapes — doesn't draw stares when it's dolled up like a cassette. Aside from hip-hop, compilation culture ain't what it used to be; MP3 playlists are mostly to blame. The physical love is gone. Mix Tape USB tries to bring it back. The steps are almost the same. Buy it. Slave over your digitised mix. Download it to the key. Write the track listings on the cassette sleeve. Then plop this knock-off cassette tape into someone’s palm. It won't work in their boombox, but fits fine in a computer. Unfortunately, there's no guarantee of love. No price has been set, but they should go on sale in late September at
