about

Fish Tank Friends are a small collective of producers based out of Olympia, WA, with Fix-Tape vol.2 being there second collaborative release. These (mostly) bedroom producers bring their unique tastes and sounds together, in the form of two tracks each, from producers, JBlake, Hobbess, SmokeM2D6, WESAVEWE, Barrbie, Stem Collector, little weather, and the collective chief, Baloogz, culminating in a delicately balanced and thoughtful beat tape.

Volume 2 shows a lot of growth and direction for FTF, not only sonically, but stylistically as well. The track selection makes for a cohesive, comprehensive project, while simultaneously showcasing the individuality of each producer. The styles of the project range from loungey melodic crawl-house, to future/lo-fi r&b and pop music, as well as hip hop inspired instrumentals. While the experimental nature of the compilation, i.e. the wide spectrum of genres, make it hard to place the project in any specific category, the overall release is extremely in sync, and has a very present and visceral flavor, that makes it feel like it was made all at once, all together, and in one room, instead of the exact opposite.
