The Tapeaters, named after a cassette player accident, are a Russian electro pop/funk duo formed in 2009 by Vadim (vocals, guitars, synts) and Dimitri (synths). The sound of Tapeaters is carved by the warmth of a vintage synth sound, funky vibe, multiple layered airy-like vocals, all in one.
The band got a wider media attention in September 2009, following the release of their first EP “Keep On Dancing“. The title track from this album is still one of the most listened songs ever. Inspired by positive reactions, The Tapeaters were not hesitant to release another EP, in November of the same year, named “Watch Your Step“.
In 2010, Tapeaters toured Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. Later that year, the band signs a deal with a Boston-based label, OMG! Recordings. The first single from the upcoming album named “Oh My“ was released in August, together with the remixes of a Moscow producer Kimouts, and the Boston duo Nightriders. The debut “Visions“ has quickly overpowered many music blogs, charts, and fans.
The beginning of this year saw the release of another single, "Waiting For a Sign", while the remaining two, as well as the upcoming second studio album are waiting until the summer of 2012, when we get to hear the premieres at this year’s Exit Festival!
