If you think releasing new material on cassette is weird, you need to speak with Hamburg-based DJ Remote. His next record, entitled R64 (due March 25) will be released on a Nintendo 64 cartridge. And yes, if you want to play it, you’ll need a functioning console.
Interesting, given that he’s not compromising with the format. All 15 songs will have to fit into the 8MB capacity of one of these cartridges.
This isn’t the first time DJ Remute has done something like this. In the past, he’s released albums for consoles like Super NES and Game Boy.
