Lenhart Tapes is a one-man-cassette-tape-manipulator and he has been mostly known for his live, striking and unforgettable live performances. Yes, walkmans are his musical instruments, and he does a live mix of selected material from his cassette collection on top of the original rhythmic loops.

As music experts say, the thing Lenhart Tapes does is a sophisticated and wild world-noise-ethno-industrial-folk zombie musical genre. He has been a passionate collector of audio cassettes for a very long time. Field recordings, rare folk music, spoken word and sound propaganda material, various musical genre albums – you name it, he probably has it. Before he ventured into a solo project, he was playing music in underground bands in Serbia. And then, in October 2010, Lenhart Tapes was born.

Their second album Dens was released for the Glitterbeat Records in November last year, reviews were great but arguably Lenhart Tapes are even better live when Vladimir is accompanied by one of the singers with whom he recorded the album. He will be accompanied by Zoja Borovčanin this time, after folk tunes, groovy rhythms and screechy noises became their liaison. Once again, they will venture together into soundscapes of obscure ideas and sounds.
