NEWSLETTER - August 2019

Greetings! It's been a while since we've visited your inbox, but it's not for any lack of activity going on at Tapspace HQ.

During the few bits of time not spent producing the best new percussion music, our Portland crew has been taking advantage of the summertime to do some awesome stuff. Murray played countless gigs around the western United States. Jim hiked the challenging GR20 in Corsica. Alex competed in the Portland Open Disc Golf Pro Tour. And Tyler spent time in Oaxaca sampling the local culture and cuisine.

In addition, we've been cooking up all sorts of great new material for the upcoming school year, with more coming out all the time. Be sure to check out all our new releases, and come back regularly as new titles are landing often.
