Superpolar Taips Record Label Logo

We’re a tape and net label focusing on experimental pop music released on limited edition cassettes.

superpolar Taïps is DIY with love for music and not for profit.

International friendship has always been always will be a subject of utmost importance to us.  To wit – over the last 13 years of IHN’s activity we covered music from Ireland, Japan and Australia.

There’s still a lot to learn when it comes to Germany and its independent label/music scene. Strategic Tape Reserve and Trium Circulorum are two names that come to mind and now its time to add another – superpolar Taips!

Based in Cologne, the label’s trademark is cassette singles, many of which are featured in this here mix they made for us. Also featured within is material from the catalog of numerous other labels – Never Anything, STR and TC, to name a few.
