You just reminded me. I fucking hate it when people say "check out my 'beat tape'", just to find out it's just an upload on bandcamp.

You must also hate the term mixtape too huh? Of the two, that seems far more inaccurate since most of the time there is no mixing of any kind on them. I personally don't have a problem with either term, I guess I don't really care.

I think a better term for all of these would probably be "project".
