Yeah, the songs have been confirmed by mdg to be BoC. But the release itself is unknown to have been compiled and curated by BoC. It could totally be a selection done by a close friend or lucky fan who got their hands on a quarter-archives load of rare material and decided to compile it into a 'best-of' compilation to copy to their friends. It could also be a personal, one off release that BoC don't remember doing. Either way, it's somewhat of a mystery, but the tunes are all congruent with BoC. You don't even need to have mdg's conformation to know this. Some of the songs use sounds that only BoC would have (seven forty seven flute loop in a06, june 9th isolated drum break in a08, among others). And a lot of the songs just have that undeniable feeling. Including A04.

Fair point about it being a cassette rip, but R35TT has music from the geogaddi era (If The Smallest Weird Number was even recorded in 2001). So the tape could be as old as 2001/2 perhaps.
If we were to humor the idea that the contents of R35TT consist of the Pre-Twoism albums' material AND that the brothers even made R35TT in the first place, my only guess as to the meaning behind R35TT is that it might have been a 90s-version of the Bocset from before the days of MDG being 'in the know' about it. For all we know, BoC could have been kicking the idea of a Bocset in some form or another for many years already by the time the first interviews mentioning it came about.
