From cassette mixtapes to mix CDs this site is not only dedicated to those who want to discover new music, but also celebrate the art of creating the perfect MIX.
Before playlists existed, we created mixes. Whether you were confined to 30 minutes per side on a cassette or 74 minutes total on a CD, there was always a plethora of decisions required when creating a mix.
Depending on the theme of your mix, you might deliberate for hours on how your mix would begin; which song would be the perfect introduction for the listener to understand which journey they’re about to embark upon. How would your mix end? Would you finish with a clear conclusion or keep the listener wanting more? How would the first three string together, or would they be completely different?
Every mix had its own flavor and deliberate decisions, which created its unique fingerprint on the listener.
Enjoy this space to discover music and contribute your own.
“That you are here—that life exists and identity, That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.” – Walt Whitman
