So, I think the mixtape threads are pretty fun, they always introduce me to some good music and it's cool to see what people listen to, but I think they run the risk of getting a bit stale if we just repeat them every season or so.
So, I propose an alternative, rather than making a large mixtape of all the stuff you're listening to, you make a small one just highlighting one artist that you love. That way the mixes will be easily digestible as you wouldn't be listening to a sprawling 60 minute mix covering many genres. So, the mixes will be limited to 5 songs, with a max length of 25 minutes. The artist should be someone relatively unknown. Some of the other details we can work out in here, like how many people can participate and when the deadline for submissions is.
1. Mixtape can't be longer than 25 minutes or contain more than 5 songs.
2. The artist of your choice must not be an AP staple band. Obviously this rule has a little bit more leeway, but nobody needs to hear your five song introduction to Brand New or Jimmy Eat World.
3. Ideally, your chosen artist should have a decent size discography. Again, there's leeway here, but a 5 track mixtape introducing someone to an artist who just has one album feels a little redundant to me.
4. Upload your mixes to Mediafire or somewhere similar and PM them to me.
5. Mixes will be posted on a first come, first served basis, so if you want your mix to be posted early, then send me it early.
Anybody else interested?
