How is this gonna work? The method I've seen used on other forums is that people apply, and then get randomly assigned someone to do a mixtape for.

1.A.C.T. Intro
2.Mutyumu - Prayer
3.Slaraffenland - Open Your Eyes
4.Flying Saucer Attack - In The Light Of Time
5.toe - that song
6.Long Distance Calling - Black Paper Planes
7.Jaga Jazzist - Oslo Skyline
8.Yndi Halda - We Flood Empty Lakes
9.Mouse On The Keys - Completed Nihilism

I'd be willing to do some mixtaping in 3 weeks, when I finally return to the present.

This one has a nice flow and nice transitions. However, the songs were of varying quality and sometimes it felt like it dragged on. Loved that outro and that song with the ridiculously sweet voice.


Also, here is my new (Alternative-)Rock mixtape; only killers, no fillers: Waves Of Thought

http://www.mediafire.com/?kmn4yziu2ne

It is of great importance that you you listen to it in the correct order:
The Sound Of Animals Fighting - Intro
The Protomen - The Will Of One
Trail Of Dead - Sunken Dreams
Dredg - Pariah
Mass Of The Fermenting Dregs - Delusionalism
The Butterfly Effect - Worlds On Fire
Aereogramme - Nightmares
Thrice - Night Diving
Karnivool - Change
Deer Hunter - Tape Hiss Orchid

Hm, yes, I have to admit, I too feel like it sort of drags on sometimes. But I don't really listen to these songs attentively, I like the combination they make because they all have a similar mood, despite their technical differences. After I listen to your Mixtape I shall post ~

And about the first you posted, it's very very well put together and really worth a listen if you like post-rock etc.

Well, I made a psych rock mixtape. It's called Pieces of Bone.

http://www.mediafire.com/?m4ukpkshud6ca5c

Track listing:

1. Morgen - "Welcome to the Void" (4:49)
2. High Tide - "Walking Down Their Outlook" (5:00)
3. Country Joe & the Fish - "Porpoise Mouth" (2:51)
4. The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band - "Shifting Sands" (3:55)
5. Writing on the Wall - "Shadow of Man" (6:30)
6. The Nice - "Rondo" (8:23)
7. Godz - "Ruby Red" (2:26)
8. Gong - "Rational Anthem" (3:44)
9. Mad River - "Eastern Light" (8:10)

I tried to keep the volume level somewhat consistent and left out some stuff with drastically different production (13th Floor Elevators and Group 1850, among others) still, you may need to turn up the volume a little for the last two songs.

I'm making mixtapes now as well.

Incredible how much fun it is. I especially enjoy designing album covers, and then handing it to friends and stuff. Absolutely great.

I love making mix tapes, but I use real tapes!:smoker: Unfortunately, that means that I can't share them here, but they ten to be rock & metal from the 60s, 70s, and 80s (Judas Priest, ADX, David Bowie), jazz from all over (Postmodern Jukebox, Musik for the Kitchen), and whatever oddball stuff I can find (Kraftwerk, Cordis, Butt Drugs [real store]). I'm really into jazz of all forms, blues, funk, not really 90s or newer styles, though I love Nine Inch Nails (by the way, David Bowie did a song called "I'm afraid of Americans" that really sounds like NIN). I'm currently making a French hard rock/heavy metal mix tape, to try to get fluent in the language, and I love making them for my 1 friend with a tape deck (not many other high schoolers use tapes).
Do you think INTP has much to do with diverse musical tastes? I seem to be a near-pure INTP, so anything about the type fascinates me.

MMMM that sounds DELICIOUS. I'd love to check out some of your mixes.
I'm a high schooler with a tape deck. :) don't really have many cassettes though. Full Moon Fever by Tom Petty is my favorite that I have.

You don't make them for yourself, you make them for other people. You'll often discover a lot of new music listening to other people's playlists and sharing them with one another, and come across things you find mutually awesome.

Uhm I guess. Weird. Never did it. Don't find it appealing.
What I do is go to bandcamp and play unknown music with cool CD covers. Music is not all about the music. We should focus more on the bands and their personality and concept and all that. I can play a playlist on a trip in my car and sure big deal I would enjoy. But there is more. There is an specific aura bouncing off and back in certain cases. That's what I'm looking for.
I'm really against these kind of stoner rock compilation videos. Which I guess is same as mixtaping. If i wanna play a compilation then it has to be one of those chill out beats for studying or smth. Those r cool.
Until then electric light orchestra.
I think nanook once shared his playlist and I liked a couple of songs tho.

@nebulous he is dead already.
