It has become a Coldplaying tradition that every 4 months or so the World of Music holds a mixtape exchange. Over previous exchanges it has been run by many people.

 

The general idea that you get together a heap of songs that people may not of heard, you enjoy, that sound well together or that were just pulled out of a hat (though I don't really advise the last option); it's really up to interpretation. Basically, if you love to listen to new music and discovering new artists and genres, this is for you.

 

Here are the rules that mostly have been copied from the efforts of RedGirl, because they just work :P

 

Rules:

1. Sign up saying you want to participate - leave your name on the thread

2. When the deadline for signing up is over, you'll get a PM from me giving you the name of another participant in the Exchange. You will be making a mix for this person, whoever they may be

3. You mustn't reveal who you are making the mix for, on pain of being tickled by a thousand feathers

4. Make your mix-tape (average length is around 50-70 minutes) and delete the info for each song.

5. Upload the mix-tape to something like rapidshare and send me the link and a tracklisting. I will then send it to person assigned to you, keeping your identity a secret of course!

6. When you receive a mix-tape, listen to it, write a review and post it in this thread.

7. The person who made the mix-tape will then post the track-list and the link so everybody can download it. Simple as that.

 

Here are the deadlines:

 

Sign Up closes -23:59 GMT-5 Sunday, February 24th

 

Mixtape submission -23:59 GMT-5, Saturday, March 9th

 

Tapes will be sent to you during Sunday, March 10th :)

 

So any questions?

 

(Thanks Black Rose for the post template :lol:)

I don't think it has to be 'new' music in the sense of just being released just this year or whatever. From what I guessed from the last time, there were quite some classics, but really underground-kind-of-thing classics in there, so I guess it just has to be 'new' to whomever you send your mixtape :)

nah nvm i dont wanna do this :uhoh: i'll be too busy :nice:

 

:( Ok, i took you out of the list :(

 

I haven't done one in ages, so I'm a little out of touch. What do you mean 'delete the info for each song'? I think I understand, but just want to be sure. And does it have to be new music, or just new to the listener? Count me in!

 

Meaning that once you have done your playlist, try to copy the files into a new folder, and erase their info (name, artist, album, artwork and such), and put their names as the order in your playlist (track 1, track 2, etc.)

 

And it can be whatever you want. You can put your favorite songs in there, and such. A lot of people have done themed playlists, so it is all up to you. The point of it is to have people discover new music to them, so just keep that in mind :)

Exactly :)
