We’ve been digging the Mixed Tape series from Daimler which has exposed some wonderful tunes across a wide spectrum of genres. In all, since 2004, Mixed Tape has released 600 songs and 50 compilations.
The latest edition of the free download compilation features ten new tracks, all wrapped up in a beautiful cover by one of Lost At E Minor’s favourite artists, Craig Redman, aka Darcel Disappoints. 40 plus million downloads and 100,000 Facebook fans is a testament to how strong this series is.
So it’s no surprise that a number of Mixed Tape artists have made it to the top of the charts (Wagner Love in Japan, Fat Freddy’s Drop in New Zealand and Bev Lee Harling – as part of the Mediaeval Babes – in the UK), received prestigious awards and nominations, from Grammys (Vikter Duplaix) to MTV awards, produced songs and remixes for global icons like Nelly Furtado or Destiny’s Child (Raj Asia), shared stages with Lauryn Hill (Nia Andrews), Dizzy Rascal (Data MC) and Stevie Wonder (Kaye Ree), graced the legendary Boiler Room (Giraffage and xxyyxx) or crafted soundtracks for movies (Jones Miura Fahling), games (Borea, Camp) and TV spots (Lucius 14).
Curious to hear what they’ve compiled? Check it out at mb! magazine.
