Run by fellow music lovers, Tom & Gemma, 13 mixtape challenges will be laid down throughout the year. Participants are invited to curate the records they feel best meet the challenge and share it over the interweb.
For the full lowdown check this:
Challenge #1: Pick your favourite band and select 12 of their songs.
I’ve gone for The Cinematic Orchestra (TCO). I don’t really have a favourite band as such, but they have had the biggest influence on my music taste bar none. Opening my ears to the world outside of the electronic music I listened to (mostly house, trance, drum and bass) they were the first proper ‘band’ I got into.
I must also give a huge nod to their record label Ninja Tune. Home to Bonobo, who I was very, very close to selecting instead.
