I came across this really nice feature to create your own, classic mixtape at one of my favourite blogs Das Kraftfuttermischwerk. The great thing about Everyone’s Mixtape is that it draws on YouTube, Soundcloud and Vimeo!
So, here’s my very special 2011 melodies mixtape for you. As you’ll hear, 2011 was a lot about textures, rare sounds, a lot of feeling, some folk, and a lot of remembering the 80′s, the 90′s, shoegaze and Twin Peaks, but also some amazing electronic songs.
There was one song that really blew my mind and make me shiver: Gang Gang Dance Glas Jar. A song like this happens only about once every 5 years. Despite its 11 minutes it had to be on the list, and the cassette had to start with it.
Enjoy, this is for you!
