Mixtapes of the Week #19:
Eclectic electronica, pop & techno!

We have selected three mixtapes that are rather different from each other but have two things in common: they are all awesome and they cannot wait to be played!

 

Drowned in Sound is a UK-based music website/community/label founded by Sean Adams in 2000. They are focusing on a variety of quality sounds from electronic music to pop and rock (and oh, so much more!), and they have published interviews with everyone from Björk to Paul McCartney. If someone knows what’s the hottest music out there, @seaninsound is your man. He created a special mixtape for you to dig in – highly eclectic and full of surprises. Let yourself swoon over this excellent selection!

Featuring: Banks, Janet Jackson, Four Tet, Nine Inch Nails, Nicolas Jaar

 

We have to admit: @the_evangelist has converted us to faithful followers by preaching excellent stories with his mixtapes. He blends tracks we would’ve never dreamt of being mixed together (Ennio Morricone and Starboy? Wow!) and he does it in the most captivating way. He also brings the most out of Pacemaker, chopping up and repeating tracks has never been more fun.

Featuring: The Weeknd, ZAYN, Kiiara, M.I.A., Major Lazer

 

Cheers to @billionbeatz for creating this epic sonic journey through the realms of techno and tech house! It’s delicate and candid, raw and melodic at the same time with dream transitions that teleport you straight to a dark, underground club where no one can guarantee what comes next.

Featuring: Dave DK, Kölsch, Audiofly, Dominik Eulberg

Calling All Lovers & Haters!
Let’s Make Valentine’s Day Great Again

It’s that time of the year again: Valentine’s Day! You might be knee-deep into roses and chocolate or just waiting for this annoying day to be over… either way, why not express your feelings with a mixtape? Purely 🧀 and 💦 !

Create a mixtape for your better half, your chihuahua, that noisy neighbour, that cute girl or boy in school, for your favourite user on Pacemaker or just create it for @emoke, our Community Manager. (I love mixtapes but I don’t like Valentine’s Day too much, cheer me up!)

Here is some inspiration for starters:

1. Click on the mixtape below.

2. Add/remove tracks to remix it and make it yours.

3. Post it in the community, hashtag with #ValentinesDay & share it via iMessage, Facebook and Twitter!

Unleash all the love and fury, we cannot wait to listen to your mixtapes!
