A Year of Mixtapes

I've been meaning to say something about this great project put together by Chicago's own Chrissy Murderbot, and the recent juke edition of the series reminded me to do so. A genre-specific mix every week for a year, compiling the tracks that made them tick in the first place. Often dealing with very foreign subjects to most, things you might not think you'd be interested in at all. He saves you the trouble of putting any effort into exploring scary territories like happy hardcore, Quebecois disco, and other stuff that might even be cringe inducing. Every volume is put together with care and obsession, no matter what the theme of the week might be. A wonderful observation of dance music that takes more than just a huge music collection, but self discipline as well.
