A few weeks ago, I dropped a new idea we’ve been playing around with where we create a mix, or playlist if you will, of tunes sourced directly from our very own vinyl record collection. Since the year is winding down and the new tunes are starting to slow down a bit, this seemed like the right time to go ahead and drop the mix for November. Stream it below and don’t forget we have a couple more mixes on our new ATH Vinyl Mixes page. Though it’s called “Friday Night Move Makers,” you can surely take this with you anytime you need a fresh mix at work, at home, or at the bar. Ya dig.
All songs come from our personal record collection. Direct all issues to our friends at Mixcloud.
As many of you know, the ATH team is made up of a few dudes who are absolutely obsessive about collecting records. Seriously, pretty much all we do during the day is waste time (between posting tunes of course) chatting online about what’s currently on our want lists or what we found while digging around town. Heck, I’ve even started selling, Nathan puts out records, and we’ve all been spinning our tunes around town as much as possible.
We’ve tossed around some ideas about how to bring our love of collecting to the pages of ATH, and one idea that stuck was to create some playlists from our various collections. I recently played around with this at home and we’re making a couple of those streams available now on our new ATH Vinyl Mixes page, coming via hosting service MixCloud. These are still pretty rough as we figure out the best system for recording, but we’d love for you to check them out and offer any feedback. Our very first mix is below with another more hip-hop oriented set over on our new Mixes page. All songs are recorded using records from our own collection with zero editing, streaming or digital music. Keep physical media alive y’all.
We’ve got more ideas brewing so stay tuned and happy digging.
