The Summer Mix Series is a free for all of creative musical mixes.

That being said, there are a few guidelines you must adhere to.

  • 1
    Theme your mix. Put some effort and thought into this. Submissions more stringent this year.
  • 2
    80 minutes max running time. Restraints breed creativity.
  • 3
    Provide artwork, tracklisting and proper credit where credit is due. We will not link to MediaFire links, etc.
  • 4
    One mix per person. You get one chance, make it great.

Pick a theme! That's the whole point!

  • You'll Never Catch Me Sleepy Horse

    Ganshat

    'You'll Never Catch Me Sleepy Horse' is the breakthrough product of a recent study at the Ganshat Labs. This ethereal audio experience is designed to be administered during a summer night. The patient will simply plug in the provided headphones and press play. The following morning should see a significant decline in the patient's anxiety and stress levels, with the patient left in a state of euphoria. This mix is safe to be supplied to people of all ages, and repeat listens are recommended for absolute relaxation. Ease your mind and slowly drift like a sleepy horse galloping through light clouds of bliss.

  • Hell on Wheels

    drudgeons

    Oil-soaked jeans. Dirty hands that won't come clean. Sweating in garages that reek of fuel, solvents, and cigarette smoke. The hair rising on the back of your neck as you risk certain death hitting the ton on a back-country highway. Summer is for wrenching & riding on two wheels.

    Thanks to Miguel Camilo for the cover art assist.

    Bovus
