The Summer Mix Series is a free for all of creative musical mixes. However, there are a few guidelines to keep in mind. You must adhere to these for mix acceptance.

  • 1
    Theme your mix. I mean, bare minimum, put some thought into it. Random comps are less fun.
  • 2
    80 minutes max running time. CD's are dead but restraints breed creativity.
  • 3
    You host the files for your mix (or use Mixcloud, Soundcloud, Spotify, Rdio).
  • 4
    Only use MP3 files - no m4a, ogg, wma, wav, etc. Double-check this! MP3's only!
  • 5
    Host a page on your site with the title, tracklist, cover art and link to the zip or stream. We will not link to MediaFire links, etc.
  • 6
    One mix per person. You get one chance, make it great.

Pick a theme! Your "Recent Jams" mix can wait, make something special. If you need inspiration, look below! Don't disappoint me like a Sad Dad!
