Mixtapes

Well, this is not exactly a technically correct term for what it is. In my music player (software and mobil device – the ones with the “i” in the name, you know) they are called playlists, but who wants to see that as a title or headline? See…

So, here are my personal best-of compilations year by year. I started with this rather nerdy special interest project in 2008, inspired by my friend Markus , who continuously sent me nicely designed CD boxes with his “Jahresgutachten” (“annual report”) compilations. Then, my friend Travis and I started exchanging something similar, but dismissing the physical media.

It seems that there are some recurrent themes in my compilations: There is always plenty of Scandinavian (mostly Danish) electronica, the odd batch of curious mainstream pop tunes, and the one standout classic song. Also, when revisiting those mixes, I realised that I am losing more and more interest for straight kick drums and off hi hat beats, in favour of weird grooves and ever deeper bass lines…

Now, I will post all the lists I have made so far, so you can see (and hear!) what I loved and listened to through the recent past. I still enjoy getting back to the lists of yesteryear and enjoy what I liked back then.
