Rescheduled Date – Romesh Ranganathan: The Cynics Mixtape

If you want to send a romantic virtual mixtape to your date, then there is the option of creating a playlist using streaming services such as Spotify.
Stephen Thompson. As any beleaguered All Songs Considered intern will tell you, we get a ton of mail, from bushels of CDs and press releases to the occasional care package from listeners. A guy once sent us a shoebox diorama of himself playing the Tiny Desk, while others have shipped sleigh bells and other noisemakers to Bob Boilen, thus securing themselves a place on the Enemies List I maintain on the whiteboard next to my desk.
But we also get a lot of simple, mostly music-related queries. How is the music on All Songs Considered chosen? Could someone help pick an election-night playlist? What’s the deal with Robin, anyway? Here’s one of the choicest queries. All Mixed Up asks: “I want to make a mixtape for a special someone. What would you suggest that shows I am deep but not a potential stalker? Okay, first of all, a million-dollar idea: Some enterprising app developer should come up with a database that rates songs based on their appropriateness for mixtapes and weddings — and when you type in “Every Breath You Take,” klaxons blare and you can’t turn them off until you click the button that reads, “Okay, okay , I won’t.
Until such a service exists, however, I can tell you that many embarrassing mixtape mishaps can be avoided by simply reading each song’s lyrics. I once put together a wedding mixtape for a relative , and even after months of fretting over every oddly bittersweet selection, I still wound up including Matthew Sweet’s “I’ve Been Waiting,” a wonderfully sparkly and glorious pop song that, if you listen closely, is about falling in love with an underage girl.

Lin-Manuel Miranda announced this morning that the long-gestating Hamilton Mixtape is not only finished, but it’ll be available for pre-order.
A mixtape alternatively mix-tape or mix tape is a compilation of music, typically from multiple sources, recorded onto a medium. With origins in the s, the term normally describes a homemade compilation of music onto a cassette tape , CD , or digital playlist. The songs are either ordered sequentially or made into a continuous program by beatmatching the songs and creating seamless transitions at their beginnings and endings with fades or abrupt edits.
However, the term has been applied to a number of releases published for profit in the s; in this context, a mixtape is comparable to a studio album or extended play. Homemade mix tapes became common in the s. Although the compact audio cassette by Philips appeared at the Berlin Radio Show ,  the sound quality of cassettes was not good enough to be seriously considered for music recording until further advances in tape formulations, including the advent of chrome and metal tape.
Before the introduction of the audio cassette, the creation of a pop music compilation required specialized or cumbersome equipment, such as a reel-to-reel or 8 track recorder, that was often inaccessible to the casual music fan. As cassette tapes and recorders grew in popularity and portability, these technological hurdles were lowered to the point where the only resources required to create a mix were a handful of cassettes and a cassette recorder connected to a source of pre-recorded music, such as a radio or LP player.
The 8-track tape cartridge was more popular for music recording during much of the s, as the cassette was originally only mono and intended for vocal recordings only, such as in office dictation machines. But improvements in fidelity finally allowed the cassette to become a major player. The ready availability of the cassette and higher quality home recording decks to serve the casual home user allowed the cassette to become the dominant tape format, to the point that the 8 track tape nearly disappeared shortly after the turn of the s.

Mixtapes are promotional compilations of music you have recorded. Once a tool for DJs to showcase their turntable skills, mixtapes gradually became a means of promotion for rappers, and the medium became an industry standard after 50 Cent rose to underground prominence through tireless production , promotion , and distribution. Successful mixtapes have a purpose. Either your tape is a reminder of your best work or a preview of what’s to come.
Sometimes it’s a bit of both. If you intend to release an album or big single down the road, a mixtape is a good way to whet your region’s appetite for the new material. Releasing a mixtape full of content that your fans already have heard can backfire, as interest may wane. However, you don’t want to give away your entire new album on a free mixtape. If signed, your label would crucify you. Ultimately, you have to strike the right balance between old and new.
Some artists tactfully use snippets and demo versions of new songs to avoid giving away too much of the merchandise. Instead of paying for or developing original production, it has become a popular trend to rap over other artists’ instrumentals for promotional songs. It isn’t a good idea to rap over other musicians’ content and release it, even for promotional use.
Rich The Kid Reveals Release Date For NBA YoungBoy Joint Mixtape ‘Nobody Safe’
Just as vinyl has experienced a renaissance over the years, so has the humble cassette tape, beloved by Gen-Xers and the vehicle for crafting one of the most intimate forms of expression… the mixtape. Played endlessly until you know every skip, crackle and pause, a mixtape may get lost, but the songs on it are never really forgotten and instantly transport you to the time, place and person who made it.
A good compilation tape, like breaking up, is hard to do. Making a mix can communicate any feeling you want, without having to put anything into words — other than a catchy title. Speaking of which, a theme is essential. Mixtapes are not playlists, they need to be cohesive rather than just a jumbling of songs.
I’m excited to announce that I’ve set a release date for MY LIFE AS A MIXTAPE. It will be coming to you NOVEMBER 13th. EEK! I’m super.
