Mixtape Club

Home > Melbourne > Music | Fun Things To Do
Published August 6th 2010
You've probably come across a book club before, but mixtape club is a little bit different. Aside from being a fun social activity, it's a great way to expose yourself to new and different music. Plus, you don't have to read any books!

Starting a mixtape club is extremely easy:

Step 1: Gather a group of people - friends, colleagues and family are all fair game. Try to mix it up a little the more varied the musical taste, the more rewarding the club.

Step 2: Choose the frequency of your exchange, for example, weekly. Each week it will be someone's turn to put together a playlist of songs. They burn them to disc or transfer them to a usb stick (one copy per person) and distribute to the other members of the club.

If you want to have a more structured mixtape club, you can choose themes or genres. One week might be break-up songs, another might be Motown. However, to start with it's a good idea to just let people put together whatever they want. More often than not the mixtapes will contain a few surprises.

The other benefit of a mixtape club is that it can all happen remotely. Group members can upload their mixtapes to a free file hosting website for other members to download. Comments and feedback can be shared via email or a facebook page. So if you like hearing new music but are short on time, mixtape club might just be the perfect hobby for you.
