About 15 years ago I took part in the International Mixtape Project. The idea was that every month you would send off a mixtape to a randomly allocated address and you would also be sent a mixtape from another random IMP member. I remember being annoyed that I received CDs each month while I diligently sent off cassettes. Old curmudgeon that I was even then. I still wonder if anyone actually played those cassettes.
Anyway, I recently came across the covers I made for the tapes and thought it would be fun to recreate them. Here is the first one I made. I’ve created a downloadable mp3 file for each side of a 90 minute cassette. Feel free to download and listen, or even record to a tape! I’ve even included the cover art if you want to recreate the original mixtape. Enjoy!
