Mixtape: Michael Siess & Juan-Salvador Carrasco
From Mixtape’s founders: “Mixtapes are a great way to sample a variety of artists, and when curated with the proper care, the mixtape as a whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts. In our programming, we find the similarities in rhythm, harmony, and mood in otherwise disparate musical selections, and weave them together into a complete cohesive work.” Learn more about Mixtape here.
