Intro Heya, everyone! There was a discussion about creating a thread like this in the "best-of" trade-off, but since nothing ever materialized from it (and I thought it was a great idea), I took it upon myself to start one! The premise of this thread is simple - create your own best-of mixtape for any Japanese artist or band that you'd like and share them here! Mods can feel free to merge this thread with the other (very dead) mixtape thread, but I'd personally advise against it! The original mixtape thread was an idea that I imported from a small, private forum (I think TW/MH was on zetaboards during that time), and unfortunately, it's never proven to be a staple in this community. It's been revived time and time again, only for it die off eventually. This thread puts a slightly different spin on things, though. Unlike the other mixtape thread - which was perhaps a bit too open-ended for a community this large and relies more on a smaller, more closely-knit setting, this thread will actually serve a concrete purpose that anyone can interface with. I think it has the potential to become a resource for those who might be curious about certain bands and have no idea where to start, or for those simply looking to sample bands in a quick, efficient manner! I can't guarantee that this thread will be of use in the long-run, but it's at least worth giving a shot! Nothing to lose in any case ; ) Alrighty, now for some general guidelines for posting your mixes! Rules: Choose any artist or band as long as they're Japanese. Try not to make your mixes too long. Personally, I would suggest keeping them somewhere around 10 tracks and/or 70 minutes, but go with whatever you'd like! You're making a "best-of", so while you should definitely include your favs., keep in mind that members who may not know the band could try your mix. So try to include songs from a variety of the band's releases. Think of your mixtapes as introductory samplers! It's perfectly fine to make mixes for artists/bands that others have already done! Try to include a short description of your mix or at least include tags of some sort! Have a blast sharing your favs and potentially exposing others to new stuff!

RETURN OF THE MIXTAPE!!!! Greetings Monochromians! The mixtape thread is back and in full effect! Some of you are already familiar with how this works, but for those that are new to this, here's how things work: You put together a collection of tracks that you want other people to listen to and you post it here and wait for feedback/ You can create a concept mix, you can create a mix to highlight a certain style of music, or you can even just put a mix together for fun! Feel free to be as creative as you want! Seriously, you can make a mixtape of ANYTHING you want. Yes, ANYTHING. You can make a mixtape of music from any country, any genre, any time period. As long as it's music, you're free to make a mix of anything you'd like! Now in order for things to go smoothly, here are a few rules that you need to pay attention to: RULES! 01. Your mixtape must consist of a maximum of ten songs or a length of one hour, whichever is shorter. This does not include SE's. 02. When posting a mixtape, be sure to include a title, tracklist, and a short description of what it's about. Cover art is optional, but nice. 03. You must review at least ONE mixtape before you post your own. A review should consist of at least 2 to 3 sentences and should require some thought about what you liked, not just "I liked it!" or "That sucked!". Failure to abide by this rule will result in the deletion of your mix. 04. Post both your mixtapes and your reviews in this thread. This time, everything will be contained to a single thread. 05. FUCKING HAVE FUN AND EXPOSE YOUR EARS TO NEW MUSIC!!! ENJOY! In order to kick the thread off, the staff has provided 4 starter/example mixtapes, so please choose one (or more) to listen to and review before you post your own!
