Picture 5.pngA mixtape, which usually reflects the musical tastes of its compiler, can range from a casually selected list of favorite songs, to a conceptual mix of songs linked by a theme or mood, to a highly personal statement tailored to the tape’s intended recipient.

Remember the days before digital music and MP3 players? When you used to make compilations of your favourite music on good old fashioned blank cassette tapes? If you don’t then your parents probably do.

Now you can get the same feeling but minus the ancient technology.

Put your favorite tunes on a handy usb drive!

Get it HERE!
