The premise is simple – loads of people sign up, then on the 21st June everyone’s name gets put in a hat and you get matched up with 2 others. Then you make up 2 identical CDs of your favourite summery tunes, along with cover art, and post one off to each of them.
And in return, you get 2 random summer compilations back. I’ve already received one, and jolly good it is too – lots of ace 90s indie to make me bounce around.
Here’s my effort. Nothing particularly novel or special (as is the case with all my mixes – I’m such a crap DJ…) but these are tunes that are currently making my summer bearable.
