magnatunes mix

I've been wanting to do this mix since I started this blog. Okay, that means about a month ago. Nonetheless... I've been a member of MAGNATUNE for some time now: I used to buy albums (CD's? digital releases?) separately when that was the only option. Now, they've managed to step it up with a streaming membership and a download membership (my preference) that is affordable and allows you to get TONS of music. You don't even need an account to stream EVERYTHING that you want. By everything, I mean classical (I'm partial to the Medieval stuff), hip-hop, rock, ambient, jazz, ethnic, folk, eccentric, and downright not-fitting-a-genre. I am in NO way affiliated with MAGNATUNE, I just think that they are completely affordable and extremely ethical (being a musician myself, that is very rare in the music business). Okay, enough hero worship, on with the music.

This was a daunting task, to only pick things that were appropriate, in order to make a representation of a very small genre that is barely a portion of what I have from them. I managed to put in a bit of my favorite artists/releases, like Anne Garner (first and last songs), Robert Rich, Paul Avgerinos, and Rapoon. This allowed me many hours of sifting through tunes and artists. Not at all a bad task.

I think that overall, I managed to stay consistent with my style of mixes, keeping it for the most part very ambient. Going through so much stuff made me eager to do a mix with some small amounts of pulse. Time will tell if I need to scratch that itch...

Well, enjoy the mix, and pay them a visit, you will be glad that you did!
