A free dance music mixtape series where the DJs get paid.
Mixtape Club is a new model to fund and create bespoke standalone mixtapes from DJs and producers.
We commissioned six mixtapes between January & June 2021 by some of our favourite DJs. We’re going to commission six more between February and July 2022.
Each act is paid £150 to plan and record a dance music mixtape however they please; there’s no fixed format and there are no rules.
They are also given a £150 budget to create original artwork to accompany their mix, in collaboration with a visual artist or designer of their choice.
Everyone’s on the guestlist: each mixtape is available to stream and download for free. But if you want to support Mixtape Club then you can pay in on the door by pledging £5 a month via our Patreon.
If we start to generate more than our £300 budget each month in pledges, then the extra money is added to a pot and distributed evenly between all DJs at the end of the season. This means that every DJ who contributes will benefit equally from the success of the project as a whole.
