[Musicophilia] – The Complete ’1981′ Box Set
All nine mixes from the ’1981′ Box Set are now available in full! That’s hundreds of key artists, the famed and the forgotten, from the apex of post-punk and the ascent of new-pop, synth-pop, and related artforms. Links to every mix are below, at the “more…” link. Don’t be shy–say hello, let me know if you dig what I’m doing here.
Roughly five years after I began the project, I can definitely say it’s been a satisfying endeavor, one that’s allowed me to talk with many interesting people from all over the world, including a number of the musicians who created the music (and to whom all credit is due). As much fun as it was to produce hundreds of hand-made/folded/stapled/printed physical box sets–making them digitally available at Musicophilia has been a relief, and hopefully been of use to the hundreds of people who were left on a waiting list for the box that I was never able to get to. So please, enjoy them, collect them all, check out the ongoing ‘Briefcase’ posts at Musicophilia Daily from the box set’s mp3 disc; keep your eyes peeled for new 1981-themed mixes; and if you dig it, share them with friends and help spread the word–I still love this music, and I know there are plenty of people who haven’t heard it yet who’d love it, too. Please support the artists involved by buying what you enjoy, when it’s in print.
