VINYLMOON-05VINYLMOON-07VINYLMOON-06VINYLMOON-04

I think it’s safe to say these are the most deluxe mixtapes ever made. Music blogger Brandon Bogajewicz’s concept behind the Vinyl Moon project is simple: Subscribers get a new mixtape mailed to them each month, on limited edition vinyl, with beautiful packaging by a new different designer.

The images above are of Volume 3, featuring packaging designed by Clint Soren. You can see volumes 1 and 2 (designed by Joseph Veazey and Keith Negley respectively) below.

So if you’re a music lover, today’s your lucky day! We have two prizes for Booooooom readers: 1 set of volumes 1-3 (sold out) and 1 three-month subscription to Vinyl Moon. All you have to do is leave a comment below with the name of a song that you think Brandon should include on an upcoming mixtape! I’ll let him pick 2 winners on December 18th.

Download While You Can: All The Booooooom Mixes

At some point during the summer Soundcloud decided to remove most of my mixes from their site (I’ve since removed the rest). It’s a bummer because I wasn’t trying to make any money off of the music, I was just doing it for the fun of sharing something with you guys!

A few people noticed the mixes disappeared and tweeted about getting the mp3s so I’ve made a zip of pretty much all the mixes that you can download here.

Just a heads up, the last two are more rappy and have a lot of bad language.

I mix the music using Ableton which is pretty much cheating but it’s really fun. I might make a new one and share it through a service like Mixcloud. In the meantime grab those mixes; I don’t know how long I’ll keep them up, and probably won’t share them ever again.

Ones to Watch: An Interview with Atlanta-based Adam Alexander aka Demo Taped

Adam Alexander is one to watch. The 17-year-old Atlanta native is making music under the name Demo Taped, and while he’s no household name yet, people are starting to take notice. The first single off of his debut EP,  “I Luv U” is the definition of feel good music and has been stuck in my head all summer long.
