Impossible to mention them all. Tempting but impossible. Enjoy exploring the rest and filling the gaps. Have a listen to our MixTape!
To me, selecting and sharing these tracks with you is a way of cataloging the best of the best each month. It, also, somehow resembles the time I used to collect tapes. I gather something worth keeping and I display it just like I did with cassettes on my shelves back in the day. Fun fact: including this selection, the meter currently clocks around 3300 songs collected since the first mixtape. We’ve come a long way, baby.
Personally, I’m equally proud and amazed of the variety and the quality of the material gathered here. The sheer volume of it, reaching nearly 130 tracks, proves there are a lot of good things brewing in Poland at the moment, musically at least. I am hoping this playlist will get you to further investigate Polish sounds, past and current. Perhaps you’ll get to visit Poland in near future to experience the music at firsthand. If not you still have your headphones and this mixtape. Enjoy!
A dance music sensation from Poland. Bass Astral x Igo is a result of collaboration between producer Kuba Tracz and vocalist Igor Walaszek. The duo took clubs in Poland by the storm this year, selling out their tour and rocking the dance floors all over the country. Their musical background derives from rock and more heavy styles, which they beautifully translated into dance music. Their gigs are not to be missed, an experience where your dancing shoes will be badly needed! Good Vibe guaranteed.
Female artists often speak out about objectification and sexism in the music industry. Making music independently not only means taking back their voice and control of their own image, but also discussing important issues such as women rights, pay and gender gap, sexual and domestic abuse, refugee crisis to name few. The recent scandals surrounding sexual misconduct in Hollywood and #metoo movement have put the spotlight on women but this time for rather important reasons.
