About Mixtape Club

A free dance music mixtape series where DJs get paid.

In the absence of local clubnights, DIY parties and grassroots raves, we want to do our bit to keep booking our favourite club acts and keep supporting DJs this year — both financially and artistically.

We’re commissioning six mixtapes between January & July 2021 by some of our favourite DJs. This will be the first season of Mixtape Club.

Each act is paid £150 to plan and record a dance music mixtape however they please; there’s no fixed format and there’s 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 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 the 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.

Mixtape Club is a non-profit project and a work in progress. This is a new model to see if we can generate some grassroots support for DJs while clubs are closed and parties are on pause.
