Muxtape - create and swap mix tapes online without the cassette

Muxtape

The end of the cassette has meant the end of the mix tape - or has it? Well no - you can now do it online with the Muxtape.

Yes, this is old-style music sharing for the modern age. All you do is sign up (takes about 10 seconds), upload your 12 favourite tunes, then pass out the link to your Muxtape to your friends. They just follow that link to hear your mix (or 'Mux' if you like). It's that simple.

It's a new service that's likely to see some improvements (like customising your tapes) in the near future, But for now, just enjoy a very simple (and free) idea.

Win DVD copies of The London Nobody Knows (1967) / Les Bicyclettes de Belsize (1969)

London The much-anticipated Optimum DVD release of The London Nobody Knows (1967) / Les Bicyclettes de Belsize (1969) finally hit the shelves this week. But if you want to save yourself some cash, you can win one of the five DVD copies we are giving away in our latest competition.

Two widely differing mini-features, The London Nobody Knows is a fascinating snippet of the lesser-known side of London in 1967 - think decaying housing and theatres, street entertainers, down and outs and street markets. Not to mention the sites of jack The Ripper's murders and the obligatory shots of swinging London - all overseen by veteran actor James Mason. Les Bicyclettes de Belsize is the complete opposite - a frothy swinging love story set to music on the streets and parks of late 60s Hampstead. And yes - there are bikes involved.

You can check out a full review at our Cinedelica site. Or you can just enter the competition, which is hosted on our Modculture website, at the link below.

Feature: Modern-day mod fashion labels

Dnagroove_blogThe more astute of you will realise that we run more sites than just this one. In fact, we have one that's been going for many years longer than Retro To Go - the Modculture website. And just published on that site is a new article covering the mod look of today, titled modern-day mod labels.

Essentially, it's a pick of the labels you can find online or on your local high street, carefully avoiding the target-branded rubbish you might see in various bargain bins and low-end retailers. I think you know who we are referring to!

Anyway, you might not agree with the selection of labels (for both men and women) on the site, but if you have any interest in the look, I'm sure you'll want to check it out. You can by following the lnk below.
