Each season needs a new soundtrack. It's for this reason that I started SummerSwap in 2011, asking friends to put together their Best Summer Mixtape Ever. Everyone then received burnt CD copies of everyone else's mixes and so that each participant received a package with 12 hours of new summer tunes to enjoy.

Since then music listening has become an online activity, so the Swaps have followed suit. Everyone emails a Spotify or online listening link, and I post their playlists to this very simple page. Mixes are also posted on our Facebook page.

It's a labor of love and something we all look forward to when our music libraries start to get stale. New friends are always welcome, so join in us!
