Blogophilia Re-posted: Volumes 1 and 2

Blogophilia refers to the series of mixes that were developed from promotional mp3s found on different music blogs.  As we’ve grown, we’ve come to rely less on other blogs and more on what we’re sent that we review or feature. We receive a lot of requests to repost old Blogophilia mixes, and have to kindly refuse because of space issues.  Well, that’s going to change.

This summer, we’ll feature 2-3 Blogophilia posts a week until we’re current. If you’ve followed this site, you’ll know we already maintain links for the five most recent mixes.  So, we’ll go volumes 1 through 24 for the summer. Mixes are up for one week, and then we’ll take them down.  Today, we’ll offer Volumes 1 and 2.

These first two volumes were actually experiments with the now-defunct site, Mixwit.  These were later mixed and featured on The Dadada as “Blogophilia” the official mixes of this site. This was a fleeting idea at the time, and the only mixes for 2008. Volumes 3 and 4 weren’t mixed until April and May in 2009, when the series became a regular feature. These first volumes are very different from what is posted today. These are shorter (most mixes take a full disc), and contain several tracks not recorded within the year or a year from the mix date. Volume 2 is the only mix with a theme–America.

Ah, but they exist… All you collectors have a week to grab these first two. Then these go back on the shelf!
