My Spring Quarantine Mixtapes


picture by Nefeli Liouta


During last spring's corona virus precautionary quarantine, I walked a lot.

Everyday I would put on my coral shoes and hit the streets for one or two hours of intense walking.

I would also listen to a lot of music on my headphones and then make mixtapes for almost each and every one of these days.


There were two major categories while making these mixtapes:

At first, there were just songs I would choose out of Spotify's Discover Weekly so, not a lot of creation there.

But then I improvised a bit and made a few playlists of my own.

While in my 20s, I would make compilations inspired by anything but my 30s found me in lack of mixtape imagination.


So below you can see:

The Spotify Quarantine Specials, which are my own ones,

and,

The Spotify Quarantine Non Specials, which were small fruits picked out of Spotify's immense Discover Weekly basket.


Enjoy!
