…to Decorated Playlists, this website is dedicated to the close relationship between music & design.
This site is put together by Me (web designer and former DJ & record collector - Simon Foster) I have always enjoyed passing on my knowledge of music, but now that I no longer DJ I need a new outlet for this.
I have previously dabbled with the combination of design and mixtapes/playlists on (the now defunct) Bones Brigade Dj's blog and also here in a tribute I made to Serge Gainsbourg, but I wanted to take it a step further. The final piece of the jigsaw came to me after I contributed a mix to the fabulous designers.mx project. You can think of each playlist as an art-directed blog post, but with music instead of words.
This site uses the latest in HTML5 and CSS3 and will not work fully in old lame browsers - sorry. Thanks for having a look around and enjoy your stay.
I would like to make it clear that none of the tracks on this site are available to download. I do not encourage illegal file-sharing. All MP3s are taken from original CDs or recorded from my vinyl collection. Wherever possible I have linked the title of the track to an external site where it can be purchased.
If you would like me to remove any of the tracks on this site please contact me and I will of course take them down.
