Music Library: Digital Mixtape

Feb 7, 2014

Comments Off

We’re thrilled to have Christopher Samms guest mixing for us this month.

 

Christopher is a Freelance Graphic Designer living and working in Winnipeg. His designs are minimalist and striking, and impossible not to love! In just a few short year’s, Christopher has built up an impressive portfolio. He’s particularly sought after in the music industry, designing album art for bands such as Royal Canoe and posters for clients like local concert venue Union Sound Hall. Most notably, while working at Clark+Huot/Cocoon, Christopher was part of a small group that developed the creative concept and tagline ‘We Speak Music‘ for the 2014 Juno Awards, which will be held here in Winnipeg next month. The tagline so perfectly sums up the significance of music in our city’s culture.

 

Today’s playlist features lively rock and indie pop music. All with a strong beat. All pulled from Christopher’s personal record collection. He also designed this gorgeous cover art for us, so while you’re listening to this playlist, do yourself a favour and check out his online portfolio at www.christophersamms.com.

Music Library: Bringing the Heat

Jan 10, 2014

Oh (cold) snap! It’s been a harsh winter out here in Winnipeg, and a quick scroll down our Facebook and Twitter news feeds tells us we’re not alone. We need a break. A break from talk of ice storms and windchill factors and polar vortexes. A break from Tweets comparing Winnipeg temps to those of Mars.

 

Not all of us have the luxury of jetting off someplace warm, so we’re “Bringing the Heat” to you. Amy (that’s me!) has compiled 12 folky tunes that’ll instantly transport you to your favourite outdoor music festival.

Music Library: The Best is Yet to Come

Today’s playlist comes from Braden Alexander.

 

Braden grew up in Winnipeg and is well-known in the area for co-creating (and creative directing) SANDBOX, an award-winning fashion and culture magazine. While going for his Master’s of Publishing in Vancouver, Braden kept his connection to the Prairies alive by blogging with a colleague over at Poster (www.thisisposter.com), a Winnipeg-based blog spotlighting creative talent. Braden has since moved out east (he currently resides in Toronto) to further his dreams of working in the magazine industry. He’s currently teamed up with Precedent as their Associate Editor.

 

In addition to his broad scope of work in communications and publishing, Braden is quite the playlist mixer and has been known to throw some of the best house parties and event launch parties this city has ever seen. Winnipeg hasn’t been the same without him.

 

You can shuffle through a selection of Braden’s playlists here, but first, have a listen to this holiday party playlist he’s put together exclusively for EQ3.

The days of mixed tapes and burnt CDs may have passed, but sharing good music will never grow old. So we’re excited to bring you Music Library, a monthly playlist series bringing you songs both old and new. We’ll be mixing things up each post, inviting different folk from across the country – including a variety of designers, musicians, artists and brands – to share their music taste with us.

 

Today, we thought we’d ask someone close to home. Paul (EQ3′s Senior Graphic Designer) was an obvious choice. He loves to play his music loud for all to hear.
