The Mixtape DJ Project is an initiative to address the undocumented, undervalued, and often overlooked history of mixtape djs. It combines oral history interviews, recordings, press clippings, photography, and more. This collaborative effort between mixtape collectors, scholars, curators, and djs introduces a range of user friendly search capabilities and analytic tools, that will offer a more in-depth look into the djs influence.
This research will result in:
- Mixtape Research Database (MXRD)
- an interactive map and timeline
- a series of onsite and online exhibits
- public programming – including panel discussions, screenings and performances
