Mixtape’s first issue was created in April, 2012 by journalism students at the University of King’s College in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The original team included Jonathan Briggins, Samantha Chown, Hilary Creamer, Chelcie Soroka and Ryan Hemsworth.
In this prototype issue, Mixtape showcases Canada’s best new and emerging artists. Spanning almost 70 pages, Mixtape explores Joel Plaskett’s mad pursuit of Scrappy Happiness, a DJ’s backpack and the season’s most hilarious rapper tweets. We sit down with Mo Kenney for breakfast and discuss the impact of closing venues with Halifax-based DJ T-Woo.
