The Den , Mumbai
Mixtaped! is a weekly ‘micro’ party conceptualized & curated by Reji. For more than 3 years now, The Den (Bandra, MUMBAI) has been hosting the party on its Wednesday nights. It has been the only night in the country (where besides DJs) established singers, musicians, scenesters & nightlife industrywallahs too get a night to take control of the decks & dish out their favourite music for you in an intimate environment. Every Wednesday night, each handpicked artist would spin a DJ set or prepare a playlist of minimum 2 hours for the evening, as per his/her convenience. The music on each Mixtaped! night gives you a closer perspective in understanding the featured artist’s all time & current favourites, influences, sound and personality.
