Picking Your Concept

One of the most important aspects of making a mixtape is arriving at a concept you're happy with. Generally, try to think of a clever theme that lends itself to a clever title. While you may be trying to tell someone you love them, avoid the pitfalls of the cliché mixtape of love songs, think of a specific aspect you'd like to express i.e. a collection of songs that describe how it feels when they're around or not around.
