Tools of the Trade #2: DesignersMX

It’s necessary to have good tunes to work along to and these days, Spotify is where it’s at for me. If you don’t have it, download it now (the basic service is free). You can search for any artist or album and listen to it on the spot and even better, it’s a cinch to save your favorite songs in your personal library.

But even with the endless album recommendations and apps Spotify offers up, sometimes I just want a great playlist. That’s where DesignersMX comes in. Featuring custom mixes submitted by creatives, it’s a fun way to discover new music. The best part is that they each design album artwork to represent their mix and that alone really helps convey the mood.

Most DesignersMX mixes open directly in Spotify and I love that because I can then star my faves for my collection. The mixes are so eclectic and they have both ratings and comments so you can get a feel for what’s good.

Check out DesignersMX, I know you’ll discover some tunes (and album artwork) you love! And let me know what your favorite mixes are — trust me, there’s lot to get through and I’ve just scratched the surface.
