A Mixtape For You #16: Tara Jane O'Neil

Even if they are not able to come and perform in Turkey, your fellow musicians and DJs from around the world, who have been here before have messages for you. Although the cultural life in country came to some sort of a halt, know that their music and thoughts are with us. Music is unity; it heals, gives hope, recognises no boundaries and is universal. So we start sharing their messages and the mixtapes they prepared especially for you. In hopes and dreaming of beautiful days…

A Mixtape For You #16: Tara Jane O’Neil

Dear friends, you have shown me some of the most magical times of my life during my stays in İstanbul. I thank you for that and hold you in my heart and mind during these troubled times. Here is a mix of songs I sometimes use to shake off the big bad, in whatever form it takes. I hope it can lift your spirits as it does mine.
