Inspired by The Team’s new website for compilation album brand Now That’s What I Call Music, we tasked the design community with a particularly melodious Voxpop for this week’s issue.
The question, which you can find on p11 (DW 21 April), reads ‘The new Now music website, designed by The Team, allows you to create your own music compilations. What three tracks would you put on a compilation and why?’
Build business director Nicola Place, artist Stuart Semple, Onedotzero creative director Shane Walter and Form partner Paul West all rose to the challenge, picking just three tracks to pop on their compilation.
You can hear the bizarre result – and Design Week’s first Spotify compilation (drum roll please) – by clicking here. To create an intriguing puzzle, we’ve left who selected what anonymous, so you’ll just have to guess. Boring people – or those wanting to check their answers – can flick to p11 on this week’s issue to find out who was behind each tune.
Poor Spotify couldn’t quite cope with our designers’ requests so the Carter Takes a Train by Roy Budd/Cassius’ Mister Eveready mix has been split into two tracks and Sick Porter by U-Ziq, which we just could not find anywhere, features below.
