Do you still remember the time of two-deck radio decks, where you spent hours filling old-fashioned BASF or TDK cassettes with the greatest hits of the day, whether they were recorded or picked up on the radio? Or when we offered a half-hearted playlist of the best moments of romantic love to the better half?
All of this has disappeared physically, as audio cassettes are no longer used at a time when MP3 players dominate the market, not to mention that any smartphone can access digital music services such as Spotify, Youtube or Soundcloud, to mention some.
But that doesn't mean you can't miss mix tapes even digitally. And that's the proposal of SUAN (Stayed Up All Night), a website that is basically a virtual music cassette. The goal is to create a playlist, importing themes from Youtube or Soundcloud and share without any advertising, likes or comments. It is as personal a experience as possible for anyone.
And to mess with nostalgia, the cassette can be freely characterized by users, such as writing a message on the label, drawing a doll, and even choosing different skins from manufacturers, in a touch of perfectionism to simulate the golden age of the collections. Music Try the website, it's very fun and simple to use.
