Happy New Year! I Made a Mixtape for You

Well, it’s a Spotify playlist, actually. My trove of lovingly sequenced TDKs and Maxells from years past now reside in cardboard boxes and storage closets.

I created the Time After Time mix of time-themed tunes to celebrate the debut of Upbeat Tempo wristwatches, which are a true passion project of mine. This music mix has been ready to share for over a year now. The watches, however, have needed to incubate for a little while longer. I have been researching, designing and developing them for over 3 years now. In true Upbeat Instrumental Style fashion, I make the quartz watches’ cases, bracelets, and dials using recycled and upcycled musical instrument parts. Intrigued? Stay tuned!

The first collection of limited edition Upbeat Tempo watches will debut in 2019.

You know what? Let’s get this party started already. I hope you dig the tunes, and I hope that the Spotify player works smoothly for you. I had such fun putting this playlist together. In fact, I found so much great “time” music that I created a second playlist, to be shared at a later date.

Happy New Year! May your time be filled with joy, music, love, art, and passion projects.
