Well, I definitely like the idea of a Peak Time theme the most out of the ones suggested. Driving would be cool as well, but again it's pretty loose. I could easily play the exact same set for both themes, as my peak time style is pretty driving.

Yeah, to me it seems like Peak Hours is the theme that allows for the most variety so far. Underwater may end up with a flood (pun intended ) of ethereal downtempo mixes, and the summery/rooftop party may have us listening to a bunch of different iterations of house/techno mixes. Maybe a Driving theme would have variety there as well.

Hopefully other people have some suggestions, or can give their thoughts/input on the current list.

Honestly, I haven't dished out a peak time mix in years so that intrigues me a lot.

The themes I come up with are quite a bit more abstract, like "where do I go from here?"

I thought we were friends, Nick

Yeah, the problem is, I'm gonna be gone for most of August and some of September, so end of September deadline will 100% not work for me, I'm afraid, if the theme will only be announced at end of July. Honestly mid November deadline would be best

I like underwater, personally, more than Peak Time; but I suppose my suggestion would be 'Deep South.'

Edit: I like driving, as well.

I'm definitely in!

As for a theme, mine is 'urbanity'. A bit open to interpretation - can be anything from the grittiness of a rust belt ghetto to a hyper-paced trip through a sprawling megalopolis, the hustle-and-bustle of city life, etc.

So last year's challenge ended on October 23rd. Do you think you could have a mix done by then this year?

I prefer that these mix series get back to the old MD trends for threads so like, for example, next time there could be a theme of like "music to pick grapes to" or "music for a halal meat market".

Also, there should be more rules, and in a bigger font.

Any other participants? (Jack?) Thoughts on the current list of themes?

All of the suggestions seem like doable themes, the question is what is everyone's favorite? I'd be interested in picking the one that has the most general support but if everything is pretty even I will just pick one at random.

Does "deep south" simply entail our own personal associations with the US' southern states? If so, that sounds quite interesting.

Maybe we can do something akin to the genre challenge for this one, and assign a theme to each person. Would ensure that we don't waste anyone's good ideas.
