NEW MIXTAPE! We're starting the Autumn series with this one, and our collaborators set the perfect mood to go along with it. Building another bridge with a fresh and creative project, we've invited the stylish people at BLACKTHUNDER to curate the tracklist. Beware, it is heavy.
Here's what André from BLACKTHUNDER had to say about the Mixtape:
Feita a selecção de faixas, claro que não poderia deixar de incluir nesta mixtape a música que deu origem ao nome da marca em 2008, "Black Thunder" dos Doomriders. De resto, optei por fazer uma selecção de algumas das muitas influências musicais que me rodeiam no dia-a-dia e que directa ou indirectamente têm efeitos no meu trabalho.
After choosing the tracks, I couldn't leave out this mixtape the song that gave origin to the name of the brand in 2008, "Black Thunder" from Doomriders. As for the remaining tracklist, I opted for a selection of some of the many musical influences that daily surround me and that direct or indirectly have an effect in my work.

New podcast, a thematic one this time around, covering a genre of music we don't really touch that much but has had a deep influence in everything we do, down to the very name of the label.This episode's tracklist was entirely selected by Juicy's very own CEO, so expect a lot of opinions and personal insight on the tracks. It's a long one but stick around to the very end cause it will surely be a fun ride.

Last mixtape of the Summer series, this time curated by our dear friends and punk-hardcore lovers from Nós Contra Eles blog. It's a Portuguese blog focused on hardcore, with loads of fresh original content being published each week, so keep an eye out.
Here's what they had to say about the Mixtape:
Não é novidade que o Nós Contra Eles é fã da Juicy Records, ou é?
Foi com um sorriso malandro na cara que nos colámos ao projecto das mixtapes, por acharmos que é uma daquelas coisas eternas: uma música será sempre nova para quem a ouve pela primeira vez e mais certo que isso, só mesmo a certeza de que ninguém nasce ensinado.
Para além de ser uma boa playlist para tocar a caminho da praia (ou do supermercado), esperamos que seja também o ponto de partida para conhecerem novas bandas. A primeira parte, escolhida pelo André, vai de 1976 a 1983 e foca-se um pouco na origem do punk e nos primórdios do hardcore americano.
A segunda parte, escolhida pelo Tiago, vai de 2000 a 2012, focando-se mais na cena americana actual desde o começo da última década. Claro que entre 1983 e 2000 se passou muita coisa, mas se dessemos tudo de bandeja, qual é que era a piada? Esperamos que gostem!
A song will always be new to someone who listens to it for the first time.
Apart from being a good playlist to stream on your way to the beach (or the supermarket), we hope for it to be a good starting point to getting to know new bands.
The first half, chosen by André, goes from 1976 to 1983 and focuses a bit on the origins of punk and the beginning of the American hardcore. The second part, chosen by Tiago, goes from 2000 up until 2012, being more directed to the current American scene, from the beginning of the last decade. Of course, between 1983 and 2000 a lot of stuff happened, but where’s the fun if we give you everything on a platter? Hope you like it!

This third episode has the brilliant collaboration of Joel, a young adult that shares with us a certain diversity (healthy or not we'll let you decide after listening) when it comes to musical taste. He's chosen the totality of the songs this time around, adding some personal stories and very juicy details.

For our second mixtape we reached out to the team of Nervos, an online project with a fresh concept that has been giving insight to some of the best Portuguese bands around.
So they kept loyal to their concept and presented us with a great showcase of talent coming from Europe's last piece of land before the Atlantic.
Here's their words:
A nossa mixtape conta só com artistas portugueses. Já que nos dedicamos a eles, não fazia sentido ser de outra forma.
Pode ser a mixtape mais esquizofrénica, mas fazia parte do nosso objectivo quando aceitámos o convite para a fazer: não ligar a estilos ou géneros musicais, escolher músicas de que gostamos, de bandas em que acreditamos e que merecem ser divulgadas.
Our mixtape counts only with portuguese artists. It wouldn't make sense any other way, since we are dedicated to them.
Maybe it is the most schizophrenic mixtape, but that was part of our objective when we accepted the invitation to make it: disregard musical styles or genres, choosing songs that we like, from bands in who we believe in and that deserve to be divulged.
Thanks to Nervos and Raquel for accepting our challenge and for bringing some of Portugal's finest tunes to our attention. More Summer goodies to come soon.
