Over the past months, there has been a lot of behind the scenes work to get Strangers in Stereo going. What started out as an optimistic idea has turned into a wonderful reality. Up until yesterday’s launch, the project has been a big mystery, but we’re finally ready to let everyone in on the secret. SiS is a collaborative effort by 20 of the best, most diverse blogs from around the world to publish content from each in one place. Kind of like a New Music Cartel for people who listen to more than one genre.

Read more about it here, and check out the SXSW launch party details here. As an introduction and a way of kicking things off, we’ve put together a mix featuring songs picked by each one of the blogs involved. Click “Read More” to see the tracklist and download the mix.
