HUGE Albums of the Year
Huge Mixtape is a chatroom that I was a part of at HUGE with a small group of music-enthusiasts friends sharing tunes all day. A few days before the end of the year, we had the idea to create a site that wrapped up our favorite releases of the year. What started as a small procrastination chatroom ended with a company-wide poll of Huge's favorite albums of the year. Take a look at (link: http://mixtape.hugeinc.com text: mixtape.hugeinc.com popup: yes).
The page's color scheme is dynamically tied to each album art's colors.
The page ended with a list of our top 30 albums. As HUGE's 700 person team is quite diverse as far as listening tastes go, thought I'd mention my personal top choices here:
- The Hotelier – Goodness popup: yes
- Joyce Manor – Cody popup: yes
- Explosions in the Sky – The Wilderness popup: yes
- A Tribe Called Quest – We Got It From Here popup: yes
- Danny Brown – Atrocity Exhibition popup: yes
- Vince Staples – Prima Dona popup: yes
- Joey Purp – iiiDrops popup: yes
- Balance and Composure – Light We Made popup: yes
- Hamilton Leithauser – I Had A Dream That You Were Mine popup: yes
- PUP – The Dream Is Over popup: yes.
The site also included a second page, showcasing the Mixtape group's 9 monthly mixtapes that we put out throughout the year.
The site quickly took off, accumulating upwards of 35,000 page views and making its way to both the #1 & #2 spots of Muzli. Check out the site at http://mixtape.hugeinc.com popup: yes.
