"WHAT ARE WE DOING?

On July 11th 2009 two drivers will depart on a 10,000 mile drive from London to Mongolia, crossing Europe, central Asia and culminating with a dash across the mighty Gobi Desert. We are raising money for Save The Children, in association with the Mongolian Charity Rally. Our specially equipped off-road vehicle will be packed full of educational materials and clothing to donate to the Mongolian people. We will also be donating the vehicle on arrival.



WHAT IS THE MONGOLIAN MIXTAPE MARATHON?


We’re asking DJs from all over the world, be they big names or bedroom DJs, to upload mixes for us to listen to all the way to Mongolia. We estimate we have 800+ hours driving time and we’re intending to listen to dance music non-stop all the way there! Each DJ will be asked to submit a one hour mix of their favourite tunes and also make a small donation (of at least £1). We’ll then put all the mixes together and listen to them non-stop, all the way to Mongolia!

Once we depart, the mixes will be podcasted to the world as a lasting record of your mixing prowess. They’ll also be hosted on this site for at least a year after we return. So it’s a great place to keep your mixes for others to hear too!"



The trip is sponsored by Ableton, and entering your mix gives you chance at winning a copy of Ableton8...
