Philly's Making Time club nights 10th anniversary playlist

This playlist has a sweet and pretty responsible: Nina Persson. I read the news (today oh boy) about the anniversary of Making Time, a kind of clubnights-parties-liverock-djthing taking place on Philadelphia for exactly 10 years. I wanted to know something more about it, I googled a little, and I landed on the website of RVNG Intl., the people behind Making Time nights. There I found a section named with the magical word: playlists. I was not sure of what doing with it... I wanted to taste some of the Making Time sound, maybe even making a mixtape of it, but the playlists looked crazily caleidoscopic and not always straightly linked to the MT thing. So I just started to check some of that music on Spotify and... ka-boom!... the blues took me. But it was a good blues. Actually, The Blues: a collaboration between an act called The Primary 1 and Cardigans' Nina Persson. Suddenly I fell in love with it. I facebooked the song to my friends and I decided that if someone at RVNG had the divine inspiration to make me know that, well, they would have surely deserved something from me, too. And the mixtape was born. So, here it comes the monster: a huge collection of songs taken from those playlists. I don't know if this is the real sound of Making Time party nights in Philly. Let's assume it is, at least partially. Take it as a Spotirama filtered (& Nina Persson inducted) sound of Making Time. It's a really crazy mix, with industrial boings boings, John Cale, indiepop little darlings, Phoenix, avantgardesque pieces, Grace Jones, incredibly obscure (to me) tropical & dance stuff, tons of remixes and even some absurd Italian pop tunes. Not all the RVNG songs are available on Spotify... but if you like the mix, go check their website for all the MP3s to download. 
Enjoy! And if you like some of this music, say thanks to lady Persson... :o)
