Mercedes-Benz makes music the star!

Mercedes-Benz is famous for making cars, trucks, buses, and now … music.

The 50th edition of its ‘Mixed Tape’ download platform marks close to 10 years of providing music fans around the world with specially selected tracks covering everything from, hip-hop to folk, and jazz to indie rock.

After posting 600 hand-picked tracks, and more than 40 million downloads, it’s fair to say the exercise has been a success.

Artists on Mixed Tape #50 include New York-based folk rockers ‘Steady Sun’, German soul powerhouse ‘Miu’, French trip-hop from ‘Kognitif’, and indie pop from the Canadian group ‘Paradise Animals.'

Each Mixed Tape compilation features commissioned cover art, and for this 50th release the work was done by New York artist Craig Redman / Darcel Disappoints.
