Plastic Platform is half a century old, and to celebrate we asked Machweo to create a mix for us that features many of our favourite acts sweeping across a wide-range of genres.

The Italian-based producer is a prolific character - check out his Soundcloud as evidence of this - but for now download this lovely melange of sounds below.

"This mixtape consists of all those songs that influenced me and my music the most in a year or so. There are no bounds of generes, sometimes i listened the most to beat music and sometimes not, the only thing I'm sure about is that the feeling I searched for in a very long time is melancholy and maybe in the end of that mix you can feel the same shit I feel each and every time I dive into music trying to take out something good. It doesn't work every time but I'm sure melancholy helped me in the act of writing my music and go beyond some strange moments of my life.
With this mix I'm trying to explain the same shit I felt all those times."
