GIVEAWAY: Win a copy of Ministry of Sound’s four-album 80s mix!

My first introduction to the institution that is The Ministry of Sound was through their ridiculously well-curated mix CDs. I’m pretty sure even my parents had a few copies of some early chill-out mixes, and they’ve remained a staple in my music collections ever since.

Their new collection is a four-album 80s mix, and it is BOSS. From funk to hip hop to soul to pop, this is one helluva playlist. The PERFECT soundtrack to any house party, road trip, and just everyday life in general.

The best part is that we’ve got THREE to give away to you lucky readers, woohoo!

Entering is simple:

  1. Like Howl & Echoes on Facebook and
  2. Email giveaways@howlandechoes.com with “MINISTRY OF SOUND” in the title and your name

That’s it!

We’ll draw the winners on Wednesday March 25.
