If you're anything like us at Speakers in Code, the music tips you take most seriously are the ones that come from musicians themselves. That's why we started this feature, 10 to Spin, which includes a carefully crafted mix of songs by our (and your) favorite artists. We're giving bands free reign to design playlists based on a theme, featuring both cutting edge tunes and favorite, old standbys.
