Since the early 1960's teenagers became the defining factor in pop-culture. From rock'n'roll and surf to merseybeat, to yé-yé, - it was the young that chose the sounds and the heroes of their time. But the beat of teen spirit spread far beyond America, United Kingdom and France, crossing the borders of Western civilization and reaching
every place where records could be sold and listened to. Boys and girls took over the stage to change the sound of music forever.
This mixtape celebrates the teenage beat as a global phenomenon. From Italian, Bulgarian and Japanese girlie-pop to Brazilian 'Jovem Guarda', Hungarian rockers and Israeli mods - this is the sound of the greatest cultural revolution of the last century.
