Mad Men Mini-Mix

Mad Men is an television drama series set in the early 1960s at the fictional Sterling Cooper advertising agency on New York City's Madison Avenue. The show centers on a high-level advertising creative director, and the people in his life in and out of the office. It also depicts the changing social mores of 1960s America.

The show has received widespread critical acclaim, particularly for its historical authenticity and visual style. It's jazzy, early 1960s-era soundtrack in particular effectively places Mad Men a very stylized context and gives it flare.

The mix below is inspired by both the show and the era, and draws on a wide range of both classic and modern artists.
