Bandcamp Radio on 8tracks - Volume 002

Bandcamp Radio - Volume 002 from HI54LOFI on 8tracks Radio.

It’s been awhile since I posted a mix tape on 8tracks (the last one being volume 1 of this ‘Bandcamp Radio’ series), and since I’ve had Bandcamp on the brain these last couple weeks, and since I didn’t have time to put together a new episode of Mix Tape Radio, and… well there are a lot of ‘ands’ I could add on, but really, it just felt like time for another selection of 30 fine tracks that are all available on Bandcamp. Because I like making mix tapes and because I think the only better way of buying an artists music is if you run into them in person and can hand them a fiver directly. And who has time to leave the house? And in this weather?

So press play and when you hear something you like, press the ‘BUY’ link and you’ll be taken directly to the artists Bandcamp page. Hopefully you can find a few worthy additions to your Bandcamp Fan collection.

(you can find the track listing, which is linked to where you can listen to each track on exfm, over on HI54LOFI.COM)

Up until now, I’ve kind of kept my attempt at making a ‘Bandcamp Radio' over on exfm. But since 8tracks lets you enter custom urls for where each track is available (i.e. so you can override the automated link that is created for iTunes or Amazon), I figured why not expand on the ways of sharing how much great music is getting put out on Bandcamp.

And with Bandcamp’s newly launched fan accounts, what better time than now to put up a mix of 30 great tracks / artists that are all available on Bandcamp. Almost all of these tracks can be added to your fan collection (I say ‘almost’, not because a few of the tracks are no good, but just because a couple of the tracks are free downloads so you can’t technically add them to your Bandcamp collection… but you can and should still get them). I’ve updated each track on the 8tracks player so that the ‘buy’ links all go straight to the artists Bandcamp page.

So press play and when you hear something you like, press the ‘BUY’ link and go support that artist directly on Bandcamp. It’s a win win, because at the same time you’ll be building a tasty collection that all your (cool) friends will be envious of. Isn’t that what it is all (partly) about?

I’ve also created a track listing for this mix, with each track linked up to where you can listen individually on exfm (where each track also has direct links to Bandcamp), and you can view that over on HI54LOFI.COM. Plus a bit more.

As the title of this mix kind of implies, these are my 100 favourite tracks of 2012 (more or less - no artists are featured twice and there are at least 10 or so tracks that could easily be swapped out with 10 that didn’t make it on this mix).
This mix could also be considered a combination of the favourite albums & eps list that I’m not going to put together. I originally thought that by just doing a really big mix, I would save myself the stress of having to order which albums were my favourites… but it turned that even narrowing things down to 100 songs was a lot of work and stress.
So please give it a listen, and if you think something else should have totally been on the list, feel free to let me know in the comments below. But just know that I already had to make some painful cuts just to get a list down to 100 (in fact, my trouble in narrowing things down to 100 led to me making a Spotify playlist featuring 212 of my favourite tracks). And you should also be aware that there are plenty of things that came out this year that I still haven’t listened to. I am only human.
Also, this mix is not in any real order besides an order that makes for an enjoyable 6 hour mix tape. So, that being said, press play and enjoy (and if you don’t enjoy at least 80% of these tunes, then I guess we have very different ear drums).
You can listen over on 8tracks, or you can just press play on the player below.

2012 - 100 Of My Favourite Tracks from HI54LOFI on 8tracks Radio.
UPDATE: I have also added the full list of 100 tracks, with links for each track to where you can listen to them on exfm, over on the HI54LOFI website. So if you fancy going through this giant mix in a more ‘jump around’ kind of way, I suggest heading over there and doing so (works best if you have the exfm browser extension)

HALLOWEEN | OCT2012

HALLOWEEN - OCT2012 from HI54LOFI on 8tracks Radio.

Here’s a halloween themed mix tape for you to put on while you put your face on. Or while you wait for the bus. Or, if you go to Alton Towers and it is like it was when I went on Monday… while you wait in a queue (we even had to queue to get special tickets to skip to the front of the queue).

Here are the artist links for you to check things out further:

And if 1 Halloween mix is not enough for you, you can listen to this year’s 8tracks Halloween mix as well as last years, one after the other, over here (and then a really big mix from Unholy Rhythms). And if that is still not enough Halloween for you, I put one up on Mixcloud last year.

FATE | SEP2012
