EPISODE 108 | THE MIX TAPE RADIO SHOW
In search of a routine that makes me more likely to get 1 HI54 Mix Tape out the door every week, I've decided to combine a few different music blog tasks together.
And since I recently got in the habit of doing a weekly feature called "SHUFFLE UP'D EIGHT" — as a way to highlight eight tracks from a recent HI54 Mix CD shuffle update — I figured why not stay in that themed pocket a bit longer and craft a Monday mix tape with the 8 highlighted tracks?
Boom. Multiple birds, multiple stones. Condensed into 1 blog post.
So, without any further ado-ing…
Here’s ‘EPISODE 108’ Of the always evolving/devolving MIX TAPE RADIO Show:
Episode 108 was created by shuffling around in the HI54 Mix CD ‘A NORDIC BREEZE’ — which is a Spotify playlist I keep updated with 95 tracks/artists coming out of the Nordic region, which I define for playlist making purposes as any project with some Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and/or Iceland roots (follow on Spotify or Soundsgood for future updates/extended listening) — until I come up with an 8 track mix that flows quite nicely in the headphones from on tune to another.
Listen on the player above or jump over to Mixcloud — and don’t forget to have a browse thru the listenable/clickable track listing below:

If you find yourself enjoying any of the above, there are some pretty decent odds that following HI54LOFI out on the internets would not be the worst use of one of your internet clicks today…
…and it probably wouldn’t be too bad of an idea to follow/shuffle thru the rest of the HI54 Mix CD that this week’s Mix Tape Radio Show episode was pulled from.
ALSO: HI54LOFI was accepted into the Mixcloud Select program, which means you can now support the making of these mix tapes & the artists included on them with a monthly subscription — if you’d be interested in something like that (or nobody would be mad at you if you’d prefer to make a one-time “thanks for the stuff” donation of your choice over here instead).
And, finally… if you hear something you like in this latest episode (or just in general out on the internets today), make sure to check out the people making the stuff you like out further and show them a little bit of love / support / appreciation (in whatever way you can) — because everybody wins if we all start sharing some more metaphorical coffees/beers with the people making the things that we enjoy (and maybe start giving a little less to the people trying to keep things shitty). Every little bit counts.
