SHUFFLE UPDATE: July 8, 2019
The SHUFFLE UP’D EIGHT for this week…
I originally started these weekly ‘SHUFFLE UP’d EIGHT’ posts as a way to highlight a few tracks (ok, 8 tracks if you want to get specific) from the weekly reshuffling ‘HI54 WEEKLY SHUFFLE’ playlist—which I update every Sunday (including this Sunday) with a fresh batch of 54 tracks/artists for anyone not already following on Spotify—but then I started thinking:
What if sometimes the “shuffle up’d 8” got pulled from a different HI54 Spotify playlist? Y’know, as a way to highlight a differently themed HI54 Mix CD, because those playlists also get reshuffled regularly and are filled with tracks that can be found on Bandcamp too?
And since on the first of every month I update this ‘420 ≠ ALL DAY @ THE HI54LOFI’ playlist with 54 new tracks (and remove 54 old tracks to keep the overall song total at 420) I figured it’d be a good week to highlight the latest shuffle update for this ‘plays-all-day-without-repeating-a-track/artist’ HI54 Mix CD (♫ Spotify / Soundsgood):
And to check-off my self-imposed ‘Every Monday, You Gotta Prepare 8 Bandcamp Embeds for the Hype Machine Bots, Because Hype Machine Doesn’t Grab Spotify Tracks’ rule for this week, I’ve pulled out eight gems from this week’s shuffle update that I highly recommend you give a listen to below — and if/when you hear something you like, check the artist out further at one of the links provided:
And I guess that’s about that for the SHUFFLE UP’D EIGHT for this week’s shuffle update (and yes, you’re right: “shuffle up’d eight” does sound a lot like “shuffle update”).
Hopefully you’ll find a few new pieces for your personal headphone collection, whether that be from the 8 tracks highlighted above, or from one of the many other excellent tracks/artists featured in the full ‘420 ALL DAY’ playlist — which gets updated regularly if you fancy following along for future shuffles.
And speaking of future shuffles: I’ve started an ongoing Spotify playlist to keep track of every track that ever gets featured as a “shuffle up’d 8” + I compile monthly Playmoss playlists that feature all the Bandcamp tracks that were featured.
So, plenty of HI54-audio-exploring options to fire up in the the headphones this Monday… I will leave you to it (*ps- find even more headphones option HERE, if for some reason the above is not enough) \m/
