SHUFFLE UPDATE: September 2, 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 also be found on Hypem friendly listening sites like Soundcloud/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 jukebox (♫ Spotify / Soundsgood):
And to check-off my self-imposed ‘Every Monday, You Gotta Prepare 8 Bandcamp (or Soundcloud) Embeds for the Hype Machine Bots, Because Hype Machine Doesn’t Grab Spotify Tracks’ rule for this week, I’ve pulled out eight gems 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.
Which means there’s plenty of HI54-audio-exploring options to fire up in the the headphones this holiday Monday… so I will leave you to it (*ps- find even more headphones option HERE, if for some reason the above is not enough) \m/
