50ft Radio Volume Nine

Almost made it to volume ten at this point eh? This mix was actually one I made a few months ago and had all the intentions in the world to release it in the summer. That in mind I think the music included is mostly better suited for the summer months. The first side I compiled with a mix tape in mind, something to pop in while driving, the second side toned down for evening. Most of the music on this volume is older because I figured that newly released music gets enough love already and there is so much great music from the past that gets a little more obscure with each passing year so why not dig a little deeper from time to time.

Would anyone be interested in a best of the year list here on 50ft? I was thinking about putting one together this year because there was so much amazing music released this year. As for future mixes, I already have one brewing, another ambient one because you guys can’t seem to get enough of my quiet mixes. So despite this one being a couple of seasons too late I hope you find a few songs to enjoy in here.

Please, do not share or re-distribute the file, the reason I make these is to introduce great new music to anyone willing to listen in. If you find a song you enjoy then by all means look them up and show some love! Direct link to Side A zip. (peak inside) Direct link to Side B zip. (peak inside)

    Would be nice to have a Soundcloud page for 50th Mixes to listen by streaming or download free.

    Would love to but the couple times I have tried to upload I was stopped by audio scrubbing bots telling me I did not have permission. Its a shame but the way things are in the state of the recording industry. Still not understanding that this kind of viral growth is important. So I keep my head underground with these.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
