50Ft Radio Volume Eighteen

New year, new mix! How about that? I just cant give up on this series, I hold it to dear and still get emails about people discovering new music through them so it makes it all worth while. I’ve been sitting on this one for a while and finally had time between life at large to get it up. I figure this is a good way to start the year off. A year that I really am pushing myself to reconnect with the world of 50ft and see if I cant get the ball rolling again. So much unpublished content hiding in this laptop!

This episode is one I listened to a lot this past fall and slowly added the finishing touches to recently. I tried to work it out where it could loop and not feel like your missing a beat and beats are its emotional center this time around for sure. Just steady enough to turn up and dance to and just relaxed enough to sit back and enjoy or work to if thats the vibe. I quite like this music and encourage you to cherry pick your favorites and look into the artists closer if you find something you like.

Thats what this is all about after all! Spreading the word and sharing music and artists you guys may enjoy and connect with too. That said, here’s my usual mission statement on this series: This series is about the love of music and spreading that love with all of you. If you enjoy a song then by all means, look up the artist, buy their music directly from them, go to a show, shake their hand. The closer the better. They can’t keep doing what they love without us.

Links are below for direct download or the podcast feed (yes you need top copy and paste it into your player of choice to follow, but its a tidy way to have all of these in one place!) It is a mp3 file with chapters so you know who you are listening to but I have included a little screen shot of the playlist as well. Enjoy!

    Thank you for the playlist. Nice music to listen while working. Your podcast doesn’t seem to work, but I downloaded the playlist and created a playlist in Spotify.

    Sorry to hear the podcast feed wasn’t working for you, I thought I had checked it in most popular players and found it to work OK but I’m glad you were able to work out an alternative!

    Hi, I want to congratulate you for all your effort here to offer us wonderful pictures and music. I wonder if you could ”deliver” your musical experiences in other formats than mp3, FLAC for example. And maybe you could consider this change part of your Subscription project. Why just send visual experiences when you could go further and allow us to dream more? Why not?
    Thank you!

Any use of these images for any purpose other than this is a violation of these terms and anyone found using said images will be asked to either compensate the creator for doing so or be asked to stop using them immediately.

I ask that you refrain from using any images found on fiftyfootshadows.net to create physically printed material of any kind. This includes posters, photographic prints, fliers, etc. Under no circumstances may you make a physical reproduction without written permission.

These rules also apply for any artwork or imagery submitted and shown within this site which was created by an artist aside from myself. Any images submitted and shared as wallpapers are the property of the artist who created them and in the same manner as my images, you are asked to receive permission before using them in any way aside from their intended use. Any use of these images outside of for your own personal use as a desktop wallpaper image is prohibited without permission from the author of the image. Commercial licensing is available upon request. Please write with any inquiries.

When sharing images via your personal blogs I kindly ask that you link back directly to either the post the image was taken from or the base of the website at www.fiftyfootshadows.net and give a credit to www.fiftyfootshadows.net. Do not re-post full resolution desktop images anywhere without permission. If you would like to use an image for your blog background or something of the sort simply write to ask first. Support the artwork you admire! Also, it is greatly appreciated if you do NOT link directly to the zip files. This is more or less the same as re-posting them as it circumvents the tiny bit of support I ask of you which is to simply link back to the original post for others to enjoy the site.

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!
