The Signal: EP132

The Signal: EP132 – Exactly 45 minutes of carefully balanced tunes, glittering and perfect. For those that have ears to hear, we’ve got hip hop from the UK, electronic sounds from Mexico, cumbia from Colombia, a doo wop bad boy, Italian horror movie soundtrack music, dubstep, retrowave, and a bit of bedroom pop.

If that sounds good, download away, because this mix won’t be posted forever. If you’re interested in the tracklist, it’s in the mp3 itself, in the id3 tags. Or, if you sign up to be a member of our mailing list, The Tuned In, you’ll be among the first on the planet to know when a new mix is posted, and you’ll get a permanent archive link and the entire playlist, delivered to your inbox.

Wouldn’t that be nice? Don’t you think you deserve that? C’mon. Life is hard enough.

The Signal: EP131

The Signal: EP131 – 45 minutes of music curated to keep the blood pumping, the cell walls elastic and young, and little bloopy things to bloop around. This time out, we’ve got post-punk from Spain with Polish vocals, jazzy beats, rock, blues, funk from Estonia, electronic sounds and thousands of eyes.

As with all of our previous mixes, this mix will only be posted for a limited time, so download yourself a copy with no delay. The track list is embedded in the file itself, in its id3 tags, so you can look up and support the original artists.

And if you want the best experience, you should sign up to join The Tuned In. Members of that mailing list are the first people on the planet to know there’s a new mix. Plus, they get the playlist, a permanent archive link, and secret behind-the-scenes knowledge.

 

 

The Signal: EP130

The Signal: EP130 – Mesmerizing sounds from beyond the stars. You know. In the sense that we’re all from beyond the stars, made of star stuff, Big Bang-kinda business. We base all of our hyperbole on science around here. It’s 45 minutes of music from around the world, available for download for a limited time only.

This time out, we’ve got global bass/trap from Chicago, grime from the UK, religious music from Ghana, afrobeat from Nigeria, ska from Spain, retrosynth, vaporwave, rock tinged with depression, and a guided meditation. What more could you want?

The Signal: EP129

The Signal: EP129 – 45 minutes of music from around the world, shouted back at the world with technology.  A secret garden for those having a rough time. There are a lot of rough times going around.  We’ve got dubstep from the UK and movie information from Wisconsin’s past, bedroom pop from Paris and vaporwave from… the internet, I guess? We’ve got drum and bass and rhythm and blues, gospel and hip hop, beats and questions.

As with all of our previous mixes, the mp3 file is going to be available only for a limited time, so if you want it, grab  yourself a copy. The track list is embedded in the file itself, in its id3 tags, so you can look up the original artists. Alternately, if you want the best experience, you should sign up to join The Tuned In.

The Signal: EP128

thesignalep128

The Signal: EP128 – 45 minutes of music from around the world, put together for bird-brains and the avian-adjacent. This time out, we’ve got sounds from the Middle East, cough syrup music from Spain, vocals and single string magic from Africa, the sounds of tennis rackets, rockabilly from Denmark, dub from Hungary, the saddest blues beyond words, and an industrial song reworked into Dylan-esque melancholy. Let’s get those wings flapping!

As with all of our previous 127 mixes, the file is going to be available only for a limited time, so if you want it, grab  yourself a copy. The track list is embedded in the file itself, if you want to go hunt down the original artists— and I hope you do— but if you want the best experience, you should sign up to join The Tuned In.

The Signal: EP127

TheSignalEP127

The Signal: EP127 – Exactly 45 minutes of music to accompany an animated, murderous vapor cloud as it haunts hallways. You can download it and listen to it all you want. For as long as the power grid holds.

We’ve got video game-inspired grime from the UK, R&B experimentation, pop punk, cough syrup-infused hip hop from Spain, UK folk and African highlife combined at last, jazz,  race cars, Native American bass and more!

The mix will only be available online for a limited time. Maybe, by the time you’re reading this, it’s already too late. Sorry.  I don’t put the track listing here. You can right-click on the file itself and read its id3 tags, or you can subscribe to my mailing list, The Tuned In, the recipients of which are granted a full track list, a permanent download URL, and are among the first in the world notified when a new mix goes up.

The Signal: EP126

TheSignalEP126

The Signal: EP126 – 45 minutes of rainy day music, counter-programmed against the sun outside. Okay, except for the upbeat Latin jazz, that’s pretty seasonally appropriate. And the electro funk is pretty fun as well. Okay, I take it back. We’ve got all-weather jams.

You’ll hear electronic beats, grime from the UK, astro-pop from California, Peruvian- and Indian-infused dubstep, Latin jazz, music from West Africa, and Brazil.

Click on the image to go download this music mix for the home, or office, or home office, or escape shuttle. The file will only be available for a limited time based on the restrictions put in place by the file hosting site. The tracklist is visible in the file’s id3 tags.

The Signal: EP125

TheSignalEP125

The Signal: EP125 – 45 minutes of quiet-loud-quiet, with melodies and those things that go bing-bang-bong. Every song as perfectly matched as a sandwich & pickle. There’s a guarantee you won’t find anywhere else. Except in a deli, I guess.

This time out, we’ve got some Satanic gospel, vaporwave, punk, experimental hip hop, global bass & dancehall, Russians playing 50s-style rock, a calypso legend, Peruvian folk, Japanese dreampop remixed and more! And it does get noisy!

You can either listen right or, if you want a copy of your very own, you can download the mp3 by clicking on the image above or the link provided. It will be available for only a limited time so if you just got here, months after I type these very words, and it’s not there… well, life is full of disappointment, isn’t it? Savor your salty tears and be glad you feel anything at all, for infinities stretch before and after us when we’ll feel nothing. Also: check the id3 tags for the track-listing.

Or, you want the track-listing, access to a permanent download URL, and to be among the first people on the planet to know there’s a new mix, you can always sign up and join The Tuned In, a mailing list for fans of The Signal.

I think that’s everything you need to know.

So now you know.

The Signal: EP124

TheSignalEP124

The Signal: EP124 – If you were waiting for the 124th episode of The Signal mixes to join us, well, today’s your lucky day. We’ve finally made it. We’ve designed this mix specifically for individuals who like number sequences that increase by successive powers of 2.

It’s 45 minutes of music, available for download if you click the image or link above, or you can play it embedded on this page if you like. That’s new. We’re trying a new hosting solution this time out, so send along feedback if you like/hate it. I think the file will stay available for 30 days after the last time it’s downloaded, so if you try the link above and it’s not there… try being within a 30 day window of the last person who downloaded it next time. The tracklist is available in the id3 tags or to mailing list subscribers (on that, more below).

We’ve got English folk tunes and electronic beats, hip hop and soul, R&B and Latin-infused beats, garage rock, and bedroom pop.  Enjoy!
