It's been a bit of a while, and unfortunately I'm still not in a position where I can make videos or tutorials, but all of that will come soon.
In the mean time, I've been using 8tracks.com a lot lately. For those of you who don't know, it's basically a social network based around musical playlists. Users upload tracks to the site and create playlists based on a theme or genre of their choice. They have an iPhone app, and an Android app is coming soon (something I'm looking forward to, being a bit of an Android fan). It's not a replacement for Spotify exactly, but I do enjoy the social aspect of it.
So far I've been pretty eclectic in the music I've uploaded, and feedback has been generally good, and I've also found a fair bit of new music using the service.
Here are a few mixes I've done, the first is probably my favourite, hence the spiffy embedded player.
Tracks I love to listen to first thing on a morning.
I listen to these a lot when I'm feeling a little down, or when I'm reflecting on things. There's quite a lot of piano in these songs, so maybe that's why (I love playing the piano when I feel like this).
For those days when you're avoiding reality.
Sometimes all you want to do is slip out of consciousness.
Forget cheesy pop tunes and dad rock, there was some fantastic music in the 1980s. Here's a selection of my favourite tracks by some great artists.
No doubt there will be more to come soon, both playlists and musical content.
