Soundscape Mix #11: Happy Holidays

The holidays are full of dreadful music being pumped from every speaker in every commercial business. May the latest from Soundscape provide you with a pleasant respite of solace, a bit of shelter from all the pop star vanity and pseudo-comedic novelty albums that attempt to penetrate your earholes from every angle.

Soundscape Mix #10: Halloween

With tracks ranging from indie psychedelia and lo-fi, to instrumental hip-hop and industrial drum & bass, I took a chance, here. Some of these tracks will likely be outside of your boundaries of taste. Listen... if you dare.

Soundscape Mix #8: Orchestral Werks

Our latest free mix tape has a certain sense of refinement carried through tracks by the Cinematic Orchestra, the Quantic Soul Orchestra, Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra, and Casiokids. But, overall, this mix should be considered as seriously as a tuxedo t-shirt. Fun rules.

Music

Soundscape Mix #4: Zombies

Zombies are a lot of things to a lot of people. At once mystical and tragic, there is just something about them that transcends the horror film and video game genres.
