I downloaded a bunch of your tracks throughout the year so don't worry! This really isn't a "best of" sort of thing, just tracks I liked that happened to fit the mood I was going for. Many of my favorites didn't make it in actually (Matt Nida, Infradead, dataline, pulsetrade, etc.).
I made an hour long mix of pleasant songs from Weekly Beats. I tried my best to follow along throughout the year after I stopped participating, but I'm sure there are some things I've missed. Weekly Beats was a very fun project for me and I'm happy to have participated (and congrats to those that made it the entire year).
Here's the mix:
Kedromelon - I Pray Thee...
Balloonbear - Blue Shift
Slunchy - Humgry (Sinn Shepp Stereolab)
Ryan - Well...
Chroma - In The Woods
Euphoric Noise - One Thousand Years From Now
Dot.AY - Drag Your Feet
Parallelis - Soul Incandescence
Mooninite - Uncertain Season (W/ RS2090)
Orinoco - Knifey Spooney
Ozda - Prime
Joe Galen - Box Clever
Minikomi - Take Your Time
Oceans Universum Amazonas - Repeating Numbers
Moxie - Temple
Gify - The 4th Dream
Lien - 2 Note Blue
little-scale - Amputation Fantasy Land
Drumurboy - Drop It Cat
Spaceman Fantastiques - Inner Tranquility (Delayed Sea)
BTS - 06-17-12
BlondieBrunetti - Lightning Roll
I acquired Steve Halpern's Spectrum Suite LP the other day (mid-70s ambient stuff), which I've been very much enjoying.
Also LX Sweat's tape is good.
Only 1/3 through the year and Weekly Beats is getting pretty difficult to keep up with. Still so many quality tracks, though. Here are my favorite tracks from April.
Really cool stuff. Thanks for sharing.
I don't really understand this site's conservative copyright stance in the first place. It seems a creative project like Weekly Beats should always err on the side creative freedom when dealing with copyright, but the policy as it stands is needlessly limiting.
I just made a post here of my favorite tracks from this month. Overall I was surprised by the high quality across the board (despite the decline in participation).
I haven't listened to the songs from week 10 yet, but I'm hoping to catch up tomorrow.
Thanks for sharing your stuff. I really enjoyed your Stalker-based pieces. They're probably my favorite thing that has come out of this project.
I really like that Severant album. Awesome stuff.
Suzanne Ciani's Seven Waves album. It's a bit on the new-age side, but has a lot of qualities I really like. In case you're curious.
Tangerine Dream, Cluster, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, Kitaro, John Carpenter, Arvo Pärt, Steve Reich, and a ton of weird 1980s italo & electro.
I thought I would share my 10 favorite tracks from January:
Frederik - Snow
Justin - Reality Disconnection
Lien - 2-Note Blue
Mooninite - You Said I Was The Country
Mattnida - Atomaton
Orinoco - Donald Chump
Chroma - In The Woods
Little-scale - My Neighbor Is A Serial Killer
Tristan Louth-Robins - The Silver Threads
R. Odent - Lagrangian Funk
