So for the past week I’ve been working on a playlist for the next Ludum Dare… one that would be long enough to play for the entire competition. One of my biggest distractions during LD is finding music to listen to; I’m either listening to the same artist for hours at a time or I’m just listening to the same song on loop forever.
I wanted to fix that by creating ‘Ludum Dance: Songs to Dev By’. This is about 810 songs long and features music in a variety of different genres, namely Glitch Hop, Electro-Swing, Vaporwave, Chillwave, Future Funk/nu-Disco, Video Game Remixes, Chiptune, Chillout, and all kinds of stuff! Sorry if there are any duplicates, but if you find any they should be far apart enough for it to not matter.
I MUST WARN YOU about the opening track though. I had the volume low when I made the audio for the intro/outro videos, so don’t turn them up too high or else the next song will be blasting… I’m sure you LD-ers wanna keep your eardrums, right?
You can find the playlist here:
Hope y’all enjoy!
I have to be honest though, I have no idea how long this mix actually is. YouTube used to display the total length of all the videos in your playlists, but for some reason doesn’t do it anymore. Oh well, hopefully it’s close to 48 hours long. Either way, I don’t care. If it’s too short pressing the repeat button isn’t that hard.
Now on to other topics.
I’m in! How surprising, right?
Anyway I’m gonna stick to the usual setup.
Java + Mercury + IntelliJ + Paint.NET/Photoshop + PixiTracker/Audacity, you know me.
I decided not to make a wallpaper for the event this time, but if you guys want one just leave a comment or something.
EDIT: Here’s a shorter URL to the playlist for easy linking (if you’re streaming, sharing it with a friend, etc): http://mix.radiri.us/
