Update: Introducing… Speed Of Sound (SOS)

In addition to the eclectic mixtapes we have (Eclectica Mixtape), we are introducing another series of mixtapes for our listeners. Comprising of solely electronic sounds, each mix will consist of songs from a specific genre each week. These genres range from Chillout to Trance, to cater to the electricheads out there (that includes us!). The new series will be named Speed Of Sound aka SOS, and it will be released fortnightly. We will be uploading the 1st Speed Of Sound mix up shortly, at our MyPodCast website. Do check it out!

Site Update

Just a minor update, we have added the mixtapes to the mypodcast.com directory, you can visit it at http://radioeclectica.mypodcast.com. In addition, we have added RSS feed links in the right column to facilitate listeners to subscribe to our mixtapes.

The first RSS is for the Eclectica Mixtapes. Simply click it and use iTunes, or any other media player capable of reading feeds, to download them. When we upload a new mixtape, they will be automatically downloaded for you in the future. Hopefully this will make it easier for listeners to grab the mixtapes off the web.

The second RSS is for this blog itself, Radio Eclectica. For the lazy ones out there who prefer to have updates automatically received.

An Apology

The site hasn’t been updated in awhile, and the live listening link has been dead as well. Time and bandwidth issues have been troubling, coupled with Mika’s really tight schedule for the past year (medical students have it real tough), and my further foray into other interests has caused Radio Eclectica to fade away. For this, we sincerely apologise. There have been encouraging comments on what we’ve done when Radio Eclectica was active, and as such, we have decided to re-open Radio Eclectica, but with a different format.

The toll on my personal bandwidth while hosting the server for the live radio means that we probably can’t restart the live radio, and response was lukewarm at best. Hence, we’ve decided to do away with the radio section for the time being.

We will continue with the Weekly OMG song list, with the same concept that we’ve applied previously. Basically, we’ll post 10 songs, regardless of whether they’re old or new, across various genres, that we’ve been digging.

Reviews will be written, in the same manner as before. We will post links to electronic mixes done by local DJs, across all dance genres. This is, of course, dependent on the mixes that the DJs churn out, hence it won’t be a regular feature, but rather one when the mixes are available. Another feature we might add on are links to various budding producers, such as their MySpace links. Hopefully readers can check out their sites and listen to their productions.
