Hello, Music fans and welcome to another Lightseeker Music show; this time, though, I'm switching things up just a bit and delivering some freshly
baked, oh so aromatic, Ultra Lounge music from some of the best new artists in this much overlooked genre of music. Remember the opening themes for
the "Austin Powers" movies? Ultra Lounge! and the Peter Sellers film "The Party" from the sixties or the original "Casino Royale" also from the
late sixties? Bang! Ultra Lounge again!
Now, some people have come under the mistaken idea that Ultra Lounge and Exotica, another name for the same type of music, are nothing more than
Muzak, you know elevator music; these peoople would be very wrong. True Ultra Lounge or Exotica have a distinctive beat and flavor to them, that make
them, much more, refined and juicy than mere Muzak;
plus, all of the material you hear on this show are 100% originals by the artists who created them.
So, on with the show! First off you'll notice that the first tune up is really Electronica but it has an Ultra lounge feel to it so I used it to open
up the podcast; It's entitled:
"When the Robo-B Boys Just Kill It" By The Polish Ambassador
and can be found along with the rest of his new cd, "Fantasmal Farm"
his website, Here
Next up is, "Cocktails in Space" by Dana Countryman
and is available at Comfort Stand Records.
track is one of many on the "2 Zombies Later."
Up next is, "Bossa-Super-Nova" By Mr. Fab
which appears on the "Interplanetary Materials"
Compillation also at Comfort Stand. I
accidentally misssed mentioning this one on the podcast, so my apolgies to Mr Fab for that slight.
The following tune was, "Launch Patterns for the Space-age-girl" by LowLiFi,
& is also on the "Interplanatery Materials
at Comfort Stand. Check out the other tracks as well.
After that we heard, "Alien Pops Trilogy - featuring Midas" by Forty-One
, another tasty but slightly "different" offering from Comfort
Finally, the closing tune was, "I Came From The Coldest Star" by Archbishop Jason Polland
another offering from the "Interplanatery
My thanks to Wil Wheaton at Radio Free Burrito for reigniting my passion for Ultra Lounge and Exotica. You may not hear it a lot but you're doing
good stuff and many, many more people are listening than you might think. Good on ya buddy!
A big muchas gracias to the folks at Comfort Stand for making this music so freely available to me and to you.
Also my thanks to The Polish Ambassador for kindly allowing me the use of his track "When the robo-b-boys just kill it."
I also want to send a thank you to the kind folks at Earth Station 1
my use of all the commercials and wav files you heard tonight.
Finally, thank you for listening; if you receive half the enjoyment from listening to this show as I did putting it together, then I consider it a
Note: You may have noticed that the sound quality of the finished product left a bit to be desired. I apologize, but as it turned out the music and
all of the associated wav and other sound bites made this a fairly massive file, megabite-wise, and some compression of the file was required to get
it under the 24mb limit here at ATS. I hope that the quality of the music itself somewhat makes up for this but I do understand it may affect the
pleasure of listening.
May I suggest that you just close your eyes and imagine that you are travelling through deep space and listening to the show over sub space radio with
all of the accompanying hisses and snarls of space making itself heard along with the transmission. Hey, it works for me!
