ISO50 Playlist 6
I know it’s been a long wait but the sixth installment of the ISO50 Playlist is finally up. Sam Valenti IV — the man behind Ghostly International — was kind enough to put together this latest edition of the playlist. Here’s a few words on the selections from Sam:
“This playlist is beats-heavy, they feel right for uncertain times.
There’s also a tip of the hat to some 90’s nostalgia: a hint of Drum &
Bass and filtered House thrown in for good measure. All in all, it’s
a set of listenable wares, without a lot of tire spikes to get caught
So sit back and enjoy… And if you like what you hear, let us know in the comments.

Omni Trio is nostalgic for shure. Drum n Bass like this is in desperate need of a comeback. Thanks for the reminder. That track is incredible.

Stoked. I’ve been itching for a new playlist! Can’t say thanks enough.
Aleks says:November 5, 2009 at 9:27 pm
Great playlist, best one in a while. Only issue is that the “The Go Find” track is labeled incorrectly. It has a different name on the track list than it does on the actual playlist.
alex says:November 5, 2009 at 9:30 pm
Excellent. I have a lot of work to do tonight so it’s nice to have the soundtrack part of it allllll figured out
Kirk says:November 5, 2009 at 10:18 pm
love it… as always
Shelby White says:November 5, 2009 at 11:11 pm
Rad mix as usual. I second that Alex–I have several projects to work on tonight.
mango says:November 5, 2009 at 11:14 pm
wow, great songs, scott. i loved them.

There are a lot of great pieces on this blog right now (this cover being one of them). I love how you’ve transformed this site into a plethora of great design and found inspiration. That’s why this is my number one place for all things graphic design. Keep up the good work.
RA_OUL says:November 6, 2009 at 12:28 am
Another great playlist!…And the artwork…Wow! Scott you really need to settle down right now. You are just creating like a conveyer belt. You should really think about creating a book of all of your work someday.
Rent says:November 6, 2009 at 12:47 am
that Roscoe remix by Beyond the Wizard’s Sleeve…mmm. so good.
Rent says:November 6, 2009 at 12:48 am
oh and Phantogram is the new hotness. glad to see these guys are finally getting some publicity.
jheftmann says:November 6, 2009 at 1:48 am
great job on the cover art, Scott.
noran says:November 6, 2009 at 1:58 am
its been a while :)
Bas says:November 6, 2009 at 2:06 am
@Rent: I’ve never really liked that remix, because I liked the original so much. But I now think it’s actually really good.
Thanks for the very nice list!
chris says:November 6, 2009 at 6:10 am
I love playlists!
Todd says:November 6, 2009 at 6:29 am
Nice. Especially digging Memory Tapes.
Andre Obin says:November 6, 2009 at 6:41 am
Nice, work from Arovane that I had not heard!
Jarred says:November 6, 2009 at 7:03 am
Thanks for sharing, y’all. This is refreshing….my library was getting a bit stale.
Luke says:November 6, 2009 at 7:07 am
Bear in Heaven – Ultimate Satisfaction is ridiculous. I know everyone has different tastes in music but this track is just insane for me.
R M Pinti says:November 6, 2009 at 7:08 am
Pretty awesome. I’m loving Phantogram but where can I find more music from them?
david says:November 6, 2009 at 7:30 am
Just to reflect what others have said, ultimate gratitude for putting together this compilation, my creative juices are flowing.
Tardlovski says:November 6, 2009 at 7:31 am
scott, i have noticed as of late that alot of your design work seems to be based off of amazing photo’s by, i’m assuming, other unnamed artists. i love image mining, and it gets me psyched when i do find an amazing image to use, but i’m wondering if you feel a little bit of guilt using another person’s split second vision? i’m not asking in a critical way, more to be curious about your process and that of others. i know i always have this guilt in the back of my mind and for me, depending on the source of course, it can be a little hard to overcome and actually let it go and be seen.
jesse says:November 6, 2009 at 7:40 am
great timing, i was in need of some new music. And this album cover is bar far my favorite so far.
Justin says:November 6, 2009 at 9:13 am
Great cover, great music. Thanks Scott.
justinsloe says:November 6, 2009 at 9:25 am
this is helping me thru this Friday morning
nice choices, Sam
jesse says:November 6, 2009 at 9:26 am
the only thing about the cover is the middle shape not having right alignment with the other two…is this accidental or on purpose? i keep looking at it…
jesse says:November 6, 2009 at 9:27 am
by right alignment i mean “correct.” its the left side that is skewed
Robert Huston says:November 6, 2009 at 10:03 am
oh, the go find! I love those guys! Can’t wait to take a listen!! Thanks for being one of the most interesting sites on the net!
Martin says:November 6, 2009 at 10:24 am
This mix is exactly what my brain needs to create some nice designs :) Keep up the mellow groovyness Sam… btw. thanks for bringing back the D N’ B!

The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a star.

That first track by Phantogram is giving me an eargasm. Great list. Great great list.
Hardleers says:November 9, 2009 at 4:10 pm
Have been too busy to check the site regularly but I’m glad I did! Again (!) some wonderfull new discoveries of music and reminiscences of old ones. For the people liking this stuff (esp phantogram and memory tapes) I would recommend listening to The Temper Trap as well… great stuff!
Hamsen says:November 9, 2009 at 11:15 pm
Great playlist again!!!! That bear in heaven track is chilling.
Ben says:November 11, 2009 at 7:15 am

Hi Scott, could you please please please create a desktop wallpaper in 1920x1200px of this cover?
I like it so much!

Thanks for sharing this music playlist. Is there any way you could republish your music player swf to not include traces? I am listening to your playlist through your player while I’m working on flash development stuff and it’s flooding my Flash Tracer plugin with traces from your music player (about 100 a minute)
I know that’s sort of a specific request, but if you have the fla you can “Omit Trace Actions” in the movie settings.
Thanks again for the playlist. Take care,
