ColdGlider is your humble "Audio Engineer" at Radio Sidewinder, which means he messes with things to try to make them sound better. He also handles Artist Relations, so if you're an independent artist who would like their music to be heard across the galaxy, please use the Contact Form to get in touch!
I’m pleased to announce that the Radio Sidewinder broadcast will now include music from Keerah, including previous work done as Endomorphin!
Hailing from Moscow, Keerah produces music from a variety of EDM genres which run the gamut from House to Chill to Progressive. Some with vocals, some instrumental, and some with a distinct retro feel which conjure up welcome images of galaxies we may have explored in the past.
Keerah’s warm mixes will draw you in and help keep you “in the zone” while you’re out in the black.
In addition to being talented musically, Keerah is also a highly skilled and successful video artist! See for yourself over at www.keerah.com
I have to admit that I literally found myself dancing in my studio seat while I listened to Keerah’s tracks on SoundCloud… which is something, dear reader, that I assure you happens very seldom and that you never want to see. But it was so fun!
If you find Keerah’s music having a similar affect on you, then please drop a listen and a like over on SoundCloud.
Thanks to Keerah for allowing us to share this uplifting and immersive music with you across the galaxy!
A month in the making (phew!) my interview with four members of the Distant Worlds Expedition Prospecting Team has been included as the bulk of this 22-minute extended edition of the Distant Worlds program.
A brief summary of Waypoint 21 is included, where I mention the Candyball Enduro Rally #3:
Congrats again to the winner! 😉
Here is a photo of one of the ship bridges made at base camp:
Notice the SRV headlights on the left-hand side!
Following the waypoint summary, the long-awaited Prospecting Interview from way back at Waypoint 17 commences, as I am joined by the following commanders:
Anuranium’s Rock Rats video was mentioned by Michael, so here it is:
If you are willing and able to provide data entry services, you can assist the Distant Worlds prospectors right from The Bubble! The Rock Rats are looking for Scribes to assist with adding data to “The Monster”, a Google Docs spreadsheet which tracks the findings of prospectors galaxy-wide. Contact any of the commanders above if you’re interested in helping!

CMDR iDragox would like to propose a challenge to our listeners to find the Very Rare material at Phipoea CD-F c26-1985 – Planet 1. This planet is the home of the “Colossus Crater”, which he discovered back near Waypoint 13. Try as he did, he was never able to find the VR. If you find it, please let us know in the comments below!!!
From iDragox’s personal travel log:
Phipoea CD-F c26-1985
Home to Phipoea’s Edge, a base camp I found on 2/24/3302. It lies on the edge of a 22km tall crater named Colossus. It has very light gravity at .06g, and has a radius of only 219km. My favorite find yet! Met up with CMDRs Zelryn, and Jerek for some photos and streaming. Wont forget this one.

Congratulations to the commanders who have already made it to Beagle Point! You are now part of a landmark event in our galaxy’s history!
Episode Five of Distant Worlds was written, voiced, and produced by ColdGlider.
Special thanks to CMDRs Lord Fedora, Nexolek, iDragox, and Michael Darkmoor for the very interesting (and fun!) interview via Radio Sidewinder Remote Transmission Services.
These hard-working prospectors and scientists endured over two hours of conversation and questioning from yours truly. Once I removed an hour and forty minutes of iDragox cursing, we had about twenty minutes left to broadcast (I kid, I kid.)
It’s not every day that Radio Sidewinder is given permission to broadcast seven full albums worth of excellent music, but today we are excited to announce that this has indeed happened: Echo Grid is now on Radio Sidewinder!
Echo Grid is the music of Chris Anderson from Spijkenisse, The Netherlands. It’s a transcendental experience to listen to any of these albums on their own, let alone while exploring the wonders of the galaxy in Elite: Dangerous. This majestic and sublime music makes a perfect accompaniment to your travels across the Milky Way… and will continue to stay with you even after you have powered down your thrusters. It is perhaps best described by this quote from their Bandcamp site: “It is music for losing yourself, finding yourself, remembering what was and dreaming of what may be.”
We’ll be adding all seven Echo Grid albums to our rotation over time, and are beginning today with the album “Eventide”. But you don’t have to wait to hear them all! Visit https://echogrid.bandcamp.com/ to preview and purchase the albums for listening anywhere, in virtually any format you could want (MP3, FLAC, and even WAV formats are available for those of you who appreciate lossless CD-quality!)
Please join me in supporting Echo Grid, and be sure to visit the Echo Grid Facebook page to find out the latest release news. Give him a like, and let him know that you heard him first on Radio Sidewinder!
From Wroclaw, Poland comes Tomasz Słoma (aka ivedonethemath) who has been kind enough to allow us to air several tracks here on Radio Sidewinder. Many tracks feature samples from historic moments in space travel, underscored with cool and distinctive electronic music. I think you’ll agree that the themes fit quite well with our favorite video game!
My personal favorites are “malacandrian rollercoasters” and “yet another space song”, but every song will be a favorite to somebody- they’re all very well produced!
I am excited to announce that Radio Sidewinder is adding the music of Tim Wright (aka CoLD SToRAGE) to its broadcast today!
Tim is a Welsh video game music composer most known for his work in video game soundtracks such as Shadow of the Beast II & III, Agony, Lemmings, Wipeout and Colony Wars. You can read more about his career here.
Tim’s music is a perfect fit for Radio Sidewinder. The wide-open spatial landscape of tracks like “The Great Bear” provide contemplative music for explorers, miners, and traders. Adrenaline-boosting anthems such as “Onyx” are a perfect match for those of you who live by combat or thrive on racing. Whatever your occupation in the galaxy, you can find a futuristic companion soundtrack by CoLD SToRAGE!
I highly encourage you to visit Tim’s Bandcamp Site to see what I’m talking about. He covers many different genres, but his own unique style always shines though. It’s a great place to check off some names from your holiday shopping list!
Finally, be sure to check out the CoLD SToRAGE Facebook Page for details on his forthcoming release, Chillout. Only 18 more days remain for the pre-order! I’ve been a fan of Tim’s music ever since Wipeout was released on the first Playstation… and after listening to the teaser samples for Chillout, that release date can’t come soon enough!
Thanks to Tim for supporting our mission to guide and entertain pilots across the universe!
