The return of the mixtape.
No elaborate mixing apart from smooth changes from one track to the next.
Cloudspeaker Vol. 5 is mostly inspired by the soundtracks of movies I’ve recently watched and by tracks I played on Child Voice Radio. Track 2 is a tribute to Guru, the legendary emcee who died from cancer on April 19, 2010. Rest in peace!

Inspired by a friend I compiled a list of my top ten tracks of the last decade – which took me longer than I expected. I picked tracks of ten musicians or bands that impressed me over the last ten years and eventually had to add a bonus track to fit it all in. The result was Cloudspeaker Vol. 1.
