The return of the mixtape.
No elaborate mixing apart from smooth changes from one track to the next.
Cloudspeaker Vol. 6 is a rather short mix. I had some trouble with my WinAmp player of late and so my nice filing system, recording which tracks I listened to the most, went bust. But I had started to work on the new volume and had ten tracks jotted down already. I kicked one off the list for being too generic, leaving just nine instead of the usual ten or eleven tracks. I hope you’ll enjoy listening to them as much as I do.
Air – Mer du Japon; Rafet El Roman – Bir Melek Diliyorum; Asian Dub Foundation – Rebel Warriors; Kate Bush – How To Be Invisible; Daft Punk – Veridis Quo; Dizzy Gillespie – Manteca (Funky Lowlives Remix); Living Colour – Flying; Genesis – That’s all; Skunk Anasie – Squander
Total time 43.42. Created on September 26th, 2010 2014, at the dormitory of my graduate school in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea.
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.
