The return of the mixtape.
No elaborate mixing apart from smooth changes from one track to the next.
Cloudspeaker Vol. 8 is called the Black Edition because the selected tracks were the soundtrack to several confidential incidents I was involved in lately. I hope you’ll enjoy listening to the tracks more than I did experiencing some of those incidents.
Intro: Bang Bang; Jesse McCartney – Leavin’ (JFK Remix); The Herbaliser – Gadget Funk; Intro 2: Generique Stephane TV; Gilberto Gil – Three Little Birds; Maria Mena – Just Hold Me; Ocote Soul Sounds and Adrian Quesada – …El Diablo Y El Ñau Ñau (Grant Phabao Remix); Jean Michel Bernard – Stephane Visite Appart; Massive Attack – Man Next Door; Phil Collins – I Don’t Care Anymore; Mark Ronson feat.

Total time 44.33. Created on November 15th, 2010, 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.
