The return of the mixtape.
No elaborate mixing apart from smooth changes from one track to the next.
Cloudspeaker Vol. 9 is titled the Roller Coaster because the selected tracks were the soundtrack to my final semester at graduate school, an incredible time with many ups and also a few significant downs. The time ended all too sudden with my departure for Thailand, where I spent a week in a mixture of slowing down and accelerating. I hope you’ll enjoy this mix+mismatch collection. Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year! Stay tuned for Vol. X in 2011.

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.
