The return of the mixtape.
No elaborate mixing apart from smooth changes from one track to the next.
Cloudspeaker Vol. XI is titled ‘Misfits’ because the selected tracks just don’t fit anywhere. They were the soundtrack to my recent life South Korea, during which I changed accommodations and research assistants, explored Seoul and differing views about sex work, dealt with old adversaries and made new friends, and drank lots of coffee while getting little sleep.
Dicken feat. Milah & Korben – Everything Counts ( Depeche Mode Cover), Max Raabe & His Palace Orchestra – You’re the Cream In My Coffee, Blonde Redhead – En Particulier, Kim Kwang Seok – 일어나! (Ireona!Get up!), Billy Bragg – Valentine’s Day Is Over (Peel Sessions), Hamell On Trial – Civil Disobedience, Kim Dong Jin –목련화 (Magnolia), Accordion Band from Kum Song School (North Korea) – Take On Me (A-ha Cover)
Total time 40.04. Created on March 12th, 2012, in Seoul.
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.
