The return of the mixtape.
No elaborate mixing apart from smooth changes from one track to the next.
Cloudspeaker Vol. XXII is titled ‘Fightspeaker’ because all tracks were chosen by my couchsurfer-turned-friend Veit who visited me in Belfast earlier this year while cycling across Ireland and Scotland. This volume includes music from England (Leeds), Germany (Berlin, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Viersen), Iceland (Reykjavík), Norway (Oslo), Scotland (Glasgow), and the US (New Mexico, Washington) [in alphabetical order].
Middleman – Good To Be Back; Beat!Beat!Beat! – Fireworks; Bonaparte – Anti Anti; Katzenjammer – Oh My God; FM Belfast – Lotus (Killing In The Name Of); Lemaitre – Sceptics; Koreless – Ivana; Feine Sahne Fischfilet – Warten auf das Meer (Acoustic); Placebo – Meds; Beirut – Elephant Gun; Hidden Track
Total time 39.08. Created on December 14, 2016, at Casa Limone in South Belfast.
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. So far, two volumes feature tracks chosen by friends of mine. Get in touch if you’d like your very own Cloudspeaker featuring your recent or all time top ten.
