Cloudspeaker – The Vault

The return of the mixtape.

No elaborate mixing apart from smooth changes from one track to the next.

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. The latest volume is Cloudspeaker XXIII (December 2016).

All volumes were inspired by the time I spent in Germany, the UK, South Korea, Thailand, the Netherlands and Austria. The tracks for Volume 2, XXI + XXII were chosen by my friends Melanie, Suzin and Veit respectively. Get in touch if you’d like your very own Cloudspeaker featuring your recent or all time top ten.
