A really rich, wonderful mix that provides a decade’s worth of celebration. Well done.

absolute brilliance. filling my heart with gratitude. what an incredible concept - different samples from every year the past 10 years (and all from October - yes November counts for year one!). i’m curious, how long did it take to create this track, from research to upload? it sounds completely whole and is if it were recorded this way. a wonderful, inspiring listen.

Thank you very much snowflake. My heart is also full of gratitude for this exceptional place of inspiration and shared talent. This was a lot of fun to do. I wish I had a better answer for how long did it take (some day I’ll time one) but probably a lot less time than you might think. There wasn’t really any “research”, just a quick search through the archives. I hit every October and took the first sample (reverse chronologically, so mostly late October) that appealed to me, not thinking much about what the results would be, wanting the “let it happen” aspect to be in play as much as the “make it happen”. I am always reminded of that interview with Kutiman from April 2009 who said when asked, “how do you know you’re getting the right tempo, key and all of that when you choose samples?” (paraphrasing) His answer - “It’s really magic.”

ah….you must be channeling in those moments, with the mind out of the way. in nerd world such a state is termed “flow” — it really is quite remarkable that you were able to create such a lovely sonic collage with the pieces simply falling into place.

Well it wasn’t entirely magic.

This is beautiful. It is a rich and silky sonic texture spanning the wealth that can be found at ccM. I am so happy I found this place. Good Job Speck!

Brilliant idea, concept and execution. Honestly, this place would’t be the same without you.

My kind of chaotic mix!
