2020 feels like a momentous time. Not only is it the start of a new decade, but it’s been a year of intense global and personal changes. As much as I am looking forward to the future, I'm reflecting back and taking stock of my accomplishments.
To mark the occasion, I’ve compiled dual retrospective releases, covering 2002 - 2020. The release coincides with Bandcamp’s Artist Day, wherein Bandcamp waives their service fees and artists receive the full profit.
This second collection, 02:20 MIND, provides a counterpoint to the dance music of the first (20:02 BODY). It’s a survey of more headphones-listening material, whether ambient and drone-heavy or intricate sound design and beatmaking, but far removed from the dancefloor. It also includes some unreleased and new tracks that I’m happy finally have a home.
