There has been a lot of talk in the industry over the last few years about the shelf life of music. How we make it, release it, and move on to the next thing. Forgetting about our past work, where we came from, and in a lot of cases develop a self-depricating attitude towards our previous works as we develop as artists.
I often had this attitude towards a lot of my past work, and in searching for inspiration for new music I sat down and went through my catalogue of music. I reflected on my past accomplishments with these songs. Over the past decade some of my music has been played by the biggest artists in techno, from Adam Beyer, Karotte, Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, and more. The Drumcode podcast, Parklife Festival, Timewarp, amazing! I realized very quickly that although at times we struggle with our present creative selves, reflecting and feeling positive about what we've accomplished in the past can help use through the present and future creative process.
So instead of being self-depricating, I decided to put together this chart, a reflection of that moment of introspection.
Some of my favourite works over the past decade are in here. From oldest to newest in order of release, I hope that you enjoy this journey through my mind and what came out of it.
