WRACK, who started DJing back in 2009, wanted to release a mixtape that would be the culmination of a decade of musical activity. How he would go about doing this, however, he did not know.
That was until he met the Absurd TRAX crew in Tokyo in February, marking the beginning of a friendship that would continue to deepen, leading to an invitation to Hong Kong in July.
WRACK believes that the Absurd TRAX crew is the coolest one in Asia, with each person in the crew having established their own singular style before showcasing it on the label.
When he first started DJing 10 years ago, WRACK would never have imagined what would transpire in the following decade, with his name featured on posters and records from around the world.
All manner of things, good and bad, have happened in the last 10 years, all of which have helped WRACK grow, and all of which have played their part in the writing of this mixtape. This mixtape is an effort to harness and concentrate the emotional impact of the last decade into a series of musical bursts. We hope that all of its euphoria and catharsis will be communicated to you.
Listen to this mixtape and feel all the emotions of WRACK.
