In an Instagram post, she wrote:
i am quite thrilled to have had a reason to go through 21 years of music-file collecting .. since my first laptop i have been cd shopping , awkward cassette finding , vinyl searching in secret stores on my travels and gathered them all into a library of gorgeous wave-files . it was only a question of time before i would share them and then in yet another form : them clouds and streams .
a lot of my heart belongs there ... unbelievable memories with friends , loved ones , dj-ing in little bars , all sorts of occasions possible , in boats , cars , planes . here is music for weddings , solitudes , dancing , friendly chess matches or hikes ....
i thank all the musicians who have saved my life repeatedly through the years and hope you enjoy this as much as i have.
