Each project undertaken (there's now been 4) is open to any members of cookdandbombd who wants to join in; basically you have to present a track for the album and we make it a bit of a game, inasmuch as we set some simple rules for each project that have to be adhered to (or not). So far each album (apart from the 2013 Xmas one) has required that you get to hear the track before your one, and that's all. The only person who gets to hear the whole album is the one who compiles it. The day of release is the first time everyone gets to hear the completed project.
This time around we started from the centre track (volunteered by hummingofevil). The idea was, that the person following and preceding this track (names chosen out of a hat) would get to hear that track, as well as receiving separate stems and samples from the track that would be free to use (or not) as part of their own new track. When they were completed, more names would be drawn from the hat and the process repeated until the album was complete.
If you want to follow the history of this latest compilation there is thread which tells the entire story of its coming together from the original concept here: www.cookdandbombd.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic,41328.0.html
