The racks are chosen because they "focuses on music roughly contemporaneous to Talk Talk and ‘Mark Hollis,’ from the 1980s and 1990s", and also taken from their site "this mix is comprised of artists and sounds that I’ve loved for many years that have taken me near that singular place, and given me some of same the unnameable mix of joy, sorrow, hope, longing, mystery and meaning. They possess something of the spirit Mark Hollis gave to the world. ‘Elegy‘ is contemplative, sometimes mournful and often haunting. But like Mark Hollis’ music, I hope it will bring you joy through the shadow of sadness, hope in the face of loss".
