about

Letting Go was originally created for DJ Olive's third sleeping pill mixtape, Triage. Triage was produced in 2007-2008 as part of DJ Olive's installation at the 2008 Whitney Biennial and released on ROOM40 as a CD the same year. This is not the same version used on Triage but an alteration discovered in the lost and found at Skin Tone Riddles recording studio in Brooklyn.
