10 Seconds is the first studio album by American hip hop producer Jel. It was released on Mush Records on October 22, 2002.[1] The title derives from the limited sampling time of E-mu SP-1200.[8]

Critical reception[edit]

Martin Woodside of AllMusic gave the album 4 stars out of 5, saying: "Built from pieces, albeit very small pieces, of other people's music, Jel has created an energetic, expansive sound that is all his own."[2] He added: "Moody and atmospheric, this varied mix is remarkably cohesive."[2]

Brad Haywood of Pitchfork gave the album a 6.9 out of 10, saying: "Although 10 Seconds doesn't break much new ground, it is a good disc, true to Jel's concept and very listenable."[6] Lisa Hageman of CMJ New Music Report called it "an impressive compilation of a beat-maker whose close attention to detail is definitely paying off."[3]

Writing for Pitchfork, Keith Fullerton Whitman said: "This record encapsulates the sort of subtle melancholy all but missing in contemporary productions."[9]
