10 Seconds is the first studio album by American hip hop producer Jel. It was released on Mush Records in 2002, 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 said, "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] It was described by Lisa Hageman of CMJ New Music Report as "an impressive compilation of a beat-maker whose close attention to detail is definitely paying off."[3]
