This article is missing trivia.
The basic details are all here, but if you know some fun facts on these tracks, you should add them.

148 is C418's most recent major, full-length album and the first to be the same style throughout. It features a variety of remixes, some of which had previously appeared on other artists' albums, and several original tracks featuring vocals. It is also the album that was in development for the longest.

Official descriptions

148 is a highly energetic and loud mouthed release full of house and drum&bass tunes. There's a house ballad, there's collaboration with cool artists and there's also some surprises, like Minecraft remixes I haven't shown anywhere else but at live shows.

I've been working on this thing for over five years. At least a few songs I've worked on from the beginning until the last day, even. I wish I would have saved every single version of all of these songs so I could see how they changed, but before 2012 I really didn't understand what backing up really meant, haha. This album is also a super interesting evolution of my own sound. When I started making it, I was all into all-analog. When I finished making it, I wasn't really concerned about using digital means to reach the same goal anymore. When I started making this, I was a scared composer, fresh off of Minecraft fame. Unsure what the future would bring me. And when I finished making it, I became a jaded composer, hypercritical of every single piece I ever created, worried that my old work shows that I'm not good enough.

That really doesn't matter anymore though, because I think I'm happy with this album.

It just has been plaguing me for too long. I think that you can't be happy with anything if you've stared at it too close for too long. Which is why I decided to stealth release it without any announcement. I've had incredibly unproductive years recently, and a lot of it had to do with being burnt out and partly being somewhat depressed. This album didn't really help my psyche either. By releasing this, right now, I hope I can get to a clean slate and start beginning work on new stuff. And, of course, maybe it stops making everyone worried that I stopped composing altogether.

So, this is it! 148 has been started on a gigantic computer system somewhere in East Germany in 2011 and finished on a tiny laptop in Toronto, 2015.

I really hope you like it! And if you don't, I'm not dead yet. I'll have more music. So much more.

“185” is a collaboration between Baiyon and me, a sort of mix of my neverending house rhythm and Baiyon’s impeccable knowledge of minimal techno.
—C418, c418.org
Daniel Rosenfeld, the German sound artist perhaps better known as C418, is responsible for the sound of Minecraft. I remember him sitting behind me and listening during a DJ gig in San Francisco, which led to a collaboration, which you can hear on his 148 album.
—Baiyon, Baiyon.com

Connections

  • Also released on Baiyon's album We Are as a slightly longer "solus" version which starts and ends normally instead of fading from Kompass and into Jimtention.
  • An earlier version of this track was later released on 2 years of failure as 185_pre. As this track is only credited to C418 and not to Baiyon, it seems to be the original version without Baiyon's additions.

Trivia

  • The longest track on 148.

月が太陽に恋文を書いていた

君の光が最も明るく輝いた

星たちに囲まれてひとりぼっちの空夜

あなたとまた会えるように
君の光を照らし続ける
約束

月が太陽と出会い愛情を求めて
今知った

これは最大距離で遥か溢れる気持ち消えなかった

星たちに囲まれてひとりぼっちの空
夜探してる

あなたとまた会えるように
君の光を照らし続ける

Despite the fact now you stole my score
After all the anger you have put me through
You really thought I’d be liking you?
Go away, never see me again
Please go away, never see me again

“Ample Time” was a song made out of frustration when I had to work abroad for a company that couldn’t get their sh*t together. I just wrote this song while waiting on them.
—C418, C418.org
One of the tracks of my most recent album, 148. I was always happy with how this track came out. I started making this when I was frustratingly bored in Orlando and had nothing else to do except sit on my laptop and make music. Turns out it was time well spent.

Trivia

  • A variation of this track called All the Time appears in the PlayStation 4 rhythm game Amplitude[1]
    • The track title Ample Time is likely a mashup between the game's title Amplitude and the variant's track title All the Time.

Album trivia

  • First publicly mentioned on 2012-01-26:
Every year I want to release a new original album, and this year I already started planning. I at least know the name and the cover, and the thematics. WHICH I WILL KEEP SECRET UNTIL I START WORKING ON SOME MUSIC.
—C418, blog post
  • The second longest album after Minecraft - Volume Beta. If Septic Shock to Biome Party is considered one song given how each track fades into the next, it also contains the longest song (with second place being Mixes).
