'Not Today' is a collection of tracks which were produced by Adam Duckworth between 2007 and 2015. During this time the original files for many of these tracks were either lost or recorded under less-than-ideal circumstances, resulting in sonic imperfections in their final form. Rather than abandon them altogether, Adam has chosen to release them collectively as artifacts of a challenging era of transition and experimentation. Some previously-released tracks from various origins are also included in newly-remastered form.
