Can you help identify tracks/artists in this ambient-downtempo mix from the early 2000s? Samples inside!

The playlist for a favorite chillout mix has remained a mystery for the past eight or so years. Can you identify these tracks (excluding the two ID'd by YT's content ID system)?

'Canon Ambient Mix' (200?)
01. Triennale - Brian Eno
02. Track? - Artist?
03. Track? - Artist?
04. Track? - Artist?
05. Track? - Artist?
06. Track? - Artist?
07. Track? - Artist?
08. Track? - Artist?
09. Track? - Artist?
10. Track? - Artist?
11. Calling Aventura King - Kid Loco
12. Track? - Artist?

Thanks for the assist (psst...check the description of any sample for a gift of gratitude).

I believe Track 4 may be "No-One In The World (Edit)" by W.FO., off the Excursions in Ambience 2 compilation. Can't find an online source to confirm, though.

Track 9 is Corcovado:

Can't find the instrumental, though.

10 - Jhno - Jung (on album titled "Kwno")
