Calm Pill 26

Holding the compass of uncertainties,
Carrying the baggage of memories,
The drifter is drifting along with the tides…

Without boundaries or borders,
Floating with the moment,
The drifter is weaving timeless dreams…

The journey of love and joy,
Build in every pause life takes,
Never holding back the voyage,
The drifter survives in the passion…

Miles and milestones left behind,
The strides always ahead of the past,
Moving forward in the distance,
The drifter fades between the lines of present and future…

from The Drifter by Jayakumar K

What is your happy place? For me, it’s really a state of mind. It can be sparked by a place, person or even a memory that brings me joy. I wanted this mix to be the soundtrack to that; a mix to uplift us and give us hope for a better tomorrow.

Many of us were hoping for a nice little spring break but instead were told to lay low until this virus outbreak is under control. When you can’t travel for a holiday, this mix hopefully gives you the soundtrack of one. It starts off with the classic ‘Holiday’ by the Scorpions, and then progresses through a mix of upbeat and mellow chillout tunes that are hand-picked to give you the feeling of being in a different place, filled with new experiences, culture and different sounds of music.

This mix was actually released exactly 8 years ago under my previous pseudonym DJ Seroton in a series called Unwind. I decided to give those mixes a second life in this channel because they embody the same uplifting feel as the Chill Pills you have come to love.

Nils Feldhus is one the most productive and talented fellow mix producers that I know. He hosts two shows on Proton and Frisky Radio and have been curating ambient and atmospheric electronic music mixes under Helioscope and Planetarium brands since 2011 (right around the same time I started making mixes under the DJ Seroton pseudonym).

I’m especially a fan of his Planetarium selections, which share a lot of the same ambient feel as my Calm Pills (and previously Drifter) mixes. I approached him and he was happy to have me guest mix on his show. I think this turned out to be one of the best ones I’ve created and I hope you like it too.

I would also like to dedicate this mix to my friend Alaeddin Naasani. I’ve known him since college and I was surprised that the day I silently put a “tip me” link on my website (for fans of the show who want to show their support and appreciation), he was the first to do so with a generous amount that I proceeded to use to buy the songs featured on this episode. Thanks Alaeddin!

Chill Pill 24

I’m lonely, walking through
midnight forest is my soul
I’m climbing up above
Praying just to never stop

My storm is painful, it is wild
I sometimes used to be a child
But only now I realize
I must be conscious of my life

To fight the feelings is the hardest
Flames that burn the midnight forest
I am climbing up above
Praying just to never stop

I have been a fan of Guido’s lounge mixes ever since I developed a passion for mixing back in 2011. He is such a great musician, DJ and above all a supportive friend. He graciously accepted my invitation to guest mix on his show on Mixcloud. To my amazement and delight, this mix has topped the charts less than a week since its release! If you enjoy the mix of chillout and lounge tunes presented here, be sure to check out Guido’s vast library of quality lounge mixes that he ever so expertly curates and produces.

“Our eyes are not only viewers, but also projectors that are running a second story over the picture we see in front of us all the time. Fear is writing that script and the working title is, ‘I’ll never be enough.'”

Every season has its special beauty and autumn is no exception. Watching the trees turn from a uniform green to all varieties of gold, yellow and red is a spectacular experience. One can almost be blinded by the fiery brilliance. How can it be that all this beauty is sign of death and decay? With all this beauty there is a certain sadness in knowing that the changing colors foreshadow the arrival of a long cold winter.
