“When everything has left you, You are alone When you left everything behind that’s solitude.”

These words, sampled from Schiller’s classic track Solitude, really sum up what this mix is all about. Being in a temporary solitude is not like choosing to be lonely and isolated. It’s a wonderful state of disconnecting from the stress and strains of today’s fast-paced environment and focusing your energy on your well-being and things that truly matter to you.

So what about it all my friend ?
Has life smiled upon your face?
Do you feel the warming emanate
From within the planet’s grace?

Dare you hold the flame aloft for me
To strive under your spell ?
…For should you guide me to tomorrow
We can tomorrow’s burdens break

— From To He Who Holds His Hand Aloft by Marshal Gebbie

When curating and crafting a mix, sometimes two songs don’t just mix well together; with some thoughtful arrangement, they are meant to be played together. In this mix, released 6 years ago under my previous pseudonym DJ Seroton, you will hear two mashups I made of songs that are match-made in heaven. First, Allie Moss’s Wait It Out is sandwiched between two great instrumental tracks by Ólafur Arnalds and Secret Garden. Second, Erothyme and Bliss’s respective songs about gratitude combine for an amplified message.

I also have great news: Chill Pills Radio, a 24/7 online ad-free station, is now available on any Alexa or Google Assistant-enabled device or smart speaker. You can follow the link above or simply say “Alexa, Open Chill Pills Radio” or “Ok Google, Ask Chill Pills Radio to play“.

Back in 2015, this mix premiered my residency on Frisky Radio’s CHILL channel, under my previous pseudonym DJ Seroton. I had previously submitted a promo guest mix and they loved it enough to invite me to join their DJ roster. It was a big step for me and important validation of the image in which I sought to sculpt my chillout mixes, known as Unwind back then.

Their press release put this eloquently:

DJ Seroton believes in music with meaning, and his mixes are a reflection of the care and effort that he puts into sharing that feeling with others.  Filled with uplifting melodies, emotional connections, and complimentary energies, DJ Seroton’s love for the music comes through in his deep and thoughtful mixes. With a passion for chillout, ambient, and trance, he loves to create an enlightening sound that carries a message and elevates all those who listen. Through careful selection and passionate dedication, he connects every beat and every lyric to a purposeful message that creates deep and lasting effects.

DJ Seroton’s new show Unwind will be a welcome addition FRISKY Chill stream and its exceptional chillout and ambient roster. His music will be complementary yet unique, a quality that he always tries to bring out in his sets. His diverse and eclectic sound can be heard in his popular Chillout Sundays guest mix, where each track plays an important place in the complete package.

This mix was released 6 years ago as part of my Drifter ambient series, which I created under my previous pseudonym DJ Seroton. It was the first collaboration I have done with the talented musician Tonepoet, who creates an excellent ambient mix podcast called Spaceman’s Transmissions.

This is what Tonepoet had to say about the mix and our collaboration:

“Music speaks across boundaries of time, distance, and language, and what we present here is proof of that. We had some really great communication in getting this together and our mindsets were in line with each other in that we wanted to construct a seamless journey for your mind to bathe itself within. In creating this mix, we became completely taken in by each others concepts, and that friendly competition only stoked a passion to deliver our finest moments to your ears.”
