Calm Pill 54


To Chris, in celebration of his birthday, life, and legacy. He would have been 37 today (Jan 13). Less than a year ago, his passing was our rebirth. It imbued me, his sister and his family with a sense of duty to live out his legacy. The life that he could have had. The life he would have wished for us. Rest in peace my friend.

“So it begins my friend.
The end, but not the end.
The end of a chapter. The end of a stanza.
A sheltered life; the life of my past.

I hear in the air, the call of a Siren.
A call to my soul. A call to my fate.
The Siren of change.
She announces my time.
The time of rebirth.
My hour of epiphany.

I am awake.
I can breathe. I am free.
This is where the new chapter begins.”

Rebirth by The Whisper

Chill Pill 54


“Deeper than any indigo sea
Wider than the largest celestial galaxy
Is the linking web which conjoins life
Whether it be a couple
Or two strangers separated by thousands of miles
We are all connected in a universal way

Discerned by all or none, we are still unified
By a link impossible to hear, see, or touch
It sprawls the universe, entangling infinite threads
Which weave endlessly through space
Creating the ever-changing fabric
That binds all of mankind.”

A Universal Fabric by Matthew Ellis

As 2021 comes to a wrap, it feels like we should be seeing the pandemic off, but the reality is anything but. With more imposed restrictions coinciding with the holiday season, I released this mix to hopefully provide solace to those celebrating alone or unable to spend it with some of their loved ones.

Musically, this mix features 3 tracks from a masterpiece new album by Jon Hopkins called Music for Psychedelic Therapy. Test Card returns with two intriguing pieces from his latest album Music For The Towers. Finally, Martin Domas opens the mix up with a track that inspired this mix. As always, please support the artists you like by streaming or purchasing their music.

Last mix of 2021. I named it Yellow not only after the amazing chillout cover of Coldplay’s song you’ll hear here, but also because I want to look forward to next year with positive intent. It hasn’t been an easy year especially with the loss of my best friend to COVID early on. Alas, such is life. Loss is inevitable, but we choose how to carry it forward with us as we honor their memory by living the life they would have wished for us.

Special shoutout to Test Card (testcardmusic.bandcamp.com) for his opening track that inspired this mix.

Calm Pill 52


It’s my 39th birthday today 🙂 🎂

Inspired by the soothing music of Human Is Alive (humanisalive.bandcamp.com), I wanted this mix to induce reminiscence of happy moments from our past. Amidst the swirl of incessant, attention-demanding world we live in, I sometimes get these fleeting recollections of past events, people, or even things that brought me joy. I made this mix for such moments, so it can hopefully fade to the background while the mind takes a trip down memory lane.

Chill Pill 52


Rays ignite the shadows
Where the sun forgets to fade
Blazing a path of brilliance
When memories are made

Life it has no boundaries
No rules for you or me
An endless path of possibility
Eternal destiny

A fire that burns in the heart
Scorching dark, cold days
Ignite the light of tomorrow
Burning blinding rays

A smoldering pyre of passion
That glows through the soul
A dream that’s not extinguished
A life that’s in control”

Burning Heart by Dean Fraser-Phillips

Calm Pill 51


“In the shadow of a moonlight gaze
a cold and misty type of haze
washes over me as if my soul
has left and made me half, not whole
as night envelops everything around
the darkness heaps its magic on the ground
as features change and dampness marks its place
a pleasing smile appears upon my face
I love that nature calls me every day
Inviting me to meet it on the way
and taking me to places dark, yet grey
showing all its beauty on the way”
